Aria is a Cocker Spaniel-English Setter mix, a dog that is supposed to be very good at hunting. This sweet girl, however, prefers to cuddle than chase prey. And so, her previous owner thought she was no good for anything, so she better die.
The dog’s owner decided to shot her dead. Thankfully, a local rescuer learned about her. He spoke with her owner and convinced him to relinquish her to him instead.
Aria arrived at Greek Animal Rescue, where she immediately began searching for a new home. She was in perfect health, got along with other rescue dogs, and befriended everyone she met. Her good demeanor was a clear indication that she’d find the perfect family soon.
A lovely couple who lost their 15-year-old spaniel, Millie, spent the last several months looking for a new rescue. When they heard about Aria, they read her profile and they instantly knew she’s the one.
The couple completed their application form and waited for the rescue group to respond. They were apprehensive at first because they knew the dog never spent a second inside a house and they weren’t sure she’d like it with them. But still, they wanted to have her.
It was a big surprise for the couple when they heard back from Greek Animal Rescue, and they were even more quite astonished when they learned their application to adopt Aria was approved. They couldn’t wait to be with her.
As the couple waited for Aria’s arrival, Wilf and Jasper, their two other dogs, got sick and quickly deteriorated. The brothers were always together so their parents had no choice but to let them go at the same time. It was devastating, but the new arrival made a huge difference.
When Aria finally came home, the couple knew right away that they made the best decision to adopt her. Within three days, she responded to her new name Hattie and learned how to go potty outside. She adjusted to her new life pretty quickly.
While Hattie felt very grateful for her new life, her new mom and dad couldn’t be any happier to have her in their lives. She brought so much joy to them since the first day and continues to give them a reason to wake up every morning.
