Where Did You Find Your Dog?

I was searching everywhere for a puppy, a new best friend. I noticed on a yard sale Facebook page that a lady posted a lot of ads for different breeds of dog. I immediately thought the worst. I made an appointment to meet with her about some chihuahua puppies. I drove about 30 minutes to an old trailer a town away. It was secluded and junky. I walked to the porch and the smell was intense. When she answered probably 100 dogs of all shapes and sizes barked. There were puppies whining and crawling everywhere scared! I was in shock. She took me to a room I could barely walk in with fear I might step on a tail or tiny foot. I see the puppies in a corner under a purple laundry hamper. She said she did that while they were nursing. They weren’t eating at all. I’m assuming she thought these were more valuable and didn’t want them hurt. I almost walked out but then I saw my little ball of fur. He was so sweet. I picked him up. He smelled horrible. He looked in my eyes and licked my chin. I held him close and he nussled my neck. I knew then he was mine. I paid her 300 dollars and left that horrendous place. As soon as Riley and I were safe in the car I called 911. I got help between the local police and the shelters around the area to shut her down. She was arrested on cruelty charges later that week.

Tell Us About the Moment When You Knew that You Two Were Meant for Each Other.

I knew the moment he nussled my neck and kissed me. I had to get at least one baby out of there. We bonded more through out the day and we are inseparable now.

How Has Your Hero Changed Your Life?

He has helped me so much. I suffer from depression and anxiety. He keeps me calm and safe. I don’t know where I would be without him.
