Tristan arrived at the Animal Rescue League of Iowa hoping to adopt a cuddly puppy. Instead, he fell in love with Shey, a 14-year-old miniature poodle who had been abandoned by his family. Tristan didn't care that Shey was nearly toothless, partially blind, and deaf. He decided to adopt him and give him the special care he needed.
Shey was incredibly happy with his new family, and they shared a special bond until Shey's last days. This story highlights the importance of pet adoption and the love and joy that older dogs can bring to a family.
