Foxy - A Petfinder Happy Tail

Adopted Dog

Adopted from Pet ResQ Inc., Tenafly, NJ.

I would like to start by thanking the founders of Petfinder and all the people that run this wonderful organization!

I found both our babies here on Petfinder. We adopted Ricky last September from Journey Animal Rescue in Stowe Maine. He was going to be a friend for our older Schipperke that was in failing health. Well they were best buds instantly. In March we lost our beloved Hooch and we & Ricky were all heart broken. So back to Pet-finder I went. Here I found our precious Foxy. She was an 8 month old Schipperke and she was perfect. I knew instantly she belonged with us and would help to heal our broken hearts and she is doing just that. She was rescued by Pet ResQ in NJ and I will always be grateful to Robyn Jennifer and Hedy for helping our little girl and helping us to adopt her. Ricky now has a girlfriend to play and run around with and he is so happy as are we.

So thank you Pet-finder, Journey (Monique & Pat for our little Ricky) Animal Rescue & PetResQ (Robyn,Jen, Hedy) for all you do for all the wonderful pets that need special angels till they find their furever homes! Also thank you to Nancy of Paws NE for conducting the home visit since PetResQ is in NJ and was unable to visit our home.

Ricky is the handsome little guy on the left in the photo he is a Schipperke mix & Foxy is the Foxy gal on the right she is all Schipperke and you can see the Schipp mischief in her eyes!

Thank you

Jim, Cindi, Ricky & Foxy
