Little Lev was dumped at an adoption day. Her “owners” neglected to tell us that she was born with a heart defect. She spent the next three years in the shelter waiting for the right family. It is not easy for an animal with a problem to live in a shelter. We struggled with the question- are we keeping her alive for her or for us. We all loved her but it was so sad to see her struggle when she was tired and got picked on by other dogs.
Finally, the right people saw the ad (below). They loved her in spite of and because of her problem. They had struggled with a similar situation. Lev has been in her forever home for two years and we get pictures every few months. She is happy and loved and will never be homeless again.
