Review for Lap Dog Rescue of New Mexico, Tijeras, NM, USA
This sweet boo is Evie. My husband and I adopted her in the summer of 2016 after we had lost one of our beloved pups. Evie, who was known as Lilly at the time, had recently lost her person and with nobody to take her, she was left at a vet where she was found by a LDRNM partner.
Evie was a senior when we adopted her, and we soon learned a lot about her. She was mute, and she didn’t do great with the stairs/jumping due to an old injury. I’d have to carry her up and down the stairs, which I never minded. Though she wasn’t a highly adventurous dog, she loved going down to the water when we’d go to the lake, and enjoyed being out for walks with her “brothers” (we had a stroller for Evie). Evie’s favorite place in our home was her dog bed; eventually I’d bring her up in the bed to sleep at night because that’s where she likes to be the most. My favorite thing about her was her joyous “buck” she would do when I would come home; she would excitedly be run around the house to greet me. It was the cutest.
We lost Evie on May 21 this year. As much as we would have loved more time with her, it comes with the territory of adopting a senior. I am glad she had a life full of love in her last years, and I am so grateful that Lap Dog Rescue brought such a special girl into our lives.
