Meet this lovely Dalmatian/ pit bull mix dog named Valentine. Last year, she set foot inside her new loving home and was a little bit anxious about that new start.
“She was very timid when we first met her,” Ashley Moses, Valentine’s mom, told The Dodo. “She wasn’t opening up to us, and we couldn’t get a feel for her personality during our meet-and-greet with her. You could tell her spirit was crushed, and she looked so sad.”
Ashley and fiancé didn’t know how to react because Valentine was so nervous.
“From the moment I saw her picture, I knew she was our dog. It sounds cheesy, but it was love at first sight,” Moses said. “After we adopted her, we both opened up with the doubts we had about adopting her. Could we handle a dog like this? What if she never opened up? We’ve never rescued — what do we do with a scared dog?”
At first, dog was so scared and afraid of everything. But now Valentine has completely changed.
“She was 100 percent a different dog,” Moses said. “She was jumping, playing, kissing me and overall very excited … It was a crazy moment because we were not expecting her to open up so quickly!”
But Valentine’s parents have helped dog to feel better at new home and now she is completely happy.
“She is the happiest girl who loves to play with her toys, loves all food, and most of all, her family is her favorite thing,” Moses said. “She is the most expressive, funny dog ever. We’re so proud of all the progress she’s made … and we can’t wait to love her forever.”
