Being alone was the worst. At only a few months old, the little white and tan terrier mix was absolutely certain that he was not meant to be all by himself in the world, and yet, that’s where he was. Lost, alone, and scared too. He let out a little whimper, stood up, and trotted solemnly down the long road ahead. Instead of a fancy collar, he was wearing muddy leaves; instead of dining on crunchy kibble, he was digging in the dirt for scraps. But above everything else he’d dreamed of getting someday, what Pop Tart longed for most of all was friends.
When Pop Tart was found all by himself, wandering the streets, he was wearing his heart on his paw – ready beyond measure to love and to “heel.” The team at the Connecticut Humane Society was able to provide quick and comprehensive care to Pop Tart – from getting him out of his vulnerable state with the medical attention and nourishing meals he needed, to promptly sending him into foster care where he’d get his first sense of home, Pop Tart would never want for anything again.
At his foster home, Pop Tart’s personality came roaring to life: he discovered the joy of sticking his head out of car windows, the thrill of the chase with new dog friends, and he came to know affection in the form of pats and hugs and silly, excitingly high-pitched voices from the humans.
And then, at the happiest he had ever been, Pop Tart’s wish came true, and a family came forward to adopt him. Pop Tart found more than friendship on his incredible journey: he found love. Because of CHS’ generous donors, Pop Tart can now be found tagging along on lots of car rides, snuggled often amidst his very own doggy siblings and their mountains of toys, and constantly heeling besides a pair of humans of his own. And Pop Tart will never ever be on his own again.
