Jimmy Adoption

Our quiet little terrier mix, Jimmy, was adopted today!  Jimmy’s paperwork listed him at 2 – 3 years old, but the vet believes he’s actually older – around 8 years old. That didn’t deter his new mom and dad; they wanted him and didn’t care how old he might be. Mrs. Brooks says that, after teaching middle school, nothing scares her! 🙂 He was adopted by a retired couple so they’ll be home with him all the time to snuggle with. They plan to keep Jimmy’s name.

Another rescue from the Balch Springs shelter, Jimmy was fostered first by Lisa Schorfheide and then by Purnima and Nikhil Parakh.
