Meet Meri, our newly adopted family member. My husband,
Chuck, fell in love with this sweet pit bull earlier this year when he met her
at an event. Then, during our Wine, Washes and Wagging Tails fundraiser for the
Evergreen Animal Protective League (check out our Facebook page for adorable
photos), he met her again and this time she was ready to be adopted. Jackie
Bell, the founder of the EAPL, was giving her a foster home but, with too many
dogs in the house, it was time to find Meri a forever home.
Meri had a horrific beginning, suffering terrible injuries –
broken hips, legs and jaw. She was found with wire wrapped around her mouth
that left her with the scars you see on her nose. The astounding thing is, not
only did she survive awful abuse, but she is the sweetest, most loving,
accepting, happy dog you could ever meet. She is the most popular animal
wherever she goes and people go out of their way to say hello and pet her. She
will be going to work every day with Chuck at his State Farm office up on
Hilltop in Evergreen. And, already, they are inseparable!
We think Meri certainly exemplifies the TallGrass mission
statement to “Awe and Inspire” because of her positive, loving spirit. And, we
are blessed to have her as part of our family!
