Terrier/Chihuahua: Mutt Monday

A short-coated guy named Augustus wants to know if you will take him home. This one-year-old terrier/chihuahua boy looks ready for his new family. He is small with short fur.

Augustus Looks R

“Augustus’ family had to move and could not take him. He is still adjusting to being here at the Shelter – which can be a scary place. He is shy when you first meet him, but he will warm up quickly after spending time with you. He seems to love people, other dogs, and even our Shelter cat. He loves to go on walks and play with his stuffed toys. He is still a bit unsure of the big world, but with time and a loving family to live with, this guy will blossom into the wonder dog he can be. He just needs to know that his new family will not give him up again, too.”

This pet also is eligible for 30 days of pre-paid pet health insurance.

Mutt Monday, Maybe

With so many dogs yet so few homes, what can we do?

I think we can help save more dogs’ lives by doing some of the following:

  • Volunteer for a local rescue group or animal shelter.
  • Advocate for dog rescue and adoption.
  • Donate to humane causes.
  • Do foster care for a dog.

If you are not ready to become a fully committed, longterm dog parent for the life of a dog, foster care offers a wonderful option. Open your heart and home as a foster care parent. Animal shelters need foster care homes. Living in a shelter kennel puts tons of stress on dogs. Dog rescue groups need more homes also.

Today, my web connections are on and off, so instead of a dog adoption profile, I post this appeal. Plus a photo of a dog I met on this morning’s walk.

What a quiet dog! Intent on looking at my dog, Sydney, this dog surprised me by never barking, no, not even once.

If you are considering a purebred rescue, but are not sure what breed you can parent for the life of a dog, foster care provides one-on-one dog to person relationship. Opening your home for foster care, gives you a dog to love, while getting acquainted with the typical needs of a breed. Nearly all breeds have rescue groups working overtime. Many breeds have web sites for information on fostering, rescuing, monetary gifts and adoption.

In the future, I hope to provide foster care for a dog or two. And one breed interests me, due to potential decline in my ability to provide long walks.

I have met a Basset Hound called “Daisy” that I adored. She visited my daughter’s grammar school. On event days, Daisy seemed happy and exceptionally easy-going. Despite the breed’s sad expressions, I felt Daisy would brighten my days, but Daisy had a devoted dog mama. And in those days, I took long walks with my dogs. A Basset Hound wouldn’t have fit with my family’s activity level back then.
