Malibu Monday

Hey friends! Been a little while, I know. Life got insane for a second… and it’s about to get a whole lot more wild.

My heart grew by 78 pounds yesterday!

before she found out that she had a home! 

Meet my girl Malibu!

Malibu (Mali for short) is a 4 year old Great Pyrenees mix- likely with St. Bernard. She’s a big girl with a whole lot of fur! I rescued her yesterday from one of my favorite shelters, and could not be more excited to love this girl for the rest of her life.

Mali is adjusting well to her new home, but she’s a bit sad. The last few weeks have been rough for this girl. Her owner was killed by a drunk driver, and Mali and her brother were surrendered to the shelter. Mali loved her brother and was glued to his side, but unfortunately he was adopted without her a few days ago. Sweet pup is learning how to live and love independently now – but hey, so am I!!

So far her favorite things are naps and walks!

Here’s the best part: Malibu is my Service Dog In Training! Within a few months, she will be trained to help me with a multitude of tasks relating to chronic pain and also anxiety and panic. She’s going to save my life even more than I saved hers, for sure.

We are so excited to begin this journey and document it along the way!! I hope you come along for the ride to see this sweet girl from sad dog to service dog!

With all the love,

A
