I can haz puppy?

There I was on Sunday morning, totally exhausted and mildly grumpy about having to get up so early for work when all of a sudden these two cute puppy pictures pop up on my phone!

Kelly & Seven-Five

It was "Big Pull" day and the super-duper Alive/ One Tail at a Time tag team was spending the day at Animal Welfare League's intake facility and CACC saving dogs in memory of rescue advocate Josh Bouton.

With Nala-Bean's paperwork all finalized, Bill and I were open for business again and I'd already committed us to taking a foster as soon as a suitable match popped up in intake. Knowing that I was probably going to be taking a Big Pull dog, Billy's favorite Aunt started dangling tantalizing puppy pics in front of me and I was smitten.

I'm pretty sure that K had already earmarked this little peanut for our house but just in case I sent a text of my own to the intake coordinator so she knew that I was willing to take the puppy if, you know, I absolutely had to.

I'm thrilled to introduce our newest foster, Seven-Five! As you can see, the little nugget has severely deformed front legs and will almost certainly need extensive surgery and rehab but Fifty and his momma managed to inspire the crew at One Tail at a Time to give her a chance.

All in all, EIGHTEEN dogs were pulled into rescue on Sunday. I'd call that a pretty fantastic day's work - thank you One Tail at a Time and Alive Rescue!!!!

    1. You'll have to come over once she's settled in! She's at the vet for a couple more days and I'm just dying to snuggle that little puppy tummy.

  5. How wonderful!!! I love when rescues take on dogs who need additional medical care... Momma does intake for the rescue I came from and always pulls a "need help" type of foster when she can! Congrats to you guys for taking it on! I can't wait to read more on her!

    1. It's a challenge for sure, and I know why rescues often don't feel like they can take on the more medically challenging pups. Thanks to your momma for trying to go the extra mile too!
