Savannah - A Petfinder Happy Tail

Adopted Dog

Adopted from PAWS (Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society), Philadelphia, PA.

My dog passed away in 2010, and I had no idea when I'd be ready again to adopt. Ten days later I received an email with nothing but a Petfinder link -- Savannah's Petfinder link. To this day I have no idea who sent her to me but I opened the link and fell in love. I adopted her three days later. She has changed my life, changed minds of everyone I know, is a Certified Good Citizen, a therapy dog, an emotional-assist dog and now a big sister to two more Pitties [Pit Bulls] and tons of foster Pitties. She is the light of my life.
