A group of dogs arrived at Little Guild in West Cornwall, CT from the overcrowded animal shelter in Habersham County, Georgia, and one dog in particular stood out. Shelter staff immediately realized that Jody was special, and speaking with the Habersham County shelter manager, they learned that everyone in Georgia thought so too.
“Jody means a lot to the staff and volunteers at their shelter,” Little Guild worker Kelsey Turick told The Dodo. When the aid workers heard that we were taking Jodi in and finding her a home, they cried!”. Jodi was placed in a Georgia shelter after spending seven years with her family. When she arrived at Little Guild, the staff who greeted her realized that she was nervous and did not understand what was happening to her or where her family had gone.
Since then, Jodi has adapted better to her new environment and has bonded with staff and volunteers. She learned to trust her new friends, which brought out her great personality and made everyone fall in love with her even more.
“She has great communication skills and always wants to be around people,” Tulik says. She likes to play ball outside, but she also likes to snuggle up under the sheets with you. She is older, but she still has lots of energy and enjoys her daily walks. She is a very special girl and she means a lot to us.”
The fact that she hasn’t been adopted yet is a wonderful thing, especially since she would be very comfortable in almost any home. She adores dogs, cats and children and only asks to be with the people she loves when she has the chance. She’s already up for adoption and has a family that wants to come meet her, so hopefully her time waiting for a family will be over soon. The right family for Jodi does exist somewhere and all of her friends, both in Connecticut and Georgia, are eager to find her.
