GOOSEY HAS A NEW HOME
We met Goosey yesterday. No, I did not name this georgous black and tan GS dog Goosey, for any one that wants to know. Goosey was a turn-in and he has every characteristic that one would want in a family dog. He is super freindly, easily trained, knows some commands, housebroken (we think), good hips and conformation and a great face and coat. He is about 65 pounds and will get to 85. He is about a year plus and he is HW negative.
We had a prospective adopter see him yesterday and Goosey will be going home there for a test run on compatability with their dog. If Goosey does come back, he will be availbale but not for a few weks or so.
WE ARE DELIGHTED TO SAY THAT THINGS WORK WELL WITH GOOSEY WHO IS NOW CAOS AND HE WILL LIVE HIS LIFE WITH TWO TREMENDOUS PEOPLE. Here are their words this morning:
Hi Erik and Diane,
I just wanted to let you know that the introduction with Pearl and Caos has gone well. What a beautiful German Shepherd! I cannot believe that anyone could let any dog get in the condition that he is in without trying to seek help. He is such a sweet and loving dog and so happy to have a home.
We fed him his dinner tonight following the instructions that Diane gave to Doug and he ate it all like all German Shepherds eat at meal time. He is actually now sleeping next to Pearl and seems so content. I know that as each day passes he will get stronger and be the most faithful loving dog that anyone could ever want.
He is very intelligent and listens to commands. I know that as each day passes he will become stronger and will grow into the dog that he deserves to be.
It is obvious to me that all he ever wanted was a family to love him and I can also say that once he has become stronger he will be the best dog anyone could ever ask for.
We will never know where he has been or what he has been through. The only thing that we can control is where is goes from here.
I thank you both for all that you do because it is certain that if it were not for your foundation this beautiful german shepherd would have met his demise in a cold shelter in a strange place that he never belonged in. My only wish is that there were more people like yourself and Diane. I think the world would be a much better place.
