If you have followed the Daily Dog Tag for a little while, you know I am passionate about dog rescues and sharing adoptable dogs’ stories. I try to participate in a special weekly blog hop that is hosted by DogsnPawz because every time we share an adoptable pet, we may be helping that animal find a new home.
Kirsten Krupps from Shutter Hound Pet Photography can attest to the power of social media. Facebook led her to adopt Michael, one of the cutest doxies ever!
From Kirsten: “This is my rescued pup, Michael! We adopted him May of 2013 from Foster Pet Outreach in Peoria, IL. He popped up on my Facebook feed and I just knew he was meant to be part of our family. I applied immediately, met with the foster family, and shortly after Michael was ours! He was originally named Mocha and the former owner thought he was just too much to handle. This is definitely not the case! He is such a laid back sweetheart! He fit right in with our other two doxies and we are so thankful he found us!
He’s tricky to take photos of, that’s for sure! He immediately wants to run up and give me kisses and it takes a while to get him worn out enough so he’ll sit still. This was a quick session from when I first got Michael and took him out on our back deck. We had lots of playtime and it was still impossible for him to sit still for more than a few seconds. He’s gotten a little bit better now, but he’d still much rather sit in my lap and cuddle than have his picture taken.”
Michael should win an award for best tail!
