Hello my friends! I’m excited to share this special rescue story with you – and this time; no cabinets, dressers or tables involved.
Meet Gidget. She’s the newest member of our family and Salvaged Inspirations Team and she’s the sweetest thing ever.
Gidget is part Pug and part Yorkshire Terrier and approximately 10-12 months old.
This cutie was abandoned and then picked up as a stray somewhere near Sistersville, West Virginia. Thankfully, an Animal Rescue Team in Ohio stepped in to save her from a high-kill shelter.
When the Ohio organization no longer had space for her, they reached out to the volunteers at Take Me Home; a long distance rescue organization here in Ontario. Gidget took the long trip north, and from there she found a beautiful foster home with Lu in Mississauga, and finally her forever home here with me.
Until now, she’s been dealt a hard hand. But through all the helping hands she’s encountered, everyone’s been surprised and impressed at how charming, sweet and easy going she’s been. All the volunteers who have come in contact with this beautiful little soul have nothing but praise for her.
I feel extremely blessed and lucky to have been chosen over the other sixty-eight (68) applicants who had applied for Gidget! She’s truly captured and warmed my heart!
It’s definitely ‘easier’ to go buy a puppy from a breeder. I found it somewhat overwhelming and heartbreaking searching through rescue sites because there are some seriously sad stories and you just want to save them all.
But having said this, it feels SO GOOD adopting a rescue and I would encourage anyone looking for a fur friend to do so! Once I saw her, it just felt right …like Gidget and I were meant to be.
… and this rescue; NO re-styling needed – she’s PERFECT as is! 😉
I tried to get a really good pic of Gidget and I but she was camera shy.
From the bottom of my heart, a BIG THANK YOU to all my friends/followers on Facebook who encouraged me to look into adopting a rescue dog. And thank you to all the volunteers who helped Gidget along the way.
Have an amazing day and Happy Holidays to you and yours!
