As many of you know, back in November I had to put my sweet Youri to sleep.
You can read about it HERE.
I adopted Youri from Lowcountry Animal Rescue. He had been neglected and abused all his life. He was 7 years old when I adopted him. He wasn't a dog that had a good chance of being adopted. Because of his medical and personality issues that he had from the abuse along with his age, he probably would have been euthanized if he had been sent to a kill shelter. For the time that Youri was in my life, he was worth every obstacle I had to overcome with his disabilities. I needed him just as much as he needed me.
