Puppy Update

Well, it seems the little guy decided to move on down the road, he was gone Friday morning. We did not hear anything during the night (we sleep with the windows open) so we don't think anything got him. My guess is that he went back to where he came from. We tried to get him to stay in the pasture with Buddy and hang out at the barn but he was so small that he could get through the fence. We did let Buddy out with him and they would sleep under the porch at night. The puppy had really bonded with Buddy too.

We reported him missing to the County Animal Control Officer and we filled out a missing dog report at the Animal Shelter in town. We also checked with all the neighbors. The County Officer called me this morning and no-one has turned him in, no surprise there! As cute and friendly as he is, if someone 'found' him they would keep him.

While we were at the Benson Animal Shelter Friday, we took a look at the dogs they had and one in particular caught our eye...Red, an Australian Kelpie. Red came to the shelter as a stray. After thinking and talking about it over the weekend, we went back today and adopted him. Unfortunately, we can't pick him up until next week. He can't get in to get neutered and get his shots until next Monday. If the puppy shows up or is found and returned, then we'll just have to have THREE dogs! :)

3 dogs is good, if the puppy comes back I think I would name him Footloose, LOL.

Good luck he was cute but the Kelpie will be a good dog.

Happy new dog!

Too bad about the puppy, he was a looker! Red looks like a great guy; I'm sure he'll love it at your place. We've always done rescues, too.

Awww to bad that puppy wondered off, he was adorable! But yeah for you on adopting another one. Glad this little one will get a great home!!

Oh good for you. Too many dogs in the shelters. I hope the little one comes back or at least landed somewhere safe. He was a cutie.

Red is a handsome boy! I'm sorry your little stray left. I hope you can find him or he found another good home. Kudos to you for adopting from a shelter!! It may not seem like a big deal to you, but it's such a good thing to do for the animals. :-)

Candy - 3 dogs! Shame about the puppy - hope he finds his way back. Cheers

Lynn said...

Very heartwarming post, lucky Red and I hope that the little guy is either tucked alongside another who cares or that he is off exploring and will find his way back to you.

Michelle said...

What lucky dogs that live in your area! He's really cute too.

Carolyn said...

Ok, I obviously missed the cute puppy post, but the other guy looks darned cute too! And you're right, if the puppy comes back...what's wrong with THREE dogs?

Little Homestead In Boise said...

Too bad about the little guy. Maybe a puppy room next time :) Crying all night can be so fun! Cute new dude...

Tanya Breese said...

Marie said...

Oh, I LOVE your new dog! Red looks like he is loving and sweet! I couldn't have ignored him either at the shelter. That's where we plan to get our next dog if we can ever have one again. I know you are anxious to get him home.

Awwww, congrats on the new dog! That is so exciting. Thank you for adopting him! I wonder if your other friend will make his way back to your place.

You're good dog lovers! ;-)

I saw that other puppy earlier but hadn't had time to comment. Now I'm sad that he moved on but also happy that you gave this little guy a new "forever" home.

edenhills said...

How exciting to have a new member to your family. I hope the puppy finds a good place to settle down.

Nancy said...

Congratulations Candy! He looks like he could use a good home like yours.

We had 4 dogs here (3 of them from Freecyle.com and one from our local animal shelter). All of them large dogs - just the right kind for a farm. Sadly, one recently died but we still have plenty of entertainment/company! You will enjoy your dogs too - all 2 or 3 of them.

Michaele said...

You can just tell he will be a smart dog and a good companion.
