"I adopted April (renamed Kyri) from Irving Animal Shelter.

"She had flea dermititis, heartworm, missing and broken front teeth. Due to her health, she was at risk for being euthanized. When we got her home, she did a lot of sleeping, but with a little TLC, she began to blossom!

"She loves to play with her stuffed leopard, hide her rawhide bones and take walks to the lake.

"Ky-ky, as we call her, has been such a blessing to our family, she is so sweet and gentle with our children and such a loyal soul. We love Kyri deeply and are so grateful to the people of the Irving Animal Shelter for bring Kyri together with our family!

"Thank you!!!"
