I just received word our application was approved! I paid the deposit and he is ours!! He is still in Mississippi, and will be transported in a week or so to us here in RI.
We went with the rescue group called "Pet MatchMaker". It is a network of foster families that care for the dogs...so there is no shelter. They have an office located nearby in Newport, RI. I'm happy the puppy has been in a home with people. His foster mom has also started crate training him. They gave me her email addy and I've already sent her a message.
And the story gets better....
My neighbors, who we are very close to, lost their 4 year old black female lab to bone cancer in July. They are ready for another, and they were just approved to adopt one of Blue's sisters! So, TWO puppies have been given forever homes. And they will grow up together, right next door to each other. Gibson is going to have fun with these two! I feel so good!!!!
Thanks, because your links led me to our new puppy!
That's awesome!!!!!! Congratulations to both you and your neighbour!
