Jerri McCutcheon said goodbye to her Chihuahua/Pomeranian mix, Brandi, in May of 2016. Brandi was 11 years old had had been Jerri’s best friend. At 73, Jerri just wasn’t ready to start all over again with a new puppy. They need a lot of time and attention, and the thought alone was just exhausting. But Jerri’s granddaughter could see the change in her grandmother. There was a hole in the woman’s heart and home, and she was determined to fix it.
She was the little Chihuahua, Minnie, at the The Humane Society of Western Montana and decided to take a chance. The pair had an instant connection.
She brings back that presence in my home I didn’t recognize was gone. Now the house doesn’t feel as empty. I haven’t had anyone to talk to. It was a void and she has filled that.” Jerri said.
The 3.9 pound dog was just as excited to meet Jerri.
This little girl is starved for love and I’ve got it to give. When I take them, I take them for life. She’s probably the most loving dog, and I’ve had several. We’re going through some learning processes but that’s what makes it work.”
After just a week, the new family had found a rhythm.
She’s just skipping around, And she’s claimed the couch. It used to be mine, but it’s hers now.”
Thousands of people have fallen in love with the story, and the Humane Society hopes that the story will inspire others to adopt new dogs as well.
