If this video doesn’t make you cry tears of happiness, nothing will. Edie was so “aggressive” that she was put on a euthanasia list, and was rescued at the last hour. Only she wasn’t aggressive – she was absolutely petrified. She defecated on the floor when Eldad Hagar tried to connect with her, but completely melted as soon as he pulled her onto his lap for a hug. Now Edie has been adopted into a wonderful and loving home.
studied English and has a bachelor's degree in psychology, with a focus on animal behavior, neuropsychology, and psychotherapy. She shares two pit bulls (adopted from the SPCA Serving Erie County) with her family, as well as three adopted cats with her husband, Fred. She takes pride in being a grammar enthusiast and advocating for animals, the environment, equal rights, and humanitarianism. She loves camping, cooking, taking photos, listening to psychedelic rock and indie music, and making all sorts of crafty things - from charm bracelets and paper rose bouquets to kitty condos and feral cat houses!
