Arrival Story:
I had dreamt about getting a dog since I was very young and finally when I turned nine we went to a kennel and brought a cairn terrier home and named her Toto. She was a definite terrier with an attitude and a true personality. She had her grumpy days in the 11 years she was with our family, but she was a wise and loving dog. I miss her much. Toto died suddenly in September of 2004. So a few months later I went home from college to be with my family, when i went home I felt like it was my duty to adobt a dog for my grieving parents. We live in NYC and there are many of shelters, pounds, and adoption programs in the city but visiting them all was hard and painful. Finally after a week of seeing suffering dogs and crying in nearly all the shelters I went to, little Tootsie came in to our lives. We adopted her from the New York Center for Care and Control (a kill shelter) on 110th street in Manhattan. She is a beautiful dog, friendly as anything, but has a strange barking habit that usually only occurs when my dad is around. Either way she was adopted in to a great and loving family, and although she can not take the place of our beloved Toto, she sure brings us smiles every day.
