I met Brody yesterday. He is a handsome, charming, nicely balanced Pekingese. His surgical wounds are healing and he is getting about the business of showing his new family what a fine dog he is. He has particularly ingratiated himself with the family's teen-aged daughter. Smart doggie!
Dog rescue is both rewarding and heartbreaking. It is wonderful to look at a sweet bundle of loveableness like Brody and realize that his life was saved by a chain of people who have never met, but care about human beings' responsibilities to helpless domestic pets. It is shattering to look at Brody and know that if a beautiful, pure-bred dog with so much to recommend him needed rescue, the problem of homeless dogs is beyond imagining.
Once more, a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who played a part in Brody's rescue!
