Adopted! A new beginning for Gizmo!

The second week of June brought several people who were interested in Gizmo. She was crossposted on Facebook, on Petfinder classifieds, listed on Russell Rescue, and on Last Chance Dog Rescue Alabama. Life with Dogs posted her as well.

We interviewed two potential adopters, but unfortunately we only have one Gizmo. When I told Shannon that Gizmo wanted her to be her new Mom, she said that Gizmo will live the rest of her sweet life with them. She took a piece of my heart with her, but she is happy in her new life and that means the world to me.

Gizmo has a terrier mix sister named Honey. She is a gentle little dog, with a calm and sweet spirit.

She also has a brother named Henry, but he didn't slow down long enough to get a good picture!

Here she is meeting her family in her new home. I hear her Dad said that Gizmo is going to be his dog. She's doing very well and loves everyone.

The hardest part of leaving her was seeing Gizmo look up at me as though we were leaving together. Her Dad took her out back with the other dogs so she wouldn't see me leave.

She was my Baby Girl, even for such a short time.

  1. Awwwww, Gizmo was a sweetie and we know how much you will miss her. But it must make you happy to know she is with a good family. Nice work.

  2. Yes, I will miss her, but I am happy with her new home. I'm also happy she learned to live with dogs and has two small dogs to keep her company. She was wonderful and will be missed, but she is not far so I may visit her sometime in the future. ;o)

  6. Amazing, isn't it -- no matter how short a time they stay with us, they win our hearts. We can't help it. We're hardwired for love, to give and receive, no matter if it breaks our hearts a little every time. But the heart is like a bone; it breaks, and it heals, and when it heals it is stronger than before.
