The story of Laura Smith and a pooch named Takia is a living proof that good things come to those who wait. It took Laura a year before finally adopting Takia for good. For Laura, though, the long wait is worth it because she can finally be sure that she is ready to take good care of Takia.
According to Laura, she first met the pooch in a devastating state. Laura recalled that the pooch got chained to a tree in the dog’s owner’s backyard. As a dog lover, Laura immediately walked towards the direction of the pooch to check on her. Laura eventually greeted her new fur friend.
As she was approaching Takia, Laura does not know how the pooch would react. But to her surprise, the dog began wagging her tail when the pooch saw Laura. From there, Laura knew that the dog is in bad condition, and she had to take action. Since she had no idea about the dog’s owners, what Laura can only do is to visit the pooch whenever she can. Laura did this multiple times a week, and, in her visits, Laura would feed Takia.
Laura tried to inform Takia’s owners about the dog’s condition, but the latter seems oblivious about it. This was when Laura thought of taking the matter to a local animal control center. It was the center who talked with Takia’s owners and warned him of the dog’s condition.
However, Takia’s owner seems not to care at all. Animal control then takes the dog’s custody because the pooch is in great trouble. During that time, Laura was eager to adopt Takia for good. Laura had to wait for a while before the adoption gets a green light. When the animal control was sure that the pooch would be safe in Laura’s custody, the adoption became successful.
