Arrival Story:
My husband and I were taking a road trip the the Mtns of E. TN . Traveling on top of a ridge, Walden's Ridge (hence the name), old gravel road with NO houses around we happened upon this little puppy on the side of the path. As we passed he took off after us yelping as if to say (get me, help me, STOP). So we kept driving cause we already had 3 young kids and 2 dogs at home and we didn't think we wanted ANOTHER pup. We went around 3 or 4 corners, all the while I'm looking back at this pitiful little puppy STILL running after us. I gave my husband a pitiful look and he hit the breaks and said that he couldn't take it anymore that we had to get the puppy and take him home. That road is NOTORIUS for people dumping dogs/puppies after the new has run off. We got him home and got him food and water. He was all dusty and dirty from the woods and gravel road and his belly was swelled up huge. I went and got him some dewormer and some good puppy food. We gave him a SOAKING bath, flea and tick meds, food water and shelter. Walden is the BEST PUPPY I've ever seen. He's gentle with the kids, stays on yours heels and has an awesome personality!!! Although he does appear more scared of men, and when you reach down to pet him from a standing position he cowards. So we suspect the he's been abused. Him and the Girls (Maggie and Kona) get along great. They seem to understand that he's a puppy. Now we have 2 daughters and 1 son, 2 girl dogs and 1 boy dog. Our family is now complete!!! And we didn't even know it was missing anything until Walden came into our lives.
