Our new Puppy

by sands904 on 10/4/2008 at 8:52 PM in Visiting a Shelter

We first saw Lance (AKA George as he was named by the shelter) last Saturday at SafeHarbour Shelter. He was in a cage with his brother (Norton). They were an adorable pair, playing and very friendly. We told the shelter we were interested in him, but they said we couldn't interact with him yet because he had just be neutered the day before and wanted to let him rest. They told us to come back to see him on Monday.

Monday I went in to see him and got to play with him in the lobby for a while. He was not as playful as before and looked a little lethargic. The lady there told me he was getting a case of Kennel Cough. I left to get my husband and our other dogs so they could see him. The lady called me back on my way home to tell me they took Lance's temperature and it was 103.3 degrees and recommended we did not bring our dogs to see him as they could catch it. She told me to call on Thursday to see how he was doing.

On Thursday afternoon I called to find out he was better and ready to go home. Friday after work my husband and I took Lacey and Logan to the shelter to meet him. They brought him out to the outdoor pen to let our dogs meet him. At first Logan barked at him cause Logan is a barker. They showed some interest in each other, but Logan continued to bark. Lance was a little scared and hid in the corner once.

Despite their initial visit we decided to bring Lance home and hoped they would get along. It has been about one day in his new home and Lance is adjusting nicely. As for Lacey and Logan they are still a bit cautious and protective of us, their home and their toys, but it has been a huge improvement in just 24 hours. I thinks things will be fine.

Poor little Yorkie

by sands904 on 9/15/2008 at 7:24 PM in Visiting a Shelter

My husband and I visited our local shelter on Saturday looking for another dog to adopt. The first little one we saw was a female Yorkie. She had just been brought in the day before because her owners had used a childs elastic hair band to hold her mouth shut because she would not stop barking and crying for attention. Her muzzle had been shaved and there was a red scar all the way around it where the band had grown into her skin. It was terrible. I still can't believe all of the horrible things people do to their dogs.

We really wanted to adopt her but the lady there said it was likely she was going to go back to her owners who did this to her. That poor little dog. I am sure they have not changed their ways and will not love her and care for her any better than they did when they put the band around her mouth. She did have a loud bark and cry but we were their for over half an hour and she only seemed to make noise when people walked with other dogs. I think she just wanted some attention. We have our application all ready in case she doesn't have to go back to her family. I will keep you all posted...
