The story of Lady D and Dominating
Lady D arrived at GPI on the February
(2/17/13) dog load from Florida. We call her Lady. She was
immediately everyone's favorite.
After her spay surgery and
dental Lady took a while to recover, but wormed her way into
everyone's heart. We set her up in one of our big runs (8’ X 12’).
We affectionately called it her penthouse suite! She had a raised
bed in there, a big round dog bed, and another overstuffed quilt
at the front of her run as she often liked to lie up against the
gate and watch all the activity happening around the kennel.
Volunteers would often
take her out into what we call our Adoption Center and spend time
with her. We would open up the toy box and she just loved it!!!
Her favorite thing was to pull a whole bunch of toys out of the
toy box and collect them on the beds as well as throw them around.
Here are a couple of
videos of Lady playing with the toys.
On March 23, 2013 another
beautiful lady by the name of Zora (Dominating Dodge) was turned
into GPI. Zora had originally been placed in a home in Atlanta,
GA. Over the next 7 years she would live in Georgia, Kentucky and
Idaho. In March 2013 her family felt they could no longer give her
the home she deserved and turned to GPI to help find her a new
We wound up turning Lady and Zora out
together for their daily turnouts and many folks commented on how
alike the two girls looked and how well they did together. We soon
realized that no wonder these two girls looked alike – they are
sisters!!! Lady D and Dominating Dodge - together again after all
those years. To both come through GPI for adoption is one thing,
but to come through GPI at the same time after being apart for so
long is truly amazing!!!! It was definitely meant to be.

These two beautiful ladies
are now together in a foster home and we were determined to find
their forever home together.
Their foster mom says that
these two are really a team. The easiest way to tell them apart is
Zora always has a stuffie in her mouth. She would eat with it in
her mouth if she could figure out how ;-) Zora is alpha and plays
a little rough but backs off with a verbal reminder.
Both girls have the dog
door down and love car rides (Lady needs help getting in) and
They are happy girls, tails always in motion.
They love romps in the
They are expert nappers (lots of practice)
They are very loving and are enjoying retirement to the fullest.
These girls are very
bonded and we want them both to go into the same home. Won’t you
give these two beautiful girls their forever homes! They are too
precious for words.
P.S. In the pictures, Lady is the one with
the pink collar and Zora is the one with the green collar.
