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
Dale was born about November 2, 2008 and weighs about 12 lbs. She is wonderful with all of us, but can be picky about what dogs she wants to befriend. We have no information on why she ended up at the high kill shelter, but she was a matted mess and just covered with fleas so now that she is healing and flea free her fur is growing back in and she'll be gorgeous again one day. She is happy, funny, and just loves to be loved. Someone is going to be very happy that she made this journey! This is all we know so far and we'll all be learning as we go. We do like to warn that many of these small dogs do benefit from having floor potty pads handy for when they just can't hold it.
The Adoption Fee for this dog is $200.00.
