A Shelter Dog's Poem

Once upon a time, you see, there was this little pup;
For reasons unknown to me, his family gave him up

Maybe it was chewing everything that he could find,
Maybe they were busy and just didn't have the time

They took him to the shelter and they just left him there
Outside, alone, in the cage...shivering and scared

Even though they knew inside, if he went through those doors,
He may never have the chance to find a home like yours

He sat there crying silently wondering what he did
That was so bad that they just had to leave him as they did

However fate was smiling on that little pup that day,
Because a lady saw him and she whisked him right away

He got a second chance at life that others may have not
And now he's in a loving home with everything he wants

Everyday he gets that love that he was looking for
And silently is thankful for when she walked through that door

Others may not have this chance so open up your heart
And adopt a shelter dog to take and give him/her a brand new start
