Michael Schofield would soon be driving Lindy and 14 other dogs up north to the Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons in New York. "Oh, she's a hugger," Patsy said warmly. Lindy, a former short-term resident of the Walter M. Crowe Animal Shelter, loves to be held and snuggled. As a first time foster Mom, the experience couldn't have been any better or more ...
