Kellie was a beautiful German Shepherd who was nearly two years old. She was found at a shelter with her sister Joy. Heart-worm positive and full of fleas. Scars were left on her body as it was obvious that she was taught to fight. Joy was used for breeding. Not even two and Kellie was fighting while Joy was breeding making people money.
Who are these people, where are these people? I will never find them, never get to speak my peace or bring them to justice. The anger comes to a boil each time I think of the abuse. I see too much abuse in this world towards animals. It needs to stop!
Kellie’s aggressive behavior brought her to the point in which her owner felt he had to put her down after she could no longer be trusted with others. She was always on watch, ready to jump and would bite. I loved her, she was sweet to me and I trusted her with my life. If I could have made her know that she did not have to be afraid and life would be good for her that would have been my wish. She did not deserve her start nor her finish. It was all due to the abusive behavior of others.
I have struggled in my heart with the what if’s and why did he put her down without some kind of behavioral therapy first? Why didn’t anyone listen? Why didn’t the rescue that she was adopted from know of this, or did they? Too many things go through your mind when you are in pain and second guessing. I blame many people. I blame myself too. I played a small part in her life and loved her. I could see her aggression and I tried to help her. Now it’s over. No one would want to see a child mauled or anyone harmed. It still does not take away the pain or the injustice. One thing is for certain Kellie is no longer frightened, aggressive, angry or struggling with the demons of abusive people who had her first. She is in a peaceful home with others and her Creator. One day I will see her again.
She has left a scar on my heart that will always remain. I honor her this way by letting the world know a German Shepherd named Kellie existed. She is beautiful in spirit and body. She has a soul that is bright and loving. She was given a rotten start in which she did not deserve. She was playful, goofy and very snuggly. Kellie pranced when she walked quickly and liked to step up on you while licking your face. She loved toys and jerky treats. She liked the garbage pail too. She had a deep bark with her pointy ears up and meant business if anyone tried to harm those she loved. She is love. Whomever did not get to know her is unfortunate. They lost out. Whomever is making excuses for her behavior that doesn’t understand is an idiot. They lost out and me personally will honor, cherish and preserve her memory in more ways than one.
Kellie- I love you. Xo
