The shelter reached out to us knowing that a smart, energetic young girl like Olive would need a certain type of home and they felt we might be the ones to help her out. We said yes!

One thought on “Olive ~ Adopted!

  1. Shortly after moving into our home in Naples, I met one of our neighbors walking their collies. I commented on how beautiful they were. I told my neighbor, Robin, I was interested in adopting a Border Collie. She told me they had adopted one of their collies from TDL and how wonderful an organization they were. I researched TDL and then sent an email to Gisele inquiring about adopting a BC. Gisele responded quickly and said she would keep us in mind and that she had a pup coming in but wasn’t sure of its temperament . Four days later Gisele called me with news they had received a call to help find a home for a one year old BC out of Marathon. She sent me a picture of Olive. I loved the smile on Olive’s face. So I decided that Olive might be a great match. The following Wednesday Olive was driven to Naples, by Jerry Bartlett a volunteer, to begin a new life with my fiancé and I.

    We renamed Olive, Allie. Allie has been an absolute joy for us. She has adjusted to her new home and surroundings. It’s as though she has been with us her entire life. We just love her and feel very blessed that Gisele considered us to be Allie’s new parents. Words cannot express how happy we are to have Allie be part of our family. Thank you Gisele.
