"In late December of 2014 through May of 2015, we lost three of our beloved dogs. The pain was so brutal, I told my husband, 'no more, ever'. But he really wanted to fill our house and yard with more dogs, and he finally convinced me to think about it.
We always had purebred Golden Retrievers and German Shepherds, so this time we decided to go the rescue route, and give our love to a dog in need.
"When I first started looking, the first rescue site I pulled up online was Close to Home Rescue. Their logo featured a heart, a paw print and a peace sign. I collect peace signs, so that caught my interest. The first dog I pulled up was Minnie, they said she was half Golden and half German Shepherd, my two breeds. That sealed the deal. We went to look at her on May 23, 2015, and fell in love with her at her foster mom’s house.
"When I was reading through her adoption packet later that day, I saw that she had her 'freedom ride' from the Columbiana Dog Pound to Close to Home Rescue on May 9, 2015, and that was the same day that my beloved five year old Golden, Faith, left this world. Min was meant to be.
"She was ten months old at the time and she made us laugh all day and night. We weren’t used to having younger pups! I never thought I would laugh again, but she healed my broken heart. As the old saying goes, 'who rescued who?'
"She’s been a true joy to have. She’s perfect. She has the biggest, funniest personality I’ve ever seen in a dog. She’s known for her huge smile and her photogenic personality.
"We are blessed to have her! We’ve always had at least three dogs, and Min was so full of energy, we could see right away that she needed a playmate, so our second rescue dog, Clooney, was on our radar. Stay tuned!"
