* Harry the American Bulldog/Lab mix went to a foster-to-adopt home. This is a great option for someone who is not sure if they're ready for a dog or who wants some time to make sure the dog will work with their household. They foster the dog, and if it works well, they adopt the dog, and if it doesn't work well they either keep fostering until the dog is adopted or return the dog to his original foster home. I am hopeful that Harry will do very well in his new foster home.
* Maddie the Australian Shepherd went to another foster home who fell in love with her when they saw her. Maddie has had her surgery and is now recovering. She was able to keep her leg (there was some concern that they may have to remove it) and will now be able to run and walk without being in pain. She's doing great in her new foster home and quickly learning all about living in a home and being spoiled.
* All of the Beagle/Shih Tzu/Brussels Griffon puppies have been adopted.
* Roxy the pit bull has had two adoption applications on her this week. One family lives in a city that requires a six foot fence for pit bulls, which they do not have. The other lives in a city that doesn't allow pit bulls. So Roxy is still stuck with me, but neither of us are complaining. Today she takes her Canine Good Citizen test.
* Tulsa the deaf Australian Cattle Dog and Noelle, my deaf pit bull, have both started beginning agility class. And Ziggy has started intermediate agility class. Everyone seems to be enjoying themselves.
* Yesterday's adoption event was very slow so we packed up early and four of us went to a nearby shelter and pulled four dogs that were out of time. They are all what we call "foo foo" dogs - small, fluffy, easily adoptable breeds. We took a Shih Tzu, a Lhasa Apso, a Pekingese and a Poodle. I got the Poodle. At least I think it's a poodle.
