found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, purebred, up to date with shots, and not good with cats.
As you know, we brought foster Isabel home on Saturday night, and she is ALREADY making progress! I must say that she already has been the most heartbreaking rescue that I've been involved with. On Saturday night, I wasn't sure that she'd ever come around. Generally mill dogs will be slow to "come around", but Izz acted differently from any I've ever seen.
She had no curiosity. She had no sparkle, no reaction, no...nothing. She didn't eat, she didn't drink, she didn't do anything. In fact, I had that sick feeling in my stomach that something might be VERY wrong with her, as she put up NO fight about taking meds, coming out of her crate, etc. I thought she might actually be dying of a broken heart. I woke up yesterday morning and the first thing I asked hubby was "How is Isabel?" I knew he must've been worried too as he'd already gone to the kitchen to check on her.
Well, along comes that little cartoon character, Georgie. Complete with her portly stance and flopping tongue, she has SINGLEHANDEDLY shown the new kid around, allowed her to nap in her house (something she doesn't allow the others to do), and taught her how to trot across the yard. Today at lunch, I came home to find Isabel up and wagging fiercly when I peeked around the corner. It was amazing!
Now the two are best buddies. And what an odd couple! Where Georgie is stubby and round...Izz is sleek and graceful. Georgie's face looks like something from a comic strip, and Izz looks like a model. I think Georgie could actually walk UNDER Izz's tummy!!
UPDATE 27 Jun 05 -- Word from Isabel's foster mom is that she doesn't like cats. So, at this time, we will not look at adopting her to any home that has cats there.
If you are interested in this or any other dog being fostered by IGCA Colorado Rescue, please contact our local Rescue Coordinator (firstname.lastname@example.org) to start the adoption paperwork process.
