Rescue Dog’s Name
Where Did You Find Your Dog?
I found Lilah at the Southern Oregon Humane Society.
Tell Us About the Moment When You Knew that You Two Were Meant for Each Other.
I went into the shelter after finally deciding it was time to adopt a new family member. I had planned on looking for an older, medium sized dog that would otherwise be overlooked. I stopped at each kennel, greeting every dog many times over. No one seemed to feel like they shared a soul with me. I went into a room where they had a new litter of 13 puppies. Lilah was the smallest, sweetest pup of the bunch. I said hi to each pup, but when I picked her up, the little 3 month old ball of joy melted into my arms, yawning and dozing off. I walked out of the shelter that day with a Pit/Aussie baby.
How Has Your Hero Changed Your Life?
I have suffered from major depression and anxiety for all of my life. Lilah Quinn has been such an important part of my life since I brought her home. She sleeps with me every night, travels with me, and has been a wonderful rock to stabilize my ups and downs. She gave me the confidence to start new medications and is always by my side. She’s a part of my soul, and I wouldn’t trade her for anyone in the world.
