Joey - A Petfinder Happy Tail

Adopted Dog

Adopted from One Step Closer to Home, Lexington, TN.

My husband and I have always had pets our last was a female Maltese named Angel.She passed away after being our girl for 15yrs.It was unbearable for us everyday.I started just looking on petfinder not really intending to get another dog.But the face of this little male Maltese I could not get out of my mind.Every few days I would look and see if he was still there.My husband and I fell in love him right there on the page.So I contacted where he was and started the adoption. We were not looking for him to take Angel's place but wanted him to be in her space. Its going on a year now since we got him and we don't know what we would do without our little guy. It took awhile for him to adjust but he is at his forever home now. He stopped our hearts from hurting.he is the BEST little boy.Everyday we are thankful to have him in our lives.We saved him and he saved us.
