I had been on a pretty good “making things” streak, but am sort of stalled because of this little lady:
Isn’t she cute? Well, if you think so and also think “I wish I could have a dog just like that,” you’re in luck! She’s not our dog. Actually, I have no idea whose dog she is, although we’ve been trying our hardest to figure that out. We think she was dumped or ran away a while ago, and her owners either don’t care or have given up looking.
Anyway. She was hanging around the house so we gave her water, and then she was still there in the morning so we gave her more water, and then because she was still there at the end of the day, we fed her and put her on a lead so she couldn’t run into traffic, and now here she is.
She’s very sweet, but kind of a nut. She doesn’t really understand “sit” or “shake” or anything really except for “stay.” She loves treats, though, and learns quickly, so we’re hopeful. Now the task is to get her spayed, up on her shots, and crate trained so that we can find her a good family.
We’re not that family. I had this realization after a rather impressive allergy attack, when I remembered that I’m actually allergic to dogs, and also actually quite happy with the cats.
So if you know of someone who needs a lovely little bully mix, or recognizes this particular little lady (to be known as Ginger Ladycakes until somebody else gives her another name), please let me know. I want her to have a happy home, but I am smart enough to realize that my home is not that home.
Network through Dogs Deserve Better on facebook?
Good idea! I’ll try that. Thanks!
Do you want to borrow our crate? I don’t think we can take in a dog right now (although Argus really would like a dog friend, she’s pretty lonely since Lucky disappeared).
Regardless of what happens, I would indeed like to borrow your crate.
What a beauty! I wish I could take her, but we won’t bring any more dogs around my old Bouncer. He doesn’t need that stress at 14 y.o. 😦
I’ve met some bully-type dogs recently that I really like though. I bet she’s a Very Good Dog.
She is a Very Good Dog! We felt really bad – we’ve been keeping her in the basement until we can acquire a crate, and she is the saddest thing, because she’s afraid of the stairs. If you hear of somebody else who is looking, please do connect us! I really want to find her a best friend.
