We adopted Gracie (formally Sandy) on Dec. 1 after multiple trips to the shelter to find the perfect dog. We had no plans to adopt a puppy but from the moment we met Gracie, we knew she was perfect for us. She’s a truly loving dog full of kisses! We were told she would be a big dog and 6 weeks later she is already 40 pounds and only 16 weeks old!! She is a complete joy and I am so glad that the shelter was patient with us as we kept coming back to find the right dog for us.
