Arrival Story: Oh Boy!! I looked for about 2 years- after my female shepherd died. Out of hundreds of dogs at the rescues (emailed daily)-SHE CAUGHT MY EYE!! Her saucer eyes, wrinkly face and sweet demeanor, got me. She was not easy to adopt!! She went from foster home to shelter, to foster home, to shelter kill list! I chased her all over...I finally nailed her down an hour before (YOU KNOW WHAT!!) WHEW!!! Me and Barbara from PAWS rescue, met at the humane society- she signed her out, and I took her from there. She wouldn't even take my money because I saved little Cynder--she was 10 months old! After tedious training and patience....I have a GREAT dog! Thank god I was persistent!!!
