Sometimes we shake our heads and ask each other, "Why do we still have this dog?"
We're usually talking about a dog that should have been an easy adoption. People should have been competing to adopt such a great dog.
We always have some dogs that we know will be hard to place, either because of their age or because of their special needs. But those are not the dogs I'm writing about here.
I'm thinking about dogs like Luna, a young Akita. Lindsey, foster mom, said, "She is such a good girl. I just cant believe I still have her." Lindsey points out that Luna is completely housebroken and crate trained. She enjoys walks and she loves everyone she meets. "She's a real people dog."
In case you're looking for a great dog and would like to meet Luna, she'll be at the Kirkwood Petco, I-44 and Lindbergh, 11 to 3 Saturday.
Kevin is cute; he's low shedding and totally housebroken. He's small and he's young. He's playful and affectionate. He's a great family dog. I figured he'd be snapped up at his first adoption event. What's happening? Don't people know perfect when they see it? Kevin will be at the Kirkwood Petco 11 to 3 Saturday too.
Cody is a beagle/Australian shepherd mix....a wonderful dog by anybody's standards. So is Jester, a beagle mix who fits his name with his clownish ears and behavior. Both of these dogs would fit with most anyone but would be especially good with human senior citizens.
So why do we still have Cody and Jester? Beats me. People should be breaking down doors to meet these two. Both will be at the Arnold Petsmart on Jeffco Blvd. 11 to 3 Saturday.
