The heartbreaking thing, as Enscoe and Wareham see it, is that what likely stood in the way of Reeva getting adopted for so long is that she got too comfortable at the shelter. When potential adopters come through, she wouldn't jump up to meet them like some other dogs do. She just lay on her bed and watched.
Wareham imagines Reeva was thinking, "'They're not here for me,’" she says. "I think she's become so used to it here."
"She has a big family here," Enscoe adds.
