And then our little amigos go to live their own life with their new family… We are always thrilled to hear about how our kids are doing! Below are some of the letters we received from our happy new families!
A letter from…Dulce & Mommy Julia
It took her about a week of resting and quiet time before her puppy nature emerged. She loves to play with me and I take her everywhere I go. She loves the beach. She is adjusting wonderfully. She is still a bit fearful around other dogs and loud noises, but is gradually adjusting. I’m guessing she grew up in the country? We go for a run in the park almost every day, where she loves chasing birds, squirrels and rabbits. She knows her basic commands and is such a sweet, dear little spirit.
I know the work you do must be challenging, rewarding, and often heartbreaking. Thank you for sending me Dulce. We are great companions and she has added to my life tremendously.
A letter from…Sadie (formerly Theresa) & Mommie Angela
A letter from…Roxy (formerly Negrita) and Jenna
I’m writing to you because my family and I have been lucky enough to adopt Negrita. We call her Roxy now, and she’s been with us a little over 2 weeks. She is still shy around new people, but she is very bonded to me and my husband, and she greets my 2 boys (ages 8 and 6) with tail wags and kisses every morning.
We’ve yet to see her really play, like you mention in your letter, but I think it’s because she has been through quite a lot of changes in her little life, and still isn’t sure if this is her “forever” home. She is doing very well though – we have a large fenced in back yard with lots of trees and chipmunks to chase. She’s also becoming a good little running buddy with me. She stays right at my side like she’s been doing it forever!
Thanks for keeping her happy and safe in Puerto Rico!
