UPDATE (10/27/11): Brandi is safe. She has found a forever home. Thank you to her new guardian for saving her, and to those who shared her story.
This is a red alert plea from Whispering Woods Animal Rescue about Brandi, a 10-month-old spayed female pit mix located at First Alert Greenville, South Carolina (GCACS).
Brandi, ID# A14177264, was found roaming the streets scared, hungry, and alone and was brought to GCACS. She was one of the lucky ones who found a home.
But it wasn’t for forever.
Brandi fell victim to one of the most familiar excuses for surrendering a dog: Her new adoptive family was moving and they couldn’t take her with them. So sadly, once again, she was on the hunt for a new home.
Once an animal is fortunate enough to escape the shelter, they never want to go back. This has to be so confusing to a dog when its home is suddenly taken away. They adjust and love their new guardians and then the rug gets pulled out from under them. They just can’t understand why. And we can’t explain it to them.
But again Brandi got lucky. A foster stepped up to take her in, and Brandi was once again ready to give her unconditional love and loyalty to another.
Brandi’s foster was singing her praises, saying things like she’s awesome, doing great, gets along well with the other dogs, loves people, her crate, and she’s a lap dog that loves to be loved.
Everything appeared to be going great. Right?
Well on October 24th, she appeared in the RIP folder at the shelter. It was a mistake, but she is extremely urgent.
Apparently Brandi did well with dogs her size or larger, but small dogs and puppies that were brought in scared her, and it turned into aggression. The foster admits that maybe she didn’t introduce them the right way, but the bottom line is Brandi is once again back at the shelter.
She can’t be fostered or adopted. Only a rescue can pull her and her pull fee will be paid. There is at least another $50 pledged to the rescue and an offer for transport.
They are pulling out all the stops to save her. There is an event going on right now to bring attention to her dire situation.
Brandi is running out of time. Tomorrow may be her last chance to escape euthanasia.
