When Lizzie the dog first arrived at the Animal Rescue League of Iowa she was suffering with itchy skin, oozing sores, and painful infections in both ears. Her lovely tan and white coat was patchy with hair loss.
Thanks to the ARL team and a pup-loving couple named Conner and Alison, Lizzie’s life has been completely transformed!
Just a few short weeks after she was abandoned at the shelter, she served as “ring-bearer” during Conner’s proposal and became their new forever fur-kid!
According to the ARL Facebook page, the couple had been discussing adopting a new dog. Conner contacted the shelter to see if they could help him find the perfect rescue pup and plan the perfect proposal for Alison.
The staff recommended sweet Lizzie as a match for the fun-loving young couple and their pooch. Conner instantly knew she was perfect!
When the big day arrived, Conner brought Alison to the shelter to “look at dogs.” As soon as she spotted Lizzie, Alison felt a connection and asked to meet her. As she rubbed the pup’s newly healthy coat, Alison discovered the engagement ring on a paw print ribbon around Lizzie’s neck.
She immediately said yes to becoming Conner’s wife and Lizzie’s fur-mama!
A few days later, Alison shared the following photo with her new friends at the ARL, writing:
“Thank you all for helping make it the most perfect day! Lizzie is the sweetest pup and the perfect fit for our family!”
Congratulations Conner, Alison and Lizzie! We wish you all the love and happiness in the world!
