UPDATE FROM FOSTER/ADOPTER:
Last week I volunteered to foster a dog for a local rescue group, Secondhand Hounds.
HUSKY OR BORDER COLLIE OR BOTH?All we knew is that the puppy had blue eyes and so she was assumed to be part husky. Over the last year we sadly lost both of our huskies to old age and illness so we thought a foster dog would be a good way for us to fill the void.
POSING FOR PHOTOSBear (who was known to you as Adelle) arrived here in the Twin Cities last Sunday in a van packed with other animals from your shelter.
BATHTIMEShe was a little afraid to come out of her crate at first but by the first night with us she was already building confidence and wagging her tail. We immediately knew she was one of the sweetest dogs we'd ever met.
RESTINGWithin 24 hours it was obvious that we couldn't merely foster her so we immediately adopted her. We've had her in our home for less than a week and are pretty sure she's a border collie through and through.
FOCUSED ON FRISBEEGiven that, we've started training her to fetch a frisbee and I'm not sure who enjoys it more -- her or us.
RUNNINGShe's also started going on runs with me and I can tell she's going to be a great training partner.
BEAR AND DADOn the vet records that came with her she's listed as a "dumpster dog" and it breaks our hearts to think that such an amazing dog so full of affection and happiness could be abandoned.
PLAYING WITH TOYSShe's already brought new light into our lives and we couldn't be happier to have her as a part of our family.
BEAR AND MOMThank you for saving her and caring for her. You can rest assured that she will have nothing but the best that life has to offer from this day forward.
