On Thursday, the beautiful German shepherd, formerly named "Kitzel," was adopted from the Los Angeles County Animal Care and Control facility in Baldwin Park, Calif.
With a great deal of networking help, and the assistance of several passionate rescuers, the eight-year-old dog was able to be put into the hands of her new guardian, who is a retired police K9 officer.
Kitzel is now known as "Miss Kitty," and her guardian, "Mary," is taking her home to live in Arizona. Mary fell instantly in love with the elderly dog - when she first met Kitty, Mary hugged her and asked her if she was ready to go home.
This is the type of rescue story that everyone dreams of for a homeless dog. Congratulations on your new, wonderful life Miss Kitty!
