Motley and his sister were displaced by the Nebraska floods in the Spring of 2019. With no home, their owner relinquished them to Hearts United for Animals. Motley’s sibling got adopted, but Motley remained behind. Diabetic and blind, Motley was not a great candidate for adoption. He was lost without his sister. He had depended greatly on her, and suddenly she was gone. He went into therapeutic foster care so that he could live out his life in a home with a family. Motley was depressed for a few months in his foster home. Much of his time those first months was spent sleeping or tiptoeing around the house, with his head hung and his little stubby tail tucked down. He even avoided play sessions with the other dogs in his new home. He just needed to be sad for awhile. But Motley soon began to realize that he could start over and still enjoy life. There were things to be happy about….doggy playmates, loving humans, good food, and a warm bed. Now he greets his humans at the door with a wagging tail and a sweet kiss.
