Johnny Love - posted 06/05/2013

From Kelli of Richmond, VA

I was lucky enough to find Johnny Love on Petfinder. There wasn't a picture but I knew that the shelter, Richmond Animal Care and Control, was down the road so I went to meet him. I didn't really want a black dog, a young dog or any pit mix (because I thought about the stigma people have with them, even though I love them). Of course when I was introduced to dogs who met my "criteria" I thought I wanted. None of them interested me...I asked about "Johnny Love". Although, he's the "things" I didn't think I wanted, I fell in love with him. June 15th is his one year adoption anniversary and I couldn't be happier. He gets along with all animals and people, behaves anywhere we go and is the coolest dog all around. When I met Johnny he had health issues and I wasn't sure if I was ready for that...I will say that I couldn't have made a better decision and I wouldn't want to change anything about him. He's the dog I didn't think I wanted and now couldn't imagine not having. Find a shelter you like, go check out their dogs and you may be surprised at who you connect with.
