When her family abandons her after 7 years, a shelter dog is really confused

One dog in particular stood out when a group of canines from the congested Habersham County Animal Shelter in Georgia came to The Little Guild in West Cornwall, Connecticut. When chatting to the manager of the Habersham County shelter, the shelter staff discovered that everyone in Georgia had also recognized Jodi’s uniqueness.


According to Kelsey Turick, a worker at The Little Guild, “Jodi meant a lot to the employees and volunteers from their shelter.” When volunteers learned that we were going to take Jodi in and find her a home, they sobbed.

Jodi, who had lived with her family for seven years, was turned over to the shelter in Georgia. She was scared and unsure of what was going on when she arrived to The Little Guild, and the staff members who welcomed her could see she didn’t know where her family had gone.

When [she] first arrived, Turick said, “[she] was really afraid and all she wanted to do was go home.”


Since then, Jodi has adapted to her new environment considerably better and formed relationships with staff members and volunteers. She has grown to trust her new pals, which has enabled her amazing personality to emerge, making everyone fall even more in love with her.

Turick also adds:“She has a great personality and always wants to be with people. She loves to play fetch outside but also loves to snuggle up under a blanket with you. She is an older gal but still has lots of energy and loves her daily walks … She is a very special girl and means a lot to us.”


It’s incredible that Jodi hasn’t been adopted yet, especially considering how well she would fit in with practically any family. She adores children, cats, and other dogs and truly just wants to spend time with her loved ones whenever she can. She has received interest in adoption and a family is scheduled to see her, so maybe her search for a home will be completed very soon.

All of Jodi’s friends, both in Georgia and Connecticut, are eagerly awaiting the arrival of the appropriate family for her.
