Review for Allies Haven Animal Rescue, Fort Worth, TX, USA
I was introduced to Allies by a friend who was determined I needed a puppy. I have never seen any dog and not fallen in love. Sherri (and Emily) were so great when I just couldn’t commit because of many reasons at the time. They welcomed me to events and answered questions for me every time I was curious about a dog. I donated when I could.
Then the same friend started sending messages about a really adorable black dog that ‘needed’ me. Her name was Susie Q. She was very shy with people but loved other dogs, I have another dog that had the same issues. Susie had gone to a couple of homes but had been returned for various reasons, once after one night. Sherri was concerned that she would be with them forever. So I agreed to come see her at a meet & greet. I held her in my lap and loved on her for probably an hour, she never looked at me and trembled most of the time. Several days later, she came to my house. She hid for a few hours after Sherri left. I have to admit, her watching Sherri leave broke my heart and made me doubt my decision. Within a couple of days she was following the other dogs out in the yard, sometimes she would sit by me or just not run when I walked in the room. Small steps. She’s a different dog now. Very loving to me, loves her brother and sister. LOVES doggie dogcare, has carved out ‘her’ spot on the bed. I think she’s happy, but my friend was wrong, I needed her. All the credit goes to Sherri and Allies for their care, patience and never giving up the search for a home. I will always be thankful and recommend them to every one I know.
