Red face Hello from Paris, France!

Hello!

My name is Adelie and I moved to Paris at the start of the new year from the southern United States. I grew up with three dogs. Our two boys passed away last year from old age, but our seven year-old Blue Heeler/Foxhound mix is still happy and healthy, living with my family and our cat back in the states.

I'm living on my own now, away from canine companionship for the first time in my life, and quite frankly, it's been heartbreaking. I considered adoption for most of January and... now it's time! I will be adopting two dogs from an animal rescue in Spain: a female Wire Fox Terrier mix and a male Jack Russell Terrier mix. I am meeting them and bringing them home next weekend!

I am excited to have found this forum and look forward to discussing with y'all!

Hey Judy!

I have been settling in well! Thank you for asking. I wasn't sure how much I would enjoy city life since I'm used to the suburbs/rural farm land, but I actually love it. I live next to the Cimetière Père-Lachaise, where Jim Morrison and a bunch of other dead people are buried. I haven't been to the Sacre Coeur yet... Still so much to explore!

I'm sure Paris will feel even more like home once I have the dogs!

Hello and welcome. What an exciting time for you.. We adopted a street boy from Romania so understand some of the problems you may face..these street dogs adapt so easily to the rug in front of the fire you think they had had it all their lives ��. Cant wait for pictures , Beth x
