I have a long, sad story. But luckily, it has a happy ending. A year or so ago, my name was Afena. I was chained in a backyard with another cattle dog named Baby. My owners didn't like us for some reason, because they decided not to feed us. Day after day we would lay on our chain and were so very hungry. We could knew that there was a boxer in the house that the people liked. He got to eat. He got to stay in the house. Not us. Help did not come until Baby died from starvation. The neighbors complained of a smell and the police investigated. The smell was Baby. My owners were arrested and taken away. I went to a vet who fixed me up and fed me. From there I went to a shelter until my owners were procecuted. Then, I went to Tennessee Valley Cattle Dog Rescue in Chattanooga. It was there that I got a new name. I was told that I was going to get a new life, too. My foster family came and picked me out out of all of the other dogs there. I have been living with them since March. They are very nice and feed me every day. I get to stay in the house and get all kinds of attention now. Today my foster mom told me that I have been adopted. I am going to live with a very nice lady in Alabama. She is very excited to get me. I am so glad that I saved some kisses for her!
