I was heartbroken when Boomer, my 17 year old Springer Spaniel died. I wanted another dog but did want not a puppy. I was leery of rescue groups after a bad experience with an aggressive Basset rescue. I saw a pug on Petfinder available for adoption through R & D Rescue. I spoke with Karen several times, moved through the adoption process quickly. She asked if I wanted to meet a sweet little one year old Basset that just weaned puppies. She said this dog would be a good fit for my family. I said no way, no Basset Hound. I drove to the clinic to meet the Pug. He was a nice dog but I did not have real connection with him. Karen was very understanding then mentioned that she brought the Basset too, just in case we wanted to meet her. It was love at first sight. I knew instantly that she was my dog. That was three years ago and I am still crazy about Simone. Karen really knows the animals in her care and her advise made a good match. It was reassuring that Simone was fostered with children before being placed. Everything Karen told me about Simone was spot on. This is the only rescue group I would ever consider adopting from again. Thanks to Karen and the foster family for letting me adopt this wonderful dog, you healed my broken heart.
