Well, she took off yesterday morning and made it part way home and then got to spend her first night in a motel room ... She has safely arrived in her new home...
This is one of those flights that will leave chills... The adoptive Mom wanted this girl last November, but they were in the middle of adopting a different bloodhound.....
Savannah has been in 4 different homes, getting returned within days of not working out.
I called the adoptive Dad last week... to see what their situation was and if there other bloodhound they adopted and was flown on PNP was ready for a sister..
Kevin then informs me that his wife was diagnosed with a brain tumor... it is terminal.. but it would help the family so much to rehab Savannah... to leave them with a piece of Diane... GOD BLESS this FAMILY, Steve the pilot for going out of his way to make this happen on very short notice...
Thanks everyone for making this happen for Savannah
