We took a big leap when we adopted Rita. It was love at first sight. She was a scared soul that had a heartbreaking first year of life. We wanted to love on her, but she had never been loved and didn’t know what to do. We learned about ourselves and patience as she grew confident and began to accept our affection. It has been the most rewarding journey growing together. Rita has changed a lot in the four and a half years that she has been with us. So much trust has been built between her and our family. While she wouldn’t let us get too close at first she now loves to cuddle and present her stomach for belly rubs. She loves us and has the world’s best smile. She puts up with her chihuahua brothers and is a well-rounded dog that is loved by everyone that meets her. She loves her human brothers and loves nothing more than playing catch with them. We are forever thankful to Megan and Underdogs for matching us with the best dog we never knew we needed. Thank you Underdogs for helping Rita and all of the other amazing dogs out there who need a forever home!
