Photo update from adopter of Machiko, re-named Iris.
Machiko was named after the Japanese dog, Hachiko.
Machiko was left behind by her humans who moved again. She was cared for by neighbours while she waited for the door to her home to open to let her in. Unfortunately her life was endangered by complaints of the “mess” in the corridor, to the town council.
She was taken in by Metta Cats/Dogs Shelter where she was adopted by Cherlyn Ng and her hubby in 2011
She now lives in New York with her humans.
