True Story That Will Make You Cry 


We have to admit that the pet adoption story of Jade and her adopted family made us so sad ! so for anyone who has been thinking about adopting a pet, we think this story will help convince you. Introducing Jade

My husband met Jade when he mowed the lawns at a local shelter in the lovely Adelaide hills in South Australia. An 18 month-old Staffy cross, at the time, Jade had had a rough time of life to date. She was abused by her first owner and then hit by a car, which resulted in her front left leg being amputated. 


He and Jade were joined at the hip.She went to work with him every day and they became inseparable All the time.  when I came into my husband's life. Jade was around ten years of age. My prompt response, as was with a great many people on meeting her, I quickly learned that Jade was as agile and capable as any 'complete limbed' animal.My husband recalled stories of her running flat out and jumping into his arms and she would run at warp speed, using her stumped shoulder to turn 'on a dime'.

I came to acknowledge how strong the bond between man and his best friend was when my husband's work took him away for weeks at a time. Although Jade was an awesome ally to me, it was my husband that she truly wanted to be with. She would slump into a 'depressed' state and fret for him for days on end. On two events, she got it in her head to go and find him. You can envision how panicked I became, rallying the family together to search for her.

Luckily, she was discovered the multiple times. My better half would advise her before withdrawing for a little while... "presently you take care of my young lady, Jade", thus she did. She was my consistent buddy, my partner, my closest companion, defender and sharer of bed! (it's stunning how a much room a medium size pooch can take up!). 

Hours before my husband's come back from work, Jade would position herself on the front step and wait. She knew he was coming soon, and upon his arrival, would go 'nuts' with excitement.

A long time passed and Jade was fortunate to remain in good health, the only signs of aging being her white muzzle and a few harmless lumps and bumps. She was constantly a good sleeper, only now most of her day was spent snoozing. At the ripe old age of 20, our beautiful girl passed away.

She must be euthanized, and even at the end, it seemed she didn't want to leave my husband. The vet needed to manage two dosages of 'meds' to get her strong and beautiful heart to stop. We carried her home and lay with her on our bed for hours. I have never considered a to be as grief stricken as I did that day. And even now, two years on, a tear is shed for his cherished Jade. Generally, however, we are so grateful for having her in our lives. The unconditional love she gave knew no bounds.
