She had a wonderful trip, thanks to the very experienced hands of all drivers. Thank you so much to driver and foster mom Catherine Traina; drivers Susan Herskowitz, Mark Musser, Carolyn Zimmer, Jason Bell, Lois Mark and Melanie de Mattia who is also Bandit’s new mom.

We have seen many wonderful pictures of Bandit since arriving to her forever home. She has a playmate, Zeus, and they are also getting on very well. Her first 2 weeks have been filled with playing with Zeus, camping, learning to swim in the river, sleeping in a tent and according to her new family – she is just perfect.
