Sweet hope came to us all the way from Puerto Rico. She was hit by a car and had to get reconstructive surgery which required a long recovery process. But aside from that, the NY life turned out a bit more difficult for Hope than we anticipated. Every sound, every new person were terrifying to her. She wasn't going to open up just to anyone, and that was something that not many people were interested in dealing with. Until one day, a special someone took notice of our beautiful girl. A family who knew her personality and understood that it would take a lot of work to make her gain the confidence she so desperately needed. Not only that, they were willing to work with a professional trainer to get a better understanding of how to deal with fearful dog like Hope. And that is how we knew that this match was made in heaven. Enjoy the rest of your life, Hope! We will always miss you.
