Maggie's Thomas adopted!

Maggie's Thomas was adopted today by former adopters, Alan and Mike, of Los Angeles, taking this sweet boy from a true rags to riches home. A survivor of the horrific typhoon, Morack, which hit Taiwan, Thomas was found by Maggie Chen of ARTT lying outside a city business alleyway beside a garbage collection area on the wet ground. Arriving early October to LAX, Thomas found a sanctuary in foster, Terry J., where he learned some of the basics and more importantly he communicated to us what he needed in a new family here in Southern California.

Alan and Mike turned out to be the humans destined for Thomas. As a bonus, Alan and Mike's neighbor, Jackie, and her female German Shepherd, Cassie, would be spending a lot of time with Thomas so they came to the adoption meeting to make sure the dogs liked each other. Sure enough, Cassie and Thomas are also destined to become the best of friends. Thomas happily greeted his new families with tail wags and nestling his head in their laps.

It was so evident how much Alan, Mike and Jackie adored their dogs and were deeply saddened by the loss of their Golden Retriever, Buddy (adopted from GRCGLARescue in 2003). With a lovely home in the Hollywood Hills, Thomas will be treated to a life of canine indulgence, enjoying the very best with folks who have the biggest of hearts!

Thank you Maggie of ARTT, the Welcome Waggin Crew who greeted Thomas upon arrival to the U.S., Barbara D. for her leadership in guiding these dogs to a new life, Terry J. for fostering Thomas and helping him find his mojo, and to Laura M. for scouting out these truly wonderful, committed folks during her homevisit.

Congratulations are one special boy!
