Last Saturday the rescue group I volunteer with had two puppies adopted (Freckles and Buddy). In the same day, we also took in ten new puppies, not including my two five-month-old foster pups. Sadly, there is no shortage of puppies needing homes in our area. On the plus side, this means I get to post lots of puppy pictures today!
This happy puppy is Daisy. At the same time as I was talking to Freckles' adopters about him, I noticed one of our other volunteers talking to a guy with another puppy. Next thing I knew, the guy was signing the puppy over to us. I didn't hear the whole story, but I am glad that one of our foster families was able to fit in this sweet girl and she'll never have to know what her life would have become if she'd ended up at a shelter.
The next nine puppies are all from the same litter. And one foster mom took home all nine of them. The same foster mom that is still fostering the infamous wall-eating dog Duke. She's crazy, I tell you, and I'm so glad that she is, because these puppies were going to be shot if we couldn't take them.
I love these puppies. They're having a blast in their foster home - running all over and throwing wild parties. These are nine very lucky puppies to end up where they did, thanks to many different volunteers who made calls on their behalf, and transported them to us, and thanks to a wonderful, Most Awesome foster mom who does more than I can imagine to save dogs and give them a happy life while they're waiting to be adopted. Hopefully we'll have lots of people wanting to adopt some very cute puppies very soon!
