Yesterday while looking at Facebook, I saw a beautiful senior dog who is up for adoption. I thought I recognized her, and sure enough, I featured Blossom on the Daily Dog Tag last April.
Blossom needs to be the only pet, which might be why she has been at the shelter for SEVEN years. Well, actually, she may sleep at the shelter, but she loves to go on field trips with shelter volunteers. She has a lot of good energy and loves to run. She would be a great running partner or adventure hound.
After seeing Blossom, it made me wonder about some of the other pets I’ve tried to help find homes. Many of them have been adopted, but I’m sad to say that others are still waiting.
Pilot entered the Regional Animal Shelter in Gloversville, New York, in March of 2014. Although he passed his Canine Good Citizenship test, Pilot needs to be the only dog. Thanks to Jessica Painter for Pilot’s photo.
Susan is one of the dogs I met at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary. She was shy, but I have high hopes that she’ll meet that special person and find a home soon. Surprisingly, Lincoln is still in the Sanctuary. If you need a walking partner and someone to snuggle with on the couch, Lincoln is your guy! Honestly, I recommend Lincoln if you are looking for a dog. (Photos courtesy of Best Friends Animal Sanctuary.)
I haven’t met Cowboy in person, but I am totally in love with his ears, smile, and happy eyes!
Both Lincoln and Cowboy are senior dogs and are free if adopted in January.
Chances are that if you’re reading this post, you already have a furry companion. However, I hope you’ll share Blossom and the other adoptable dogs with your friends and family. You never know if you’ll be a matchmaker!
