Meet Semper Fi! This little girl comes from a family of military. Semper Fi is the Marine Corps motto, meaning 'Always Faithful' This is my grandmother's little dog who passed away recently :( I was sooo worried for her because she was so depressed & wouldn't make eye contact. She was obsessed with my grandma. Really, they were obsessed with each other almost to the point where it was unhealthy. My grandma & I caught her in 2016. We found out she was pregnant & she had 2 beautiful babies that found homes quickly. I wanted to adopt her out too but my grandma had just put her other little dog down & she needed a dog for her soul. So she stayed. My grandma was SO scared of losing her - she never let her outside. She used pee pads. I know this might sound cruel but my grandma didn't know any better and only wanted to protect this street dog. Can you imagine not going outside for 8 years? Can you imagine losing your mom & having your whole world flipped upside down? You can now understand why I was so worried for this little dog having to face such a huge transition. Since being with me for a few days now, she goes in / outside on her own & LOVES the sunshine and exploring - it's so cute to watch her discover this new life. She is looking for a patient home that will understand they need to go slow and allow her time to adjust, thrive and blossom. Whoever adopts her will need a secure yard. Spayed, vaccinated & microchipped. Let us know if you're interested!
