She’s a large dog – a wirehaired pointing Griffon – and she loves snow, Kay has been adopted by her new parents, Robert and Nancy Leefe. Now she gets to play in snow as much as she can. But it wasn’t always special fun and good times for Kay.
Upon her arrival at the ASPCA Adoption Center in 2012, Kay was sick from an infestation of heartworm. The ASPCA set her up with treatment immediately but reacted poorly to the first treatment and became seriously ill. She suffered a lot during those early days but, slowly, Kay gained her foothold on life and recovered completely. Kay’s luck changed to great when the Leefe family in Massachusetts adopted her
"We fell in love with Kay the moment we saw her picture and read her bio," Leefe says. "Our decision to adopt Kay just felt right and we couldn't get to Manhattan quick enough."
Kay’s new parents soon moved to a wonderful homestead with plenty of acreage in Vermont where she can romp and play and make snow angels. She is thriving there with her dog brother, Gus.
The two dog friends meandered often through the adjoining woods, exploring, running and sniffing. Both dogs are filled with enthusiasm and joy of life, hiking in the woods, prancing on the trails, and bouncing over snow drifts. Both Kay and Gus enjoy their doggy neighbor – Spencer the golden retriever, too.
Apparently, Kay wasn’t too sure about winter storms in Vermont since the wind was fierce and snow came down in a whiteout. But that’s now in her distant past – she loves the white stuff.
Leefe says, “She never tires of getting love pats, eating yummy treats after playing outside, and going for walks. We can’t imagine a better place for Kay to call home.”
Another happy dog finds a forever home . . .
