We just love adoption happy endings.
She’s a one-eyed, deaf pit bull that’s been under the care of Animal Welfare League of Queen Anne’s County on Maryland’s Eastern Shore for more than 3 years.
Scarlett was brought to the shelter last December 2013 because of chronic medical problems that her previous owner couldn’t afford to treat. This includes severe eye infections – which could’ve been a factor to her deafness, while her eye was already removed at this time.
Although currently healthy, the 42-pound dog is not really as active as the other dogs in the shelter. According to shelter workers, one of her most favorite hobby is to lounge in a relaxed state for the most part of the day – albeit offering a “submissive grin” once a person she likes comes over to pet her. Scarlett’s sweet disposition is what endeared her to the shelter workers in the 3 years she has spent with them.
Shelter manager Kirstyn Northrop Cobb said:
She is the most cuddly dog ever! She will just melt into you and sit on your lap and give you kisses.
Although she has wholly captured the hearts of everyone in the shelter, it took a long time for Scarlett to be adopted. Because for one, she’s not really crazy about other dogs, so households that already have dogs are out of the question. At the same time, the shelter’s staff have grown so attached to her that they don’t promote her as much as their other dogs. She shies away from the spotlight as well – not jumping up to greet potential adopters like the other dogs.
