Princess has found a home! When I made the prior post trying to find a loving home for Princess, the German Shepherd that was home alone in a house after her owner passed away and I had the house up for sale, I had hopes for success but was pretty doubtful.
Thanks to the tip from Bern (since switching my website the comments are gone) telling me to post an ad (it was free) on www.petfinder.com. I really didn't have much faith as there were so many ads. Also, as I am a fan of tiny dogs. I just didn't think there would be much interest in a 4-year-old German Shepherd.
Lo and behold, I got a phone call soon after from a wonderful woman who offered to adopt Princess although she already had 2 large dogs and I wasn't sure if Princess would get along with them as she was an only dog. This lady offered to bring Princess to better health, a better weight, socialize her, and at the least foster her until she could find someone else to take her in.
However, during that first phone call, it was still left a bit tentative. She called back the next day saying she was falling in love with Princess, especially after I gave her the link to this story. I was able to give her information to the relative that was giving Princess care and assumed it had all worked out.
I hadn't heard anything so I figured Princess was in her new home. Unfortunately, I found out the lady that was going to pick up Princess had a problem - her husband was in a bad auto accident and broke both of his legs! I felt bad for them and bad for Princess as I truly thought this was Princess's only chance at a new home.
This lady ended up calling me back after all of this trauma (including the death of her beloved cat), still interested in Princess, but for her neighbors instead. I just found out that Princess was picked up by her new owners and there was a tearful goodbye from her two temporary caregivers (it is very easy to fall in love with this dog).
I want to thank the couple of people that were willing to help us and I would like everyone to keep the Petfinder site in mind if they are ever looking for a new pet. I hope Princess is enjoying her new home as she certainly has a lot of love to give.
