Each night before I close my eyes I say a little prayer. I ask God to protect all his creatures and for no one to be homeless; I know what that’s like. My name is Louise and I am two years old.  Before I was rescued and placed in foster care, I didn’t know where my next meal would come from. I had no one to call my own and I wandered in the woods along the highway. At times, I would come out from the woods and sit and watch as cars passed by. I wondered if they could see me sitting there. Did they know that I had no one or did they care?  Some would look my way and others would look the other way, passing me by day after day. I felt invisible. I often cried myself to sleep longing to be held and loved. Longing for someone to care. Did my life matter to anyone? DO I MATTER, I’d cry out as they pass me by. Heartbroken, I’d sit there day after day. Then one day a car stopped. Two humans came my way. I was scared and didn’t know what to do, so I froze. Their approach was kind and gentle. I was trembling while they were patiently coaxing me to go with them. One of the humans whispered to me, she said, “I’m not leaving without you”.  She put her hand on me and I just fell into her. I was overwhelmed with emotion, I wasn’t invisible anymore. From that point on I realized that my life does matter and I am experiencing what it’s like to be loved. Since being in foster care, I have gained self-esteem, which I lacked before. I have learned to trust people and now I am seeking attention from my human friends. I enjoy being loved on and ask quite often to be pet and have my belly rubbed as often as possible. I have discovered kissing and I believe I’m addicted to giving out kisses to anyone who will let me. I have been compared to “butter”, when you pet me, I melt into you. If you are interested in adopting me, please go to the rescue’s website and submit an application. Once your application is approved, then we can set up a meet. If you have any specific questions, please email foreverhome4dogs@aol.com. Hope to hear from you soon, love Louise.
