I saw this ad on craigslist today and thought that I'd post it in case anyone would be a good fit for this dog. She has such a sad story and it makes you yearn for her to be in a forever home. The original craigslist ad is http://southjersey.craigslist.org/pet/2846831753.html.

Darlynn's Story
Surrendered to the SPCA in FL 2007 when she was just 1-½ years old. The SPCA had her spayed & placed her up for adoption. A wonderful woman named Beth fell in love with her big brown eyes & crazy tail & gave her what was to be her "forever home". Beth loved Darlynn & Darlynn worshiped Beth. . . the pair even relocated to North Carolina so Beth could be closer to family. Beth & Darlynn lived a wonderfully happy, healthy, fulfilling life together for about 4 years. Unfortunately Beth developed early-onset Alzheimer's disease and, despite lots of effort at keeping them together, Beth's family eventually had to intervene & placed Beth in a full-time support facility -- one that didn't accept dogs (even cute funny ones that loved people & could bring therapeutic lovin's & kissin's to lonely folks!) They had to find another place for Darlynn. . . Fast-forward 500 miles North & Darlynn found herself in the warm care of her. . .step-brother? Yes, Beth's son drove all the way from NJ to NC to pickup Darlynn & bring her back to NJ to be fostered with 'family' until another "forever home" could be found for her. Today, Beth doesn't remember much, but she does remember that her "baby" is being well care for. That's where Darlynn's story is waiting to be finished. Miss Darlynn is comfortable in her foster home, but knows it's not "her home". She has to share the spotlight with 2 other (very bossy) dogs and 2 (count 'em -- TWO) stinky cats! Even though she secretly loves them all :) Darlynn remains positive every day & hopes that someone out there is able to give her the home & personal attention she misses. Darlynn cohabitates well with other animals. She loves being showered with attention (& clothes! What southern bell doesn't love new clothes?). Darlynn would thrive in a home where she is center of attention, but she also loves playtime with cats & other friendly dogs.

Checkout Darlynn's You . Tube channel. You'll find recent photos and video -- including funny play sessions with cats (hard to believe, but it's true!)
Just go to You / Tube and search for her nickname darlydew

Contact Darlynn via her fosterparents here on Craigslist or via her video channel.

For Darlynn's safety and well-being interested parties should expect to be interviewed and prepared to provide references.
