Thread: Front Street Dog shelter

  1. #16
    Unfortunately, that just wouldn't be in the cards. The one KNOWN issue she has is toy aggression with other dogs. (Not furkids, just other canines).

    She's excellent with kids, when they were playing outside she immediately backed off of whatever frisbee or ball the kids were playing with her with.

    Cat tested

    Great news. I love that you are going to have another doggie in your house. There is nothing like it. I assume the new pup has been kitty tested? Can't wait for the new photos and stories.

    So sorry to hear about Lady. She was loved, for sure.

    Don't forget to keep us posted. You know how we all love pictures!

    Okay, for starters THIS WAS NOT PLANNED!

    I just wanted to scritch some ears.

    That's all I wanted.


    LOH has passed her audition.

    Angel comes home Friday. She hasn't been Kitty tested, but both cats have their claws and more vertical than Angel has. Her name will be Angel, not Angel eyes, because it fits with the progression of dog names.

    Gracie was a klutz, Lady wasn't a Lady....and now Angel, because while she has a sweet smile, has a somewhat bent halo.

    It never is - that's the beauty of it.

    And that's why I couldn't go near a shelter or the Petsmart adoption center after I lost Sparky! Besides, Miss Myndi would NOT have approved.

    Congrats. May Angel have many happy and healthy years in your care.

    Hello, Angel! It is very nice to meet you this afternoon! I like your happy face! Do you like to receive petting? There is this place called Thursdays that I visit sometimes where I can be with friends, drink tea or coffee (or sometimes something stronger) and give petting and lovies. (Well, virtual petting and lovies anyway) I am sure your young humans will help you play with toys, serve you a yummy treat and maybe take walks around the block or longer! Welcome to PT!!!!!
    Yikes! I've been Boo'd ... right off of the stage!
    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

    Welcome to PT Angel! Your "bent halo" will just add a little character, I am sure. You couldn't have found a more loving home so enjoy it!

    I'm very happy you're giving Angel a new home. I know she'll be much loved. She's a beautiful girl, even if her halo has a bit of a tilt. I look forward to meeting her on Thursdays.

    Don't know if she'll be a couch cuddler, but I'm sure with a little training she'll do just fine.

    The big problem with getting a shelter dog is sorting out potential from the kennel behavior. After a session outside with the kids, she calmed down enough to actually sit and accept some scritches, to there is the potential.

    Well then, guess I'll have to stop by Thursdays with my sneakers on, grab Angels leash and take her along for my 10 km run!

    That sounds like it would be right up Angel's alley!

    Angel is not a pittie, she is a Boxer/Bulldog mix, and she's not home quite yet, but a work in progress! The Lhasa mix was just a "therapy" visit - he's smaller than Patch (resident rambunctious kitty at the house) and so not a good match for that house!
