Petfinder Adoptable Pets for Super Dog Sunday

January 19, 2013

Ready to meet some fantastic pets ready for adoption on Petfinder.com? Here are some special cuties that are ready to go for Super Dog Sunday:

Heather Samantha

Sweet, sweet Heather lost her owner to cancer.

Sweet, sweet Heather lost her owner to cancer.

She is the talk of the doggie park. Full of life and charm. She loves her daily trips to the park and gets along with everyone. She plays with her foster brother and lets him know that she is the senior in the pack. She has an instant alarm clock and will give out a short woof when it is time to get up. She loves her two cat mates and enjoys playing with her squeaky toys. Heather has a beautiful coat and is so willing to please. She is on a green bean diet to take off some weight but with the exercise plan she is on will have the weight off in no time.

Eunice

Eunice is a sweet girl who looks older than she is.  She was rescued from a local shelter and is a wonderful, gentle giant.

She is good with other dogs, but needs a home without cats.  Eunice prefers to spend her time just lounging around. She is a true couch potato. Eunice is around 3 years old and is a big girl weighing over 96 pounds. Eunice came in with some skin issues, probably from fleas. With a good diet and some tlc, she will have a beautiful coat in no time! For more on Eunice, visit her profile page on Petfinder.com -  http://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/24647351.

Domino

Domino is a handsome guy with deep chocolate brown eyes.

A real sweet heart this guy loves his people and is very happy being an only dog. He has on occasion gotten along with other dogs, but we feel it would be best for him to be an only child. He’s a big guy who isn’t going to stay put in an unfenced yard and when he gets out, small animals including cats are not safe around him. For more information about Domino visit him on Petfinder.com - http://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/23230665.

Layla

Layla is an Olde English Bulldogge.

We were asked to take Layla in because she was too much for her family to handle.  She is around 60 pounds and about 1 year old.  She is a very large puppy!  She loves to play and will need exercise and love!

Update on Our Search for Getting a New Dog

January 6, 2012

We are still in the process of getting a new dog. We have looked at a few at the Lawrence Humane Society, with a Aussie/Border Collie rescue group, and online at PetFinder.com. While the Lawrence Humane Society was willing to adopt out the same day, we did not find a dog that was right for us. The Aussie/Border Collie rescue group had a great Border Collie named Nick but he was a bit bigger than what we wanted. And we have applied to a number of rescue groups on PetFinder but they are still reviewing our applications and so we are still waiting to hear back from them.

This process is taking longer than I thought. But in a way I am grateful. My husband related it to buying a new house. We have to look at several so that we can make sure we get the right one. And even though many of the rescue groups are taking a long time with their review process, I am glad that they are going through so much work in order to make sure their dogs get into the right family.

This weekend, we will be visiting other animal shelters in the Kansas City metro area. And hopefully we will have a chance to meet some of the dogs we put applications in for.

I will keep you posted on the progress and share lots of photos when we add a new member to our family.
