Travels of a Homeless Dog
No Where to Go
Man's Best Friend
Life is hard but it will be far easier if you will adopt me into your home. We all need attention and a little love. I like to talk or just listen but being alone makes life drab and miserable. I am not even a dog but just a mutt to most. If you give me a chance I will show you that I am just like you. Far from perfect but I try to please and make people happy whenever possible. I need medical help but do not have insurance or a way to the clinic for that matter. If you let e lay on your floor with a blanket I would be most thankful but even letting me stay on the porch will give me a roof over my head for the night. Emotionally, physically and almost mentally crushed by my circumstances, I feel lost in this cruel world. I want to have dinner with a family everyday. I would settle for just on the Holidays. If I can stay for a while you can keep me on a leash if you feel it is necessary. Please show me some compassion.
In Need of Help
Roaming the Streets
I roam the streets in search of shelter and food. Crumbs from the garbage dumpsters of the fast food restaurants are better than nothing at all. Finding a place to lay my head is just as hard because I want to feel safe and secure which seems impossible. When I sleep will I be harmed or killed? Bugs and rats are at my feet while I dream which upsets me when I awake. Times are hard and nobody seems to care at all. I go to the woods to escape the heat and I roam alleyways in search of a crumb. If it's a hassle I'll go away but can you spare anything cause as you can see I am in dire straights. A car might run me over when I travel but it's okay because I am nothing more than dirt to most people. I need a bath and the pond water does not really work because it makes you stink even worse and bugs tend to attach to you in the water. I have traveled the sewer but the stench and the rats are just too much to handle. My feet are starting to hurt and my paws are cold.
Have you ever been homeless before?
Country Dog Can Survive
Tired & Hungry
I get extremely hungry and I also get exhausted and tired. Where do I find my meals. The fast food dumpsters are the best place most of the time. Laying my head down to rest is a harder task indeed. Will I get in trouble for trespassing when I just need to sleep. Do not call the puppy police on me please. Many times I went more than a day without any food although I did gets some river water to quench my thirst. If I ask for help I get ridiculed and if I beg I get a beating. I will never hurt nobody but I must get some food. I can steal but I better not do that. My options are tiny so I decide to beg at the interstate exit when automobiles are at the traffic light. Some have pity on me while others laugh or chastise me which hurts my feelings to no end. Scraps are great so next time you are done eating feed them to the homeless dog/man who really have growling stomachs. So when you see me sitting there looking like I haven't eaten in days then throw me a bone so to speak. I have learned humility and how to survive in the streets of rage but it is hard and stressful to no end.

I Feel Trapped in a Corner
I am scared of the unknown. Where am I going to live on a daily basis? Eat? I am freezing at times and other days I am extremely hot and thirsty. I will work for food or at least be a close companion. I am man's best friend. Woman's too! I do not now what is going to happen from one hour to the next. I must overcome my fears with faith. They say that all dogs go to Heaven. I hope so because I fear I am knocking on Heaven's door. I battle demons and ticks every single day. Do not treat me like trash because I am someone even if I'm very dirty and I smell bad. What if I am in serious pain and need medical attention. I will get rolled eyes and half the help I may really need. I eat out of the garbage but I have to be careful not to be caught or I will get shooed away. I deal with fleas, ticks and pricks. I accept mange and people who look at me strange but having it rough and falling on hard times does not make me different than anyone else.

Show Some Compassion
I just Want Someone to Pet Me
I am on my last legs. A meal at a shelter sounds great but it is a 13 mile hike. Then again my stomach is growling. On my journey I am being followed and can smell the aggressor. I want family and friends but I am surrounded by strangers and enemies. Either I shall die from disease and sickness or the heartlessness of men. I need a little love to help me cope. I will work for food, money or shelter, of course. I am a good boy I promise and if you gave me the time of day I would cherish the moment. I wonder if I am a -9 or a human being. Sometimes, I cannot even tell the difference.
