The Terriers Had A One Night Stand

9 May

I went to the dog park with the two terriers and a cup of coffee and returned with the terriers and a fluffy! Meet Nameless:

This boy was going to be abandoned by his dad AT the dog run. A family member told him he couldn’t just do that,  at least give him to a person.

The poor boy! I asked the guy if he would give the dog to me, and he handed him over. Never asked my name, or for my phone number. Just: “You’ll give him a good home?”

Well, the little boy came home with me. All I knew about this guy was that he only liked human food, marked a bit and had previously lived with kids. I saw he was fine with other dogs while at the dog run and hoped he would make friends with my cat.

While at home, he was still in “owner search mode,” understandably. It was so, so sad. Not overtly anxious, but definitely confused and seriously looking for the man who had been caring for him. But he wasn’t too interested in “human food” and couldn’t really settle.

More adventures through fostering equals more information about my own happy family! So what I learned:

Goose the little terrier, will protest the dog no matter what the size!

Bird, the larger terrier,  likes having boy dogs in the house (and on the bed)! They decided to be friends and play at 1:00am on my bed.

Sal, the hairless, one-eyed kitty doesn’t care too much about new dogs. As long a he has covers to sleep under and lots of yummy human food, he is happy camper! Nameless determined that Sal was his playmate and initiated play with no response.

Nameless, as I called him, was so tempting to keep all to my own! Great dog skills, awesome with handling and a good boy all around! Too bad I don’t want another small/medium dog! Thanks to Tristan‘s finder and caretaker, Rachel, I quickly found a foster-to-adopt couple! In less than 24 hours, he has a place to call home where he will be showered with lots of attention. Nameless is currently getting a needed grooming and I can’t wait to see what he will look like!

Tristan’s Adopted!

Tristan Adopted

We met Tristan just over a month ago when a close friend of ours, Lydia, asked us to help in finding him a new home. One of her staff, the wonderfully helpful Rachel, found Tristan abandoned in her local dog run. He was left there overnight, and she discovered that other dog owners from the neighborhood had been bringing him food, but no one was able to take him in out of the cold. Well, she did just that and then called on us to help.

Well, it’s been just one month, and throughout that time, Rachel has been responsible for Tristan: taking him on his daily walks, helping with his training and more. Lydia & Rachel both felt, that although we couldn’t see it, Tristan was actually not yet neutered. After some tests, that were covered by another friend of ours, we discovered that Tristan was indeed cryptorchid; his testicles hadn’t descended outside his body.

So after being neutered (his testicles were up near his bladder, poor guy!), and a couple of meet & greets with a potential adopter, the deal was signed. Tristan’s award-winning personality landed him in a wonderful home with great parents and feline siblings. Thank you to the whole team for making this adoption possible. This was truly one of those, “It takes a village…” stories, and Trsitan definitely had a great village behind him!

Adoptable Pittie of the Week: Tristan

18 Feb

Tristan

Tristan is a sweet loving pit mix found in the park after being left there overnight. He has lovely green eyes and brown fur with patches of white on his feet and chest. Tristan loves people; everyone is his new best friend! He does well with other dogs, eager to approach and say hello, he’s quite a hit with the ladies.

Tristan

His temperament is very even, his energy level is not overwhelming but he loves to go on walks. He is a fast learner, quickly picking up sit, his name, walking with a loose leash, having four legs on the ground for attention and his new potty training routine.

Tristan

He is being crate trained and is comfortable being left home alone for a few hours. He is great with food, giving his bowl up easily for any hand that reaches over. He is also a great to cuddle! Loving any attention he can get.
