Our big-eared brindle girl, Sissy Lou, convinced her foster family that she was meant to stay with them and was adopted by Johny and Yvonne! Sissy was born in a shelter and spent the first 6 months of her life there; her basic needs had been met but without socialization, she was skittish and had no self-confidence. She was rescued by RHS back in 2017 and went through intense training at K-9 University to teach her how to be a pet. It took a while, though, for her to find the right family. A couple of attempts were made over the years but they weren’t the best fit. When she was returned in 2019, her former fosters, Johny and Yvonne, once again made room in their home for her, and after a year of patient work on Sissy’s part to worm her way into the family for good, they realized they couldn’t let her go again.
Now known as Lulu, she has 2 canine sisters who were also RHS “foster failures” – Penny (RHS name Puzzle) and Kapu (RHS name Kacie). Thank you to Sue Knight who was Lulu’s first foster, to K9 University for all the guidance and help they’ve provided over the years and, most especially, to Johny and Yvonne for going through all the training with her and for being there every time Lulu needed them.
