New pets can take a little while to adjust to their new surroundings. Patience and perseverance can help!
This adoption story is about a dog whose transition to a new home started a little rocky, but now he’s doing very well. The 1-year-old French Spaniel we called Clyde came to Tri-County Humane Society in late December. By early January, he had a new family. He was renamed GusGus.
“Once we got the Lyme disease taken care of, he gained some weight and is more active now. He still is skittish with a lot of stuff, so we are working on things slowly. I have a chronic illness, so he makes sure I get up in the morning keeps me moving; yet when I do need to lay down and rest, he is right there beside me. He is such a good boy. I am glad we hung in there with it being a little ‘ruff’ at the beginning – GusGus was not good with our little dog and was afraid of my husband. The more we hung in there with him, the better things got. It took about a month for him to settle in with us. Him and our Shorkie are now best friends. … We are thrilled he is now a part of our family.”
“Patience and perseverance have a magical effect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish.” John Quincy Adams
