URGENT: Help Brenda Find A Home

Brenda the BrindleI always say I'm not going to get attached and I always know I'm lying when I say it. This Saturday I went with our Animal Protection group to Petco to try to find some area dogs a home. Brenda, pictured below, is a one-year-old Shepard mix. VERY gentle and quite the trickster. We had a small box of treats sitting in the middle of the table and we'd s-l-o-w-l-y see this big nose rise up from the side of the table and then - blink! - the box was gone. She loves to be hugged and you would have thought she was in doggy heaven when we threw her a rubber ball that bounced. 

The bad news is that Brenda's time is limited. Very limited. As in, this week limited. The vet where she's at (good GOOD people) tries to keep animals as long as they can. But her time is up. This is one dog that, honestly, if I thought my allergies could take it, I might beg and plead with Blair for us to take home. Unfortunately, I went home in hives after my day at Petco. My dog allergies are significantly worse than my cat allergies.

If you can think of anyone who may be interested in a new best friend for life, please take the time to forward Brenda's picture to them, even if they're in another state. We're happy to arrange a transport. 

And for the love of God, please spay and neuter your pets. 

What treats? I didn't take any treats...

so cute.

I spent Saturday at Tanglewood attending Woofstock - a 'bring your dogs and hang out in the field while you listen to live music' day to raise funds for the Forsyth Humane Society. I've seen my share of 'take me home' looks this weekend!

I will post to my facebook in the event my NC friends might be interested. This is why I never work in a dog shelter. I would have to move to the country and buy a barn to house all my beloved dogs.

I of course want ALL dogs (and cats!) to find good homes, but some animals just stand out more than others for being special. Brenda is one of those dogs.

Spoke with vet again today and they'll keep Brenda as long as they have space. Just unknown when that might end.

Well, you know we love Brendas; both dogs and dames. Brenda looks like a nice dog. She reminds me of the dog owned by our little granddaughter, Rebeca, who lives in San Diego and spells her name in a funny way because she is named after an ancestor. Let's hope someone finds a loving home for Brenda. Thank you for sharing this with everyone. carolkenny.com
