Building trust when your dog breaks free

It can be tough to move forward after losing a great dog. We were so lucky to have found our 14-year-old-second-chance dog, Ziggy, who recently passed away.

My husband and I agreed that adopting and saving a new dog would be the best way to honor Ziggy’s memory.

After a search, we found a potential dog that was a fit for us. I was the one available on the day of our appointment at a local shelter to greenlight the adoption.

When I met Maui (her shelter name). I decided she was the one. I looked into her eyes and saw such pain. I wanted to erase her pain.
