As my regular readers know, we had a new dog named Dudley....well, he did not work out....we gave it our best effort, but...
every single person who walked in here had to be scared for their lives. He tried to bite almost everyone. It started out, just men were his targets but the longer we had him, he started turning on women as well. I was the only person he seemed to like.
So, we made arrangements with the rescue we got him from to take him back. We told them the history of the three months that we had him. The foster mom assured us he would be assessed before they would relist him. We returned him on Monday night. By Friday night, he had been relisted. We are not happy. They are using this aggressive dog as a money making project....ok, that is our words, but it sure seems that way!!!!
Anyway, I started searching again. I found several that interested me, but this one stood out the most. I showed my husband the picture & he thought he looked like a good one too!
We made arrangements to go meet him yesterday. The lady had called while we were on the way down. He had somehow hurt his nose & she was worried that would bother us. I said we were half way there, we would continue to come. She felt so bad about it, she reduced his adoption price, incase I have to take him to the vet. I think it is healing well already..
Anyway, we knew almost immediately that he was a good fit. He LOVES my husband...that is a huge plus...he loved taking a walk with us...that is huge! He was very good with all the people around their house. neighbor kids, neighbor teen boys, her one year old boy, etc...
We said we would take him! He has done SUPER!!!! He fits right in....we are certain he is a keeper!
I guess I haven't said his name, other than in the post title. His name is Elmo & we are going to keep that his name. She said when they brought him into their rescue, her baby had just learned the word Elmo, so that is what they named him.
You can see his boo-boo in the pictures, but the scab is already gone, so he is healing up.
