Dottie Found A New Friend: Leo

We took a visit to the animal shelter on Saturday. We met with an adoption counselor and talked about Dottie and our situation. We felt like Dottie was really missing having another dog in the house but she’s still recovering and in order to bring a new friend home we needed the right match. We met a couple of very adorable but rambunctious pittie boys. They had looked so submissive in their kennels but the hard and strong zoomies started as soon as their feet hit the grass. I was feeling very uncertain. Maybe it just wasn’t time.
The adoption counselor spoke up before I did and said “If you’re open to an older dog, I think I have a great dog to match with your tripawd. We agreed to meet “Lee-oh” who had been adopted but recently returned after a bad introduction to a neighbors cat. He was the only dog we met who calmed enough to interact with us. He sat. He listened. He was super sweet with a seriously scratched up face. We agreed to talk it over and return with Dottie today (which we did).
Dottie LOVED her visit to the animal shelter. So many sniffs and dog noises. So many kids and people wanting to pet a nice tripawd girl. She also had a friendly interaction with Lee-oh who was about as polite as a dog can be on a first introduction.
We drove separate vehicles so I could take Dottie home and my partner could bring home now Leo (that spelling was too silly for me πŸ˜‚).
We’ve done some navigating around the house and Leo and Dottie have had some brief walks (longer for Leo) and they are now resting comfortably on dog beds. Leo is a perfect gentleman and has been giving Dottie space as instructed.
The best news, Dottie seems more relaxed than she’s been since she came home from the pup hospital! ❀️🐾

We will keep you all posted on the adventures of Dottie and Leo!

Until next time! ✌🏽❀️🐾
Tara and Dottie

    Bravo! Congratulations to you and especially to Leo, he sure won the doggy lotto.

    I love that the shelter worker matched Dottie with an older fella. That’s the perfect setup for a Tripawd companion. My guess is they are going to have lots of great times together!
