Sadly, no one ever did, and since it was a high-kill shelter, I was in great danger. Luckily the shelter staff noticed that I was the NICEST little dog whose acquaintance they’d ever met, so they contacted the KY rescue lady they knew and she got me out of there and sent me up to join the CDR foster program!
