Soooo, I'm going to stop gloating about my wonderful Gotcha Day. I'm going to dedicate this post to other Miniature Pinscher/Chihuahua mixed pups that look a lot like me. I want them to have their own Gotcha Day and bark about it on their own blogs.
At first I thought I would talk mostly about Dozer. He also looks like me and has been looking for a home of his own for a while now also. I regularly post a tweet about him getting his own home. He is in foster care with Rescue Every Dog (R.E.D.) in Port Angeles, Washington. Know anyone who wants to help a great guy? Here is his link on Petfinder:
Instead, I decided to dedicate the majority of my post today highlighting a dog in foster care with my rescue group - Northwest International Pet Rescue (NWIPR). They saved my life - literally. NWIPR is an all volunteer, registered Non-profit 501(c)(3) charity.
I pasted Ellee's bio from NWIPR's post on @Petfinder because there isn't much more I can add other than:
WHY DOESN'T SHE HAVE HER OWN HOME?
Hello, I am Ellee. I am so happy to be out of the shelter. I am a sweet, loving, elegant, and quiet little girl. I love to go for walks and I ride wonderfully in the car. I enjoy meeting new people and like to get pets and attention. I get along well with the other dogs in my foster home and like playing with the other dogs. However, I seem to prefer my humans. I am a loyal girl who enjoys sitting with my person and being next to them. I like to follow my foster mom or dad around. I am crate trained and I house trained. I am a spectacular companion and very loyal to my people. I am a gentle little girl with a great demeanor. I also did wonderfully in the bath and also for my nail clipping. I would do well in almost any environment (apartment, home with yard, etc) and with or without another dog in the home. Please consider adding me to your family.
Ellee is an amazing girl. She is incredibly loving and very sweet. She hardly barks and is just an excellent companion. She loves her people and enjoys meeting new people. She loves pets, playtime, and snuggles. She has wonderful house manners and is full of love for her family. She likes playing with the other dog in her home, but most of all her people. This girl is remarkable!
Ellee has arrived from an overcrowded WA shelter. NWIPR was asked to pull Ellee and find her a great home. We are so glad to have her join us in rescue.
Ellee is spayed/neutered, rear dew claws removed, microchipped, wormed, flea treated, current on DHLPPC, Bordatella, and Rabies.
NWIPR DISCLAIMER NOTICE
The information contained within this pet’s biography is based on observations from the current foster home. NWIPR is very honest about the pet’s behavior and needs (and provides up to date information), we cannot guarantee they will behave in the same manner in a different environment with new owners as individual household dynamics vary greatly.
Well, isn't she something? In a perfect world, both Ellee and Dozer would be living with me. I just about have Diana and Michael talked into adopting another rescue dog. In the meantime, please pass their information on to anyone who might be interested in doing the right thing for wonderful doggies in need.
You can have your own Sasha!
