Our story of how Petfinder changed our lives is sponsored by Purina and we’re excited to share our story! Petfinder is celebrating it’s 20th anniversary and we’re excited to celebrate with them because we found Toby with help from Petfinder.
How Petfinder Changed Our Lives
The story actually begins 8 years ago when Justin and I got married. I left my dog with Grambo because he loved living with her dog and found myself without a dog for the first time in probably 20 years. Let’s just say that I wasn’t handling it well! Luckily, Justin was supportive of us getting a new pet just a few months after we got married.
I knew I wanted to adopt and was hoping to find another boston terrier. Luckily on Petfinder, I was able to find a local rescue who had a boston terrier available. So we made an appointment and off we went!
Well, as you can see, Toby is NOT a boston terrier! He’s actually a rat terrier so the story continues.
When we got to the rescue, the boston terrier had already been adopted. So I decided to check out the other dogs at the rescue and that’s how we spotted Toby. He seemed so sweet and let us hold him, resting his head on my shoulder. There was no way I was leaving him behind.
So Toby became part of the Moon family, thanks to help from Petfinder. It’s been quite the ride with him at times, but he will always be my first baby! Now that he’s almost ten years old, I can’t imagine our lives without him.
