Update on Minnie by Skeeter
I thought I would update you on Minnie. Minnie is the Hound/Spaniel mix dog that the Saints mom and dad are Fostering. Minnie won over Mom B's heart while volunteering with Animal adoptions at Petco on a recent Saturday afternoon.
Minnie was not in the best condition for being chosen as a Pet. She was covered in dirt and animal “dew” from playing with her three siblings just before pick up from the Volunteer driver. Once at the store for adoption, she was pretty much ignored due to her condition and the fact that she was shying in the corner of the kennel. Mom B felt something for this furry gal and took her into the store for grooming.
Once groomed, Mom B took her home to condition her for a better chance at being adopted. She and Dad B have worked really hard with this sweet natured girl. She has over come many obstacles in the two weeks they have had her. She now plays chase with a ball, she goes into her kennel without a fight and she takes walks with a neighbor and a German Sheppard friend. She still has issues with being outside but they are continuing to work on her in that department.
Beep… Beep… Late Breaking News…. Beep… Beep….Good news! They found a new home for Minnie! If you have not already guessed it, Mom and Dad B are keeping Minnie! Minnie gets along well with their cat Missy and she will have a wonderful new life in this loving home! We can hardly wait to meet the Saints new sister!
Mom and Dad B have never had a dog before. Since Mom B did not know much about dogs, she felt confident the she would not get attached to one with her volunteering. Ha, I told her that is why I don’t work with adoptions because I would bring them all home and that just would not work with our current lifestyle… I wonder if she will continue to Volunteer…?....
Two of Minnie’s siblings have been adopted as well. Mom B tells me that the agency she works with adopted out 11 dogs this past weekend with only one being returned. I think that is great!
Don’t y’all just love happy endings?
