Sissy dog rescue by Tedi Rogers Newton Falls, OH


We knew we wanted another dog. Our Jojo had been raised with another dog before we got him and he was obviously missing the canine companionship. We watched petfinder, until I saw a dog that just called to me. A cute little girl, about a year old and picked up as a stray. She was white with one black ear and the sweetest expression ever. The shelter was about an hour away and at the time I was doing lots of mandatory overtime. I called to see if she was still there. She was, but they told me they could not hold her until the weekend when I was able to go.

Saturday came and we headed for the Cuyahoga County Animal Shelter. I called on the way to make sure they still had her. They did, but told me again that they could not hold her. I cried and begged them to at least stall until I could get there. I was sure that everyone would see what I saw in the beautiful face.

We had a meet and greet with Sissy and our Jojo. He was in love and could not get enough of her. She was playful, but more reserved than he was. I was completely hooked.

The was almost 6 years ago and Sissy has been a surrogate mom to countless foster pups and many dogs that were not dog friendly until they met her. She has a talent for drawing them out at their own pace. She is gentle, sweet and loving. I am not sure why no one else adopted her sooner, but I like to think that she was meant to be a part of our family. She and Jojo are still best friends and I could not have picked a better dog.
