|Tristan / red and white boy (happy go lucky, fun loving) // Ginny / Tri color girl(serious, brave, protector of the pair)|
They walked in our house, sniffed around. Walked right into the dog crate and fluffed the blanket and knew they were finally home.
Every day Ginny will look in my eyes for reassurance and I give it gladly. She really seems to understand my empathy for her. When strangers come to meet them she will look at me like, “hey, you promised we could stay here.” We first noticed that Tristan is very jumpy around certain noises and appears to have a couple small scars on his back. Also he was underweight. Ginny seemed to have emotional scars and trust issues and was overweight.
After two weeks we adopted both dogs. Tristan has gained weight and Ginny has lost a little. Their coats are now shiny, they are happy and healthy. They have fallen into a happy routine running and playing in their new yard (fenced in and escape proof of course). We are still working on leash training but they do enjoy being walked. Both have learned to sit, down, roll over, back, and stay, leave it, give paw, and crawl. Tristan always comes when called. However, Ginny is still determined to keep some control of her own. They have very different personalities, but are great together. We could never imagine one without the other. Yes, we are spoiling the two of them. Ginny and Tristan have been down a hard road and deserve a happy ending. We are thrilled to share it with them.
