BALTIMORE — Sienna Rose, the sweet dog who was found wandering around the streets of Baltimore, Maryland on a snowy night last winter, is looking for a forever home. It looks like the dog was a victim of dog fighting, as when she was found, part of her face appeared to be bitten off.
Crystal Baldwin, a social worker at a Baltimore school, first saw Sienna through a window in her classroom. The dog was freezing, huddled up next to a telephone pole, and all alone.
It took Baldwin more than 20 minutes to approach the dog, until Sienna felt comfortable, then the dog began begging for some crackers out of Baldwin’s bag. The sweet dog was so excited that she finally had a friend, she then led Baldwin to where she had been staying.
“Her home was around the corner of a cement wall-the last remaining part of a burnt-down home-underneath a pile of snow covered drywall that had been propped up against what remained of the building,” said Baldwin. “Under the drywall she had hidden what she had been living off of-a few empty chip bags and a bird carcass. She was so exited to show me and it made me so sad for her.”
Even though it was late, Baldwin managed to get in contact with a shelter in Baltimore, and it is then Sienna was sent to Second Chance. Since she was found, she has undergone facial reconstruction, and is now being fostered, but she would love to find a forever home.
“From the minute I met her I knew she was something special, she was unique and embodies what love is,” said Baldwin. “I completely trust that she will have no problem finding someone who deserves her as their forever furry family member!”
Sienna is doing so well, she is a very happy dog. She would do best in a home where she is the only pet, due to her horrible past, otherwise she is not picky and just wants to be loved. Sienna has her own Facebook page called Sienna’s Second Chance, and has received over 12,000 likes.
