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.
When we found out that we were going to be getting some dogs from Australia, we were all so excited and we couldn’t wait to meet them. If you have not had the opportunity to meet them, I think you might have missed your chance — at least for this load. These dogs are running out the door so fast I can hardly believe it. The latest adoption was to a lady who had gone on the Brightwater walk (remember, I told you, this is a greyt way to get first crack at the dogs!). This lady walked the dog this weekend, fell in love with him and she adopted him today and she took home one special dog named Floyd!!!! –
When you get a call from the breeder telling you that a littermate of your dog is available and he would like you to adopt the dog, what can you possibly say but “yes”?? That is exactly what happened to this couple. The breeder told them that the sister to their dog had finished her racing career and, if the tracks hadn’t been closing, she would have become a brood mom, but instead she was ready to start her retirement. She arrived last week and was just ready to go home — the only obstacle was re-meeting her brother and being introduced to her new sister. Luckily, everything went as we all hoped and Banjo headed home with her brother, River, and new sister, Kayak (fka Killer Cheetah).
This couple was looking for a dog that was cat trainable and, unlike the situation we were in a short while ago, we actually had a few dogs for them to choose from! It’s a good thing that they were open to having a young dog because every one of the 5 dogs we showed them were under 3 and, in fact, four out of the five were well under 2 years of age. They narrowed it down to 2 boys, one fawn and one white/brindle who had very similar energy levels and personalities. Of course, one person preferred the fawn and the other wanted the white/brindle — but, after a little discussion, they decided that they were going home with the latter, Noah who is now known as Ronan!
