Nina - A Petfinder Happy Tail

Adopted Dog

Adopted from Ogemaw County Humane Society, West Branch, MI.

Last summer, we were at my mother-in-law and father-in-laws house in Ogemaw County, MI. We heard about a rummage sale at the Ogemaw County Animal Shelter so we wanted to check it out. We had been slowly looking for a dog but we didn't really want to adopt one 3 hours away from our house. My daughter finally persuaded me to go and take a look at the animals, so we did. As we were looking, we noticed that Nina was the only dog that was calm and not barking. We asked the staff about her. She was the exact size and breed we wanted. Still unsure, we decided to take her home for a day and see if we thought she was a good fit after getting to know her. We all fell in love with her after those few hours and decided she was the perfect dog for us. We adopted her a few weeks later and brought to our home. Now she is very happy with a place to call home and many acres of field, woods, and yard to run around in.
