We’ve been trying to find a friend for Lola for a while now and we’ve found him. This is Rocky and he’s officially ours as of tonight. Thanks to Maggie with Animal Rescue of Texas (who also happens to pitch in at the Doggie Zen Den) and was familiar with Lola and everything she’s been through so far.
I first learned about Rocky on a posting at the Zen Den and we arranged with ART to take Lola to meet him two weeks ago, and for us to foster him last week. They hit it right off and have really bonded. He’s about 2 years old, 49 pounds, part Australian Shepard (a big selling point for us), part Lab and has already had obedience training. He’s really helped Lola come out of her shell, and she’s been responding to me more which is a great feeling. Rocky has also helped Lola learn how to get put up onto the bed at night, so the 4 of us in the bed is quite cozy.
We really have lucked out to find 2 dogs that are the absolute right fit for us. Needless to say, we’re big supporters of Dog Rescue Organizations and Humane Societies.
I’ve posted some pics in Rocky’s gallery with more to come, I’m sure.
