A woman posted an awesome list of the things she loves about the dog she rescued on Reddit recently.
Spokey, a Labrador mix, was transferred to Maryland SPCA from a high-kill shelter in West Virginia, where she had just given birth to a litter of puppies.
On December 31, 2014, Marla paid a visit to the Maryland SPCA and immediately fell in love with her.
“She was the only dog who didn’t bark or jump. She sat there very somberly, and I just knew that I could be the one to save her,” Marla told The Dodo.
Unfortunately, the shelter said that Spokey wasn’t ready to be taken home at the time so Marla waited.
“I came back every day until she was finally available,” Marla said. “It broke my heart to have to walk away every time they told me she wasn’t ready. She even started pressing her paw against the glass when I was around.”
One year later, Marla made another post – one that will warm your hearts this during this cold season.
Marla and Spokey have lived together for a year. They’ve got to know each other well and Marla’s post list her favorite things about her adorable rescue dog and best friend.
Here’s what she says.
1. “Spokey is a princess.”
She loves spending time outside … as long as she has all of the comforts of inside with her. So precious.
2. “Spokey can’t sleep unless she is touching someone.”
She just never wants to be alone — snuggling is her favorite.
3. “Spokey is the happiest, silliest, most loving dog I’ve ever had.”
“I couldn’t be happier that Spokey and I found one another,” Marla said. “She needed me as much as I needed her.”
Awww. Isn’t that sweet? What’s your favorite thing about your dog?
