Tori and Chris adopted their precious girl, Indiana Rose Jones (aka ‘Indi) from Miami Dade County Animal Shelter on October 28th, 2016. She had been in the shelter for two months when they met her and finally gave her a forever home.Indi’s forever parents don’t know much of her previous life, other than the fact that she was left outside the shelter and the person who abandoned her ran off. They were told that she was three years old, but after visiting the vet, she is probably closer to two years old, if that. Because of the large scar on her neck, Tori, Chris and her vet believe that Indi was tied up with a rope or cable around her neck for a long time. Tori doesn’t even want to think of the conditions she lived in or why someone would do such a thing to her. Indiana can be possessive with her toys, is extremely timid, and it takes a while for her to warm up to men. She shows no aggression, but seems afraid of everything.Indi has been such a sweet and loving addition to her forever parents’ family. Tori has taken some time off work to help her adjust, get used to her new surroundings and help with her training. Indi is now a completely different dog than the one her mom and dad saw in the shelter.Indi instantly fell in love with her parents. She loves to cuddle, run, be outdoors, hunt for lizards and keep an eye on he neighborhood. She is so kind, plays well with other dogs, and is eager to please her family, even though she thinks she is sneaky sometimes. She’s getting used to the sounds around the house, and the garage door doesn’t scare her anymore! However, the trash truck terrifies her and she hides for protection under the table. She is incredibly smart and loves to give kisses.Indi’s shelter name was ‘Rosey’. She is so curious and likes to investigate everything. So, after Tori and Chris brainstormed with a few friends, ‘Rosey’ became Indiana Rose Jones, and her parents can’t imagine their lives without their little explorer.
