It's The Little Things That Make Life Such A Big Deal!
All of my cats are rescue one way or the other. Beau was at a
friend's house after she rescued him off the streets. Thomas was wandering the neighborhood crying. When I called to him, he ran to us and has been with us ever since. Tugger was brought into the clinic where I worked. We were showing him and trying to find a home for him. The little girl in the room stepped on his tail, and he bit her. The local animal shelter wanted to euthanize him and check him for Rabies. I was appalled and said I would take him after he was quarantined for 10 days. Of course, he was fine. Baby came from my ds's house as she was often over-run with dumped kitties. He was actually born at her house from a very young mother who was on her own. Sparky was found in the middle of a four-lane street. We picked him up fearing that he was badly hurt. He only had a small scratch on his face. Once in my hands, he was mine. Claudia came to us at the barn, and Quincy was wandering the streets. I put Quincy in the outside pen with heated igloo, water, and food. I let him go the next morning. He walked away two steps and decided he had found his new home.
Our first Doxie, Heidi, was purchased from our younger dd's Sunday school teacher. The price was very reasonable. Punkin came from one of dh's co-workers who didn't want her anymore. Sophie also came from a local breeder who didn't really charge a lot for her puppies. Schatzi came from a friend whose male had fathered a litter. Maike came from Cannon River Rottweilers in the Seattle area. She was a well-known breeder, but charged less if you were willing to spay and not breed. She was flown to us from Seattle to Cincinnati.
Kaethe and Kenzi came from a good breeder in Dawson Springs, KY. She breeds for personality and also charges less if you intend to spay and not breed.
Evie was at a shelter in Hartford, KY. She and her brothers and sisters were rescued from a bad situation in the local area. My dd found her on FB. I filled out an adoption request, and she was ours. She has been a delight. She barks more than our Rotts did, but she is very sweet and active.
I would loved to have had another Rott, but we decided that a smaller dog was probably best for us at this age.
