Little Lu

Mom did some internet sleuthing this evening and found the original listing for my adoption! Mom is squealing about how friggin' cute I was (and, ahem, still am, right?)!!!  She forgot these pictures existed and is so super excited to have found them.

Shepherd Mix: An adopted dog in San Francisco, CA Meet LuLu, This great puppy has a had a rough start in life, after being abandoned at 4 weeks old she was turned to us and is now a happy and healthy 10 week old girl. Lulu is very sweet and so loving !!! She really enjoys time with her foster brother "stanly" and has the best time playing with her foster mom !! LuLu would be an amazing family dog, however we are asking that she goes to a home with children over 8 y/o. LuLu is current on vaccines and will be spayed as part of our adoption process... For more information on Lulu please contact us !!! Large • Baby • http://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/7180822

Me with my foster brother
When mom and I laid eyes on each other it was love at first sight.  I licked her face silly! And she gave me big hugs, which was challenging because I was a major wiggle worm back then.  Mom was told my back story; I was found in a box by a grocery store dumpster with my deceased sibling.  OOF.  Even though I know some humans can be bad, I had my faith restored by the WONDERFUL people who found and cared for me.  I am one lucky pooch!

I was officially adopted on November 20, 2006.  I was just about 12 weeks old when I arrived at my forever mom's home.  She sent out the following email and picture after our first week together.

Hey everyone!

I would like to introduce you to my newest addition, Lulu.  She is a 3 month old rescue dog, who is full of love and energy, and did I mention energy?  I've had her about a week and a half and we've already got potty training pretty much down.  She's also learned to sit, lay down, shake, and we're working on stay and come.  She's growing like a weed, and looks like she'll be between 60-80 lbs.  She's adorable, and you should all come by to meet her for some puppy love and kisses!

I hope this holiday season is treating you well.

Lots of love to you and yours,

Kira & Lulu

Awww.  (I never did get quite that big...but with my personality that's probably ok!)

Many thanks and lots of love to my foster family and Wonder Dog Rescue for taking such good care of me until I met my momma all those years ago!



  1. Omg! Sooooooooo cute!!

  2. Thanks, My-Ryan!!!! Love you oodles!

  3. Lulu that is a wonderful post. My mommy does not have any pictures from my earliest days. She thinks maybe she should ask the breeder. But face it, at 14 weeks old I was still a major cutie!!!
    I love adoption stories. My Mommy #1 was adopted from China, I was adopted from Yuba City, and so on. It is a wonderful way to create a family.
    Love Noodles
