I adopted Sydney in December 2013 after I fostered her for a year from It’s the Pits Dog Rescue in San Diego. She was adopted out once as a pup and brought back to It’s the Pits at 10 months old, this is when I began fostering her. She was adopted out once while in my care and the lady brought her back within 24 hours. Not nearly enough time for her to adjust. Her loss, my gain. Sydney has a funny personality, but scares most people with her loud barking. I just tell them she is my guard dog :). We have been through many ups and downs. We drove (my daughter and I) from Southern California to Kentucky in 2 and a half days in June 2014. She did really well, but was not wanting to get back in the van near the end of the trip. I can’t blame her. We also traveled with 2 cats and Heidi, our Shih Tzu. The photo is Sydney in her new yard in Kentucky.
