Aspen went to her forever home with Old Dog Home, a beautiful rescue with an amazing woman running this organization.
Aspen has a huge yard that she can safely explore without a leash -- she was instantly on a sniffing adventure with her tail wagging. She sniffed, rolled, ran, pranced.
Then she met her pack (about 10 dogs) -- she was a little overwhelmed, but then the chihuahua "welcoming team" showed her the way and she was off and running again.
I've never seen her so animated so quickly. It makes my heart so happy for her.
