A life can turn around so quickly and sometimes in interesting ways.
Jackson, abover, was out in a local animal shelter only a day away from possible euthanasia when we took him in. He soon found many admirers who found him to be the almost perfect lab. Even though he is a black dog and conventional wisdom says black dogs are hard to place, Jackson easily found a new home and even has a waiting list should his adoption not work out.
Roger (the dog I want to be more like) and Alana both came from a shelter that uses a gas chamber to euthanize unwanted pet. Both are now in great new homes .
BeeBee the chihuahua lived in someone's basement for several years having litter after litter of puppies. She's now in a home with a couple who are raving about her even though she still is a little shy and not entirely housebroken. Here's BeeBee.
And who would have thought that Marley Sue, the 12 year old yellow lab, would so easily find a home. Not too long ago Marley Sue was abandoned in a trailer court when her owners moved away. She will now be a companion for VeVe, a shy Aussie mix we placed several years ago. Here's Marley Sue.
Last time I wrote about Arrow, the Boxer puppy with the heart condition. We've now scheduled his surgery for April 16 after receiving eough grants and donations to cover the cost. Not only that, Arrow already has a potential new home.
And the sick puppy whose owners had abandoned him at a vet office is now out of the hospital and doing fine. We'll let her rest and eat well for awhile, but it won't be long before Sienna will be ready to meet new people.
This week we're taking in several dogs from a breeder who has decided she wants to start retiring her dogs when they are still young enough to spend most of their lives as pets. I like that idea.
And another new dog coming along is a Pointer mix whose elderly owners both died within a month of each other. A nurse promised the man before he died that she would find a home for the dogs. She comes our way today.
We'll have two adoption events this weekend.
