WILMINGTON, Del. (FOX 29) - A dog who was found abandoned outside a Wilmington animal shelter with a heartbreaking note from her owner has finally found her forever home.
On Jan. 2, the female terrier mix named Sky was discovered outside the Delaware Humane Association, along with a note explaining that her owner became homeless and could no longer care for her.
The note said the 6-year-old dog was "not sick, just hungry," and asked the shelter to please take care of her. At the time, shelter Director Kerry Flanagan Bruni said Sky was about 20 pounds underweight.
Now, nearly two months later, Sky has been adopted.
"Her new parents Rachael and Wilbur saw she had been good with kids... and knew they had to meet her," the shelter wrote on Facebook.
The couple arranged a "dog meeting" with its DHA alumni, Jax, and the rest was history.
"Jax was a special needs dog with us, so the dedication and love they showed him let us know she couldn’t be going to a more perfect home," the shelter wrote. "Congratulations and the happiest of tails to Sky and her new family! This is truly the definition of “making friends for life!”
