While visiting pet supplies plus in Toledo Ohio we were immediately drawn to a charming laid back beagle mix named lucy , out for display with the Dogworks Rescue Group. We were going to purchase a dog from a breeder, but at that moment it was clear, there were plenty of perfect dogs out there that needed homes. We immediately started the adoption process to give Lucy a home. At the time, we felt the joy of bringing Lucy home and giving her the home she never had. But, unknown to us at the time was the hidden benefit and joy in the form of her relationship with our 8 year old Golden Retreiver, Shadow. Shadow had never had the companionship of another dog, he was getting older and starting to struggle getting up and moving around. All of a sudden Shadow started to play with Lucy, countless hours of wrestling around and chasing each other through the yard. Shadow seemed to be reversing in age. To this day Shadow has lost weight, springs to his feet in an instant, and is the happiest dog ever. Lucy is also one happy dog. She has her human parents, her 8 human sisters, her brother Shadow, and her kitty sister Grace ( who hates her guts, but hey they'll grow to love each other!!) Adopting a rescue dog was the best thing we could have done, we are so happy with Lucy and so glad this group exists.
