Boudreaux, Honey, Precious and Bleau !!!!
Boudreaux has found a way to cool off! Our Walker Hound thinks he is a lab! He discovered the water tub a few months ago and has continued to use it as his own personal cool down tub! He is such a goofy dog. Boudreaux was one of parvo puppies from last year. He was adopted, but his hound nature made it difficult to live in the city in a normal backyard. He is quite a squirrel dog!
When the litter of puppies were found they were all thin and very sick. We were able to save 6 of the 8 puppies. It was quite a challenge. So this litter of puppies have a special place in our hearts. We want him to find a forever home and one where he will be allowed to use his hound traits! He is all grown up and a beautiful dog.
Another beautiful dog is HONEY - Remember her - she also likes water. Honey is doing well in her new home. She has three other pack mates and a wonderful human companion. I just love it when I get pictures of our dogs in their new homes. Honey was a lucky dog to find such an engaged owner. She is doing great because of such a kind and loving home.
Precious keeps us smiling. Her lack of vision certainly doesn't slow her down. She now weighs 6 pounds and her eye pressures are remaing constant. That is good news! Over time and with medication it may go down some. She has discovered a new best friend - Bleau. Since Bleau jumps the fence to get inside, he has become a mostly inside dog. He is crate trained and practically housebroken. He NEVER marks my house!!!! I am sooo impressed. I had to teach him to be gentle, and not paw at the little one. He readily learned that she is just a baby! Now he just lets her crawl all over him.
We have many great dogs that need a loving home. Our "ready for adoption" number is 8 and our permanent resident number is 10! Four are my personal dogs and the other 6 are either old, have behavioral issues, or otherwise unadoptable. That is a lot so we need everyone's help in finding homes.
