Chief - A Petfinder Happy Tail

Adopted Dog

Adopted from Diamonds in a Ruff Rescue, Pompton Lakes, NJ.

We lost our last rescue to cancer a month before and started looking for a new family member (our girl KC was lonely, too) I attended an adoption event at Mikes Feed Farm in Riverdale, NJ. I originally went to see a certain dog but she was with a family when I got there. None of the other dogs seemed right for us. I was about to leave when I noticed the only dog that was in a crate. I asked about him, took him out to meet him, and just knew. He became ours the day before my birthday!
