Zuriel On The Day He Found His New Family!

Lens And Leash: How old was Zuriel when you adopted him and do you know anything about his life before you adopted him?

Jennifer DeFalco: He was 9 months old and he was neglected as the family didn’t have time for him. He was really skinny but so happy – all the time!

Lens And Leash: What made you decide to adopt Zuriel specifically?

Jennifer DeFalco: My daughter looked online and saw him and immediately fell in love.

Lens And Leash: What is your favorite quirk about Zuriel?

Jennifer DeFalco: His dopey tooth and tongue (he has a crooked face) 🙂

Lens And Leash: Did you have to do any training with him after you adopted him?

Jennifer DeFalco: We did puppy training through the humane society.

Lens And Leash: What tips or pieces of advice would you offer to people that are looking to adopt for the first time?

Jennifer DeFalco: Be sure you are ready for a life change – they are not just a “pet,” they are family!

Lens And Leash: Would you adopt again and would you adopt from the same shelter/rescue?

Jennifer DeFalco: Absolutely!
