Arrival Story: Luna was found my Animal Control on June 23, 2009. She was roaming the streets, evidently abandoned by her owner, scrounging for food and covered in fleas. She was otherwise healthy though, and Animal Control performed a stress test on her to see how she was doing, and the person performing the test wrote in the margin, "Great dog!" She was so sweet to anyone helping her.
She was then moved to the Humane Society and stayed there until September 5, the day we adopted her.
Everyone there loved her. Because she is 2 years old, most people wouldn't adopt her--as was true when we were there, most people want puppies.
The shelter told us that she had been "adopted" several times, but the people never showed up to pick her up. It was fate, though. The day we walked in, and when we first met Luna we KNEW within minutes she was our dog.
We first saw her in the park on her walk with a volunteer. She was rolling around in the grass, and loved to be pet. Her calm energy made us fall in love right away...she never barked at the other dogs and she loved people. And those brown eyes make you melt. How COULD we say no?
The shelter worked with us to let us take her home THAT day....she had been there so long, they were so happy to find such eager owners.
We officially adopted Luna 2 months after our wedding day, it gets me a little teary thinking that the day we were getting married, she was sitting in the shelter, just waiting for us to come. :)
