Buffy - A Petfinder Happy Tail

Adopted Dog

Adopted from Seven Star Sanctuary .


My husband and I were planning what to do for our first wedding anniversary. We could have gone on a vacation or bought some fancy toys but I had seen an ad on my Facebook about adopting a pet. It was strange seeing an ad like that because we just had to put down the dog with which my husband had grown up. That dog had become mine when my husband's parents had to give the dog away. We consider our pets to be like family so there was a big whole to fill. I began researching pets in my area. We wanted to get a puppy so that we could raise him or her from a young age. We then saw a picture of a dog named Arianna. She made our hearts melt instantly. My husband called KCASE and found out that Arianna was taken to a sanctuary in St. Joseph. We were not giving up that easily so we contacted the sanctuary and set up a meeting with the foster family that was taking care of Arianna. The night before we meet her we went out and bought a bunch of puppy things just in case we got to take her home. We finally got to meet her and fell in love instantly. It was so hard leaving the foster house but they said they'd have to review our application before we could proceed with the adoption. Apparently the foster mom really liked us because we got a call to come back and pick her up. We drove another hour back to pick up our new baby and could not be more happy. We ended up renaming her Buffy an she is the cutest and sweetest little puppy we could have ever asked for. Thank you Petfinder for making this all possible!
