For the Love of Shelter Dogs*


A Few Adoptions

I wasn’t able to make it to the shelter for over a week, but I’ve been informed (via Internet) that a few of my favorite dogs have been adopted!

Craig was one one of the long-timers. He’d been at the shelter since maybe last July or August, and since he was super energetic and playful no one wanted to adopt him. He loved to run around and really enjoyed playing chase, especially when you wanted to put the leash on him. He was finally adopted last weekend!

Craig is a cute and happy Labrador Retriever mix. He is about one and a half years old, and he is nicely sized at about 25 - 30 pounds. Craig is very playful and fun. He likes to play with other dogs and he likes to meet new people. Craig will be neutered as part of his adoption fee.

Browny was also adopted. She’s such a sweet little girl who loves to be a lap dog. I saw her get surrendered a couple months ago because she’d just had a litter and her family couldn’t keep her (or the litter). She came in with her pups, and she finally found a home!

Browny is an adorable four year old shepherd mix. She weighs about 30 - 35 pounds. Browny is affectionate and gentle. She likes to be petted and snuggled by friendly people. Browny will be spayed as part of her adoption fee.

Darling was originally named Pucca (though I’m not sure why), but fortunately someone changed her name. She was really sweet, but I didn’t really know her until Caroline and I noticed she looked pregnant. We took her out to be sure, then called a vet tech to look at her. We really didn’t want to do this because the last dog I found that was pregnant ended up having her litter aborted (sad, but necessary because of all the dogs the shelter has). We didn’t want this to happen to Darling too, but we knew it was probably necessary. We asked the vet tech anyway, and she told us that they’d see how far along she was and how healthy she was, and then they’d make their decision. Well, Darling was missing from the adoption rooms for about a month, so I’m assuming they let her have her litter before they put her back up. Now she’s been adopted!

Darling is a pretty hound mix. She is about one and a half years old, and she weighs about 40 pounds. Darling is outgoing and likes to meet new people. She likes to go for walks and she tries to hold it until she can get out of her kennel. Darling will be spayed as part of her adoption fee.

Faulkner was another of my favorites, but he’s not listed online anymore. He was a big silly boy. He loved to play and loved to run around with his cagemate. He was adopted last Wednesday.

We pick up foster puppies tomorrow, if all goes according to plan. I’ll be sure to take pictures to post!
