On September 10, 2022 we adopted a small 10-year-old female dog named Puppucino from Muttville’s Adoption Event.
She was limp when I first held her in my arms (see original adoption picture below). However, her heartbeat mysteriously permeated pure love right through her body to mine. Her name is now Georgiana, aka “Georgie.”
Georgie clearly had some rough times as a stray. Thankfully, during her excellent care at Muttville, she received and survived a double surgery in late July. We decided that although she didn’t seem like she would be able to do much, we would give her all the love and care possible.
Around day 10, Georgie gave us a big surprise. She woke up transformed. She must have greatly healed from the surgery. It was puppy time! She became a little rocket on our walks and occasionally surpassed our other 5-year-old dog. She trotted up and down the patio steps, finishing up with zoomies to her food bowl. What!!?
Although Georgie’s a senior, she’s Miss Personality Plus. She surprises us and makes us laugh every day. She’s a puppy at heart, and still actively trotting around despite being a bit sight- and hearing- impaired. This wonder dog wraps everyone-including other furry creatures-around her little paws.
Despite my enthusiasm, I’ve found we’re not unique. Other testimonials on the Muttville website say the same thing; these dogs go beyond all expectations to give their unconditional love. Why wouldn’t every dog lover adopt a senior dog from Muttville?! It’s some kind of magic.
I hope that other adoption seekers and Muttville dogs will find their forever meant-to-be adoptions, especially during the holidays. We’d do it all over again in a heartbeat.
