A Best Friend, An Angel for Life...
Hello, my name is Vanilla Chip. I am a handsome 8 year old purebred Cocker Spaniel. I have experienced some big life changes recently (and learned some sad life lessons). After 8 years with a family (the only life I knew), I thought I was an integral and important part of their lives, but that was all a lie. Although I did nothing wrong, one day they simply disposed of me, abandoning me at an urban kill pound. Upon my arrival, I overheard the shelter staff say that, due to my age and the fact that I am male, I do not fall within a "highly adoptable" category of pet. So in the cold pit of my stomach, I knew that I had been left for dead. Evidently all the years of love, loyalty and affection that I had laid at my family's feet were worth nothing to them at all. My heart is broken, of course. And I find myself wondering, "When love leaves, where does it go?" This is a mystery I just do not understand, because even in the face of terrible betrayal, my own heart carries all the love that has accrued there for years and years ... it just no longer has a home. Although I am grateful to rescue for taking me in, of course it is not the same as having a family of my very own. Can you offer my heart a place to rest and all my love a place to go? I have grown up with kids and am good with other pets, so should make an excellent family dog. Although I am a bit older, I am nevertheless a healthy boy who has been neutered, microchipped, is current on all shots and has tested heartworm negative. I will even be treated to a dental and a professional grooming prior to going home.

Affectionately yours, Vanilla Chip XXOO
