We fostered 6 year old Trippa last year after our last dog passed away from old age. He had been in the dog shelter for 9 months & his time was running out. We fell in love and after having fostering him for 2 months we signed his adoption papers. He's such a valuable addition to our household & has worked hard to overcome his issues. He's so eager to please, a total goof ball & makes us laugh every day. I suffer a long standing severe mental illness but with his company, love and beautiful personality he encourages me to face life head on. We are so grateful that we found the most perfect boy to be in our lives. We didn't rescue him, he rescued me & we love him more than words can describe.
