Meet sweet Lupita. I so love this girl. She has a beautiful smile, doesn't she? I first photographed her back in mid-January, and then she got caught up in a little scuffle during playgroup and ended up with stitches and several weeks recovering in the vet suite. Scuffle totally not her fault! She's back in adoptions now, so I wanted to get some fresh pictures of here. Alix and I had her outside for a while, and she is truly such a sweet girl.
As I was wrapping things up Tuesday afternoon, I ended up helping a family look at some dogs. They had come in with a picture pulled up on their phone and said the photo brought them in. It was my photo of Mr. Rodgers. They met Mr. Rodgers and then wanted to meet a few others they specifically picked out from the website, including Gwen and Indigo, and then I took the opportunity to introduce them to Lupita and Kahuna, both dogs who've been waiting quite some time for their forever family. They loved Lupita and Kahuna and then ultimately couldn't make up their minds! All the dogs I took out for them are still available on the website, so I'm hoping they at least came back and adopted a dog later in the week.
Seriously! Look at that sweet face up there! ^^^ When I was taking 'Pita back to her kennel after her meet and greet with this family, I promised I'd keep trying for her. She really is a love. Here's what the shelter says about her: "Lupita (also known as Pita) is a staff favorite here at the shelter. At 53 pounds she is all muscle, but she acts like she's all fluff. 'Pita knows how to sit and takes treats very gently. She can be protective of her people. Pretty Pita can sometimes be found in playgroups or even behind the front desk, where she shows off her good behavior to any customer who will pay her attention." She's available for adoptable at the City of Tallahassee Animal Service Center, 1125 Easterwood Drive, Tallahassee.
