Guess who got adopted!
Okay, I'll tell. Well for one, Margie the black lab/chesapeake bay retriever mix I wrote about yesterday found her new home. She's a gorgeous girl for sure, but I still think we set some kind of record for placing a big black dog....and to a great home too.
And Monte found a good home. He's the big brown dog I wrote about earlier in the week.
Anytime we find homes for a big black dog and a big brown dog on the same day, we're happy right there.
But it gets better.
Zsa Zsa and Eva (the picture is Eva) found their new home. What was special about their adoption is that these two little poodles found a home together. Foster mom Kim was hoping this would be possible; turns out it was.
And I placed my favorite senior girl Missy,...but not without incident. Missy is the 9-year-old sheltie mix rescued not too long ago from the Jefferson County shelter. i wrote about her a couple weeks ago. Her owner had died and she'd ended up alone and afraid. When police broke down the door to her home, she rushed out in a panic. Eventually neighbors recovered her and turned her in to the shelter, where we found her. Missy had just arrived at her new home today when something scared her and she bolted out of the car and then hid under it until I arrived on the scene to help. She was soon out and getting acquainted with the other dog, the back yard, her new house and her new humans. Her fears set aside, she soon seemed happy.
Barkley and Crackers are two mature yorkies who found their new homes today. Another senior dog, Willow, was also adopted. She's a shih tzu/ schnauzer mix and as cute as a puppy.
And speaking of puppies. We easily found a home for the cute little ball of fluff Nula, a shih tzu/poodle mix.
Skippy also found his home. Skippy is a black and white pup about five months old. If there was ever a pup who had "find me some children" written all over him, it's Skippy. And guess what, he's now got three of them, and their parents too.
