Happy ending for Sylvi

I came in last Saturday 5/7 with my 6 year old daughter and adopted the 6 month old Chihuahua, she arrived 5/7 to the shelter. The nice people there said her name is Sylvie, they think she is about a year old instead of 6 months. I wanted you to know how much we love her and will cherish her forever. She is a wonderful part of our lives and are so thankful for her. Could you please write on the web page that she is adopted so that everyone knows she has a home.

Thank you so much!

Kind Regards,
Mindy McKegney
