Introducing Roo and Audrey

This is my newest foster dog.

I named her Roo.  She's very sweet, and she has sad eyes and large ears. Roo was picked up as a stray by an area animal control facility.  She is around four years old, and she is very laid back.  She does really well with the other dogs, and completely ignores the cats, so she's no problem here at all.  This is good since she is a pit bull and will probably be here awhile.

Ever since she arrived, Roo almost always has either a bone or a stuffed toy in her mouth.  She learned her new name right away, and already knows how to sit on command.  She is house-trained and comes when called.  So far she has absolutely no bad habits, but I figure if she hangs around here very much, Ziggy is sure to teach her a thing or two.

Audrey is my other newest foster dog, although she's only here until Saturday when she's being adopted!  Audrey is a two year old Shih Tzu, and is great with other dogs, although she thinks that cats are great fun to bark at and chase.  She is such a happy little girl - it's hard to believe that just a month ago she was scheduled to be euthanized at an area shelter.

There are so many purebred, young, well behaved dogs in shelters that are euthanized instead of being saved.  Audrey and Roo are two of the few lucky ones that make it out alive. They're now enjoying the comfort of a foster home until they are adopted!

Roo is so beautiful! She has the face of an angel :)
Audrey is probably happy because she knows exactly how close she came to death!!
We wish her the best possible life with her forever family :)

Adorable dogs! So glad at least one of them has found their forever home!

Aww Audrey looks just like my dog nephew... that is so sad that perfectly adoptable pets are getting euthinized before they get a chance to get a new home!

Yay for Audrey that she already has her furever home! And you just never know abouts Roo. Bully-gals with Most Magnificent Ears have a way of melting people's hearts, you know.
