Hillary

Well I guess it's safe to say Hillary decided to make it official and adopt us. When we went to the animal shelter to meet her Hillary came right up and started snuggling and wagging her tail. When we walked out to the truck she hopped right in and sat down like it was a everyday thing. She sat in my lap all the way home with her head hanging out the window. This is no small dog but it was worth it to see her so happy. She is all settled in and seems to love the homestead and its crazy mixture of family members. Or else that smile that has stayed on her face since arriving here is really laughter at her new weird family. More photos and stories to come. You can see she is under weight and needs lots of TLC but she is smiling now and we will get the weight on her quickly.

Boy did this dog luck out! No wonder she has a smile on her face.

She must have had loving owners at one time to be so domesticated and know how to seduce you into caring for her.

I wish Hilary and you a long life together, each bringing the other joy.

Bless your heart, sis, for adopting Hillary and giving her such a loving home. I have no doubt that she will thrive and gain weight with your TLC. The poor thing has had such a rough life but you've given her a second chance. I love you so for your kindness!! xoxo

awwww, she's a perfect match for you. Such a pretty dog too. I'm not familiar with that breed.
Kudo's to you for coming to the rescue.
