Arrival Story:
I saw Krystal's picture on an e-mail list of dogs that was going to be euthanized at a high kill shelter in north Texas. Since I'm a volunteer and foster for the Richardson Humane Society, I asked our Intake Coordinator if we could rescue her! We got her out of the shelter 2 days before she would have been put to sleep. She was filthy, skinny, matted, had ticks, was covered in fleas, and peeeeuuuwww did she stink! But we immediately found out that she was extremely sweet and loving. I had her several weeks before she could go to adoptions - she needed to be spayed and also had to get over a bacterial skin infection. Well, it didn't take too long for me to realize this little angel was home already. I couldn't imagine my life without her, so I adopted her myself. I'm so glad to have her!! She's a perfect addition to the family!

Krystal is the cutest and sweetest dog there ever was. She has such a funny personality and keeps me laughing! She likes to talk to me in the cutest little howls. If she wants to be petted she nudges my leg or my hand to get my attention, or she will lightly tap my leg with her paw. She loves all people - every time she sees a person she gets very happy and starts wagging her stub tail and wants to go say hi to them. She's finished Basic Obedience and Intermediate Obedience and passed the CGC. She is also a registered Therapy Dog. She loves to go visit people in the nursings homes, and she puts a smile on everybody's face!
