They loved me a lot, took me to fun clicker training classes, got me a needed hip surgery, and helped me with all of…

Yes Kids? 12+ years Background: Well…I’m sorry to say, I did not have a happy or safe early life. I was one of 43 dogs that were kept by a hoarder in a rural town in TN. Lucky for us, the animal control officers found out about the terrible conditions in which we were being kept, and took us all away to the shelter to find new, much better homes. That was back in June of 2013. As if that wasn’t a terrible enough experience, then the building next to the animal shelter exploded! Seriously! The shelter was in danger of catching fire as…
