My Dog’s Name: Hannah
Age of My Dog: 15 years
My Dog’s Birthday or Gotcha Day (or month): December 16, 2012
About My Dog’s Birthday: We adopted Hannah on the last day of Chanukah last year so we named her Hannah the Chanukah dog.
For rescues only: how I got my dog: We adopted Hannah from a friend of mine who runs a rat rescue. She adopted Hannah from Sonoma Animal Care & Control thinking it would be a hospice situation. She rescued Hannah at the 11th hour right before euthansia. Since Hannah was estimated to be 15 years old, she didn’t think she had a lot of time left. Well, it turned out that Hannah was quite healthy aside from some infected teeth and a few other non life threatening issues. She couldn’t keep Hannah and when my mom and I ran into her at Whole Foods she told us how desperate she was to find Hannah a home because she couldn’t keep her long term.
My mom wanted to think on it overnight and then we decided to adopt Hannah without even meeting her or seeing her picture. She’s been with us for 5 months now and adopting her was absolutely the right thing to do. She is the sweetest dog and sleeps next to me in bed each night.
