Jenny in Time for the Holiday!
I'm sure you all remember this heart breaking story. 11 year old JLo was left at our vet's office and abandoned. With the rising vet bills and the family deciding to not return, the office was left with few options. They asked New Leash on Life to take JLo on and get her adopted. It was a tall order. She was older and thus has the 'old dog stigma', she had been in boarding for so long that she became leash reactive, and she had infected paws and ears.
We put the call out- this dog matched what NLOL stands for, taking in the dogs that would have been put down or overlooked because we believe that there is someone for every type of dog. Because we can only take on as many dogs as we have foster homes, we hoped someone would step up to the plate and let this beauty come home with them. And boy did people step up!! We were overwhelmed with the love and concern that was extended to JLo and were so happy that a former adopter opened up their home to foster JLo.
JLo (now Jenny) came with quirks and kinks that needed to be worked out, but overtime, she grew to know her family and fit right in. We are so blessed that Halstead's (Moe) parents decided to officially adopt Jenny after his passing this year.
She is IN LOVE with her new family, the fenced in back yard where she is able to run throughout the day. She came just in time for the Holiday!
When trying to take a picture, she could barely contain her excitement and sit still. But, her paws and ears are looking fabulous, she looks at rest and ease, and her coat is looking so much better!
Welcome home Jenny!
