Arrival Story: Leila has quite a memorable story. I remember visiting the local animal Shelter in the area quite often after my Sociology class was done. I remember seeing her inside the area where they had all the puppies. Her info. claimed she was picked up on the street with her other siblings although none of them quite resembled her. Her papers claimed she was a German Sheperd mix, but she sure didnt look like one. She was available to be adopted till the following week. I couldnt wait and I remember praying I would be the one to adopt her. I remember taking the day off of school just to be there early in the morning to adopt her. But when the shelter opened, 30 other familys where already there to beat me to it! so they decided there would just be an auction and who ever claimes her for the highest wins! Then someone mentioned she had an umbilical heria and that she would require an operation in order for the adoption. After that...no one wanted her. I can remember looking at those innocent eyes and feeling so sorry for her all locked up in the cage suddenly no one in the world seemed to care..and thats when i knew i had to be the one to own her, no matter the cost of the operation.
Bio: Umbilical Hernia operations cost a fortune and I remember asking around for the price of the operation . i was lucky enough a kind lady offered to make a phone call to a local vet. and since she was a shelter dog they kept the price conviently low and took more than 75% off. Her operation and adoption fee only cost me around $175. It was certainly worth the money when you know you are doing it for something GOOD! Regardless if the operation costs more than that.. I STILL would have paid anything...because you seriously cant put a price on LIFE...Ive had her since the day after her operation and shes beeen such a delight to our family and shes definitely our family Guard dog when no one is home! =)
