Stray dog update...He's HOME!!!!
Well, after 9 months, Rusty the Chow mix stray, is home!!!! All 3 of my other dogs like him. He was terrified in the car, but when I got home, I took him and my spayed female GSD mix for a walk together. That went fine (I had taken all of my dogs for a really long walk before I left to go get Rusty, so they were settled down somewhat.
Then when we got back from the walk w/Rusty and Christy, I put my Cocker mix (Snickers) and Yeller (my Golden/Lab mix)behind the pool fence and let Christy and Rusty out back. I put leashes on Snickers and Yeller and took all 4 for a walk. By the end of the walk, everyone was getting along.
Rusty keeps coming in and "smiling" at me. I think he is happy to have a home. It's funny but Yeller, who is 10/11 yrs old and about 110 lbs, many old fractures/bone chips, mangled foot, hip Dysplasia has been following Rusty around nonstop trying to play with him. They're gonna be exhausted tonight!
I'll be taking Rusty to the vet next week for shots/neutering/microchipping.
Thank God I have a wonderful, understanding husband!
