Sugar was brought to The Animal Orphanage of Voorhees NJ as a stray. When our shelter director saw her, she instantly fell in love with this emaciated Pit-bull with big brown eyes, who was full of love. True to her personality she was named Sugar. It was a day before Christmas in 2011 when Sugar had a prolapsed rectum. When I saw Sugar for the first time, she was just out of surgery but she still managed to give me a tail wag and she looked straight into my eyes. Over the next few months Sugar recovered under the loving care of the shelter staff. At the shelter she spent time in the Directors office, on weekends she came home with me. She put on weight, was selected to attend a training class and learnt all her basic commands. In the class, she was always the teachers’ favorite and why not, she was the most obedient student! Sugar was very reactive to other dogs in the beginning but eventually she was introduced to play groups at the shelter. Sheldon and Kane were her shelter buddies. When I saw Kane and Sugar together, I always thought they supported each other in ways we humans could never understand. Finally the day came when Sugar found her forever family and everyone at the shelter said their goodbye’s in the midst of tears of joy! Her parents love their ‘daughter’ to pieces! She has 2 big brothers who watch over her like hawks. From an emaciated stray, a shelter favorite and finally a loving family member Sugar came a long way. Sugar's passion is to please her human companion and she continues to spread her love! Sugar taught me about courage, love, hope and forgiveness. Sugar is an example that second chances save lives!
