Melody, an 8-month-old pup, came to the shelter with 18 of her pals after a July 2 house fire.
“This sweet girl is an old soul who just wants to be loved and feel secure after her ordeal,” says Elisha in a press release. Melody was scared when she arrived, but Elisha says the dog touched employees hearts by appearing trusting and lovey.
