Chere - A Petfinder Happy Tail

Adopted Dog

Adopted from St. Tammany Parish Department of Animal Services, Lacombe, LA.

I have been ill, having several brain surgeries, I was looking for a small dog to pet hold and love to help ease my anxiety and perhaps my pain. I found this small Yorkie located in the shelter right near my home. I went to meet her. They told me she was a special adoption and required a home visit prior to adoption. They had found her in deplorable dirty condition with long matted fur. I filled out the paper work right after meeting her. I knew she was meant to be my baby. My husband and I have now had her nearly two years, and she is the princess she was always meant to be. She sleeps with us, gets multiple walks a day, has at times been spoon fed because it's what she wanted. She get treated like a true princess because she deserves that and so much more.
