Join us here each Monday as Regional Vice President Kathy Kreyling shares stories from the Adoption Center. Check out our Available Dogs to see who’s still waiting for their forever home.
There are some dogs that have so much charisma that it is extremely difficult to understand why they have not been adopted. The most recent adoption was a boy just like that. Luckily, a man came down from Canada with his Lurcher, Cody, to find a new family member and this dog was one of the ones in contention. Cody is a little fragile since he has been attacked by another dog before, so he needed a dog that wasn’t going to be too pushy and was also wanting to play, but understood when Cody was done. This dog met all those criteria and more … he started his introduction to his potential new family by walking through the doors to the adoption center, pausing to make sure he had everyone’s attention and then did the cutest Roo and little dance — no one could resist that, especially his father to be. The two dogs got along beautifully, and Charm is now going to be a Canadian!!!
A few of the new dogs are ready for adoption and they have already started marching out the door! The first lady needed a dog that could get along with her cat and believe it or not she actually had quite a few dogs to choose from. However, in this particular situation, she didn’t even make it past the second dog. He came out to the adoption center, walked right over and kissed her face, she lit up like a Christmas tree and that was all she wrote!! Butch, nka Abel, knew he had found his person and she knew she had found her new best friend!!!
The next appointment was with two men who were looking for a dog that was moderately active and could go to work with one of them. We started by showing them a few of our girls and then one of the men mentioned that he really wanted a “big dog” so we switched gears and started showing our big boys. They narrowed the field to one big boy and one little girl and after playing in the yard they picked sweet little Birdy as their new addition. It was a really tough decision for them and we hope they come back to add the big boy to their family!!!!
