BUDDY & OZZIE, The Rescue Beagle and Hound Dogs That Keep Each Other Company (PART 5)

“I didn’t know what beagles were like so I had no idea what energy they have.  I thought because he was a little bit older that he would be calm.  I tried to keep him contained in a pen and that didn’t work.

Once I put him on the patio while I was cleaning the floor and he broke through the plastic screen covering a window, so he made his own doggie door.

Buddy is more concerned with what I am doing and Ozzie is concerned with what Buddy is doing.

The only scare I had with Ozzie was when he ate chocolate pudding, but he was okay.

There was never any jealously between them.  They know their pecking order.”

“Once he got out of his collar, ran down the block, and headed towards the nearest avenue with a lot of traffic.  Luckily, a construction worker caught him and held onto him.

I got a camera to see what he was up to during the day because I work long hours at the office.  I watched him sitting by himself and even though it didn’t seem to bother him, I wasn’t okay with that.

I decided I would feel better if he had a companion.

Everyone tried to discourage me from getting another dog.  They said, you’re not going to be able to handle this.”

“There was an event at the Petco near my apartment and Buddy was the first and only dog I met.

I felt like I could relate to him.

He seemed happy and content, like a chill little guy.  There was another woman interested but she seemed weird.

They asked me if I wanted to take him for a walk and I walked him home to my apartment.  He sniffed around, hopped on the couch and seemed at home.

I went out of the room and he followed me.  He’s always by my feet.  He’s my little shadow.

Having Buddy helped me get over a bad relationship quickly.

I feel like I am pretty fortunate, and giving Buddy a good life means a lot to me.  I know that he feels safe and loved.”

“My boyfriend was living with me and he was really against getting a dog.  He thought it was too much work.

It was something I wanted for a long time.

After he moved out, I started looking for a dog.

I got Buddy the day after my 30th birthday.  He was my birthday present to myself.

LEO, THE LIONHEARTED, MIRACLE TERRIER RESCUE (PART 3)

“After opening her up and discovering she was pregnant, they closed her up, unsure if the puppies would survive, but they did.

Leo is a miracle baby.

One of the rescuers said, the puppies had hearts of lions, so we called him Leo (the lionhearted).

One of the reasons for getting Leo was so that he could be a companion for my mother.

She is 83 and has early stages of dementia.  Her Doctor recommended getting another dog to help keep her focused and social.”

“I filled out an application for him on the Friday before Mother’s Day and that Sunday, I got a call to go to Unleashed on Columbus Avenue to meet with him.

He and his brother were both available.

I had filled out the application for Leo, so I met with him, and after the apartment inspection he was ours.

I found out that his mom and two other dogs were surrendered to a shelter and immediately spayed and neutered, without knowing that one of the dogs was pregnant.”

CHARLIE MEATBALL, THE RHODESIAN RIDGEBACK RESCUE MIX (SHE SAID, PART 4)

“A woman had driven by him day after day and noticed that he was tied up, his body was fly bitten, emaciated and deteriorating.

One day she knocked on the owners’ door and asked if she could take him home with her.

They told her, take him.

He was transported to Denver, where we lived at the time, and saw him at the Petco adoption event.”

“We all got in the car and my sister drove us to the first event, which was the furthest away, but they didn’t have any puppies so I was ready to leave.

My ex saw this dog that he wanted to meet.

He was being walked on a leash so we thought he belonged to someone, but he was indeed up for adoption.

We talked to the people at Petco, where the event was being held to ask about the health history of the dog called, Lyle.

He was really sick and emaciated.

They told us that he was a rescue from Texas.”

Norman, the Goofy Shepherd/Husky Puppy That Makes Everyone Laugh (part 5)

“My husband and I are usually out and about and traveling, but Norman has caused us to be home and slow down.

We have spent every weekend at home and now have a greater appreciation for the city.

We take long walks through the park and spend more time at the dog run, because Norman loves it.”

They get along great, but Norman can be annoying because he wants to play more than she does (she’s 11), he gets the message most of the time and backs off.

We’ve had Norman four month and he’s such a ball of energy.

He’s funny; he’s that goofy puppy that makes everyone laugh.

He’s got long legs that he will hopefully, grow into, but right now he’s very uncoordinated and constantly tripping over his own legs.”
