Upon buying my first cottage style home in Minneapolis, I had ‘the bug’ to find the perfect new puppy for my new life! My significant other, Jason, and I were bound and determined to find a fun-loving, medium-large breed pup about 1 year old. All we knew was that we were definitely going to adopt!
We had applied to meet quite a few other pups in the area. When we finally received communication from the local shelters, we were saddened to find that our new puppies were already adopted or that they were no longer for adoption. Over and over again we would say, “Well, that dog was just not meant for us!”
Until… one day we received a call from C.A.R.E.S. in Wyoming, MN saying that they had two lab mix puppies, both 7months old and ready for new homes. We immediately scheduled a time to go up and meet the two puppies.
Buried in the mass of dogs that greeted us at the door, was this skinny, black puppy, with the most beautiful caramel eyes! She took one look at Jason and I and it was over for all three of us! She was the one we were waiting for… or were we the ones she was waiting for?
We had no idea what we were getting ourselves into…
Here begins the story of a young puppy and her humans and her journey to health!
