Funnily enough, Lerch had actually driven his motorcycle to meet Julep, just in case he decided not to take her.
"He hedged his bets a little," Williams said. "I think he wanted to be able to say, 'I can't take Julep right now. I've got my motorcycle. If I'm interested, I'll come back.' But he knew pretty quickly that this was the dog for him, so he went right home, parked his motorcycle, got in his car and came back."
An hour later, Julep went home with her new dad. Now the pair is loving every minute together.
