Juanishia & Lady
Juanishia, a Washington Animal Rescue League caretaker, loves every animal who comes through our doors. Every so often, however, there is that one very special dog or cat who needs a little more love and a little more attention. Such was the case with Violet. The 5 pound, 10-year-old chihuahua was rescued from a puppy mill several months ago. No telling how many litters of puppies she had over the years. In between the time of her rescue and her arrival at the League, she was living in a shelter in Georgia. Juanishia started spending a little extra time with Violet every day. She was determined to give the dog all of the love she had been missing for so long.
Day after day Juanishia watched potential adopters walk right past Violet's den. Finally, Juanishia decided enough, she adopted the sweet dog with the sad eyes, took her home and named her Lady. "She sleeps with me and gets along great with the cats, I just love her," Juanishia reports.
