From the e-mail I got: My co-worker found this beautiful girl and her two puppies on the street in the Redland with a rope tied around her neck. Her babies are being fostered by her neighbor and she is fostering mom. She has a ton of animals (dogs, cats, horses etc.) and would love to find her a forever home. She is housebroken and gets a long with other dogs and people. She looks like a Keeshond mix, about 20 pounds. Contact: Marlene Pendergast, (305) 532-3481 ext. 2230.
Peanut, a small female beagle mix, found on March 30th. She is approximately 1 1/2 - 2 years old and weighs 19 lbs. She is a very sweet and timid girl who is looking for a good home. Peanut does not require a lot of exercise and is very content to be a laid back lap dog. She would be perfect in an apartment going out for leashed walks or playing supervised in a home with a yard. She gets along with other dogs but would be fine in a single dog home as well. Peanut is crate trained and settles down nicely during the day in her crate. She is also fully house trained and walks very well on a leash. We are in the process of teaching her basic commands and she is already getting the hang of "sit" and "lay down".
Peanut has already received her first set of shots and has been treated for fleas and worms. Peanut has tested positive for heartworm but we have found a vet who is willing to treat her at a highly discounted cost and we will be funding that treatment. The only requirement for her adopter would be keep her calm (no running or walking off leash) for the six weeks after her treatment and to have her re-tested at the end of the treatment cycle. Because she is so young and she is not showing any other symptoms the vet expects her to live a long and healthy life as long as she is given her monthly heartworm preventative (which all dogs in South Florida require). If you think you would be interested in meeting her or know someone who might be, please pass along my contact information. Anna - 305-213-9298 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here I am back again, it is me Frankie. I knew it was too good to be true. I had found the perfect family for me. Two parents, two children and a kitty to be my pal. I know I am a little older, but I thought that the stars were finally shining on me. I had hit the jackpot. Chopped chicken for dinner, loveable children that shared their beds with me. Parents that were always home because their work was something that they didn't have to leave the house to go to. Walks and car rides and mostly , so much love. I couldn't keep up with all of the kisses. They even fed me Doritos. It was two months of heaven on Earth. And now: It feels like I have been through an earthQUAKE. One morning I woke up and I thought it was going to be another heavenly day with my people, and I found myself being placed in a car with my dad. Everyone was surrounding me and crying and giving me kisses and I was kissing them back. I didn't know that these were the last kisses I was ever going to get from my mom and brother and sister. My dad brought me to a gas station and put me into another car with a nice lady that I remembered from my old shelter. He gave me a big kiss and hug and then we pulled out of the station. I remember looking back at him and he was crying. We drove for many hours until we reached a familiar place. It was my old shelter. The place that I was originally taken to after I lived two years at a construction site. Everyone came out to greet me and gave me lots of hugs, but I don't want to be here. I miss my family so much. And I hate living outside again. I loved sleeping at night all curled up with my best friend brother in his bed. It appears that that was the problem, he evidently was allergic to me and now I can't be a part of their family. This wasn't my fault. They all loved me so much. I would love another chance to have a forever home. I am only 6 years yo ung and get along with everyone, dogs and cats. I weigh about 40 lbs and am perfectly house broken. I am back at Pet Rescue in Miami. Please don't make me stay here a long time again! Call my Best friend Kathy if you are interested in meeting me and taking me home to be a part of your family. Her number is 305-401-4693 and her email address is email@example.com.
