|So after a few months of searching for a medium sized female dog that could keep up with Cobain but play with Oz ...we finally found our newest fur family member!
Rigby (formerly Jorja) came to us from the Toronto Animal Services. She came to the shelter as a severely emaciated, skittish stray. She adopted out once for TWO days and returned before I finally saw her. (As much as I hate to admit it, I'm kinda glad things didn't work out in the other home )
We drove out an hour to check Rigby out. She was generating TONS of interest as it was her first time in PetSmart, and come on, just look at her
Cobain was his typical snob self upon meeting her.
So much so that they almost did not adopt out to us.
After extensive persuasion and explanation of Cobain's jerk personality I was given the adoption papers.
The ride home was a long one. Rigby contained in the back, whining.
Cobain in the front looking irritated.
As soon as we got home Rigby seemed to have the mind set "this is my home now"
She has totally immersed herself in my household.
Within the first few hours she had learned her name and came when it was called.
She is trustworthy off lead, even in "busy" areas (the dog park).
I've never witnessed a dog attach itself so quickly to a household. She has no interest in wandering or running away.
She has NO issues with food aggression, possessions, having her feet touched, being picked up, having her nails trimmed, taking a bath, or having her mouth touched.
And she has more love to give than any other dog.
She is wonderful in every sense of the word.
I just wanted to share my story with her so far, and say they don't all have "issues" in hopes to inspire another family to opt to adopt
