We live in a world of second chances, and third chances and fourth chances and sometimes more.
Hawkeye, above, seemed down to his last second chance when Teresa offered to work with him. Teresa is a talented trainer and she accomplished miracles with this troubled dog. Hawkeye received plenty of exercise with Teresa and plenty of behavior lessons. Hawkeye is now in his new home and doing well. He adores his human who returns the feeling.
Jake is a lively youngster whose come back from a couple adoptions for being what he is -- a very active youngster. Fortunately, he's going to a new home with people who specifically asked for an active dog. Fingers crossed. Here's Jake:
Sheila is a Miniature Australian Shepherd who ended up in a local shelter frightened and sick. She was heartworm positive and infested with fleas, ticks and intestinal worms. She's better now. No fleas or ticks. No intestinal worm. And she's no longer shy. This weekend she will go home with new owners who will keep tender eyes on her while she goes through treatment for heart worms.
Earlier this week one of our vets called to see if we would take a 10 year old poodle who had brought him in to be euthanized because his new wife didn't want the dog. We said yes, and he'll be available soon.
Brand and Peaches needed new homes because their owner was very ill. Molly also lost her home to illness. All have found new homes. Here's Molly.
We also agreed to take in a pair of senior minpins whose owner died. And we took in four shelties and two dachshunds (all seniors or nearly seniors). All are now ready for their second chance -- this one really a first chance at being a pet.
And the list goes on.
I'm answering a lot of calls and emails this week from people who say they're coming to our adoption events this weekend. Might be busy.
