Dog Rescue Stories: Melody the Taco Terrier
By Jarissa Aquinde, Positively Woof Rescue and Adoption Story Editor
She was dropped off at the shelter with her seven siblings and mother at only two days old on March 21st. The shelter took very good care of them for a couple of weeks, but it was time for them to go to their forever home.
As soon as Danett, Melody’s forever mom, walked in the room, she knew that Melody (who was named Hattie at the time), was going to be the one
. The runt of the litter, she was eager to come to the front, but she was stepped on by her bigger siblings.
Danett picked up several of the pups, but when she held Melody, it was different. It felt right
. Melody’s forever parents filled out the papers, and then they waited anxiously for the interview call. After a few questions, sweet, silly Melody was theirs!
Danett can’t stress enough how good it feels to be able to adopt a pet. It has been the greatest choice she’s ever made.
Although they aren’t 100% certain of Melody’s breed, the closest thing they found is taco terrier (toy fox terrier chihuahua mix).
Her family loves her more and more everyday.
