When we were debating whether to adopt Drakkar in July (we were told of his condition prior), I found this website with all of the positive and supportive members. So, while we knew it would be an expensive and challenging relationship, my husband and I did go ahead and adopt Drakkar. We have had our ups and downs…and probably more to come….but we would not change our decision for anything. This “dog” has become the center of our lives, and the best friend we could hope for. We have given him a second chance, but he has given us so much more. Thank you all for the advice and support for us “newbies to EPI”!
