Tessa — Shelter

Location: Jacksonville, Florida

When I first saw Tessa, she was chained up on the side of the house, her owner had just passed away and the boyfriend wasn’t a big fan of dogs. She was eating food too big for her and she lost a tooth, she didn’t receive enough nutrition and her tail stopped growing. I wasn’t in the market for a dog but I couldn’t turn her away. She has been the most spoiled girl ever since but not only that she’s also expanded my social reach becase she’s such a social dog. I take her everywhere I can. She’s the best thing that’s ever happened to me and I think it’s safe to say I’m the best thing that’s happened to her.
