Those of you who have been following me for a while will recall that I’ve been providing foster care for a puppy-mill dog from our local Humane Society. Here is a direct link to my previous post about her, from January 13, which gave a pretty good picture of her past before her rescue. Two people have been interested in her, but both of them have reconsidered. She has, I believe, come a long way while we’ve been together. She has gained a great deal of confidence with a kind person and a regular schedule (on which she can depend) of quality time together, warm meals at predictable intervals, walks outdoors soon after mealtime, and reliable hygiene and grooming activities. I returned her to the Omaha Humane Society’s foster-care specialists this morning, and was very sorry to part company with her, but folks who are interested in adoption of a pet with a difficult past will be able to meet and interact with her more readily, and I’ll be out of the country soon.
She is a very sweet and remarkably patient little dog, and I have great confidence that she will be able to adapt rapidly to a new home opportunity with someone who can provide the stability and patience necessary to help her to continue to develop the social skills she needs.
