That's Adalyn up there. She's definitely a grey muzzle dog. She's not young, not even particularly pretty, but Sunday someone picked her. Adalyn is now adopted, and the first thing her new person bought her was an orthopedic bed. She'll love that.
We just finished one of those weeks that should make us all cry a few happy tears. Adalyn wasn't the only older dog to find a home. Madge the senior golden mix, Duke the senior Great Dane and Juliette the senior poodle all went to their new homes.
Here's Madge. Notice her grey/white muzzle.
And here's Juliette. She was a real mess when she came to us. She needed two surgeries and extensive dental. But she's happy now.
And here's Chico, a 7 or 8 year old dog who's been waiting awhile. He found a home with some people who actually prefer dogs with underbites. Beauty is in the eyes.....and so on.
And if those weren't enough to cause a few misty eyes, we also said a happy goodby to Katerina and Phoenix, a couple puppymill survivors who needed a lot of help gaining enough confidence to take a chance on humans.
And we're waiting to hear about a possible adoption of Sugar, another of our favorite seniors. Of course, we had a few easy adoptions this past week too -- the young yorkie Windsor, the poodle Belle, the young cattle dog Vincent. And unfortunately, we had a few "returns" too --- dogs that had been previously adopted but were back with us for a variety of reasons.
But overall, the week our week was pretty unbelievable as well as proof that people will adopt older dogs and other less adoptable ones too.
Congratulations all....and here's more information about Sunday's winetasting. Come and enjoy.
Sounds like fun...and it'll help us help more dogs.
