As usual, our email inboxes are always full. On October 13th of 2011, we received this message:
Dear Dalmatian Rescue,
You've helped us before and wondering if you may have a spot for Dixie Carter - she was surrendered by her owner due to health issues.
Here are notes that were taken upon her impound today:
This dog was surrendered for health of owner. Owner states "Unable to afford to have all of the dogs we have and found homes for almost all of them except this one". SWEET dog, very gently and VERY housetrained.
I would be happy to investigate any further questions... the good news is she is looking very healthy, is very sweet and housebroken.
Please let me know if you think you can help... or if I should forward this inquiry to someone else in your organization!
Citrus County Animal Services
Thanks to volunteer Alison B. who drove up to get her... and to Barbara and Steve who were looking for a Dalmatian to fill the void their beloved spot had recently left. We had them meet at our DRTB picnic and the three went home to another happy ending. Following is the email we received from Barbara along with a photo of Dixie resting in her new home.
SHE IS DOING FANTASTIC... MORE PICTURES TO FOLLOW AS TIME GOES ON. THANKS AGAIN FOR ALL YOU'VE HELPED US WITH THIS PAST WEEK. WE REALLY LOVE HER AND SHE IS GOING TO FIT INTO OUR LIVES SO WELL. AND OF COURSE, SHE WON'T BE SPOILED MUCH (HA HA HA)!
In our books, spoiled is the best!!! Thanks again to Sherry M. & Alison who made this ending possible.
