Pup needs a Sponsor“This little girl was found alone on the side of the road. She was flea infested and starting to get thin so I’m thinking she was dumped. She’s doing great so far. We have gotten her 1st set of shots and de-wormed her. We are quarantining her for 2 weeks and getting her 2nd set of shots before we transfer her.”

We are still waiting for a Virtual Foster to sponsor this pup’s medical care, but she was transported to TDL yesterday, thanks to Jeff Bennett, Becky Harshman and our Sarah White!

Is she an Aussie?  She sure looks like one, but I noticed her legs are short and stocky, her feet a big too!  She has the most awesome temperament, considering she was abandoned at such a young age.  She is fearless, friendly, happy, social, is great with other dogs, and loves to play!

Today is Anita Barber’s birthday, and when asking her for name ideas, Anita asked us to  name this little girl NiNi!  I asked why, and she said that’s what her nieces call her, Nini!  I think it’s adorable!

NiNi is a hit!

So, is Nini a Basset-Aussie?  A Jack Russell-Aussie?  I’m not sure, and I won’t know until she grows a bit more, but she is precious!  My kids just love her!  She’s doing great in her crate, she cries for a little bit and settles down.  I will be providing daily updates!

You can see more photos of her on Facebook.

Update:  Nini was adopted by Loryn of Kissimmee Tuesday.  It was love at first site.  Loryn has been following TDL for quite a while, but the time was never right… until now!  Woo hoo!

    If you can send some form of invoice to me, my boss, Michael Scoma, is willing to sponsor this puppy. Once I get the invoice, I can paypal the payment right away. He also asked about her eyes and indicated he may be interested in adopting this dog when it becomes available.
