Happy Tails: Fairfax

Just the other day, I was talking to someone who believes that the only dogs available for adoption are pit bulls, chihuahuas, and old dogs.  Of course I explained that simply isn’t true. To illustrate my point, meet Fairfax, an adorable Frenchie who was adopted at  a young age. Thanks to Carley Rehberg for helping me prove a point:  all kinds of amazing dogs are available for adoption.

From Carly:  “Fairfax is a fawn French Bulldog rescued from FurKidsRUs – French Bulldog Rescue in Oklahoma. His little back leg had some issues when he was born and he was considered a ‘defect.’ My parents, Judy and Robbie, rescued Fairfax – “bad” leg and all. These days, you would never know he had a little limp when he was a pup. My dad has a boat in Heathsville, Virginia. They spend the majority of their weekends there and Fairfax assumes the role of captain! He sits next to my dad while the boat is out in the bay, sits at the bow of boat when we’re getting ready to dock and catches some sun on the deck while we’re cruising. He has a TON of personality. To this day he still makes me nervous as he swiftly runs up the sides of the boat – but, I guess he has his sea legs!”
