Well, he came on a truck, a county truck. He was picked up as a stray and taken to The Ellis County SPCA. When he arrived, he was very scared, as that truck was big and loud, and there were other dogs that didn’t seem very happy. When he finally arrived he was put in a small cage in a cool room until a very nice lady removed him. She looked him over real good and then took his temperature, gave him a pill, poked him with a couple of needles and put him in a bigger cage in a bigger room with a lot more dogs. Todd didn’t like this room because it was big and loud and he was so tiny. He just couldn’t figure out why he couldn’t go back to his home.
He stayed in this big, cold place for what seemed like forever. He didn’t like it, but at least he was not hungry or thirsty or dodging cars. In fact, given the alternative, it wasn’t so bad. People would walk around and look at all of his neighbors. Sometimes they would stop and look at him and he could tell they were being kind and saying nice things to him. But, then they would leave and he was alone again. Days and nights came and went. Todd began to get used to the daily routine, but he longed for human companionship, he needed a forever home. Someone just has to have a place in their heart for Todd.
