Rocha (formerly Cassie)

"I adopted a little pit mix girl named Cassie by the shelter. Her name is now Rocha (like Almond Rocha candy since that's what her brindle coloring reminded me of). She was on death row. I was online earlier that day looking for a pup to adopt when her darling little face popped up with 'urgent' flashing on the screen.

"I lived in Denton at the time and was very new to Texas. I hightailed it to Irving and adopted this little girl just 15 minutes before closing time and what would have been her sad fate.

"She has been a truly wonderful addition to our family! She was diagnosed at around one-year-old with severe hip displasia, but we keep her sound and with the right activities and supplements. I am very happy and proud to say she is a very happy, healthy, spoiled three-year-old now.

"We love her so so so very much. Thank you Irving Animal Shelter!"
