I adopted Maisy (aka Heidi) on Memorial day weekend of 2011 & have had her for a little over a year. I intentionally went looking for an older dog (out of the puppy stage) because I wanted an animal with energy that was already slightly trained & could not have found a better dog. It took a little while for her & her 2 kitty sisters to learn how to get along but now they interact as if they have been together forever.
When I first adopted Maisy, she was very insecure & scared of being alone (which wasn’t surprising since per her adoption records, she had been returned twice). I spent 6 months trying to figure out why not 1 but 2 people (or sets of people) could have given away this beautifully loving & very cuddly dog. I finally realized it is because she was meant to be with our family & that’s why she fits it so well. We all love her so much & cannot imagine life without her
