Blake Sheltie~Adopted

a little needy and affectionate... just like Blake!

This little man also comes from Alabama. He has a home here in Florida waiting for him. He arrived last night. Appears he was purchased for the kids, but the kids didn’t play with him. Unfortunately, he has a mark on his neck… I guess he was tied to something outside and ignored. Laura says he’s very matted, but I’m sure our Serena Drake will take care of him! The mark on his neck has scabbed over, Laura says it doesn’t hurt him. He’ll be wearing a harness for a while! He’ll be seeing the vet next week for a complete physical, including a heartworm check and neuter. He’s described as a Velcro dog… geez, I wonder why!

His photos can be viewed on Facebook.

09/01/13 Update:  Blake is awesome!  His coat is severely matted, and discolored from exposure.  He’s not sure about coming into the house… probably because he was never allowed to!  He’s very quiet in his crate, he has great manners, and everyone just loves him!

09/06/13 Update: Blake was adopted yesterday by Beatrice of Port St. Lucie. Beatrice emailed me back in February about adopting a dog. The dogs she was interested in had already been adopted, or they were dogs with issues. After talking to Beatrice for hours, and learning more about her, I realized that she was great at taking broken dogs, and rehabilitating them. As a matter of fact, the more I talked to her, and we shared our experiences, Beatrice reminded me of myself!

Blake, now Prince

One day, I asked her bluntly, “Isn’t it time you adopt a great dog… a perfect dog? Isn’t it time you enjoy your dog and get a dog that you don’t have to fix?”

I don’t think she expected my candidness! Impatient, she searched other rescues, and actually adopted a dog. I believe that night, the dog bit her! She was heartbroken, but had to return the dog. She described in detail the condition of the rescue, it was appalling. I asked her again to be patient. Yet every time I posted a new dog, she’d email or call, asking if she could adopt.

You’d think I’d just say yes, right? Well, I did but then Beatrice injured herself and the time just wasn’t right. Two months later, Becky sent me a photo of little Blake Sheltie, and he was perfect!

Can we go now?

From the moment Blake became a TDL dog, I was asking questions about his temperament… he was a fit!

Needless to say, I’ve been sending Beatrice daily updates on Blake, and when she arrived yesterday, she was already in love with him. “All of my friends are anxious to meet him!”

Ready to go home now?

Blake’s new name is Prince (fitting). And I even though I know Beatrice isn’t going to really spoil him rotten… he will be spoiled!

I’m hoping this little Prince goes through Canine Good Citizenship Training and Certification. He’s that perfect!

Beatrice has been sending me updates, it’s all good!  Prince has convinced the cat that they are truly allowed on the bed!

Being a TDL dog ROCKS!
