We adopted Biscuit just two short months ago, but it seems like she has been a member of the family for years. My husband and 7 year old daughter stopped by the NHA without the the intention of adopting a dog that day. We had been discussing the possibility of adoption, but my daughter has been fearful of energetic and jumpy dogs, so we were convinced that now was not the right time. But then along came Biscuit...one of the most loving, sweet, loyal, and gentle dogs I have ever encountered. She is lazy inside, but LOVES a nice long walk. She immediately sensed my daughters apprehension, and from the very first moment has been extremely gentle with her. Although she came to us quite overweight (we call her big boned!), she has lost close to 10 pounds and is enjoying running and being a dog again.
Biscuit was clearly well-loved by her previous owners, and we appreciate that she was taken care of (and trained) so well. Thank you very much for the opportunity of adopting such an amazing animal. She has completely transformed our lives, and especially the life of my daughter, in a very good way.
