Orchid Has Scars All Over Her Face and Legs

By Jarissa Aquinde, Positively Woof Rescue and Adoption Story EditorHi there, my name is Orchid! I’m a 3 year old Staffy mix and I live in Adelaide, South Australia with my furever family. My furever family adopted me from the RSPCA. I had a rough start to life and I ended up at the RSPCA, as my previous owners didn’t look after me. They left me with no food and no water, so I was seized from their possession. I have some scars on my face and legs. My family thinks that I might have gotten into fights with my fellow dog companions on the rare occasions we were fed, but who knows. If only I could speak hooman, hey!I spent quite some time at the RSPCA as I was in heat when I arrived, so I had to wait three weeks until I could be spayed. I also had a tooth removed and two fatty lumps taken out of my back!Mum and dad had been coming into the RSPCA looking for the right dog for their family. On their second visit, I had been told I was ready to adopt, so I was put on show to the public. My furever parents took one look at me and fell in love (who wouldn’t?!). I had some anxiety and was a little timid, but mum and dad knew that with a little bit of love they could help me deal with my issues. So, they put me on hold, and came to visit me almost everyday until the vet finally said I was allowed to come home.

I’ve been in my furever home for nearly three months now, and I have already made so much progress! My mood has improved dramatically, my anxiety is basically a thing of the past, my coat is nice and shiny, I’ve gained some weight and my true personality is starting to shine. My favorite thing in the world is FOOD! I will eat anything and everything, my favorite snacks are pigs ears, raw bones and lettuce. Other than eating, I love cuddles with mum and dad, lazing in the sunshine and most of all, going to the beach!
