Adoptions!

Saturday at PetSmart, we had 12 dogs available for adoption, and too many cats to count.  The following dogs were adopted:

Rocky and Benson - the last two Poodle/Pug puppies finally found homes on Saturday!  Just in time - we have several more puppies coming in to our rescue this week, and will be trying to find homes for more puppies very soon!




Buddy - this cute puppy received a lot of interest, and may be going home this week after a home visit.  I hope he gets adopted quickly - he is like Ziggy, only much smaller and cuter and more well behaved.  Plus he's not deaf.  Ziggy doesn't have a chance of getting a home with Buddy around.  Although I bet Buddy can't do the Ziggy Dance! 

Buddy has a brother named Freckles that is still waiting for adoption.  Tomorrow I'm picking him up from the shelter where he's been living recently, and he'll be going into foster care with another foster family until he gets adopted. 


Casey - Casey was adopted!  A nice couple came up and visited with him, then left to go talk about it.  I didn't think they were coming back, but shortly before the event ended they returned with their son and their other dog.  And everything went very well, so they decided to adopt Casey.  I visited him in his new home on Sunday, and he seemed very happy. 


The other eight dogs that were there did not get adopted this weekend, but they'll be back next Saturday to try again.  Now that I'm back down to just one foster dog, I'm ready for another foster.  There is a purebred Great Dane at a local shelter that I may take home to foster if she is not adopted today.  Or there are some Corgi pups that I received an e-mail on, so I may be getting those.  And of course I have a constant list of other dogs waiting to come in, including one more deaf pit bull.  And with an upcoming visit to a shelter scheduled for later today, it will be a real challenge to only end up with one more foster dog instead of several.

Those puppy showcases are a great way to find furever homes. My momma tries not to go to the doggie store when they have the orphan dogs or kitties there because I would not take kindly to a new pal and she is very soft hearted. But kudos to all the little ones that did get new homes.

Slobbers,

We found Baily and BC at events like that (we went looking for Baily, stumbled onto BC). Mesa we went to the shelter to find. It was hard to walk out with just one :)

Yippee for new furever homes! News like this always makes my heart Most Glad! I can't believes Casey got adopted so very fast! Sometimes it's just a matter of the right human walking in at the right time - like what happened with me.

Exciting news that so many got furever homes. Did the Pug/Poodle litter mates get a home together?

Love,

The pug/poodle puppies were adopted by two different families. One puppy in a house is usually enough work, so we try not to adopt out two young puppies together. This is the opposite of kittens, where we like two kittens to go to the same home because they do better that way!

I love and am jealous of what you do!
Great that 1/3 of the dogs found new homes this weekend! :)

I am so happy for those who found loving forever homes and I hope the rest will find theirs very soon.

We are so happy for the pups who found wonderful forever homes, and we are sending lots of purrs for the ones who still need to find theirs. We hope it happens for them very soon!!

That is wonderful news! Dad doesn't let mom any were near those as he knows she can't be trusted not to come home with someone!

Wags!
