Hey! so, Mom & Dad usually bring stray dogs into our home. They like to help dogs in need, find them new homes, and generally keeping them off the streets which are really nasty for a dog.
So far they've rescued and found homes for: a yellow lab named Rocky; a poodle, Daisy (who we were lucky enough to reunite with her family); a labrador mix, Nutella; and a wirehair mix, Moka. I've also enjoyed having those dogs as guests in our house; I play with them and reassure them that they're safe and things will change for the better for them.
Mom & dad have always struggled with choosing to give the dogs away rather than keeping them; they've reasoned that, while we have room for another dog (I'd love it! and Bela doesn't care too much), it's better to keep that slot "open" by finding appropriate homes for those dogs and still having the chance to have a guest dog-in-need every once in a while.
However, it seems that mom found a dog that would be hard to place anywhere else; and so she's strongly considering adopting him. Turns out our vet found a Bouvier wandering the streets and took him in; but she needs to find a home for him. Being an old and large dog, the vet says it's usually hard to place those.
So mom was considering adopting this dog; she went to take a look at him and that was it, now she's in love with the Bouvier and so there's a real chance we'll be having a third dog in the house.
The only question remains, will Bela and I get along with him? Maybe! we'll probably meet the Bouv on sunday; I'm reserving my opinion until I meet him.
Until then, be seeing ya!
