I felt so at ease with LiLi staying with Dawn and Spike! Dawn sent pics of LiLi and I could tell she was so happy. I know she loved her stay!

Dawn is a very special friend and an incredible pet person. She adopted Spike in March, 2017, and in a short time transformed him into an obedient, eager to please companion.
