A Female Jordanian presently Adopted
Tasha here and guess what ..... I met my new parents and they loved me! As soon as my quarantine period is over, I'm moving in with them. I can't wait, I just know that Animatch picked the very best home for me. Thanks to all who applied, it is nice to finally feel wanted.
Tasha here and I choose to believe that “after bad luck comes good fortune”. Thanks to all the nice folks who have applied to adopt me, I’m happy to feel the love. Except, my adoption must be postponed for a little while. Apparently, I have ringworm; now don’t get all queasy and grossed out; it isn’t a worm but a fungus. The bad news is that ringworm is contagious and the good news is that it is not life threatening and very treatable. So, for now I can’t go to a home with other animals (cats, dogs, horses) and humans would need to take measures to decontaminate my dog beds, blankets, etc. My treatment plan is topical ointment and oral medication. I will go back to the Vet in a few weeks to be checked. And you thought the story ended here – nope. I also tested positive for Anaplasmosis (a tick-borne disease similar to Lyme with similar symptoms). I am on meds for that too and I have no signs. I think that if I can survive gunshots and living as a street dog, I’ve got this covered too. Please tune in for updates. In the meantime, I’ll keep on dreaming of my happily ever after.
“Take a deep breath, it’s just a bad day not a bad life!”
Tasha here and I arrived at Animatch “special delivery” from Jordan. Life for a stray or street dog is not fun, that’s for sure. Actually, no matter what part of the world you come from being a stray is a challenge; you have to make your own way in the world with no one to depend on. Days are spent foraging for food, looking for places to rest or sleep, and avoiding conflict with humans. In fact, I wasn’t totally successful at escaping conflict; I am missing a few toes because of shrapnel wounds. The bullets may have missed me but they did not miss my feet. I am healing and I will be just fine. I do remember before I left Jordan meeting kind humans with gentle hands and they promised life would be much better as a family pet. A patient and gentle family is just what I need to boost my confidence. Truth is, I’ll take love and affection wherever I can get it! I want to learn so many new things about my life as a family dog with the help of a confident but easy-going guardian. Also, I am open to a low key canine buddy who will take it slow with me. I just know I have the qualities of a great companion. Would you take a chance on me? Please fill in the Adoption Form if you would like to offer me my first real home.

Am I ready for a dog?
Adopting a dog is a life-changing event--or should be. A dog needs lots of time and attention and you've got to be there every day to give it.
