A volunteer writes: Margie won my ‘best dressed’ award for the most beautiful multi-colored, shiny coat of browns, golds and bronzes. Stunning! A petite little girl, happy to be leashed for a walk and the chance to go potty, Margie was a bit uncomfortable in the street so after a short walk we head into the backyard. Off leash she showed me her ‘sit’, takes her reward treat super gently with the edge of her teeth, put her paws on my lap for some hugs and kisses, and as hard as she tried couldn’t climb onto the bench with her shorter little legs. Not for lack of trying though!! Her face is beautiful and she looks like she’s a painted portrait come to life! Alert, curious, snuggly, calm and gentle, she’s so easy to be with, and if you like kisses and cuddles, Margie is your girl. In her first group she greeted the helper dog politely and offered a few play bows, but after a brief time was ready to leave. When Margie and I returned to her kennel the door was mostly closed and she nudged it open with her nose and hopped right back in, turning to give me a smile and a tail wag! She’s a doll! Gorgeous Margie is hoping her new person or family walks in the door, points to her and says, “she’s the one”. We hope so too!!
Another Volunteer Writes: What a dog!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Can enough exclamation points stand in for adjectives like, “kind!” “loving!” “gentle!” “gorgeous!” “we’re-so-in-love-with-her!” Ok, the last isn’t an adjective, but in this spectacular houndy girl’s case it should be. She appears house trained and to know her basic commands. She loves laps, people, dogs, company, yet is quiet and content in her kennel. Margie is an absolute knockout of a dog in absolutely every single way, and we cannot wait to hear about her happily-ever-after where this was just a blip on the radar for her and all of us who love her so.
Our experienced volunteers will do their best to guide you through the process.
