Arrival Story: We had been looking for a dog for about 3 months but hadnt found the right one yet. One day when I was volunteering at the local shelter a dog was surrendered. Well Shandi's old owners were away for a few months and someone was house sitting for them and looking after Shandi and her mum. While the people house sitting were gone one day I got the the neighbours chickens and killed them all. The owners found out and said to put me and my mum down. My mum didnt even do anything wrong so the lady house sitting begged the owners to let her find a new home for us. She found a home for Shandi's mum but not for Shandi. She emailed the local shelter and they said that they would take me. I was at the shelter when she came in and she fell in love straight away. She was a beautiful, sweet, kind natured dog. 5 hours later I adopted her and we brought her home.
Bio: Shandi very sweet natured and goofy dog. She is still acts like a puppy. She loves everyone she meets and always has lots of kisses to give out. Although Shandi does have a naughty side. She loves to chew things and dig big holes. She also like to chase birds. Shandi is one of the sweetest dogs I have ever met. She just love to cuddle up with me.
It's been 2 years since mum adopted me from the shelter. Alot has happened in that time but she couldnt be more happier to have me in her life. I was taken to the shelter because I killed the neighbours chickens. My previous owners were going to have me and my mum put down. The house sitter convinced the owners to let her find us a home. Well she found a home for my mum who was a golden lab but not for me so off to the shelter I went. Mum was standing near the front fence when I was taken out of the car and she knew at that moment I was the dog for her. Plus she's a sucker for any dog with a ridge.
I was taken through to the kennels drooling and shaking I was so scared. There were so mnay dogs just barking and barking, I'd never been to a place like this before. About an hour later mum came into my kennel to clean it and I was like her shadow. I followed her around and never left her side. By the end of the day, 5 hours after I had come in I had found my forever home.
The very first thing I did when mum brought me home was run around the yard doing zoomies like a crazy girl I was just so happy to be out of that place and have a nice big backyard of my own.
During the past two years I've almost gone to the rainbow bridge countless times and I've destroyed alot of things. I was only 18 months when mum brought me home and now this year I'll be turning 4. I've passed my puppy stage and now I enjoy lazing around next to the couch and just enjoying life. I also have a little brother that keeps me company and I have a ball playing with him. I say I hit that jackpot when mum adopted me. Or shall I say when I chose my human.
