The last time Deuce went home I shed a tear or two.
After many months of weighing up the pros and cons we have finally decided to look at adopting a little rescue dog to add to our family and keep Zack company. We are taking our time to find the right fit and may foster one first. I am excited, nervous all at the same time but I think Zack will love it to have a friend forever instead of only for a week here and there.
It will be an opportunity to put my training to the test again as I am sure any rescue has "some baggage" which may need to be worked with.
I have my eye on a little dog that comes from a hoarding situation which is really sad and she looks like she needs some TLC and some confidence building. It is a draw to me as my old Cavalier Cassie that I took in as a 4 year old came from a similar situation and was very scared of people and shy. She would have panic attacks when we went for a walk but she settled down well. My other Cavalier Riley that I had at the time was so outgoing and friendly to everyone Cassie soon realized that people and the world was not a bad place. He helped her out lots.
Hopefully, Zack being like Riley, would help the new dog through her transition period. Anyways, I hope we do manage to foster her and see if we can help. We have put in an application, just not sure if we are one of many who applied.
I will keep you posted.
