about making a doofus face
Hootie was adopted today (MARCH 21) by a family with a 7 yr old daughter (Lori, thank you & Salem Animal Rescue League so much for rescuing him). Thanks to ALL of you for your help in giving him a 2nd chance for a GREAT life. Whoever nicknamed him "the mouth from the South," hit the nail on the head.
For those of you who may not know his story, my original plea for help is below. And no, my brother-in-law has not even once asked about his welfare since turning him over to me. Unfortunately, we can't pick family.
March 7, 2010:
Hootie is a 16 week old treeing walker coonhound mix. At eight weeks, his life was in the mud at the end of a chain attached to bumper of a semi. He was purchased for $40 and given to my brother-in-law for Christmas. We all know how horribly unfair it is to "gift" someone with a 12-15 year commitment with out the person's permission and it's the dog that suffers.
My brother-in-law decided over the last 8-wks that he does not want Hootie and posted him on Craigslist. I was able to convince him we could put him on Petfinder and find a good home. The foster situation did not work out so I'm hoping to board him at Best Friends in Charlotte for a week or two, but he really needs rescue or foster to work with him. I do not know that BF has space and I am currently unable to foster.
Hootie knows "sit," "lay down," and "come." He is a typical puppy in that he jumps and play bites; he's very curious. He loves giving kisses. He counter surfs and has been known to turn over trash cans - two things I did not know until last night. He's close to being house- and crate-trained, but not 100% yet. Because he's used to being with someone during the day, he has an anxiety bark if you're out of his sight. After about 15-20 mins in the crate, he quiets down. He is very smart, he just needs proper training and he will make a fantastic pet.
He's had his vaccs & rabies, but my brother-in-law did not send his vet records so I'll have to get those done again. I'll also have him neutered. He has 6-months of Heartguard.
If you can rescue or foster, please contact me directly. If you cannot, please crosspost! I don't want to save him from a bad situation only to take him to Animal Contol.
What did woo think of all THAT? Mom got that email Sunday evening and knew straightaway Hootie would be making an appearance here today for TTT Thursday! He has so much to be thankful fur and I know we are thinking of soooooo many thoughts now too - grrrrrrrrr
Mom enjoyed getting to read that so many others have had the same 'fun' with moving pikhs around on Blogger - she's heard it is a bit easier with Firefox but I use IE for pawing my blog AND Firefox fur my GooglieReaderieThingie. Even though she's a Virgo, she has learned to let go of making sure the pikhs are properly placed which is a good thing fur it means I get my walks sooner!
See all of woo here tomorrow fur FrEYEday SkEYEday with the pawtential fur some FUR fur ME!
