Today, a lady from Victoria BC came looking for her next grey who would be a companion for her older lab mix. She has had a number of purebreds and lurchers so she is very familiar with the dogs and had an idea of what she was looking for — a middle aged girl. All of the dogs we showed her got along well with her current dog so the decision was really up to her and she chose Kanga!!
I keep saying that doing turnout and the Brightwater walks are a greyt way to get to know the dogs and identify potential ones to adopt This couple definitely took advantage of those opportunities which gave one of our more reserved dogs a chance to get comfortable with them and start to show his true colors. As they watched him blossom, they realized what a special guy he is and knew they were going to have to adopt Bong, nka Dexter.
After we helped get all the new dogs settled, we got to help a family pick out a new friend for their greyhound, Lucy, who has been mourning the loss of her brother 2 weeks ago. The dad kept hoping that Lucy was going to make his job really easy by making the selection for him. That didn’t happen … she got along with all the dogs except one so he was forced to make the decision himself. He saw a wide variety of dogs from one of our shyest dogs to a couple of our most energetic ones. At the end of the day, he and Lucy picked our sweet girl from Korea, Wynter, who is now known as Ethel.
