"She looked like she hadn't eaten in a few days, so I brought her food and water," Proctor told The Dodo.
A trip to the vet revealed that the dog wasn't microchipped. Proctor said she worked her way around town, trying to see if anyone knew if this dog had a family. She even posted an ad on a local lost-and-found pets page on Facebook, but no one stepped forward to claim Kinta.
Proctor learned that if Kinta had remained in animal control's care, she only had a certain number of days to be adopted before she would have been euthanized.
"I'm not really a gambling girl," Proctor said. "We had high hopes of returning her to her owner, but after two months we were certain that she was probably a reject from a puppy mill since she was not yet spayed and had a genetic malformation - she has no nipples."
That was how Kinta became officially adopted into the family.
