I nearly starved to death and was scared of everyone


If no one noticed me, I would have starved to death. I never knew what it was like to be cared for and I wasn’t able to look after myself.

Tina named me ‘Crissy Criss Cross’ because I’m a little cross-eyed! It used to knock my confidence when I had to fend for myself, but it actually makes me so cute and funny!

My name is Crissy and I’m 7 year old girl. Unfortunately, no one cared for me and i lived the beginning of my life on a rubber tree plantation with my brother, Benny. Without medical care, food or love, I became a very neglected dog. Thankfully, a human saw me and alerted Bodhi. When they came, they saw that I had mange and that I was clearly starving to death. The people who lived near us didn’t bother feeding us and there was no food around. I was just so hungry that I ate bits of rubber. Tina tried to rescue me, but I was too scared to go near anyone.

Tina knew that I needed help, fast. She never gave up, and she kept visiting me and feeding me. After a number of visits I began to trust Tina because I knew she cared for us, and she scooped us up at brought us to Bodhi in 2014. And boy, am I glad she did!

No one knows where, or how, our life began, but for a long time we were slowly starving to death. If no one told Bodhi, we would have. Bodhi gave us everything we needed. I’m being treating for Heartworm at the moment, but apart from that, I’m back on track! I’m such a happy little girl. I like to play, go on walks and love to sit in the mud on the fields around me!

I’ve never had a proper home before and I’d love to see what it’s like! Can you adopt me and give me the love I crave? If you can’t adopt me, you can sponsor me. Bodhi will send you updates and I’m sure you’d love to see a face like mine, especially my criss cross eyes!
