My dog Luna, was a very lucky puppy. She was born on the streets of Kentucky and someone from the NJ Puppy Rescue saw her and her siblings roaming the streets alone, so they had them shipped over to New Jersey. Meanwhile, I had been searching for almost 4 years to try and find the right dog. My mom had always told me " When we get a house" because we did not have enough room in our apartment for 2 dogs, 2 ferrets, and 2 guinea pigs. I finally found a puppy who fit my very active lifestyle and who really needed my help. My family cares so much for our animals, I was not surprised that she was willing to drive to New Jersey, a four hour drive, to get Luna, who was then known as "Fancy". We filled out a nine page form that took 2 hours, and the very next day, Luna's foster parents called and asked " So, when are you coming to get her?". We were shocked! It was so fast, and the woman was so exited about us getting her! And three days later, we found ourselves in our car with my mom, her friend Jimmy, our present dog Bozz, and me on our way to get my new puppy. After four hours of driving, I saw Luna in "dog" for the first time. As soon as I saw her little wiggly tail and her perky little attitude, I knew she was the one. Bozz was not at all happy. She was small enough to fit in a large box, but she always got car sick. For the last three hours, I held her in my lap while she was sleeping, and at one point she was actually snoring! You would never believe how much noise a 9 week old puppy could make! At last we finally made it home and Luna got all settled into her new home. She has now been living with us for almost 3 years and we actually found out what breed(s) she is! Turns out, she is 1/4 Cadaluna Hound and 3/4 Great Pryanese! At first they said she was a Huskey and Blood Hound, but she looked far from that. We are looking forward to many more years together and we hope that every animal on Petfinder finds a home like Luna did. Thanks NJ Puppy Rescue!
