|Riley, you should have your pawrents submit your ‘happy tail’ to Petfinder.com ( Happy Tail ). My mom submitted mine on my two year annifursary and they posted it on the same day, which made my mom smile. Here’s my story:
I was living in New Orleans when Hurricane Katrina hit. My mom guesses my original pawrents were in the process of leaving after the hurricane hit and realized they couldn't take me with them because they drove up to an animal rescue vehicle and handed me off. The gentleman who took me brought me back to Atlanta with several other dogs. I had a large fatty tumor (lipoma) on my side, so he took me to the vet -- had the tumor removed, got my shots and anything else I needed.
After my surgery and recovery, I went to live with a wonderful foster family here in Georgia. The owner of Pets To Be, Inc., agreed to place me with their rescue group and add me to their Web site so I could find a forever home. I was adopted, but unfortunately, it didn't work out and I was returned to my foster family.
I was with my foster family again for a while until my mom saw my photo and bio on Petfinder.com. Since I was dealing with some shy/fear issues, my foster family, the rescue group, and the sister of the man who brought me to Georgia wanted to be VERY sure my next adoption would be forever. So, they required my mom visit with me a few times. It usually took some time for me to warm up to people, but my mom and I hit it off right away. We even had some trial time together in her home. My mom says she knew even before the trial that the adoption was going to happen, but because of my history, they had to be sure. Well, that was two years ago and my mom says it has been a wonderful and blessed two years --- I have to agree with her!
