Formerly Dippin' Dots, Now Aria

Dippin' Dots, now named Aria, was abandoned overnight at the shelter in September. Scared and all alone this cute bulldog wasn't sure what to expect. Luckily for her, her shelter stay was short and a family quickly adopted this sweet girl. Recently her new family wrote to us and sent photos of loving her new life!

"I wanted to let you know how much we appreciate the work you all do day in and day out. You’re patience with our first dog, Hendrix, during the meet and greet and dog to dog was wonderful. Since arriving at her new home, Aria has come out of her shell. She loves to cuddle any chance she gets. She has made herself a “spot” on the couch. Her and her brother, Hendrix, have been getting used to each other. The first few days were tough on both dogs, but they are slowly opening up to each other. I have no doubts they will be the best of friends. Aria has found her “ furever” home with us. We could not be happier about adding her to our family."
