“It is not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.”
~Henry David Thoreau
He was more than just adorable, Carolyn and Darcy felt deeply connected with him and started the adoption process.
After many emails and approval from C.A.R.E, Enzo was transported from Tennessee to Maine to his forever home with Carolyn and Darcy.
Carolyn and Darcy stayed in touch with the people from C.A.R.E and learned about Hughie on Facebook. Hughie had suffered terrible abuse, requiring around-the-clock nursing care. Again, it was not simply outraged against an animal terribly wronged or the adorable face of Hughie, it was more. It felt like someone had hurt THEIR dog.
Doesn’t he have the sweetest eyes?
A short time later, Hughie and a rescue worker were on a plane from Tennessee to Maine. Although somewhat shy around strangers, Hughie has recovered and is one very happy little dog!
His capacity to trust people shows the forgiving nature of dogs as well as the dedication of the people who rescued him.
I think that Enzo and Hughie are going to live happily ever after now that they’ve found their forever home!
As for Carolyn and Darcy, their words sum it up better than I could ever hope to: “Enzo and Hughie are the meaning of life to us. They remind us that the past is what it is, you cannot change it. But each day is ours to create, all we have is now. They make me laugh out loud, my heart swells from so much love I don’t know what to do with it… except grit my teeth & squeeze!”

Their story has me wondering how many people have fallen in love with their pet(s) online?
