When she escaped, Sadie would wander down to the police station nearby as the police officers would share their chicken biscuits with her. Eventually, the officers told her owners to sign her over since they weren’t caring for her. The officers brought Sadie to the local shelter in North Carolina. Sadie was in very rough shape with a cantaloupe-sized tumor on her side and a small one in her mouth.
This is quite the sad story, isn't it? The sharing of Sadie's story has also meant that there are hopeful adopters that want to meet her. I got an e-mail late Friday night from a coordinator that had someone that wanted to come Saturday morning. For several reasons, I wouldn't let them come this weekend. One reason that may seem and probably is totally selfish, is that I really want this time to get to know Sadie, and let her settle in just a bit before she moves on to the next chapter of her life.
