Evie Comes to Mend a Broken Heart

Cuteness Overload!
Cuteness Overload!

Becky Harshman sent me a photo of this little girl, asking if we could rescue her.  I immediately forwarded the email to Debbie, who had adopted Maggie May a very short time ago.  If you remember, we found cancer in Maggie May during her spay.  Evie was found as a   stray in Selma, Alabama.  Stallone came from Selma as well, he was the puppy we all fought over to foster!

Wannabe Rescued  not only stepped up and got her out of the shelter, they also fostered her and got her spayed and all of her shots.  We’ve been waiting for about two weeks for Evie to arrive, and today was the big day!

In grand style of course, Evie was flown down from Alabama to Orlando by pilot, Pilot Ed Golly!  She rode shot gun the whole way! Debbie was there to meet the transport at the airport, and drove Evie straight to my house.

Now for one more appointment at the vet!  I wanted Dr. Oliver at  Newman Veterinary Centers to check her out from head to toe.

Evie now Hannah and Debbie!
Evie now Hannah and Debbie!

The first thing I noticed about Evie was how calm she was!  She took to my kids immediately, giving them kisses, and letting them pick her up.  Evie is a tiny little thing, just over 20 pounds.  She reminds me of our Nutella!

I wanted to say that Evie was a puppy, I kept looking at her cute little head and wondered if she was full grown or not.  Her paperwork said 2-3 years, but I questioned that!  I didn’t say a peep to the folks at the vet about her alleged age, I wanted Dr. Oliver to tell us how old she really is!

Debbie had been thinking of a  name for Evie this entire time of waiting on her arrival, and she decided to name her Hannah.  I love it.  We had Hanna examined, and Dr. Oliver believes she is about 10 months of age.  No more than 12 months, for sure!  Amazing!  But wait, there’s more.  This little girl checked out as completely healthy, not even a speck of dirt in her ears could be found!   Hannah is friendly, calm and is an absolute love, all she wants is to be petted and talked to!

Thank you Becky, Pilot Golly, and everyone from Selma for helping us rescue Hannah, and Debbie too!

  1. YES! I love seeing/hearing about happy endings. There’s too much heartbreak in the world, happy endings are so refreshing. <3 Keep up the hard work ya'll!

  2. I live in Orlando and have a Selma/Wannabe Rescue dog as well. Callie spent 10 months in the shelter before she was rescued. She is a border collie/lab and the sweetest girl. We are lucky to have her!

  3. Could be a purebred Sheltie.They come in a wide variety of backyard bred,and puppy mill looks.The kill shelter where I volunteered would get dogs the breeders did not want anymore as too different looking to sell,I suppose…
    Sheltie rescue said to ask yourself what else you see in the dog.if nothing,then it’s probably purebred.But that sheltie size and outline/temperment slim face..and perpetual popularity,make it very likely.
    rescuing locally,you get to see what tends to show up more than others,but it can always be a total suprise.
    Tibetan terrier anyone? That was the one that was the biggest mystery i ever ran across.adopted as a small bearded Collie,the IDed by dog people at a test for CGC as a large TT!!!! Living out a very long life now,very loved.I remember seeing ONE ad for TT in the regional paper once…no one ever knew where this dog was from(found in Xenia Ohio,about 1998.
