ASPCA Happy Tails: An A-List Adoption

With the Academy Awards just around the corner, we thought this was the perfect time to catch up with one of our favorite four-legged starlets, Jennifer Lawrence. A one-year-old terrier mix, Jennifer was adopted from the ASPCA in mid-January. We caught up with her new mom, Sarah, to find out how the once-abandoned dog is adjusting to her new life as a leading lady.

Before adopting Jennifer, Sarah recalls that she “wanted a dog for quite a while.” In fact, she visited the ASPCA Adoption Center several times in search of a pup. Though she met many wonderful dogs, Sarah wanted to wait until she found the perfect fit. That’s when she met Jennifer.  She says, “The first time I saw Jenn, I was drawn to how relaxed and calm she seemed as she watched the passersby. It was as if she knew that she would find a home, and so felt patient enough to wait.”

In fact, Jennifer’s patience is a testament to all that she’s been through. In late December, the ASPCA rescued her after she was found abandoned in East Harlem, New York. Though she had been tied to a newsstand and left for dead, Jennifer’s calm demeanor never wavered. Like in the shelter, she never seemed to doubt that her rescue would come.

After the adoption, Sarah worked with one of the ASPCA’s Animal Behaviorists to tackle Jennifer’s separation anxiety—an understandable side effect of her past abandonment. Fortunately, she’s a fast learner, and Sarah tells us that “she has improved so much and is loving life.”

We always knew that Jennifer was a star in the making, and we are so glad to hear she’s getting the love she deserves. She definitely wins the award for “Happiest Tail” of the week!

To send us your own Happy Tail, email your story to happytails@aspca.org and we might feature it on the blog!
