Rita's HiHi adopted!

Rita’s Hi Hi said 'bye-bye' to the Rescue and went home with the Albee family today. They have had many dogs in the past and have raised puppies for the Guide Dogs of the Desert so have oodles of experience with dog training. Hi Hi is a lovely, sweet 3 year old who is very active and will benefit from the experienced training the Albees will provide her. In fact, before they left, they were already getting her to walk nicer on the leash, and to sit. Hi Hi was more than ready to start her new adventure with the Albees and leaped into their SUV for the ride home. In a few weeks, they are planning on a motor-home adventure to New Mexico where Hi Hi will be a part of the family fun.

Hi Hi thanks Rita and MJ for saving her in Taiwan and helping her to get safely to the U.S. to look for new opportunities. She also thanks the Welcome Waggin' for making her first moments in the US happy; David P. and his family for providing a loving foster home for a while, and the West Wind dog walking team – especially Scott M. and Julie W., for seeing to it she got walked and cuddled – another activity she loves. Finally, she thanks Barbara D. for making the match, as well as finding her this great new home and Pat J. for facilitating the adoption meeting.
