George

Georgie Porgie, pudding and pie....


For those of you who did not hear my delighted tweets at the weekend, we have a new love and I'm infatuated. While we healed from losing our  beautiful One True Love we received a call from a Doberman rescue home that a delightful bouncing boy needed a new home. Nervously we agreed to an introduction and when this charming young man licked my face and sat at my feet expectantly, we knew that we had to bring him home. He was already leaning in for more kisses when I said 'Let's give this pup a good life'.

George is 13 months and has had a pretty tough time of late. He was found as a stray, frightened and underweight then placed in a police pound for weeks. In the pound, he was caged in a crate that was far too small for a growing Doberman pup and so he is a skinny and slightly balding wretch (the crate rubbed the fur off his tail).


However, we have him in the nest now and are enjoying learning this docile pup's favourite things. Thus far, these things include any food item, cuddles and soft gentle whispers in his oversized floppy ears.

What a cutie! I agree with Sophie up there, Dobies look better with floppy ears. German Shepards, not so much.

So glad you could find him a great home! I can't believe the police would treat him so poorly.

OH He's gorgeous!! I am so glad you are saving him! I'm all about the rescues! I had to put my "baby" to sleep in the fall (she was a rescued Labrador Retriever) and after a few weeks we rescued another pup a German Short Haired pointer (we think) He's such a joy! The rescued pups know how special you are!

A rescued dog loves you like no other! What a lucky guy to have a good loving home. When we rescued our dog she was missing half her fur and it took great faith to trust she'd get better - she too licked my face all over then she went over to my husband and sat and leaned against his leg. She told us that she needed us and we got the message loud and clear! Congratulations!
