|I posted in the laws and legislation about my next door neighbors tying their dog out a lot and eventually did talk to them after hearing from other neighbors that they were intending to rehome their Australian Cattle Dog.
I had talked to them, they said a friend was going to take her, but I offered to help find a home if that didn't work out and also to walk her in the meantime.
Today, I look out back and she's got her tie out wrapped around the lawn mower handle in their yard. I knocked loudly twice and yelled at their door, no answer. So me and my roommate get in the yard and free her. While pondering whether we should really retie her, she hops like a goat over their flimsy barricade and I go meet her out front.
I say what the heck, leave a note letting them know what happened and decide to go ahead and walk her.
A couple hours later the guy is back and working on his car. I've already made up my mind to further pester them about when this friend is really going to take her and think about offering money for her.
So I go out and ask if he saw my note and he says, "Yeah, why don't you go ahead and take her . . . she's good with you, I know you'll give her a good home." He calls his wife and she's perfectly fine with it.
So, yea! And YIKES!
Her and Gus seem to be getting along great, some rough housing, now they're both chillin' . . . .
I already called my agility instructor and she offered that I could bring her along to class and play around in the beginners since the class is small and she won't charge us.
Unfortunately she's not fixed, so I'll have to get that done. They think she's about 3.
Her name was Tara, but I've started calling her Polliwog (Polly)--seemed kind of Aussie sounding to me . . . My intention is to look for a good home with someone my instructor knows who will give her a good busy life . . . . we'll see . . . .
Polliwog and Gus
