I don’t think I’ve ever shared Sancho’s story, but it’s very meaningful to my family, so here goes 💜
In 2013, a few months before Sancho came into our lives, my father passed way under very sad and unexpected circumstances. We were completely distraught and struggling to find happiness under all the grief.
Then suddenly, the neighbor’s dog (Sancho) started showing up at our house.
At first, he’d just come to our yard to say hi, but then he started coming inside and staying over for longer and longer periods. He became so attached to us that he would cry and howl at his house until he had the opportunity to escape and run straight to our place! I remember opening the front door at 7am on rainy day and there was Sancho, soaking wet, staring up at me with this intense love. He was a beacon of hope for us in such bleak times, and a sign that everything was going to be ok.
Eventually the neighbors (a very kind family) decided he would have a better life with my mom, who could give him all the time and attention he needed. I think we needed him more than he needed us! Sancho is been blessing our lives everyday since. Just one of many examples on why animals are the greatest gift to the world ♥️ .
Isabella has been ADOPTED!
Our senior lady has found a lovely home. MOM is a retired nurse and she is quite excited to dote on Isabella.
Isabella’s MOM was missing the love of a dog since losing her companion not to long ago.
Now she is enjoying having a walking, shopping partner and more.
Some comments from MOM;
“Hi just got back from our morning walk. Isabela is ready for a nap. I cleaned house yesterday and she was supervising.
:Yes she is sleeping on a dog bed at my side. We went to @unleashedbypetcolaverne
and got wet food and a couple toys. She is a good Walker and behaved in the store like an angel.
Just got home from the park. We walked for 30 minutes. She got tired 1/2 block from the car and was glad to be carried. We met several small dogs and she was calm and not aggressive even when they barking at her. I weighed her this morning and she is 27 lbs. We'll work on that. She is already napping.” On adoption Day MOM’S eyes got a lil teary as she told us how happy she was to have Isabella. “Isabella has brought LIFE back into the home.” 😊😪. These are the moments that fill our hearts with joy....happy tears!
Just a special, heartwarming adoption. ❤️🐾❤️🐾❤️🐾❤️🐾❤️🐾❤️
We also have to give a very special thank you to APPLE and her business for sponsoring some of ISABELLA’S fee.
It’s a win win for everyone.
🐾❤️🐾❤️🐾❤️🐾❤️🐾❤️🐾 Congratulations to all!

Posted @withrepost • @northcentralshelter Who couldn’t love a boxer’s face like Romi’s? This 11-year-old gal definitely has the “Ali look” given her mouth is presently somewhat misshapen. Not because of a TKO, but because Romi has some jaw masses and body masses and urgently needs to see a private vet outside of the shelter for care. Despite her present condition, this gentle, calm 60-pounder is an underdog who’s determined to offer unconditional love to the person who appreciates she’s managed to go the distance - even with a less than perfect smile. Romi loves to be pet and is stronger than she looks, volunteers say, but you might expect that from a dog who toughs it out but could use some TLC. If you like to skip rope, shadow box or share some love, she’s in your corner. Come rescue Romi today! 💝
