Khristina was volunteering at a domestic abuse shelter when she got a call from a woman who was desperate for help. Her abusive partner bought two puppies as an “I’m sorry” gift for his behavior. He then threatened to harm the dogs during one of his tirades. The woman wanted the puppies to be rehomed immediately in order to protect them.


Coincidentally, Khristina had been looking to adopt a dog for several months and asked if they could meet in person. The night before, Khristina had a vivid dream where she and a dog spent their lives together. The next day, when Khristina met Luna, the puppy jumped right into her arms. It was then they became “two halves of the same soul.”


Luna is a beautiful girl with a giant puppy heart. She can sense when her mom is in distress. Even if Khristina gasps during a movie, Luna is right there to give her kisses. She’s also deeply bonded to Khristina’s son as well as their other farm animals. She is the first one to greet them, sit beside them, and talk to them. You have to see Luna with her animal buddies. It’s too precious for words!


Khristina says Luna is “the most loving, protective, and loyal friend.” We are so grateful that Luna’s first owner got the help she and Luna needed. To see one of our favorite stories to date, watch the video below!
