My name is Pruitt. I am a 8-year-old (plus) female shepherd mix. I have been a resident at the Betty Gambrell/Swainsboro Animal Shelter for over two years. I was brought in by shelter staff after a report was made that my owner was abusing me. I have been here a long time and wish someone would come and adopt me.
For a while, when potential adopters would come in to look, I would jump up and wag my tail and beg so hard for them to notice me, but they would see my gray muzzle and walk past my pen. Now when people walk in, I think, “What is the use of getting up? They’ll just pass me by.” Here I sit day after day in this pen, lonely and sad. I don’t want to die here. I’m losing all hope of ever finding someone to love me. The shelter staff here are good to me, but it’s not the same as having a home and a family to call my own. How I long to have someone I can welcome home with a wagging tail when he or she comes home from work, to have someone I can follow around the yard, to be there when they’ve had a bad day and need a companion.
I may be a senior dog with a gray muzzle, but don’t let that fool you. I still have a lot of living and loving to do. Please come down to the shelter and meet me. Take me out of my pen into the grassy area and spend some time with me. I would really enjoy the time out. Let me show you what a special dog I can be if you will give me the chance. I’m waiting. Please don’t pass me by again.
If you decide to adopt me, my adoption fee, spaying fee, and rabies shot will be paid for by the Emanuel County Humane Society. Free adoption! You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. You will be gaining a loving and loyal companion. I will be gaining a home and family to call my own.
