Both Irie and Tiki are from shelters and we couldn’t be more proud of that fact. Irie was first cared for by the Bulverde Humane Society, near San Antonio (where they took this great photo of her) and Tiki was rescued by what’s now Texas Humane Heroes in Leander, Texas. We don’t know much about their backgrounds before their adoptions. Irie was found running loose in town and brought to the shelter by a Good Samaritan; she had some bad scars on the side of her face that the vet thought was from dog fights and a case of mange. We could see that she was just perfect for us and she came home with us that day and has brightened each and every day since.
Tiki was found at the entrance to the shelter early one morning when shelter workers came in. They didn’t know if she’d been dumped at the shelter gates overnight or if she’d been drawn by the sound of barking, but, whichever it was, we’re so happy that she found her way to the shelter. We went to the shelter that day in search of an outgoing dog to help bring shy Irie out of her shell, and we found that in our Tiki. She continues to love to meet everyone she sees and brings a smile to so many people.
