Happy update on Justin the little earless shep--HE IS GETTING ADOPTED!! YAY- Karen
THIS HAPPY SMILE BROUGHT TEARS TO MY EYES
FIRST REPORT FROM FOSTER HOME:
The baby is here! We picked up Justin/Beebs this afternoon, fresh off the transport down from Red Lake Rosie's. Grungy, flea bitten, missing big chunks of hair and ears. But sweet, quiet, gentle, wags his tail, defers to the other dogs . . . and Butch, the rickety old cat.
BATHTIMEHe was scared at first when we took a step towards him, but is already following us around and is currently taking a post-bath nap with Jesse. He was in the house for about 30 minutes before E asked if we can adopt him. He has no idea what a Tennis ball is but loves chasing after the other guys who grew up playing tennis : )
A sweet sweet boy! We are so happy he is here and will never be hurt again.
C&E~, promoting fostering/adopting - it rocks!
TERRIFIED JUSTIN BEFORERESPONSE FROM RESCUE GROUP MARS:
Thank you so much Colleen for the update. After meeting him tonight, it just reinforces why rescue is here. This sweet boy has done nothing in his short life to have gone through what he has gone through, yet is so forgiving of us humans.
He knows he is safe with you guys and we thank you for coming to his rescue.
JOY AND CONFIDENCE
UPDATE FROM FOSTER/ADOPTING HOME:
We for sure want to adopt Justin.
We have changed his name to Leo - since he has a noble lion-like face and he is so courageous. He has fit into our home and with the other dogs so amazingly well!
Thanks for sending Leo our way - we adore him!!!
