“My husband and I fell in Love with Nellie.
We went to an event at ARF (the Animal Rescue Fund). We had been talking about getting a dog forever, and we knew we were both vulnerable.
We never got to hear the speakers at the celebration of the animals because there was a van with the adoptable animals in it and I made a B-line for the van.
Nellie put her nose against the front of her crate and started talking to me. I summoned my husband and he asked if we could walk her around the grounds. We took her for a walk and she was very happy to be out of her confinement.
My husband picked her up and she melted in his arms. He was overcome with tears and we knew we wanted to be her parents.”
