Our Beautiful Victory!
Recently Doug and I traveled eleven hours to Grand Rapids, Michigan, to meet, adopt, and rescue little Victory from the Michigan Sheltie Rescue, Inc.! Doug and I were both a little nervous to meet Victory. I think that we have been anticipating this moment for several weeks and hoped that she would like us as much as we anticipated meeting her and making her part of our little family. Victory was such a beauty when we first saw her in person.
Victory is absolutely beautiful — she is a strawberry blonde color sable sheltie! She looks very regal. Victory is very, very sweet and very well-behaved. On Victory’s first night with us, she jumped into the bed and slept with us! Victory’s foster mom, Karen, via the Michigan Sheltie Rescue, Inc., has done such a wonderful job with Victory since August after Victory was rescued from the horrible sheltie hording situation.
Victory is adjusting well. However, it will take some time to fully bond, as it took time for us to bond with our precious Biscuit after we rescued and brought him home. Victory is eating, drinking, and going potty. VIctory loves peanut butter and cooked chicken breast! Each day, she gets a little more comfortable. We all will have another adjustment as she will learn our new home when we return to Maryland. We are confident that she will adjust and fully bond with us in good time.
Also, little Victory is very swift on her feet — this girl can really run! Doug and I will be taking many runs and walks with little Victory! She has a beautiful smile and we feel very grateful and blessed that Victory has entered our lives in Biscuit’s great honor. Within time, Victory will quickly learn that she is a little princess who will run our home! Please stay tuned for our wonderful adventures with little Victory!
Pictured below are photographs of Victory from this past weekend when we first met her. Victory is pictured next to her foster brothers, Wrigley and Brady, both collies.
