We love getting updates on our SGRR dogs! We recently got this note from SGRR adopter and volunteer Nancy...
Recently we marked the nine year anniversary of the day Garrett stepped off the transport and joined my small family. He had been found somewhere in Alabama wandering the streets, so flea ridden and allergic that he only had a line of hair going down his back. I was told that either Martha or Lisa Hume had come to this particular shelter to pick up another dog. When one of them asked about Garrett, she was told that no one would want him and that he was going to be put down the next day. Sunshine, of course, picked him up, treated him for heart worm and fostered him until it was time for his journey to Connecticut. From the day he arrived until now he has brought company to his brother, Chaucer and affection and sweetness to me and my extended family.
The amazing part of Garrett's story is that it's not unique. It's Sunshine's story, multiplied by the hundreds of families and dogs blessed by our group. I am so proud to be a part of such a wonderful organization.
So thank you, thank you Sunshine for my wonderful Garrett who lies curled against me as I write this.
