Andy - A Petfinder Happy Tail

Adopted Dog

Adopted from MARS Rescue, Grapevine, TX.

Michael from MARS contacted me in regards to a Dogo that was going to be put to death and needed to be rescued ASAP!! So, knocking on deaths door, I managed to pick up "Gordo/Andy" from the local Fort Worth Animal Shelter without a minute to spare.

He was extremely underweight, sick and near death that I didn't know if I was going to be able to bring him back to health. I took him straight to the vet and received tons of medication along with being told "only time will tell."

From there, he managed his way into my heart and is an extremely affectionate dog and so loving. I could not begin to thank Michael at MARS for bringing Andy into my home.

As a matter of fact because of his spirit, kindness and attitude, I am currently working with Andy to be a Therapy Dog so he can spread joy to others has he's done for me.

Thank the world for Michael with MARS and placing "Gordo/Andy" with me. I could have never imagined what fulfillment I would not have without my dog.
