I do rescue and had a rescue over the weekend I have to share.
I received a call from the local shelter, they had one of my dogs that I thought had found her forever home.
She is a very sweet and timid little 5 pound Yorkie/Wirehair mix and she was shaking like a leaf when I claimed her.
I was so angry with the people that had adopted her and then dumped her at the shelter.
I tell everyone that adopts from me, that if for any reason, or no reason, it doesn't work for you, call me and I will come get the dog. I don't understand why she was surrendered
I never charge a rehoming fee and I take care of their shots, etc, before they go to their new homes.
I just want to keep these guys out of a shelter and she had ended up in just the place I'm trying to avoid.
Well, anyway, as I brought Penny (yorkie/mix.) out of the shelter and to a grassy spot, there was a lady with a box of dog treats just getting out of her car. I thought she was a volunteer, but she was there to look for a dog.
She and Penny fell in love right away and the rest is history!!
Quickest adoption I've ever done!!
Because of Sam, at the Franklin County Ohio shelter, Penny is safe and sound in a loving home.
He called me to let me know she was there. He called both my work and home #'s, Penny and I are very grateful to him.
Penny now has a better home than before.
Thanks Sam

MY BEST FRIEND IN THE WORLD PASSED AWAY ALMOST 2 YEARS AGO AND I MSS HER WITH ALL MY HEART.
I GOT HER FROM AN AD IN THE NEWSPAPER AND FROM THE BEGINING SHE RULED.
THE FAMILY THAT RAISED HER CALLED HER CRISSY, SHORT FOR CHRISTMAS.
CHRISTMAS BECAUSE THEY HAD FOUND HER AT CHRISTMAS TIME, TOSSED OUT ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD, IN THE SNOW AND COLD, JUST A LITTLE PUPPY.
THEY KEPT HER UNTIL SHE WAS ABOUT 7 MONTHS OLD, AFTER THAT I THINK SHE WAS JUST TOO MUCH FOR A YOUNG MOTHER RUNNING HER BUSINESS OUT OF HER HOME WITH 5 CHILDREN TO RAISE. THERE WAS ALSO AN OLDER DOG THAT DIDN'T LIKE THE PLAYFUL PUPPY.
SHE WAS BEAUTIFULLY MARKED WITH A BROWN SPOT OVER EACH EYE THAT WOULD SHIFT UP AND DOWN AS SHE LISTENED AS YOU TALKED TO HER, TRYING TO UNDERSTAND JUST WHAT THE HECK YOU WANTED OR WRINKLE THEM IF SHE THOUGHT SHE HEARD SOMETHING OUT THERE.
SHE WAS A BORDER COLLIE/SHEP MIX AND HONESTLY THE SMARTEST DOG I HAVE EVER HAD AND HAD THE SWEETEST SMILE FOR ME EVERY NIGHT. BORDER COLLIES CAN SMILE AND SHE WOULD SMILE AND HER WHOLE BODY WOULD TWIST UNTIL SHE LOOKED LIKE A PRETZEL. SHE WAS SO HAPPY TO SEE ME
SHE KNEW SO MANY TRICKS BUT SHE WAS ALSO THE MOST LOVING AND PROTECTIVE FRIEND I'VE EVER KNOWN.
I RENAMED HER DING.  DING DOG OR DINGY WERE MY PET NAMES FOR HER.
SHE PRETTY MUCH PICKED HER NAME.
I HAD TRIED FOR WEEKS TO GET HER TO ANSWER TO THE NAME HER ORGINIAL FAMILY HAD GIVEN HER, NO LUCK. SO, ONE DAY I WAS ONCE AGAIN CALLING AND CALLING HER TO COME IN, NO RESPONSE. FRUSTRATED...I SAID, "YOU ARE THE DINGEIST DOG I HAVE EVER SEEN." THE MOMENT I SAID DINGEIST HER HEAD AND EARS PICKED UP AND SHE TURNED TO LOOK AT ME.
I THEN SAID TO HER, "DING....YOU LIKE DING? OK, COME DING AND SHE HURRIED RIGHT IN!!!
I MISS MY FRIEND.
