From Sandy (Dora's rep)...
I am happy to announce that one of our newest arrivals from Taiwan, Rita's Dora has found her forever home with Bill, David and Jesse of Yorba Linda.
Dora was found in a shelter in Taiwan, where it was discovered she had Heartworms and Ehrlichia, along with ears that were thickened with scar tissue from chronic ear infections. Despite all this, Dora has a very spunky spirit and came through her treatment very well, then made the trip to SoCal to start a new life. Dora stayed at my house for her first week and had a great time getting into stuff (under Ori's influence) and playing with my other pups. She moved to Debi & Mark's house and enjoyed her time there with their Swissy, Forest. Debi e-mailed me the first day to tell me she was laughing watching Dora drag a comforter down the hallway. And after her antics, she would sit in front of you and gaze at you with big, brown eyes to say "how can you get mad at me - I'm sooooo cute!" Bill and David drove out to meet Dora on Saturday and fell in love, and she is settling in nicely.
Dora is forever grateful to Rita & MJ for getting her healthy and then out to California, to Ira and his Taiwan Welcome Waggin' team who greeted her on arrival and to foster parents Debi & Mark who gave her loving home until she found her permanent one. She also thanks Sandra D for scouting out this terrific new family for Dora, and Barbara D for coordinating her transfer with Rita & MJ.
Below is a picture of Dora with her new brother (with her "aren't I cute look").
