|Jake, your story is adorable! I've read some of your past posts, and I'm really glad you've built the bond you have with him. It's heart-warming.
I knew Leia was ours as soon as we met her. We'd been looking for months and nothing was working or clicking, the spark wasn't there, so I was getting pretty discouraged. Then, Leia popped up on my favorite rescue site as a private rehome. She just looked so goofy and sweet, we had to go see her.
We met her the next weekend at the owner's home (wonderful people, we still keep in touch about her). They used to be fosters for the rescue, so they knew how to evaluate dogs and knew Leia's personality inside and out, which was exactly the kind of certainty we were looking for. In fact, the only reason they were sending her on was because they knew she needed a quiet home as a single dog for a while, to work on her issues. They told us before we met her that she was shy and would likely take a minute to warm up to us, but as soon as she saw me she walked right up and put her head in my lap. The owners were shocked, hahaha. She was mine from then on. It's not easy dealing with her fear of, well, everything, but her wonderful sweetness and adorability (now a word) makes up for it. She's a perfect apartment dog, couldn't be better, and an even more perfect companion
