All in the Family


German Shepherd Dog / Mixed

Hayley is a very special puppy! Hayley is a rescue pup! My son and I were grocery shopping. We were debating in the pet food aisle which brand our cats like. A woman shopping for puppy food commented that our conversation was quite comical. My 10 year old son is NEVER wrong...So my son explained to her that we had found a pregnant cat who had kittens one week after we found her. We found forever homes for all the kittens. We ended up keeping the momma cat and one of her babies! She proceeded to tell him that she fosters puppies. We left the woman and continued our shopping. While we were packing our car, we saw the woman carrying the puppy underneath her arms. We ran over to see this most adorable creature. She told us that this puppy was one of nine puppies who were found in a box at our local dump. The organization gave this puppy the name "Sophie". Our mamma cat is named "Sophie". We said good-bye to the woman. I did not exchange any personal information. My son goes home and tells his two sisters about the puppy we saw. I calmly said, we are not getting a puppy. We'll discuss it when your father gets home from his business trip. I couldn't get this puppy off my mind. I was upset that I didn't even get a name and phone number from this woman. So I went online determined to find this puppy. After about an hour of searching all the local website shelters and rescue organizations, I found a picture of a "Sophie" puppy. It was her - it was the puppy we had just met! I emailed the organization, who put me in contact with the woman I had met just the night before. The puppy wasn't ready for adoption yet, but she said that we could have her for the weekend to see if it was a fit. That first night we changed her name to "Hayley"...she never went back to her foster home. Hayley has given us an unconditional love that we have never experienced before her. She has so much love to give us and we for her. She has been such a happy addition to our already busy family! And, my husband does all the grocery shopping now!!
