What do you do when one pesky dog becomes the love of your life? You adopt it, of course.
Shea's Lounge is the story of Shea the Runaway. A female Border Collie Mix who spent two years living alone on mean streets. One day, while she was begging for food from the local fire station, Shea was captured and taken to the closest Shelter by a fireman who felt sorry for her and wanted her to find a real home. On the very first day she was available for adoption, a lonely man entered the shelter just to look around. When he heard Shea woof at him, It was love at first sight. Joe was told by the shelter that Shea was a runaway, but that idea didn't hit Joe until he brought her home. She quickly found a way out of his fenced yard and ran as fast as she could go. After several escapes and captures by the Shelter and by nearby neighbors, she found herself back in an alley staring at the garbage and the loneliness she had always known. Suddenly, Shea had an epiphany about the man who gave her his home. She remembered how his gentle touch made her feel and how his soft voice sounded to her and mostly how he always had a full bowl of food for her to eat at anytime. Shea suddenly knew what her instincts were telling her to do, and she ran as fast as she could go straight back to Joe's house and once there, she sat waiting for him to return home while sitting on his Lounge chair.
