Polaris - A Petfinder Happy Tail

Adopted Dog

Adopted from Forever Home Dog Rescue of the Capital District, Albany, NY.


My happy, cheery little ball of rescue hound cuteness, Polaris, first found herself in a shelter in Winchester, KY where records show that she was too sick to spay and/or prepare for adoption. She was given antibiotics and another chance at life and sent on up to New York where I found her at Forever Home. She snuggled up to me immediately when I visited her in foster care. I picked her up to keep the next day! She was the calm presence, yes even as a puppy, that I needed. I named her Polaris after the North Star, we both needed a partner to keep us on the right track when we came together. Now at nearly two years old she is thriving and, everyone agrees, sweet and beautiful.
