Arrival Story:
I came to my family as a foster dog in October 2006 from a shelter in Kansas. All the toes in my foot were broken and I had a large sore on my leg. My foster mom and dad took me in so I could heal and get some help. I hated my cast and hated going to the vet. I tried chewing those darn casts off but they'd always have another one put on. It was awful. My Mom thinks my foot was caught in a trap that some mean person put out. I really don't remember cuz it hurt so much. When she first got me the vet suggested the cut my leg off or do something called euthanasia. Both sound awful, but my Mom said absolutely not. By early spring I'd chewed off quite a few casts and I think my Mom was getting pretty frustrated cuz it cost a lot of money. So they took me to another vet who kept me for 10 days in something called a spoon cast. And guess what, when I left there, I never had to wear a cast again. I can jump on my back legs especially when it is treat time. My foster Mom said she liked me so much she wanted me to stay. So here I am, living with Geo and Cruiser and all the other foster dogs she takes and helps. I guess I'm special because she hasn't kept any others. I love being outside and hate kennels and car rides. Cars make me think I have to go to the vet and I just can't deal with cages. So I stay outside a lot but I don't care. I have a little problem controlling going potty when I'm in the house. But when it's too cold I'll stay in a kennel in the house. We have a lot of room to run at our house and I love exploring and wrestling with the other dogs. I also have a problem with these sexual urges even though I'm neutered so I get in trouble for something called "hunching". I don't know why the other dogs don't like it. But I've got a great home and love my mom and dad. I'm so glad they saved me from that awful shelter and saved my leg.
