Dante’s Adoption Story

Janet shares the story of how she adopted Dante, a gentle spirit who had been overlooked at the shelter until Janet found him!

Dante found himself at the shelter after being abandoned

I went to the shelter and picked out a dog for my daughter who had lost a pet.  When I was there I noticed a dog that stood back and wasn’t barking or jumping.  I went back and got him.  I found out that he had been up for adoption for several months and had been taken to several pet adoption days in the area with no one picking him.  He came to the shelter after being abandoned.  I found him to be housebroken and a gentle spirit. Now seven years later, he is my biggest protector not letting anyone near me other than family.  He never leaves my side when I am at home.  I can’t imagine my life without Dante!
