It’s been hard on us since Brody died. Lee and I finally decided to look into a female dog, thinking we could use some balance. I talked to a couple of people about potential new dog friends. One sweet girl lives in Mexico and looks like a bigger Vlassic. One is a large and beautiful puppy. I don’t think we can do another puppy for a while.
I kept going back to a dog called Izzy I’d been following at the Cameron pound. She isn’t spectacular to look at, just a plain reddish dog. So, no one has adopted her. Apparently her mom is a pug/dachshund mix, but the dad is an unknown Cameron roaming stud. She gets pug wrinkles when she’s concerned.
She’d been tied up outside for a long time with two other dogs in a less than ideal situation. But then she got a foster home for a while to get her used to houses. She did well there. A good sign.
We’re hoping she likes our guys. She’s a little snippy and a lap hog, but that may be just settling in stuff. We will give her some time. It’s a large pack to assimilate to!
We know she has enjoyed running around and playing with the guys. And she’s soft and cuddly. We will need to spay her if we keep her. Let’s hope it works out! And we are calling her Penelope Pureheart or Penney. (We can’t call her Copper, because there’s already a Copper on the ranch).
This is what happens when all you see every day is sad rescue dogs. You want to rescue dogs!
Remember, you can help Milam County dogs without taking them home by joining or donating to Milam Touch of Love. We’d love to be able to spay or neuter our pound dogs before they are adopted out.
