Thread: The first time you saw your dog...

  1. #1

    Default The first time you saw your dog...

    This is the first time I saw Hooch.
    He was in the pound for around 3 weeks, the shelter was full so they could not save him and take him out of the pound.
    Everytime I see this I feel like crying,.. He has such a happy personality that even there he was just his happy self.

    Thank god I saw his plea on the rescue page! I told my son he is not going to school, we are going to see a dog.
    We went to see him and came back home with Hooch sitting ontop of me in the car, squashing me and dribbling all over my clothes.
    He could hardly walk, he was very weak and under developed.
    Now he is a ball of muscles and happiness. He put on weight and is super healthy.
    He is the best thing we have ever done for our son and for us. He fits into our lives perfectly and we love him just as we love eachother.

    There are so many unwanted dogs in the world.. I see people coming to this site asking about getting a new puppy/dog.
    I wish they considered rescuing an animal that otherwise would be put to sleep just because they were born, at no fault of their own.

    SO have you got a picture of the first time you saw your dog? have you got a story about how you got your dog?

    The Internet has saved so many dogs from this fate.
    This is Buddys mug shot that I saw on a FB page of a rescue org (sorry cant find it)

    So here is the day he arrived in Sunny Qld.
    He jumped straight in the car ( I was ready to say "Up" or something like that)
    and made himself at home in the passenger seat. So I snapped this...

    Honestly if you show me a picture of a newborn.. or a new dog, the later brings tears to my eyes.
    How precious are they?? and so lucky to have ended up in loving homes.
    Love those photos!!
    I have to say.. Hooch sat on me the whole way back home and I was scared to move, I was abit scared of him LOL. Poor baby he couldnt steady himself in the car because he was too weak to carry himself. Hubby had to pick him up into the car.

    I thought you meant a newborn puppy for a minute there, hehe

    I dont know how Sean walked out of there with just one puppy - sweetness overload!
    So glad Hooch was saved by you, a family is not complete without a dog.

    I only have one child and for the longest time we wanted to get a dog but we travel alot and figured life was simple.
    It was a spur of the moment thing that I just decided it is time, my son is 9 and being an only child he could really use a companion.

    We actually saw a dog the night before - he was in foster care (I hadnt known about Hooch yet). It was a gorgeous Husky. But he zoomed in on my son and kept pushing him into a corner, trying to dominate him. My son was petrified of him.
    So we went home and decided maybe dog is not the best idea. The next morning while my son was getting ready for school - I saw Hooch and that was it. My son never ended up going to school - we went to get the doggie!

    Both Buddy and Mojo are gorgeous.. it makes me clucky for another one lol! sadly we have no room or I would have adopted/fostered more.

    Banjo's profile is still on Pet Rescue! Grace * On Trial *'s profile at PetRescue A friend sent the link to me. I called the number multiple times during the week and no one got back to me. Until I finally talked to the foster carer. It was a Friday afternoon. I booked a room at the YHA, picked my daughter up from school, threw some stuff in the car and drove to Sydney that afternoon! When we met her the next day, she was so wild that we could not get near her without risking injury for the first 10 minutes at least. We went for a walk with her and the carer. And then we took her home. It hasn't always been an easy ride (she STILL jumps up at people on a regular basis) but we love her to bits.

    My previous dog was pet of the week in the RSPCA newsletter. Typical birds eye perspective photo - I might have it somewhere on a CD somewhere. I had never owned a dog before and wasn't planning on getting one. But a neighbour's dog had died a few months earlier, so I dragged her to the RSPCA the next day to meet this dog. They had named her Lizzy. And she was the only dog there that wasn't barking her head off when we walked past the kennels. She just sat there, calmly looking up at us. We took her for a walk around - or I should say I took her for a walk because from the moment I saw her, I forgot all about my neighbour. An hour later, she was home with me. When I brought her inside and sat down on my bed, she came to lie on top of me with her whole body. As if to say: "You are now mine and I will never let you go again." And she never did. *wipes away some tears* I often thought "How could anyone let a dog like that go?!". Though in hindsight, she got me into trouble more times than I care to remember. But it was well worth it. She was one special dog and I never once regretted adopting her because it really felt like we were meant to be together.

    Probably....he was a bit unco as a little pup. It was as if his back legs belonged to some other dog who wanted to walk in the opposite direction !!
