Save A Dog, Inc. - Success Story
 Feli, formerly Kiwi

Feli is special to all who meet her. She is an ambassador for senior dog adoptions, being maybe already nine years old when we teamed up in April 2004. Building a relationship with an older dog, with both the dog and you having a history and assumptions and expectations, can be a rich and wonderful experience. We trained intensely, she learned many new things and situations, including city traffic and visitors to the house, and she got her CGC diploma six months after adoption. She delights people who have never seen this before by calmly walking off leash even in downtown areas. They stop and admire her beauty and her ability, and are surprised to hear she was a stray and shelter dog, and adopted as a senior dog. The little kids in the neighborhood love their gentle ‘doggie’, she smiles serenely when they hug her and even when a little one topples over and falls on her. She comes with me to work and snores softly during meetings. She has taken foster dogs and foster cats under her grandmother shepherd care, calming the timid and the frightened such as Ginger, disciplining the cheeky, and when I once dropped a leash she herded a little squirrel hunter back. I am as safe as can be with her – she is a good shepherd dog who knows how and when to protect her home and her pack.

Thank you so much for saving her and bringing her into my life.

Among the hundreds of pictures of her I chose one taken shortly after her adoption, her coat not yet shiny, but with a smile so big it’s inconceivable how she could fit it into her delicate, chiseled face. She knows. One with her friend Callie (adopted as a senior special needs kittie) who sleeps with her on her bed, and one just out in the woods last summer.
