This is the kind of save that just makes you go Ahhhh;. Stuart is one of 2 newly aquainted buddies slated, for euthanasia in Riverside. Downtrodden in the shelter, both appeared to be seniors... not so much now! Stuart and Bailey haunted Raeann Murphy. Who in turn haunted me! They are hanging out in Huntington Beach looking for their respective homes, now under Central Coast Herding Dog rescue.
Stuart is perfect.
The gray on his face and body is from Heeler blue tick coloring, not age.
He has double dew claws on his back feet, which the shelter actually noted as little 'masses'! Kinda funny... Stu he is absolutely gorgeous!
Happy and gentle and seems to be in perfect condition, great teeth, eyes look good, needs to put on a couple more pounds, and his coat is beautiful.
Stuart is house trained, leash trained, great with other dogs, loves to play but is actually very calm, He has now decided, he loves to get hugs! At first he was a little iffy on the whole hug thing, a little undignified maybe? Now, he waits for them lol!
I can see why the staff at Riverside were desperate to get him out of the shelter. Even the vet staff were a bit emotional when they heard he was getting out.
Stuart is lovely
