It's been a long time in coming, but sometimes, good news makes you wait. After several false starts (applicants who backed out for personal reasons, landlord reasons, etc.), Maple was adopted by a couple in Chicago on Saturday, July 24th, 2010. Her initial rescuer, K., my young son, and I drove Maple into the city to meet her new family. They also have a male pit bull, now Maple's brother.
This picture was taken the day after I brought Maple to them. She looks so happy. :)
Her adoptive family changed her name to Mabel, got her a new pink collar, and enrolled her in training classes, all in under 24 hours of me dropping her off. I'm impressed with them and think that they are well-qualified to be Maple's new parents. They are into exercise, which Maple LOVES, are firm/assertive in giving commands, yet also snuggly and loving toward their dogs. I think Maple will thrive under this combination.
It's been almost three weeks now and things continue to go well. I don't know if I'll ever feel for sure/for sure, but I certainly hope this will remain Maple's forever loving home. She has been through a lot in her three short years on earth and deserves an easy road from here on out. I do miss her, but I know she's where she's supposed to be.
