I adopted Lulu out about 6 months ago after fostering her for about a year and her being returned from 2 homes. She was an awesome dog with just not a bit of luck. Plus being a apbt mix didn't help with finding a loving home. Well check this out and I think we can all agree that she is loved now! I love happy endings!
Thank you Norm! Even when it gets tough I just look back through all the pictures of happy homes and I remember why I do this. I can't imagine all the dogs I have helped find homes filling up a landfill somewhere.
I know I always thought Lulu was the biggest cutie pie ever! She has a fabulous model smile! I miss her happy waggy butt hehe! I am so grateful that she found such a wonderful home though where she gets all the attention she could hope for. When I first took her to meet them it was love at first sight with Grace (the little girl in the picture). I knew they were the ones for her.
Great pics bippy! I am so glad Lulu found a great home!
What beautiful Huskies! Where are you located? My husband would kill me, but I've been getting the itch to adopt again! Hehehe!
We had a similar situation when we adopted Yukon. When I took him in to get neutered, the vet found shotgun shot in his behind and scrotum. Poor baby! Either he had gotten into someone's livestock, or he was mistaken for a coyote. (Duh) What's the story on Jax's injury? So glad they're with you!
The more people I meet, the more I love my Siberians...
Hey Husky! I am actually all the way down in Houston, Texas. You would be surprised how many huskies are down here. Here is the rescue group I work with http://www.huskyhaven.org.
Jax was picked up by a trucker running down the highway with the gaping wound in his back (you have seen the pictures). The trucker took him to the closest humane society and thats when Husky Haven got the call. The president of our group can hardly say no to a smileing husky face much less one so in need so when she got the pictures it was off to the humane society she went to get him to the vet. The vet is the one who said it looked like an arrow wound and couldn't even touch the bottom of the wound with his finger (yuck). Jack had sugery to clean the wound out stitch it up and put tubes in for drainage. Then comes me! Husky Haven's president has 20 dogs living at her home (she has a kennel area like a boarding facility) so to take care of one dog that needs extra attention she just can not do. I took him to foster and was having to clean the area 3 times a day and give him his pills. He had his last set of stitches out about 3 weeks ago. Last week he had an abcess(sp) come up where the first set of stitches were removed so now we are going through treatment for that (more cleaning and pills ughhh). The funny thing about all of this is that the whole time even when you know it had to hurt he has acted like nothing is wrong. He plays and is a big rambunctious puppy. He loves playing with the other dogs but has been trying to prove his dominance recently so is being a pain in the butt with Vaughn. They can't have food, toys, or treats together. He doesn't mind our dachshunds or our female husky so we just keep the toys and such out of reach when they are out together. Well I think that is the whole story up to date!
Thanks for the compliments guys. It always makes me feel good to hear that what I am doing is a good thing. It was really hard to keep doing this after I lost Miracle to distemper. I waited to foster again for about 3 months after he passed.
