Scout and Hendrix
Earlier this year I had to move back in with my parents. It was an incredibly stressful time, made even worse by the fact that I was unable to bring my 2 furbabies there with me...
I adopted Hendrix in 2008, and he has been my shadow ever since. He's an American Bulldog/Lab mix, born in the south, and he was an adorable, if stubborn puppy (I attribute it to the bulldog in him). He's my best friend. In 2011, my family expanded when Scout came along. He was a feral "potcake" from Turks and Caicos, where many dogs run wild. Unfortunately they are also abused, Scout included. A wonderful rescue group there made it their mission to help as many dogs as possible, including a dog being attacked by a machete, and Scout. Scout was fostered by a friend of mine, and his personality is a little more complicated than happy-go-lucky Hendrix. He went to 3 different homes before I told his foster that if he came to my home, that would be it for him, he would be a permanent member of the pack. And he has been. He's easily the smartest dog I've ever owned, smarter than most dogs I've encountered. He understands more about his world than you expect, like when I'm upset, and he comes to lay by me to comfort me. He's turned out to be a great dog, and my other best friend.
Moving home is rough, but not being able to bring my dogs was breaking my heart. Hendrix would have been fosterable, and may have found a home, despite his age, but because of Scout's challenging personality, I knew I would never find him a home, and he would either spend the rest of his days in a shelter, or be euthanized. And the fact is, I didn't want to lose either of them, even to another good home. They are my best friends, my family, my babies, what gets me through the day. I spent hours poring over the internet, trying to find a resource that could help me. At the eleventh hour, I was directed to Seer Farms. Fingers crossed, I emailed, and was relieved to hear that they would be able to provide temporary foster for both my dogs. It was like a weight had been lifted from shoulders: not only did I not have to give them away, but there was a place that could give them a home, with a staff that would love my dogs like they were their own. Seer Farms saved my heart from being broken, and while they aren't sitting at my feet right now, I know they are well taken care of until I am back on my feet and our family can be reunited.
Seer Farms is a very unique place, and runs almost exclusively on generous donations. They need your help to keep doing the good work that they do, keeping families together in their time of need. Please consider donating to help keep them providing homes for animals in need.
