Sissy Lou Adoption

A very special dog, Sissy Lou found a forever home tonight.  Sweet Lou Lou (this is what her foster parents calls her) was borne in the shelter and she had stayed there for 6 months before RHS rescued her.  When she made her MTP debut, she was so skittish that she didn’t want to come out from the crate.  After some training and TLC from the foster homes, she is totally transformed.  Thank you Sue Knight for fostering and giving her a good start.  Two thumbs up to Yvonne and Johny for fostering her and working patiently with her through the training, and special thanks to K9 University for the training that helped Sissy Lou gain the confidence she needed. Always great job from y’all!
