Jennifer contacted Gracie's Bark to Spotlight her beautiful dog Shadow. We are very excited to share their story.
"This is Shadow. My husband put our two dogs out in our fenced in yard one morning, came back to check on them and there was a third dog. When my husband went out to see if this new dog had a collar on and to try to entice him into the house with a treat, he quickly squeezed through a small gap in the fence and ran off. We followed him to a house a couple of streets over from ours and rang the bell. When it was apparent no one was home, we called NB animal control as he was not wearing a collar and, clearly, not secure in the yard. We left our name and number with the officer and went to work. Within an hour, the animal control officer called to say that she had been to the house before to talk to the owner about securing the dog and providing shelter if he was going to be outside all day. This day, the owner decided to surrender him and the animal control officer wanted us to know that and that he was on his way to Forever Paws animal shelter in Fall River. Well, it didn't take long for us to decide to try to adopt the dog that found us. We welcomed him into our family in early December and can not imagine our lives without him. He is a sweet little boy and, in addition to his human family, has two canine sisters, Raven (15) and Lily (6)." ~Jennifer
