Haiku Heights 206...Rescue




Eyes filled with lonely

My heart knew you at first glance

Rescued and so loved




Max came to mind for this week's Haiku Heights prompt.  Two years ago, lost in the ice and snow of a bitter December, paws worn, thin and hungry, he was found by a policeman who took him to the local shelter.  Two weeks later, he came home with me.

  6. Ah, cute. All three of our dogs (and past dogs) are/were rescue dogs too. It takes us months to get some of our dogs to learn to trust. It is very gratifying to earn trust and affection from these dogs.
    cute pic!

    1. After two years, Max still has some fear issues of sudden noises, he won't walk on the kitchen floor, and runs away when I load the dishwasher, but he's improved so much and is such a sweet wee boy, I have hope he'll eventually realize he's safe now.
