Gretchen May was browsing shelter websites one day, looking for another dog to add to her already full household, when she came across a post about Blossom. She immediately felt a pull toward the sad little dog, and despite Blossom’s appearance and obvious issues, something was telling May that this was the dog she had been looking for.
“She just looked so pitiful in the shelter photo, yet so sweet at the same time,” May told The Dodo. “I just felt so bad for her, as itchy and uncomfortable as she was, sitting in the shelter untreated on a stray hold for seven days! And I wondered who else would be crazy enough to take a chance on such an unknown mess.”
