Where Did You Find Your Dog?

Tell Us About the Moment When You Knew that You Two Were Meant for Each Other.
Scooter is a great dog! Our 42 pound handsome hound came to us as a foster but soon declared himself home forever. It took us a bit longer as we were originally focused on fostering him but we too realized that we were a perfect match. We do not know where Scooter spent his first year or what his life was really like. We do know that he did not have use of his back legs which was later determined caused by a birth defect. We also know that a Good Samaritan saw him being abused and alerted authorities. When he was rescued, he was taken to Grady’s Animal Hospital to treat his wounds. While undergoing treatment for his injuries, Grady’s detected and decided to surgically fix his birth defect. A loving foster home spent time with him helping him walk and later run. These were wonderful people with a loving home but not a forever fit for Scooter. While searching for his forever home he was moved into at least two other foster homes. Each foster home added their “heart print” to Scooter and him to them.
How Has Your Hero Changed Your Life?
Fate and the wonderful Sheltered Paws foster network ultimately brought him to us. He is now a loved and important part of our family. As part of our family he has welcomed a number of other foster dogs into his home and has left his energetic heart print on each of them, assuring them that they too will find forever love just as he has!
