Arrival Story: I don't know what happened with the original owners, but something happened to land T'Pol [formerly 'Luna'] at the local AC center. A rescue group then took her in to give her a second chance.
The first family that showed interest in her adopted her and had her for a couple months until moving. When they moved, they released 'Luna' into the "wild" to fend for herself. Animal control found her and returned her to the rescue group that had taken her in. When the rescue group contacted the previous owners, they informed the rescue that they did not want her back and that they had indeed released her.
This was the first time I saw her sitting in front of PetsMart. I fell in love with her and decided I would come back after work to take her on a walk. When I returned she was gone.
The second family that adopted her had her for a total of 6 days. After 6 days of trying to adjust to a new home, 'Luna' was brought back to the rescue group because "she played too rough with the Yorkie."
The third family had been put on a waiting list for her should something not work out with the second family. She lived with them for about two weeks until the new owners decided that she was too much work and way to hyper. They had renamed her 'Spastic' and sent her back to the rescue.
My SO and I snatched her up that evening.
Bio: T'Pol is a big ol' love bug that requires tons and tons of exercise. She is thinking about joining some weight training classes, but is nervous because she doesn't know any other dogs that do it. Her days consist of pestering the cat, going on trail rides and hikes, and lounging around watching some animal planet.
