Introducing !!!

It is with great joy, that I announce the new addition to our family!!!

Everyone please meet my sweet guy, (sheep dog mix)
His name will be either Charlie or Journey, we haven't decided yet.

This sweet guy was rescued by Golden Girls, from a very bad situation, but with lots of love and food I'm sure this guy is going to be wonderful!!

We will be picking him up some time this week-end!!!!!!!

(originally my co-worker was going to take him, but she has had a situation, that has prevented her from adopting him)

That's super news. I'm so glad you're adopting him. I vote for Charlie.

He looks like such a sweetie.

I'm soooo happy for you, another successful rescue/adoption by Goldengirls, she is amazing, the pet world is a better place with her around. She helped me place Whisper/skylar with Stacer.....I hope you're as happy with Charlie/Journey as Stacer is with Skylar.





p.s. I vote for Charlie also *L* a cutsie name for a funny face.

Ohhh are the kitties ever going to have fun with Charlie. Wonder how long it take them to let him know that CATS RULE a house, dogs come second.

LOL!!! Sega already "bi&ch slaps" the other cats, so I'm sure he'll have fun with the dog!!

Oh I have to go to petsmart for his food, the vet said he needs puppy for for now, as he is 30 pounds under weight:sad:, but it won't be long before that changes!!

My cats are used to dogs I have dog sat, as well as fostered, and Buster came over often. Although they won't like it at first, they will come around, and probably bug and pester him. Sega loves to sit on the diningroom chair and "Bi%%CH slap" everyone that walks by, so the dog will give him hours of entertainment!!

What a sweetie! Has his story been posted previously? It's hard to imagine such a sweetie getting abuse. He's going to be sooo happy with his own boy to love!
