Rita's Shadow adopted!

Congratulations to Rita's Shadow, who found his forever home with the Hildens.

Shadow arrived earlier this year from Taiwan. When he was found by Rita and MJ, he was emaciated and was suffering from a large ear hematoma, skin problems and digestive problems. They helped him to get healthy and he made his trip to us at the end of March. He went to stay with foster mom, Janet, who adopted Euphoria, a while back, and she helped him with his chronic ear infections and gave him lots of love while he waited for his forever home.

Shadow had three opportunities which all fell through due to the families deciding they weren't ready for another dog. It was fate that he would meet the Hildens who'd recently lost their elderly Shepherd mix, and were missing having pups around the home. They were so excited to hear about Shadow and made arrangements as soon as possible to pick him up (no doubt in their minds - he was theirs before they even met him!) And of course no one was disappointed - Shadow acquired a new name and a new home. He's settling in great and the Hildens absolutely adore him. His new name is Spencer.

Shadow would like to thank Rita and MJ for all they did to get him healthy and to the US. He thanks the Welcome Waggin' for meeting him at LAX, and the CP Dog Walkers who got him out during his stay there. He's so grateful to his foster mom Janet for providing a wonderful temporary home. He thanks Sanya for doing the home visit for his new family and the placement team and PA Eva for making a wonderful match.
