OLIVE, THE FRENCH BULLDOG THAT WANTS TO PLAY 24/7 (PART 2)

IMG_7318

“I say that it’s like living with a toddler.

She wants to play 24/7.

I started doing research into rescuing a Frenchie but I realized pretty quickly that the ones available to rescue usually had either health or behavioral issues.

I realized that I wasn’t the best owner for that situation.”

“I got Olive because my last dog died and I was still living at home, but was considering moving out on my own.

I was doing research on good apartment dogs and French Bulldogs came up a few times.

I also thought they were very cute.

People said they were quiet and calm.

Olive is the opposite.”

BABKA, THE JACK RUSSELL/RAT TERRIER/CHIHUAHUA RESCUE FROM BIDE-A-WEE (PART 1)

“My husband always wanted a cat and I am allergic, so we agreed to get a dog.

I was not an animal person, before Babka.

We had just started looking and went to Bide-A-Wee Rescue.

Initially, we wanted a one year old dog.

We thought an older dog, (older than a puppy), would be easier for first time dog owners.

The other thing is I was afraid of a nipping puppy.”

“I was bitten when I was a child and was a little nervous around dogs in general.

The counselors at Bide-a-Wee recommended that we meet Babka, (called Pretty Girl, at the time), even though she was just six months old.

Her tail wagged the entire time we spent together and she leapt from my lap to my husband’s lap.

His cats used to do that, so he took this as a sign that she was meant to be ours.”

Milo, the Pomsky (Pomeranian/Husky Mix), (part 3, she said)

“We ended up looking at Lancaster Puppies and Greenfield Puppies.

As soon as we saw photos from Greenfield, where Milo’s photo was posted, we knew we wanted him.

We missed out on a few other pups before him, because they get adopted really quickly, so we called the breeder and put a deposit on him immediately.

We flew Milo to New York City five days later.

That was eight months ago.”

“I started googling Pomsky’s for sale everywhere.

I looked up the personality for both Pomeranian and Husky and their descriptions matched what we were looking for.

They are very smart, active, physically appealing and social with other animals, including cats (which we do have).

We had limited options because they are relatively a new mix of breeds.

There were breeders in NY.”

“Milo is my first dog.

I live with my boyfriend, and living in the city we don’t have a lot of space because

we live in a small apartment.

We wanted a dog that resembled a wolf or a Husky.

A Husky was too big for us but we came across the Pomsky, which is a Pomeranian mated with a Husky.

I did a lot of research and came across an article about the Pomsky.

I loved that they look like mini Husky’s.”

MABEL, THE JINDO,CAIRN TERRIER, CHIHUAHUA RESCUE FROM KOREA (SHE SAID, PART 2)

“We started following Korean K9 Dog Rescue’s website and saw Mabel’s photograph four months later.

I looked at her picture every day for 11 days.

I found out there was an event happening in Long Island City.

We waited on line for over an hour and a half to meet her.

I looked for her, but she wasn’t in the center, playing with the other rambunctious puppies.

She was off in a corner, curled up in a little ball.

She was already a year old and was so calm.”
