ORANGE-EYED DOG WAITING SEVEN YEARS TO BE ADOPTED -  ”The rescue centre is now appealing for someone without children or any other pets to come forward and adopt Bagheera.”

An eight-year-old Collie mix named Bagheera has been waiting for a home for seven years. She was recently transported to the Teckles Animal Sanctuary in Gloucester, England. Officials believe certain behavioral problems combined with unusual orange eyes have turned people off from adopting Bagheera. Teckles is now appealing to the public so Bagheera can finally have a home. Read more from the Gloucester Citizen:

No one wanted to take the unfortunate animal - with many put off by her freaky orange eyes.

So Teckels, a rescue centre in Gloucester, helped bring her over to England last year in the hope someone would give her a ‘forever home’

But the combination of difficult behaviour, a lack of training and the black and orange colouring is putting Brits off the unlucky eight-year-old too.

The rescue centre is now appealing for someone without children or any other pets to come forward and adopt Bagheera.

Alice Breaks, a senior kennel technician at Teckels, said: “I love her, she is lovely looking and her eyes are this amazing orange colour.

"I have never come across a dog with eyes like hers before.

"Bagheera is quite nervous and we are struggling to find her a home. She needs to go to a quiet, adult-only home which is ideally in a rural setting.

"She has been in a rescue home since the age of six-months but she is now becoming more friendly.

So proud of my mother for doing her own research after I sent her that meme. A sign she hung in her car window.

Stay woke

Is this true?

Not only is it true, it gets worse. The Susan G Komen For The Cure Foundation has actually successfully sued “competing” charities, because (paraphrasing) their “message or branding was infringing.”
You read that correctly: they took money that people had donated to cure cancer, and hired attorneys with it, to sue ANOTHER group of people trying to find a cure for cancer, who, in turn, had to us their donated money to hire their own legal counsel to defend themselves.



Yeah signal boost because not enough people know about this and seriously FUCK SUSAN G. KOMEN THEY ARE THE ACTUAL WORST
