INTO THE LOVING ARMS OF HER NEW DAD… Just this past week, Mira sat frantically crying at the front door of an open access shelter as her former dad walked out and left her behind… for the days to come, she cried and found it hard to eat. Mira’s heart was shattered into a million pieces. We at TAF knew that it would take a caring and gentle man to mend Mira’s emotional wounds and make her happy, again. Well, as fate would have it, that man was about to walk into Mira’s life and help to ease her pain and show her that she was loved. A while back, Mira’s new dad lost his senior pittie girl to cancer and the thought of bringing a new pup into his life was just too painful… after caring for his baby girl until the end, his heart was broken.
