'A Lid For Every Pot' - Stories of Love, Rescue, and the Road to Redemption

The touching story of two hearts finding and rescuing each other!

This is the true story about an "Angel" named Guiliana and her journey to her "forever home" and family!
Rescued by Angels Among Us Pet Rescue, most of her adorable brown and white siblings found forever homes in less than two weeks time. Guiliana was a playful and happy puppy who kept up with her seven brothers and sisters just fine. One of the cutest pups you'll ever see, feisty and sweet - but Guiliana had a secret.

You see, Guiliana was born with abnormal kidneys along with other problems but didn't know how to tell anyone. It took some time and a lot of tests but Angels' vetting team figured out this little girl needed help.

Thanks to Angels Among Us, she underwent special surgery to help her kidneys and bladder work better. Guiliana will always need to be on medications to help her stay healthy. We knew it would take a "special person" to adopt this dog.

By now, you know Guiliana is very lucky to be an Angels' pup. But you haven't heard the best part of her story...

One day, a young man showed his mom a cute picture of some puppies on the "Angels Among Us" Facebook page. One of those pups touched something in this lady named Glenda's heart so she decided to call to see if maybe she could come and meet her. Glenda wasn't really intending to adopt a dog at this point in her life, but she just couldn't get this 'special girl' out of her mind.

Well, you can probably imagine how that meeting went. There is a feeling fosters sometimes get when a pup has "found" his or her person...feels a lot like "magic"! That 'magic' was happening between Guiliana and Glenda.

Knowing all Guiliana has been through and might still possibly have to face, I spoke candidly with Glenda about whether this is what she really wanted. After all, this pup would always need special monitoring and medications to have a normal life. As I was explaining this to Glenda, she carefully listened, nodding her head with a little smile on her face. "I would understand if you can't do this," I said, "it's a lot to take on". After I finished, I asked her if she had any questions.

Glenda said, "Yes, I have a question. When can I take her home?"
For folks who might wonder where donations go to, it takes a lot of love, time, and, yes, funds to rescue any animal.  Even more so to help special dogs like Guiliana.

Thank you Angels Among Us for NEVER giving up on special cases like Guliana! She is a light, a love, a joy in the world and especially to her new owner, Glenda. And thanks to special people like Glenda who love unconditionally and understand how worth it this little pup is, and will be all of her life with her new family and forever home.

The fact is: Guliana has known it all along!  We believe sometimes that it is us who save them when, in fact, most of the time it is them who save each of us!

Aww, I love it! Esp., the any questions. Nothing you could say was going to deter a match made from heaven. When the lid fits the pot, that's it. :-)
