   Leave a bone for Homer- Adopted!

Sunny (for his sunny personality!), Handsome and his current favorite, Homes

Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Quick Bio:
-mutt-pound dog-dog rescue

Being rescued. Rimadyl.

A broken femur that healed badly on it's own- OW!

Favorite Toy:
Bones, balls, blankets, kongs, yarn in the knitting basket...everything!

Favorite Food:
Any, but he's not "food motivated".

Favorite Walk:
He has an injured rear leg right now, so his walks are very limited

Best Tricks:
Being utterly adorable. Burrowing his nose into your lap. Convincing his weekend fosters to keep him longer.

Arrival Story:
Homer was named Chester and was in a very poor SC shelter. My dog is also named Chester & was rescued from SC- they look very similar. I am going to try really hard not to rescue all dogs that look like my Chester in SC and NC...

Homer had a bad case of heartworms and has an injured left rear leg. After he's healthy, I will adopt him out as a private rescue (application, adoption fee, home visit, references). He has a wonderful personality & is extremely affectionate & sensitive.

Forums Motto:
Homer got a home!

Favorite snack:
My foster's remote controls

Best new skill::
Gardening. OK, I just dig the holes- somebody else has to do the planting.

Remote controls destroyed to date:
5 (4 cable, 1 TV)

Leashes chewed through to date:

Favorite dominant girl friend:

Personal plea:
If you can help my buddies back in Mullins, please contact jennaluv2@yahoo.com. They need money to heartworm test their dogs, treat the ones who test positive and give HW prevention to those who are negative. And they need rescues and homes, of course...

Forever home location:
Richmond, VA

Dear Dogster/Catster,

Please release Gizmo and Luke from the dog/cat of the week spots. It was wonderful to read all about them but now I would like to see another dog/cat honored there. For all of our pals out there please feel free to copy and paste this message and spread the word to Dogster/Catster that we would like to see Gizmo and Luke set free. FREE GIZMO (and Luke)!!!!!
