Hamlet - A Petfinder Happy Tail

Adopted Dog

Adopted from Terrebonne Parish Animal Shelter, Houma, LA.

We had just lost our dog, and weren't sure if we were ready to get another one so soon. I browsed Petfinder a few times, to get an idea of what shelters were in the area, and I saw "Allen" at Terrebone Parish Shelter. He is a red Dachshund, and is about 2 years old. He looked so sad in the photo and I knew that they were, unfortunately, an [open-admission] shelter. I decided right there, without having ever met him, that he needed to be ours. Just a few days later Allen, now known as Hamlet came home to live with us. It really was love at first sight and he has become a very spoiled lap dog. Thank you Petfinder, for saving lives daily. We love our new pup, and we would never have known about him if he hadn't been listed on here.
