Our handsome cover pittie, Lafayette, was at Metro Animal Care and Control for six months with no luck in finding a loving home. That’s when they teamed up with Williamson County Animal Center, who took him in to try their luck at finding a family for the sweet boy. Although he was adopted after 13 days, his new family had to bring him back when they realized that he and their current dog were not a good match. Photographer Penny Adams captured this charming shot of him shortly after returning to the shelter. Thankfully, he was adopted again nine days later—and as of the printing of this issue, was happy in his new home! You'll meet him on page 13 of this issue.
