Meet the newest addition to my family, Dani. When I first saw her photo on PetFinder, I just knew that she belonged with me. On July 14, 2012, I made the four hour trip to Elliston, Virginia and adopted her from the Dalmatian Rescue of Southwest Virginia.
Dani is approximately one year old and weighs in at a whopping 34 pounds. She is deaf in her left ear but can hear just fine with her right. If you look closely at her photo, you’ll see that she has one brown eye and one blue eye. Dani had a rough start in life. Though I don’t know much about her history, I do know that was pulled from a shelter in Ohio on the day she was to be euthanized. She lived in West Virginia briefly and was then turned over to the rescue group in Virginia. She is now living in Tennessee and loving it!
Molly and Roxy accepted Dani into the pack pretty quickly, but Bosley had a hard time. Having been the baby before she came along, he was reluctant to give up his role. It took him a while, but he has finally accepted Dani too.
As I’m sure most of you know, I have a special place in my heart for all dogs, but especially Dalmatians. Ever since Cruella came into my life in 2002, I have been in love with the breed. Cruella was the canine love of my life. Sadly, I lost her to a sudden cardiac issue in 2010, but I will carry her in my heart always.
I am thankful to have been able to take Dani in and give her a good home. Molly, Roxy, Bosley, and I are enjoying our time with her!
