Some dogs are harder to place than others. Mary, a hound mix we think is 4 years old, has been with us quite a while because she was very shy. We say “was” because we have extensively worked with her to bring her out of her shell. Guess what? It worked, and today a fantastic local family adopted her. She will be joining two canine siblings in a lovely home, and there wasn’t a dry eye in the house as she left.
