I sit here watching the children

Who pass by without a glance

They say that I am far too small


And will not grow up to be much

I have been at the shelter for a long time now

Three years to be exact and they're ready

Getting ready to finally put me to sleep


I was given four more days

To see if anyone would want me

If only I knew what was happening

Maybe I am a bad dog because I am unwanted

Or maybe it is because I am a small breed


A tired woman has come in looking for a dog for her boy

Small man is three years old, she finds no dog small enough

After looking in all cages, they bring me before her shaking

She says I am perfect and they will take me now, AS IS

Not being chosen at first, it has made me appreciate love

Unconditional love that I now feel for my new friend
