Rescue Dog's Name
Where Did You Find Your Dog?
I first saw Martin's picture on the shelter's website and couldn't wait to meet him. We went the very next day to meet him and I fell in love instantly. He had been living in the shelter for 5 months with no offers for adoption. I couldn't believe that someone hadnt adopted him yet... He was perfect! And he was ours.
Tell Us About the Moment When You Knew that You Two Were Meant for Each Other.
The ability to trust humans after being abandoned and alone is one reason why I admire Martin (and others like him) so much. When we first brought Martin home from the shelter, he was so scared that he had multiple accidents in the house. Over the next few months, he began to trust us and transformed from a scared, unsure stray dog left abandoned in a shelter to a confident, loving part of our family that slobbers on the floor when you say the word "treat" and hogs the covers in bed. He's made road trips to Louisiana and moved across the country with us all within the last year.
How Has Your Hero Changed Your Life?
This sweet little lab/pit mix has taught me that second chances are a gift, and not giving second chances could mean that we may be missing out on something amazing. My rescue dog has taught me to always maintain hope and a positive outlook, even in the most difficult situations.
