I was called and emailed by the shelter near me. They just got in a Pekingese-- an owner turn-in. He was a little older, they thought about eight. (He may be a little older.) They wanted to know if we could help.
I went over to visit with him, took him to the enclosed visiting area. He was whining some-- he didn't know why he was there. I didn't know either.
He kept going to the gate, and whining, as if he was looking for his owner. I just kept talking to him.
I couldn't take him that day because he had to be neutered first. I hated leaving him-- it was so hot, but the shelter has a lot of big doors that open (like giant garage doors) and they had huge fans going. He would be fine.
He posed for me so I could get a good picture before I left. "Don't worry! I'll be back!"
I brought him home on Monday after his neuter and dental. I am never sure how a new foster will be with my crew here, but he was completely non-aggressive. He also seems to be house-trained-- YIPPEE!!
And he's happy! He went to find a toy and found one no one else plays with. I have a LOT of toys! This video is dark, but you can see how happy he is: Click here: YouTube - sammy1
Yes, he has gotten all these out-- plus others than squeak and roll.
