Ichi’s story begins with two broken hearts.
Ichi, an adult female Sheba Inu, had lived her entire life with a single owner who loved her very much. But because of a major surgery and financial considerations, Ichi’s owner needed to find her a new forever home and contacted AALOC for help in placing Ichi with just the right new owner.
Jeff owned and loved a Sheba Inu with his whole heart but had lost his dog about a year ago to old age. The Sheba Inu breed rarely shows up in shelters or rescues so even though Jeff looked and looked he could not find another Sheba to adopt. It was kismet that a friend spotted the Facebook post about Ichi and connected Jeff to AALOC. Jeff jumped at the chance of adopting Ichi and soon thereafter Ichi came to live with Jeff.
It’s never easy to give up your beloved pet but knowing Ichi will be loved and cared for the rest of her life makes the pain just a bit more bearable.
Thank you Jeff for waiting for Ichi to become your new soul mate.
