Arrival Story:
Gypsy came to us on Jan. 13, 2009 after being basically neglected and abandoned at less than a year old. The neighbor who had been watching out for her decided that this had gone on too long and it was time to get her away. A friend of hers was in a training class with my colleague, saw her pass by with her Keeshond, and asked if she could help. We had lost our beloved English shepherd in August, and were looking for a new family member. My coworker told her she knew the perfect home for Gypsy, and the rest, as they say, is history. She has settled in wonderfully and we adore her. I don't understand how anyone could give her up, but their loss is our gain.

Gypsy, so called because she was one before she came to us, she is officially known as "The Gypsy in Me" after a Cole Porter song. She is now deaf due to ear surgery as a result of severe, long standing ear infections acquired while she was on the sreet. However, she is no longer in chronic pain, and being very bright knows a number of hand signals. She gets along fabulously with her companion Tommy, who is almost a sort of hearing dog for her. They play and roughhouse like they had always been together but sometimes have a rivalry over their orthopedic beds! We are so glad to have her as part of our family.
