When a bunch of dogs arrived at The Little Guild in West Cornwall, Connecticut, from the congested Habersham County Animal Shelter in Georgia, one dog in particular stood out. Jodi’s specialness was immediately apparent to the shelter personnel, and after consulting with the manager of the Habersham County shelter, they learned that everyone else in Georgia shared same opinion.
According to Kelley Turick, a member of the staff at The Little Guild, “Jodi meant a lot to the employees and volunteers from their shelter.” When volunteers found out we were going to take Jodi in and find her a home, they sobbed.
Jodi spent seven years with her family before being turned over to a shelter in Georgia. The Little Guild staff members who welcomed her could tell she was terrified and had no idea what was happening or where her family had gone.
When she first arrived, Turick said, “[She] was afraid and all she wanted to do was go home.”
Since then, Jodi has been much more at ease in her new environment and has developed relationships with staff members and volunteers. She has grown to trust her new friends, enabling her wonderful personality to shine through and winning everyone over even more.
Turick continued, “She has a lovely attitude and is constantly happy to be around others. She is an old lady, but she is still full of life and likes her regular walks… She enjoys playing catch outside, but she also enjoys cuddling under a blanket with you. She is a genuinely sweet young lady who means a lot to us.
It’s amazing that Jodi hasn’t been adopted yet, especially considering how perfectly she would fit into almost any home. She enjoys children, cats, and other dogs, and she prefers to spend as much time as she can with her loved ones. Her search for a home might soon come to an end because she has attracted some adoption interest and has a family ready to meet her.
Her friends in Georgia and Connecticut are eager for Jodi’s real family to find her since they know they are somewhere out there.
