Coming Soon...

Are you prepared? They lure you in with that cute face, but we all know what comes next!

Well, for those of you who still can't believe you can find GREAT dogs at shelters, check out this tiny ball of fur. He was in a local shelter. His owner was contacted, and wasn't interested in coming to get him. This guy is really young, and after 7 days at a shelter, we are hoping he will stay in good health. Please keep him in your prayers this week. He had his first set of shots Friday, and is safe in foster care. The shelter is no place for a baby with no immune system yet.

No need to wait for this guy though. Arlington Animal Services has a BEAUTIFUL 4 year old adult male husky (see post below) that may not be with us past Monday or Tuesday. Arlington is doing EVERYTHING to move dogs to safety. We continue to support all their efforts. They have a vet on staff to spay/neuter so no dogs leave in tact! These days people are dropping dogs at the shelters in droves. It's up to you, animal lovers, to open your home to one more family member. You may not be in the market, but the dogs REALLY need you. How much effort is one more dog or cat? Every day I am looking at lists that will break your heart.

If Aussie Sheps are more your thing, check out Weatherford (also a male Lhasa there).

Denton, is an outstanding shelter that had ZERO adoptions on Friday, and we're hoping Saturday was much better. They have several highly adoptable dogs that you will fall in love with including two lhasas and a great pyr.

Please spend some time this coming week encouraging your friends to adopt dogs from the shelters.

If you have a friend looking for a particular dog, let us know. I will be happy to guide people to rescues and shelters for the dog they seek.

Thank you.
