Blossom Finds Her New Forever Home


What a sweetie! Blossom is an absolutely adorable three year old Australian Shepherd / Sheltie mix!

She was brought into the Orange County Animal Care Center (a high-kill shelter in Orange, CA), along with her one year old son. She had a litter of puppies and her owner kept her and her last puppy alone in the backyard for the entire year. Then both dogs were turned into the shelter. Her puppy got adopted right away, but Blossom was so shy, the shelter wasn't even sure if she was going to be able to be adopted. Ariel Rescue saw that Blossom needed help!

Blossom was adopted out of the shelter by one of Ariel Rescue's volunteers. Then she was taken to the vet for an exam. She was fostered in an Ariel Rescue volunteer's home, where she received her "beauty bath" and was given very nutritious food to eat. Blossom lived up to her name and "blossomed" into a brand new dog.

Blossom has now found her new forever home with a retired school teacher. Blossom spends her days taking walks to the park and cuddling up at the feet of her new "mom" while her new mom reads at the park. Blossom never again has to be the lonely, scared, sad dog passed over at the shelter. Now she is the pampered, well-loved dog that she deserves to be.

Ask Ariel donates a portion of the profits from client purchases to Ariel Rescue, a non-profit charity dedicated to to saving the lives of shelter dogs.
