It was a happy day at the Humane Society of the Delta when this Alabama family drove to Helena to adopt a dog. Brandon and Becky Baughman were looking for a dog when they found Twix on the Petfinder website. Becky wanted a small dog and Brandon wanted a large dog. They decided to compromise on Twix, a female mountain cur/dachshund mix who has been at the shelter for several months.


The family came to Helena last Saturday to pick up their new family member. Brandon had just returned from overseas deployment with the Alabama Air National Guard three days earlier, but the entire Baugman family wasted no time driving from Auburn to meet Twix.
