No one said it would be easy, they only said it would be worth it.
Meet Albert! Albert was rescued along with litter mates and a few other stray puppies when they were found abandoned on the streets. It was during a very cold time and the rescuers knew that if these puppies were not rescued they would likely freeze to death if they didn’t starve to death first. Luckily they were able to get them all off the streets and into foster care. Albert is a sweet puppy who would love nothing more then to find a forever home. We are looking for a home that understands the responsibilities of owning and raising a puppy. Albert is patiently waiting!
"Hi Melody! Thanks for checking in. Albert (now Starsky) is settling in well. He’s a sweet, playful, and smart boy. I’m so in love with him, and of course want him to become a permanent part of the family. Things that are going well: potty training (almost no accidents inside), being in his kennel, socializing with other pups, sleeping (he doesn’t wake me up before morning...knock on wood!!) He is a good eater, he is learning new commands like sit, down, gentle, drop it, stay, and come. We went to the vet today just for a check up, and got a clean bill of health. He was scared at first, but was so well behaved during his check up! We’re going to classes and puppy socials together, and he gets along well with the other dogs. We are still working on not chewing things that are not toys (like slippers), not chasing our chickens, not eating poop, confidence around people (he seems to be quite scared of men), and learning to be on a leash (he does not like it). He’s still pretty shy and gets a little anxious at first in new situations, but as soon as he gets comfortable it’s hard to get his attention back! But we are both learning :) Thanks again for your help thru this process and helping me to find Starsky. He is very loved. Best, Whitney"
If you have extra time on your hand and would like to help please consider volunteering! Rescue groups need dedicated volunteers to help with events, fundraisers, home checks, transports, etc. All of these things help enable the rescue to expand their network and help more dogs in need.
