This is Dorothy. She is my new best buddy.
When I am sad, she is there to pick me up. When I am happy, she is there to enjoy the moment with me. When I have no motivation, she is there to tell me to go out and walk.
I grew up with dogs and have grown to love their companionship. The past ten years, I haven't had a dog and have felt a void in my life.
Matt and I went to Trolley Square on 1/25/2013. We walked in the animal shelter at Trolley Square, admired the dogs and then started to leave. On our way out we looked at the last cage and saw a sad tiny black dog hiding behind a boxer. She was in the same cage as the boxer. The tiny dog was shaking and looked so sad. I had to pet and comfort her, and when I did, she started to calm down. That's when Matt and I fell in love. She had to come home with us.
These are from the day we adopted her. As you can see, both her and I are smiling.
She loves to work out with Matt and I. Dorothy is really good at yoga, especially downward dog.
She works hard, plays hard and knows when to relax. :)
I've had Dorothy for about a month now and can't imagine my life without her, but Dorothy is not what I expected. I always imagined myself having a large, male dog that I bought from a breeder.
I now think the pound is an amazing place to adopt a new dog or any animal you are thinking of getting. The animals are so appreciative and loving. They may need a little bit of work from the trauma of their past, but it's worth it. Dorothy is perfect.
