It has taken her a while to adjust to all the people and activity of a golf course life but she has made monumental strides. Here is her story as best as the shelter shared with me.
She was originally owned by a Chicago family that had to relocate out of state. They chose not to take her with them so they gave her to the shelter. Shortly after, a family with young children adopted her. As one would anticipate, Tu being a high energy and bred to be an outdoor working dog, was too high energy to be around young children. The young family took her back to the shelter. After a while, an elderly gentleman who had recently lost both his wife and his dog, adopted Tu. And again, as anticipated, she was too high energy to be shut up in a house all day without any exercise. The gentleman returned her to the shelter.
It has been an interesting 4 months with her. I never planned on having a 3rd dog at my house but there is no one at NCC for her to live with. It isn't convenient for my home but I will never return her to the shelter. She is attached to me and I am her new caretaker. She doesn't leave my side. She is at the course daily, running and chasing and is able to enjoy life outside of a rescue shelter cage.
