OMG, puppies!!! It's time once again to take a little break from jewelry, in order to introduce my Delicious Pupsicle of the Month. To see all past and current Pupsicles, click on that link up above.
This time I just have to feature two critters. See, I had Stitch all picked out as November's poster boy - but then met Albert and fell in love with him and with his story. So here goes.
He is a young, happy-go-lucky Mini-Pin-Chihuahua mix. He's been hanging around with us for a while now, and that's just wrong! Here's the thing: he looks like kind of a tough guy, with a little barrel chested macho stance...but it's a complete fake-out! He is a kissy, cuddly darling. I have it straight from Dawn, who runs the Fur Baby shelter - Stitch is not an Alpha dog of any kind. He never gets into a tiff, never causes her a care, never gets in trouble even when there's peer pressure to hang out on street corners and smoke Kools. He loves all creatures great and small, and wants to occupy your lap forever.
I have seen him reach out again and again with a little paw to all the kids at our adoption events. A fantastic family dog who will fit right into your life. He's got plenty of energy if you're a fast-paced household, yet he's super mellow and chill, and would be just as happy with a slower lifestyle.
I love this guy so, so much! Come and get him!
Oh, man, this is a sweet pup. A long-haired dachshund! Look, is he not cuter than cute?
A couple of weeks ago, Albert and his best friend (another doxie) were relinquished to us by a veteran who needed to move to a retirement care facility, and could not bring his dogs. The other dog was adopted right away. And now here is Albert, without a home, missing his owner and best friend, and ready to come into your life like a little hairy wienershnitzel of love.
He's probably 8 or 9 years old, which I guess technically means he's 'senior.' But a small breed like this has a good long lifespan, 15 years or so. He's in the prime of his life. He's so peaceful and sweet-natured and sad. You need him! And he really needs you.
As part of my Pupsicle Action Plan, I will contribute $75 toward the adoption fee of any Pupsicle of the Month. Yay!
And here's something new: if you live anywhere in California, Nevada or Arizona, I will bring the pup right to your door, provided you can get a long-distance approval from Fur Baby. Yay again!
