A woman from Texas, Melissa, has narrated how she adopted a cute dog, despite having decided earlier with her husband that they didn’t want another dog in their home.
“We’ve already been chosen by several outdoor cats, who we’ve had fixed, and who we love and take care of. We also have one indoor kitty, two rescued guinea pigs, and a chocolate lab,” She wrote, explaining why her family didn’t want another dog. One cold winter night, a poor dog found herself at Melissa’s back porch door. According to Melissa, it was not uncommon to see dogs and cats on the streets who had been dropped off by people who no longer wanted them.
“When I saw this poor girl, skinny, cowering, and frightened on my back porch, I knew she had chosen us. I reached out to pet her, and she flinched. I knew then that whoever had dumped her had also abused her. Still, when I told her that we do not hurt animals at this house, she seemed to understand.”
Melissa took the dog in, fed her, and gave her a place to sleep that night. It’s been nearly a month since the dog, later named Gidget, made her way to Melissa’s back porch. She is now completely transformed, as she is well taken care of and loved by Melissa, her husband, and their three girls.
