From Rachel of Canton, OH

I knew I wanted to adopt from a rescue. I already had two dogs of my own. So I searched the Internet for rescues and came across My Young and Old Fur Babies and there I saw this cute Shih Tzu. I called Vicki up and made an appointment to come see him. She told me he's a little shy at first.

I will never forget that day. I rang her door bell and she came out with him and he was cuter in person. She put him down and he ran to me and let me pick him up and give him a big hug. I told her OK, he's mine.

While we were inside filling out paper work, I asked her if she would let someone adopt two pups. She looked at me with a puzzled look and said, yes, if they really knew they could handle it and wanted to. She asked me why ,and I told her I couldn't walk away knowing that I could adopt two instead of one. She asked if I was sure, and I said I'd never been so sure. She asked which other one I was interested in. I didn't know.

She left and came back with four furry ones in her hands. She put them all down and it was so fun watching them all run around playing. It was hard to pick. They where all so cute and sweet. But there was this one white furry one who kept on coming to see me in between playing, and each time he did, he would stay longer until he didn't care about playing at all. He just sat in front of me letting me love him. Vicki had a big grin on her face and said, I guess you don't have to pick because he picked you.

I brought two home for Christmas in 2011 and I couldn't be any happier. I always say the more dogs you have the bigger your heart gets. With that being said Vicki Groves must have the BIGGEST heart because she saves so many of these wonderful pups and having several of her own.
