This transport is to honor my husband, Gary Leaton. He loved old westerns, detective shows and Buddy Rich. He started playing drums when he was 5 years old and he practiced almost every day of his life. He named one of his dogs Drummer and he thought of himself as” Drummer”. So -----the DRUMMER transport.
Gary loved animals and donated to numerous animal rights organizations. He always felt he should be doing more to help abused or abandoned animals. He was very hard on himself because he couldn't save them all. He rescued the dog we had together when we got married, Master, from Lollipop Farm. When we lost Master to cancer, we got Logan from Joyful Rescues. Then 6 months later we added Haley to our family. They both enriched and added so much love and joy to our lives. We didn't know that Gary would have so little time with them. Just over a year with Logan and less with Haley. The only thing he wanted to do when he was in the hospital was come home to his “children” but it wasn't to be.
Gary would be so proud to know that lives were being saved because of him." ~Laura Leaton
Nancy Jo was born about November 10, 2015 and weighs about 17 lbs. She is an adorable little girl that is going to need some warm up time in a new environment with new humans. She is a quiet, little, thing that seems to have her heart broken and looked extremely frightened in the high kill shelter photo after being separated from her brother when he was adopted. She's not at all nippy so we feel strongly someone out there is going to give her the love and understanding she deserves to become a valued member of her new family. We are very thankful she is here. As we like to say with all small dogs they sometimes do best with potty floor pads for those moments that they just can't hold it any longer. Dr. Rasnake did make note of a Grade 1 murmur with a very mild jet murmur, but sees no need to be concerned now or in the foreseeable future. If you are worried about this please do google it.
The Adoption Fee for this dog is $250.00.
