Sierra's Scoop

Today I want to share my adoption story. I feel like the luckiest dog in the world. I love my Mommy and Daddy and my brother Teddy Bear. My life wasn't always so great though. I don't really remember my birth Mommy very well. I was taken from her when I was only a month old and she couldn't stop it from happening. Then I remember being at a park and waiting and waiting. I didn't know what else to do. It got dark and I didn't have my Mommy. I was so scared. Those were the worst nights of my life. Then I was taken to the Sacramento S.P.C.A. where I was named Fargo. After being there for a few days I was labeled un-adoptable, aggressive, and overly protective of my food bowl. I got sick with a bad cough that made me sound like a boy. One day a nice man from Creatures of Heart Sanctuary named Kurt came and said he would find me a home. First he took me to the vet and gave me medicine then he said I needed a new name. He called me Sierra because I was as white as the snow in the Sierra's. So the story goes...Mommy was looking on Pet Finder and saw my picture. She called Kurt and said she wanted to meet me. So Daddy, Mommy, and Teddy Bear drove all the way to the Sacramento Petsmart to see me. I was put on a leash so Mommy and Daddy could walk me around to see what I was like. I said goodbye to my friend Kurt and left with my new family as the happiest girl ever.....the rest is history in the making. Here is a photo from my first day home....
