Every dog is a good dog. They deserve to have a happy family. While some haven’t found a home yet some are abandoned by people who adopt them. These people ᴅᴜᴍᴘ their dogs somewhere and leave some messages or not. They finish sending away their furry friends. They must do it for some reason but not all understandable.
Last Friday, people visiting a city park in Chillicothe, Ohio, discovered the dog locked inside a wire ᴄᴀɢᴇ that someone had left on the ground. There was no sign of her owner — except the hand-scrawled messages that were written over her white fur in black permanent marker.
One side of her body read “FREE”, and the other said, “I am a gift from God”. “Good home only” was written on her forehead. The people who found her didn’t wait long to call the police, and soon she was taken in by Ross County Humane Society who renamed her Marvella (a reference to the French word “merveille” which means “miracle”). They took responsibility to take care of the poor puppy and find her a new, loving home.
According to Sarah Cantrell, office manager and adoption coordinator at the Ross County Humane Society in Chillicothe, Ohio, the poor pup was dumped in Yoctangee Park ahead of the Feast of the Flowering Moon Festival, which takes place during Memorial Day weekend.
Ross County Humane Society took the dog in and named her Marvella. They had never seen anything like it.
“We were all kind of shocked,” office manager and adoption coordinator Sarah Cantrell told. “It just seems like a childish thing to do.”
While the markers seem crude and demeaning, a more serious issue is that the dog was dumped outside and exposed at the beginning of summer. Sarah says that many abandoned dogs do not survive being left on their own.
“Marvella was given a bath to remove as much of the permanent marker as possible, and spent the day in the office with the shelter staff getting lots of treats and attention,” wrote Ross County Humane Society in a Facebook post. “She has received her first round of vaccines and will be available for adoption later this week.”
