|"I just wanted to contact you guys to show how much I appreciate the work you do!
We adopted Aspen (formerly Celia) exactly one year ago, and wanted to send you an update!
Aspen has become an integral part of our family. When we first brought her home to foster, she was shy, timid, and severely underweight. She wouldn't eat and didn't even play much.
After a lot of love and patience, she has grown into a playful happy dog who loves food. She is so gentle to my 4 year old son, and a companion of his. She loves going on walks, hikes, and attempting to chase anything small (she has claimed 4 birds and a squirrel in our backyard!) She always waits in front of the door for us to get home, and even watches us leave out the window each day. We also love getting serenaded by her (not loud) howls, which we often join in with! She also loves neck and back scratches, and will even put her paw on your hand to get you to scratch her!
We couldn't have asked for a better dog, and are so glad we had the opportunity to adopt her and give her a forever home.
Included are some pictures, one of which from when we first brought her home.
Amanda, Chase and Dedric"
