Shyla's Adopt-A-Versary

Hi Everybuddy -

Today's another special day - it's Shyla's one year anniversary! One year ago today Mom and Dad met her at a local shelter and fell in with a very thin pup that gazed into Dad's eyes and had him at hello. Very little is known about our sweet girl's past other than the fact that she was extremely underweight and in the danger zone for survival. She is yet another shining example of a neglected dog who has every reason to hate mankind, yet is so sweet and loving that she charms everyone she meets. Here's a photo of her a couple weeks after coming into rescue. You can see how thin she is, especially in her hindquarters. This is after a bath and a good brushing which "fluffed" her malnourished coat a bit.

Can you tell Dad was getting the cheese out for a sandwich? It didn't take long for our girl to realize that food was kind of nice! We'd like to say Happy Adopt-A-Versary Shyla.....and we're so glad you're part of our pack!

You have great parents and Shyla is so lucky to have you all as her new family. We are so glad the world has some awesome people like your parents left.. Louie feels the same way. Mom and Dad adopted him even though no one wanted him because he was deaf. He is truly a special member of our family..

Hi Echo
Please give Shyla lots of licks from me. I'm sorry I'm late wishing her a VERY HAPPY ADOPT-A-VERSARY.
We're real pleased Shyla made her way to you and your family. She sure looked terrible when you first took her in. She is safe and happy now.
I'm glad my mum adopted me too. I was never allowed to eat a bone, or get dirty or go to the beach, and coz I cried being outside in a kennel, I was completely de-barked. It's horrible not having a voice.
Love from Hammer
