Current Location: Katy Texas
Adoption Date: March 11, 2020
Adopted by: The Lizzi family
It’s difficult to convey how certain dogs just tug at our heart strings and it is difficult for them to be adopted and for us to have to say goodbye. I knew the minute I laid my eyes on Claire in her shelter mug shot that she was special and we jumped to tag her as soon as we could. She didn’t disappoint, she is “the perfect dog” and I don’t take saying that lightly.
Today was her day to leave and I told her adopter just how we felt and that if I didn’t have 150 dogs of my own already this girl would not be leaving the property.
Clair will live with the Lizzi family from Katy Texas, she will have two 11 year old twin boys to call her own and her dad is retired and will dote on her all day.
When he met Claire and sat with her a little bit feeling her calmness, and her perfectness, and his response was “wow”
I said I told you Claire is the perfect dog, she will have Retriever brother at home that is very old and quiet too.
Claire isn’t much for running and playing with other dogs so this will work perfect for her. When I was doing the adoption Travis texted me and said are they here to pick up Claire, i said yes and in a few minutes I saw that he had run over from his house on his day off to hug and kiss this perfect girl goodbye..
Bittersweet for sure, but we say so long Claire and we learned that her name will forever be Claire and that made me very happy too.
Happy life sweet girl, we will miss you
She presented herself into our news feed yesterday, I knew we were going to rescue dogs at the auction and I also knew we will be going into spring break at the Ranch and have no room for a dog to stay with us.
All of that is logical, what isn’t logical is a dog haunting you, so I tried to push past her all day and kept checking in to see if she had a rescue….she didn’t.. She’s so afraid she cannot move, she cannot go into the adoption area, and she will not be adopted..she can only be rescued and so that’s what we did.
Pam is picking her up at the shelter this morning and bringing her to us at the Ranch to understand who she is and figure out what’s best for her. After a few days she will go stay at the sanctuary until we can move past spring break..
