Between the holiday and the snow day, it’s been a long time coming – but finally we got to work with the new dogs from Calhoun County Humane Society! (Well, three are repeat customers). All but one are seniors, and all are sweet, special souls.
This eight-year old gray and white bully mix was surrendered after years of breeding. Rain is making up for lost time though – once she gets to meet you a couple of times, she’s all in for snuggles. She also loves toys and will plop down for a good chewfest with the nylabone.
Another eight-year old, this friendly girl has sadly spent six of those years in the shelter. Sapphire has an auto immune disorder that makes her skin flare up. You can see bald spots on her back and her chest turns pink under her brown and white coat. Sapphire is friendly and loves to talk. She may be asking for someone who can see that her beauty is beyond skin deep.
Tucker’s about nine years old and has a thick white and gray coat and a short tail. He’s a nice sized dog around 50 lbs. and isn’t fond of other dogs in his personal space. But he is getting much better about people in his personal space, especially if they have a nice treat or kind word.
Our youngest “senior” is seven year old Star. She has gorgeous reddish brown and white fur and looks like some Australian Shepherd or long haired collie. Star has been at the shelter since 2014. She is cautious and skittish of fast movements or scary new objects. We look forward to helping Star learn that new people and new things don’t have to be so scary.
Two year old Mia is the kid of the group, and has the high energy level to prove it! OMG she was so happy to run in the play yard and chase toys! Mia was surrendered in December and is doing great learning to trust people again. She is being treated for a skin issue that caused the hair around her eyes to fall out, but hopefully it will clear up soon.
