Two New Additions!
One of our local residents who always visit us at adoption days rescued a little Australian Shepherd mix puppy from a guy giving them away in a parking lot! After talking to the guy for a little while she determined that the man was not the best doggie parent so she took the puppy. The next day she called us to see if we could take "Bella" . I am a big sucker for Australian Shepherds so I naturally said yes. The breed is very smart and loyal. Bella is 8 to 10 weeks old and a real sweetheart. She loves to snuggle. She is up for adoption and will be spayed when she is 12 weeks old.
Crystal is a dog we had in foster for two weeks. She was found at a construction site with cuts, abrasions, and an injured hind leg. This poor mama dog had just weaned a litter of puppies and was dumped. The gentleman that found her took her home and contacted us. Her cuts and scrapes are healing, but her leg is a different story. We think she was thrown out of a vehicle and her knee took the brunt of the fall. After a few weeks of great care, her scrapes have healed and she looks great. As I write this, she is in surgery. The vet is trying to repair the knee cap in order to save her leg. She is such a sweet dog she deserves a second chance at finding a forever home. She is housebroken, crate trained, and good with children and cats! She would be the perfect dog for an apartment. She is only 25 lbs and quiet!
