found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
UPDATE MAY 30 2009: Josie's foster family doesn't feel she is the right fit for them, so this beautiful loving girl is once again available for adoption.
UPDATE: Josie is now safe in foster care! Her foster family has taken her in with consideration to adopt. What a lucky girl.
Josie is EXTREMELY URGENT in one of the shelters we deal with. She was turned in by her owners who moved to the city and tied her up outside. Being tied out is almost a surefire way to make a dog unhappy, aggressive, and vocal. Josie was barking at people and things that went by and the neighbours complained, so instead of bringing her in with her family, she was promptly dropped at the local shelter. She is extremely stressed there and in immediate danger of euthanasia, as she is even having stress colitis from her stressed out state.
Josie's previous owners report that she's good with dogs, cats, and older kids (untested with small kids). The shelter reports that she can be intolerant of pushy dogs. She is very affectionate and people-loving and is really suffering, being confined in a kennel. Worse, as of early April she is now having blood in her stools, indicating her stress level is becoming critical, putting her at immediate risk of euthanasia.
We cannot take in Josie without a foster home. Please consider opening your heart and home to her. It's not her fault she ended up with irresponsible people who didn't care about her, but she is paying every second of every day in this kennel. Her status is day to day right now - if she deteriorates much further, she will be put to sleep. Please help us to help her.
