Meet Fran

Fran has been at our house for about a week and a half. She was treated for Heartworm last week. After one month she can be adopted. Fluffy Dog gets dogs with Heartworm all the time and once they go through their treatment, there are no effects from this.

What a wonderful girl she is. If you can't tell from her photos, she is quite a beauty with eyelashes and all. She would love to play, but is on bed rest  until the end of this month because of her treatment. She's a good girl and potties and poops outside. Sleeps in her kennel at night and doesn't fuss. Loves to sit on the couch with us and snuggle for pets. It's been a real pleasure so far to have her here. I can't wait to let her play and take her on walks. She gets along fine with our dogs and they all eat together without issues. The only hard thing so far is that she didn't like the fireworks, but I can't really fault her for that.

I shall call her Pretty Face.

So Mr. Ben is perfectly content living here with us, but I'm sure he would really like to go home. He is an easy dog and would fit in with any family. He is very polite and will sit on the floor until you invite him to snuggle on the couch. Tonight he has been wanting to sit on my lap while I'm at the computer desk. Honestly a good companion, but not clingy.

Last night he rested nicely while receiving a good brushing. His coat is quite interesting. He has a very thick double coat like a Husky and really needs to be raked out. Since he is small though, it's very manageable. 

Ben gets along with my dogs just fine and wasn't bothered by the stray cat I found outside our back door. He is so easy going and just wants to be wherever you are. At the same time, he can be independent if necessary. A very well rounded personality and warms up to anyone right away.

I do sit for treats, but you have to ask real nice!

Benny and the Jets

This is Gentle Ben, or just Ben, Benny or Mr. Ben. Yes that story on his profile is true. Thank you to the city employee in Alabama who stepped in to help. As soon as I saw him I knew I had to help. So here we are. 

Ben has been with us since February 16th and his Alabama foster mom said he is perfect. That is so true. He settled right in with us. After two nights, I decided he didn't need to sleep in his kennel. He sleeps with our lab on the couch downstairs. I just love dogs that are Ben's age because they're past the chewing stage, past the hyper stage, don't get into things and are completely content just hanging out. Ben loves nothing more than a good snuggle. He can hardly wait to be invited up on the couch. A very important fact is that he has not had one potty accident in our home and when we take him outside he is quick to go.
Will you snuggle with me?
Now that Ben has been with for a few days, he received a bath. What a good boy he was and stayed very still even though he wasn't thrilled to be in the sink. He's pretty small so is very manageable both in the bath and outside etc. His skin was dry and flakey when he arrived so I gave him a deep condition and it seems to be better. He is also eating Taste of the Wild which will really help with his skin and coat.

This is not what I signed up for, but I do feel better.
Ben's grey face would lead one to believe he is a senior, but that isn't the case. He is such a little love bug and his personality is really what makes him great. He can't wait for his new forever home, but he is really happy to be wherever until his family finds him.
