“Adoption is not about finding dogs for families, it's about finding families for dogs” ~ Joyce Maguire Pavao (slightly edited by Just Jinny)
I've decided to start this little project here on my blog. I don't know how long it will last or how much impact I will make. But, I have a strong need to try and help in some way...any way. I am an animal lover (as if it wasn't obvious). I want all those animals out there to find their 'forever homes'. They deserve it. So, every Monday I'm going to pick a major city, find an animal organization, and feature some of their animals.
Today I start close to home in the Dallas, TX area. All of these dogs are available for adoption through the 'Education and Animal Rescue Society' or EARS for short. You can email them at firstname.lastname@example.org for an adoption application or more info.
This is Pogo! Doesn't he have a sweet smile? Pogo is a boston terrier/terrier mix, about two years old and weighs in at 12 lbs. I'd say he won't get much bigger than he is, but I'm no expert. He is very playful and loving. He also enjoys taking walks and playing with his toys. He is up-to-date on all routine shots, fixed, and house trained. Can't beat that!
Wagner is my name and loving is my game. Wagner is a Plott hound/Labrador retriever mix, about 1.5 years old. He's slender, but long legged which classifies him as a 'large' breed dog. This hunk of burning love is great with other dogs and cats. He loves to be inside with his people. He is crate trained but once adjusted to his new home can be left out of his crate. He understands basic commands like sit, stay, come, and lay down. Wagner is a great jogging buddy and loves going on walks or car rides. He is up-to-date on all routine shots, fixed, and house trained. Just a hound dog looking for a good belly scratch.
Meet Gage, a very handsome beagle/cattle dog mix. Careful of staring into those beautiful eyes or you will be lost! He is a young pup at just under a year old and tipping the scales at 20 lbs. Gage had a bit of a rough start with a family that left him tied up, which caused his collar to become embedded into his neck. But, that is all in the past and his wounds, inside and out, are healed up nicely. He is up-to-date on all routine shots, fixed, and house trained. Despite the rocky beginning, Gage is looking for love and his happily ever after!!
