Here is Hootie. He is a 5 year old Malamute we took in after a customer of ours came in one day asking if anybody could help her with a pup. Seems her neighbor was going to jail for drug trafficking and asked her if she knew anybody who could take a 6 month old dog. She was moving into an apartment and couldn't do it, so she hoped we may know somebody, or be able to ask around, because we spoke to lots of people every day. He was on a short rope with no house, and she was throwing kibble to him for the time being. I went with my daughter that day to bring him home on a temporary basis and he never left...

He's beautiful, Rock. All of our dogs have been second hand, rescues, found or pound puppies.

That photo is in the summer after months of shedding and brushing. He looks a lot different this time of year.

I have a girlfriend in VA who will only adopt rescue dogs. Right now she has a blind sheep dog that was going to be put down. He had worked all his life and then went blind and couldn't do it anymore.

How timely that this thread got bumped again. As it happens, we just got home an hour ago from adopting a rescue dog. This is Abbie, a Basenji and Yellow Lab mix, and yes, she is every bit as sweet as she looks. Upon meeting me for the first time, the first thing she did was plop down next to me and give my ear a good washing.



This is our other dog, Clover, who is also a rescue.

What pretty dogs, Steve! I'm glad they have found a good home.

They're adorable, Steve! Congrats! Where are the cigars?

No cigars, just a couple of cigar-shaped rawhides, I'm afraid.

That works. Basenjis don't bark, I've read, they kind of chortle. Does Abbie bark?
