Heidi (FKA Jo Jo)Posted: Wed, 2016-06-01 00:00
We wanted to give a update on our dog Heidi, formerly known as Jo Jo, who we adopted in April 2014. When we first adopted Heidi, she was very shy around people and canines alike but obedience classes and regular trips to the dog park helped her to adjust to her new surroundings. Heidi is a very affection girl and loves to play. Some of her favorite things include walks in the city, car rides, playing with her buddies at the dog park, string cheese, playing hide and seek and distracting her doggie friends to steal their toys. She has responded well to training, obeying basic commands and performing several tricks such as 'roll over' and 'high five'. This summer we took Heidi on the trip of her lifetime driving out to Jim's hometown in Northern Minnesota. Heidi was so excited to join us on this 3 day trek across part of the country. Once we finally arrived, she met her best friend Claire, a German shepherd rescue and new member of Jim's parents' family. Heidi and Claire played for a week straight running around together and swimming in the lake. Heidi realized that although shes a good swimmer, she wasn't a huge fan of the water. Luckily Claire was there to cheer her on and encourage her!
Heidi has brought a tremendous amount of joy to our lives. She is an amazing companion to Jim and I. We look forward to what our future holds with Heidi by our side. Without MAGSR we would not have met this wonderful bundle of love. Thank you to the wonderful people at MAGSR and all you do for these dogs amd their families
Jim, Cecilia and Heidi
