The first thing I thought of when I met our Dog Days guest, Amy, was that once trending song on Tiktok that says, "Hap, hap, Happy boy. He's a happy boy." If you need an example:

Amy, who is a 4 year old, mixed breed, medium sized dog, fits this bill perfectly. As soon as she was in our studio she was at my side in a flash to lean on me and request some pets. Now, 'medium' can be a relative term. Here are a couple of pictures to give you a better idea:

Amy was adopted as a puppy but, unfortunately, due to the owner's medical issues she had to be surrendered. So, if you can imagine, shelter life is very shocking for her. She's adapting well but definitely needs a new, forever home.

She's up to date on shots, spayed, and microchipped. Now, she's waiting for you! I mean...look at that face!

If you're interested in adopting this sweet angel, you can contact the SPCA of SW Michigan here. Remember, if you're leasing your residence you will need to bring a copy of your lease. And, if you have any other animals in the house the SPCA always recommends a meet and greet before adopting.

Can't adopt but still want to help? No problem! The SPCA of SW Michigan is always in need of volunteers or people who can foster animals currently in the shelter.

With fostering, you're not responsible for the cost of medical care or feeding. You're simply offering a reprieve from the shelter for this animal to relax and become more socialized which, in turn, makes them more adoptable. Find information on both fostering and volunteering here.

And, like I always say, if all you can do is share Amy's story with someone in your life that may adopt her or know someone else that will adopt her that is absolutely helpful and greatly appreciated.
