Life with a Dal is unpredictable, a true adventure.

Davey came into rescue in August 2010, one of the most frightened young boys that I have ever had in foster care. He had been legally removed from a home due to abuse and neglect in June and had spent two months in a shelter. The shelter notes that arrived with him indicated that he had been “mistreated by a male and is a little timid around men.”

Davey improved in foster care, learned to run and play with the other dogs, and loved affection and attention. He was adopted in November 2010 by Patt and Sean, a wonderful couple who had had Dals before. He went home to Chicago with them and learned all about city life, toys, and doggie day care, which he adored. He loved going to training, and graduated with flying colors from “Shy Dogs,” then “Middle Management,” and finally “Focus.” He made remarkable progress. Patt and Sean were delighted.

And then came Santa.
