Sissy - A Petfinder Happy Tail

Adopted Dog

Adopted from Solano County S.P.C.A., Vacaville, CA.

My daughter and I had been looking for a new dog since December of 2012. We had searched all of our local (and not so local) shelters for months when we finally came across a picture of the sweetest face ever!

We headed to out local shelter to try and meet her and stumbled across the most precious puppy ever. We weren't sure it was the same girl we had seen online and headed in to see her name tag. To our great delight it was her! We promptly began filling out paperwork and found out that there were other people trying to look at her as well. We waited our turn, stayed with her and played for at least an hour. Before we left the amazing staff at the shelter informed us that we could indeed take her home that day! Needless to say, we were and continue to be thrilled! Sissy is now happy at home, in her FOREVER home and we thank God every day that we found each other!! She is the best pet ever! Thank you Petfinder and Solano County SPCA
