When Jim and Cindi Minkle’s older Schipperke, Hooch, passed away, not only they were heartbroken, but so was their dog, Ricky, whom they had adopted to keep Hooch company as his health failed.
“They were best buds instantly,” Cindi says, but of course, that meant he felt the loss as keenly as they did.
The Middleboro, MA, couple had found Ricky at Petfinder member rescue, Journey Animal Rescue in Fryeburg, ME. The adoption had worked so well they turned back to Petfinder to adopt another dog to ease their grief.
“Here I found my precious Foxy,” Cindi says. “She was an eight-month-old Schipperke, and she was perfect. I knew instantly she belonged with us and would help to heal our broken hearts and she is doing just that.” Foxy was listed on Petfinder by PetResQ in Tenafly, NJ.
Sometimes a new furry friend is the best medicine.
