We had lost both of our dogs prior to our arrival to Copenhagen from the US.
Both were shelter dogs that we loved dearly and had for more than 10 years each. Both were diagnosed with different types of terminal cancer within the year of us moving.
We went through the adoption process and were happy to know that we were approved. We’re hoping more of her personality comes out with time, and that she becomes more playful, which we think she will.
We recall that it took about 6 months for each of our other dogs to really settle in
While losing them was very difficult for us and completely unexpected, the silver lining was that we knew we could rescue another dog after we got settled here in our new city.
