All in the Family


August 8, 2008

We adopted Nena about a month ago. She's a seven-month-old Boxer mix (We've still got no idea with what! Guesses?) Her previous owners left her with friends while going on vacation, and then told the friend they didn't want her. I can't imagine anyone abandoning her. Even in the shelter, when all the other dogs were frightened or worked up, she was calm and inquisitive and eager to make friends. I had thought I wanted a different dog at the shelter, but on the way out, I saw her. I immediately thought "Oh no, I've signed up to adopt the wrong dog! That girl is my dog! Now what do I do?" Fortunately, the Universe understood this, and the other dog went home with another family higher on his list. I insisted that we go back and adopt Nena. My family thought I was acting a bit crazy, but we soon came to realize this dog was supposed to be part of our family. She has already brought us great joy. She is curious, playful, and sweet. Nothing frightens her. Every time we take her for a walk she makes new friends! She also loves going to the dog park and swimming in the water. She has lots of energy and would happily play all day with people and dogs and then sleep like the (very cute) dead. :)

How could anyone just leave her and not want her back??? She's just precious and has such an expressive face. So glad you found her.

This dog, to everyone's surprise is Boxer/Pit Bull mix. It looks like someone took a picture of my dog, and put it on Nena's page. I am so sure, I'd bet my life on it with no doubt. Great dog!
