Arrival Story:
Idolon came from a Puppy Mill that was broken up just outside of Salem, IN. Initially, I did not plan on keeping her. She was one of the extras that had nowhere else to go, and being one of the few that actually liked people, we bonded on the way to drop off some of her siblings to a lady in Lexington. Her coat was in horrible condition, stained a sour yellow-brown from sitting in her own feces so much. Her tail was stringy, her ears too-large for her pointy little face. All in all, she looked more like an opossum than a puppy. She was not the prettiest puppy to look at, that was for sure. However, like the ugly duckling that grew into a swam, Idolon has grown into a beautiful little girl. She quickly proved to me that she had mad skills for soaking up knowledge. She learned tricks faster than I could teach them. She also developed a love for fetch, and will literally chase a ball until her paws bleed if not made to settle. We have done everything from obedience, to SAR and even agility. She has become my steadfast companion, my heart-dog, and everything I have ever looked for in a companion. I don't know where I'd be today if it were not for my little awesome opossum.

Idolon has Inflammatory Bowel Disease. This illness provided me with the worst puppy-hood I have ever experienced, as it was nearly constantly filled with vomiting and diarrhea. IBD is a very mysterious and finicky affliction. Luckily, with the right diet and vigilance over what goes into her mouth, Ido has been stable for the past 3 years. I dearly hope she thrives and continues to do so.
