Story submitted 2011-06-29
Heidi Ho Ho has come a lot further than from South Carolina to Toronto, Canada.

Abandoned on a lonely country road, cold, hungry, feet bleeding from dragging herself over the rough ground, today Heidi Ho Ho rides in style in her "Pink Cadillac". Her story is a true Cinderella tail with a DRNA fairy godmother, a pink coach to ride in and a doxie Prince Charming to love and protect her.

Heidi's back injury pre-dates her rescue story. When she was not claimed, the shelter wanted to kill her: after all, no one would want a paralyzed dog. Enter a DRNA fairy godmother who recognized that Heidi was a special girl, not just a special needs girl. She fostered Heidi, knowing it could take up to a year to find the right home for her. Seven months later, volunteers helped to transport Heidi to her forever home where she met and immediately bonded with her Prince Charming, Valentin, another rescued doxie.

Heidi Ho Ho, Valentin and I cannot thank DRNA and their supporters enough for all that went into bringing this darling girl into our family. And they all lived happily ever after...
