KEATS....The face of a rescue dog.

October 1, 2018

What does the face of a rescue dog look like? Over the past 6 years, we've met many, all different but yet the same. There were all breeds, all ages, male, female, small, medium, and large. Each face became embedded in our hearts. Their eyes told a story.... some of survival, some of loss, some of hope, some of confusion. We met Keats back in January. He was an energetic guy with a smile that would melt your heart. How could this guy not have a family? He started in the enrichment training program and we watched him thrive. Swimming was great exercise for his body, his mind, and his spirit. After class, it's the park and a beef and chedder with his best friend Tom. Although Keats gets a break from his kennel for swim or a walk, he still is waiting for his hero. In fact, he's been waiting for over 1600 days. It's heartbreaking that a great dog like Keats along with the many others wait for days, months, even years. I often lay awake at night, wondering what we can do to stop this cycle. Sometimes, I wonder if I'm cut out for this, but then I look at Keats and all the other "faces of a rescue dog" and I realize we are their hope, their faith, and their voice.

Keats is available for adoption through The Samadhi Legacy Foundation. Please share his story
