We were beginning to worry about Braun. In spite of being pretty darn cute, he wasn't finding a home. Maybe his basic shyness hid his whimsical personality. Many months after coming to us after the shut down of one of Missouri's largest puppymills, Braun still waited.
Then finally, someone saw the real Braun and invited him home. In fact, Braun's new human first met him a week ago, thought about him all week, and came Saturday to adopt him. We've already heard things are going well.
We might have called it "Shy Dog Weekend." In addition to Braun, two other shy dogs found a home together. Dolly the Miniature Pinscher and Danny the 4 lb Toy Fox Terrier had grown to depend on each other in their shared foster home. Chad and Charlotte couldn't decide which one to adopt, so they settled on both of them. This is Dolly below.
Others finding homes this week were Electra and Clarabelle, the Australian Shepherd puppies; Mishu the Pekingese puppy, Dixey Ann the Maltese, Wheezie the Schnauzer, and Miss Gizzie the Pomeranian. Some young. Some old. Here's Wheezie.
In other activities, one adopted dog came back for not getting along with the family's other dog. Another is coming back because its owner is going into a nursing home. Yet another will go in for knee surgery tomorrow. The request to take in dogs come in every day.
We're hearing from people who say they are coming to our reunion September 11 (see above.) Can't wait to see some of our former foster dogs.
