Leesi - A Petfinder Happy Tail

Adopted Dog

Adopted from Cache Creek Animal Rescue North, Shorewood, IL.

I was out looking for a dog for my boyfriend, saw this girl in the corner with nobody paying attention to her. I went over and said Hi, then took her out to play. She climbed into my lap and I fell in love! I didn't take her home that night because I had an old sick dog at home. After many tears I decided to get her and keep her away from the old boy. Because it was the holidays I had to wait 2 weeks to get her, ad sadly 3 days before picking her up, I had to say goodbye to good ol' Mack. Having this girl around helped me deal with the grief of loosing my boy. She will never replace him but warms my heart every day. She is my first rescue dog and the most loyal loving dog I have had. I will ALWAYS adopt from here on out! Too many lives to be saved.
