How is your adopted pet doing? Our family laid our 16 year old fur baby to rest back in September. Having felt like we lost a piece of our soul, I knew the only thing that would help us heal was to honor our girl by giving a new dog a life of love and happiness. During our search, there were of course many dogs that caught our eye as we are huge dog lovers, but something was preventing us from making the move. We had halted our search for a little bit, until one day I decided to just “take a browse” on petfinder. And there she was, our Stevie Nicks. After seeing her picture and reading her story, I didn’t stop thinking about her for the entire night. Something in my gut was telling me that she was the one. By the next morning we were putting in an application, and the rest is history.

We traveled from New York to Connecticut to pick her up, and it was truly love at first sight. It took her a few days to get settled into her new home, but now it already feels like she has been a part of our lives forever. She is so full of personality, and is one of the most affectionate dogs I have ever come across. Her new morning routine is hopping up into our kids bed to give them their wake up kisses, and when they start to stir she immediately rolls over to her back so they can rub her belly. She’s happy to just be a part of whatever we are doing, and is so loyal and sweet. She is helping us heal from the grief of losing our sweet girl, while also making her own imprint on our lives and heart that makes us excited to give her a life full of adventure and unconditional love. We couldn’t be happier with our choice to rescue our sweet girl, and AARF was so amazing to work with. We have kept in touch with Stevie’s foster, and it is so abundantly clear how well cared for and loved she was.
