Little Amy (aka Rizzo!)~Adopted

I was in Nashville at a trainers conference when a text came across my phone. There was a picture of a frightened, beautiful, little pup. The text read…”owner surrender, relined for in the morning…can you save her please?” Amy Adams is one of the angels that looks over the Clayton Co. shelter. She is an aussie owner and watches for them in the shelter. I texted back that I was out of town and had no foster or funds.

Amy began raising funds for this little girl on their Facebook page. She texted back at 11pm that she had gotten full sponsorship for this baby to get her out of the shelter. Sadly, I still had no foster..without fosters we can’t save dogs no matter how much money is raised in their behalf. It is one of the frustrating things we deal with in rescue.
I texted Amy and asked her to find someone else…nothing I could do…I had no place for her to go.
Please she said, she is so scared and confused, she doesn’t deserve to be here…

None of them do, deserve it that is. The volunteers don’t deserve to have to look in to their faces and not be able to offer hope. The shelter workers don’t deserve to have to euthanize these babies every week, they don’t deserve to have to hear the same excuses over and over. Rescues don’t deserve to have to go to bed with the helpless, hopeless feeling they have when they desperately want to save these dogs and have no fosters or funds. But it happens anyway.

I sent out a 911 email to those who had fostered for us asking if anyone could take her.  Amy texted back and said she could keep her until I found a foster…just couldn’t let her die.  Okay! Get her! I texted back.

So volunteer Angel Amy tucked her into her car and took her home, she would at least sleep without fear tonight. So I named her Amy after her angel who fought so hard for her.

Amy is a 6 month old aussie/border collie pup who is full of life and energy! She is house trained, crate trained and just a sweetheart!

Amy is looking for a home where she will receive lots of attention, maybe have another pup or dog to play with. She would like to have some bones to chew for her teething.

Amy prefers a nice soft bed in her crate to sleep on. She already walks great on a leash, responds immediately to commands, sleeps thru the night, and plays great with my pack of austrailian shepherds. She would prefer a fenced yard so she can run and get her puppy joy out, but would be ok with out it. She is calm in the house for a pup. Readily taking cues from her pack.

Her favorite meal is Andi Brown’s Spots Stew made lovingly by her foster.
Believe it or not she rides great in the car and is always eager to jump in. Oh yeah, I almost forgot, she loves to watch American Idol and The Voice! a real music lover!- vicki
