Congratulations to Rita's Genki, who found his forever home with the Horras family.
Genki recently came to us from Taiwan. We don't know much about his background, but the pictures that Rita sent to us showed a pup in pretty poor shape, and they also showed his transformation into a very handsome guy. He's a great dog, and was charming everyone when he arrived at LAX. He would sit and gaze lovingly at you, then lift his paw to shake - so cute! The Horras family recently lost their 11 yo lab and were looking for a new family member. They are an active family who have a lot to offer a dog, and seemed to be just what Genki was looking for. When we presented Genki as a match for them and they watched is video on the PT blog, they couldn't wait to meet him and had things ready for when he came home - there wasn't much doubt in their mind that Genki would be coming home with them. They went to CP on Sunday morning and it didn't take long for Genki to say, yep - their the ones! He's doing great and they are so happy to have him as part of their family.
Genki thanks Rita & MJ for finding him, getting him healthy and sending him to us. He thanks the Welcome Waggin' for quickly getting him out of his crate, and Gary and Dao for hosting him on his first night in the US. He thanks the CP Walking Team for taking him out every day, and Cecily and Ellen and Danny for doing the home visit. He's grateful to the Placement Team and PA Eva for finding his furver home, and Chevy for making introductions and sending him on his way.
Welcome home Genki!
