Introducing Dora

Dora is a three year old Black Lab/Border Collie mix.  She came from a rural shelter, and was heartworm positive.  She's been in another foster home while undergoing treatment for heartworms, and once her treatment was complete she came to my house so she could start going to adoption events.

Big black dogs like Dora are often difficult to place.  I expected to have her for awhile.  But at her very first adoption event last weekend, she was a big hit.  Although she didn't find a home, she did get a lot of attention.  So when we had the chance to attend another event during the week, I took Dora along with Chloe the pit bull, Jefferson the Shepherd mix, and Midnight the cat.  Again Dora was very popular, and by the end of the event she had an application for adoption!

Dora is now in her new home, and doing very well.  She was only here for a week, and it was great to find a perfect home for her so quickly.

Although Jefferson and Chloe did not have so much luck getting adopted, they will hopefully soon find new homes thanks to a photographer from Shelter Me Photography.  She took photos of both dogs at the mid-week event, and hopefully that will get them some attention when people are looking at dogs on the adoption sites online.

I'm so happy for Dora. She is beautiful. What great pictures of Chloe an Jefferson. Chloe has a great smile and Jefferson's personality just jumps right out of the picture. Hope they find a home soon.

Love, Cupcake

Just picture that face on Jefferson looking at you through a window every time you come home! That would make anyone's heart go pitter pat, pitter pat. I get to see a similar face here at my house all the time.
