In Nov 2004, Melissa went to the Richmond SPCA where she found Angel. Angel was a very scared and shut-down 11 month old yellow lab/shepherd mix.
Upon meeting, Angel timidly sat in her lap and they bonded instantly. Angel became Melissa's best friend and shadow from that moment forward. Melissa didn’t realize Angel had never been properly socialized and as a result was dangerously fear aggressive.
Discovering this led her into a world of training and rehabilitation. If Melissa was going to save her dog, she had a lot to learn. She hired trainers and read everything she could.
Angel taught her so much about who she was and what was important. Angel was Melissa's best friend for almost 15 years and there will never be another like her. Angel will be in our hearts forever.
