Location: Columbus, Ohio
Type: Labrador Retriever / Mutt mix
I volunteer at a local no kill shelter. Adella came in when she was only a 2 month old pup. I never looked at her with the intention of adopting her. I already had 2 dogs. Six months later one of my dogs passed away. Gracie, my boxer needed a buddy. So I went into the shelter and said “give me whoever’s been here the longest.” That happened to be Adella. BBD syndrome (big black dog) was her only “fault” as to why she waited 6 months to find a home. I’m pretty sure she’d tell you the wait was worth it! She is loved!
