Dear Rocket Dog,
I’m writing to send you an update on Lucky the little
mix we adopted in September. We first met Lucky at your mobile adoption in the Castro, you had a bunch of
dogs you had just rescued from a hoarder and we wanted to help and decided to foster. We met Lucky and he was so small and sweet, you can tell he’d been through a lot. The poor little guy was in bad shape! He had almost no fur, he had worms, and needed surgery. To top it off, he is also blind in one eye and he was so shy and scared of people and loud noises.
After taking him home, we fell in love with him immediately and decided to adopt him, not just foster. After he realized we loved him and he could trust us he really opened up. Seven months later, he’s a whole different dog. He’s back to a healthy weight, with a beautiful new coat of white fur. He loves to nap, cuddle, loves to play with his teddy bear, he loves kisses, and he really loves treats. He’s still scared of loud noises and when people walk behind him or move too fast, but he’s starting to open up to strangers that he meets at Dolores Park. He also just got a new little sister named Emmie from Wonder Dog rescue and he enjoys playing with her too! We just wanted to say thanks you guys for a wonderful addition to our family. We love Lucky so much and have you to thank for bringing him to us!
