And, what a treat to read about Carnival and see the picture of her at home with a huge rope toy of her very own. Pretty Carnival came to League as part of a terrible hoarding case. She was very protective of her newborn litter. The pups were outgoing, and people-centered. But Carnival remained fearful of people and came back to the shelter where she stayed for months. Even though staff and volunteers worked with her, she remained hesitant. That all changed shortly after she moved into her forever home. She is doing great - I hardly recognize her as the scared dog at the shelter, wrote a friend of Carnival's guardian.
Skipper, Sailor, Judy and Carnival were among the 1,713 dogs and cats who left the League for permanent, loving forever homes in 2012. Happy New Year!
