My husband Stewart and I adopted Heidi, one of her foster dogs, a little less than year ago. My sister brought Heidi her over one day and Shelby our Golden Retriever fell in love with her. Not too long after that my husband and I did too.

Heidi was painfully shy, skittish and afraid of men when we met her, but we knew she was meant to be with us when she instantly loved Stewart.

Heidi has made great strides with her shyness and will actually venture out into the living room when we have company, as opposed to staying in the bedroom closet like she used to. She is very loyal, a great patient playmate and sister to Shelby and a wonderful companion! We are so glad we gave her a chance to break out of her shell!
