Default Picking Up Rescue

Today one of my co-workers (another dog person) let me know about a Maltese that is in the shelter in Santa Fe. His name is Oliver, 9 year old male with a skin condition. He was an owner surrender because of the skin issues. I saw a picture and he looks adorable.

I called the shelter today to let them know that I will foster him for rescue and that we will pull him tomorrow. The shelter was so happy. The lady told me that she's been keeping him in her office at the shelter (not in a kennel) and that he's been there for 2 weeks. They did not know who to call for rescue for Malts here in New Mexico, but now have my contact info.

I will be setting up a quarantine room at the house tonight and have already scheduled him to see my Vet on Thursday morning at 8:30 a.m. to be fully vetted.

The shelter did call me back to let me know that Oliver is currently on Prednisone and is on Hills Diet Non-Allergy Prescription food and that they will send both the meds and the food with me so that we can either wean him off or have time to make the appropriate changes.

So, even though I had decided to limit myself to 3 fluffs, I will have a 4th, at least for the time being. Will keep you posted when I finally get to meet him. I'm sad that he's been there for 2 weeks, but happy that he hasn't been left in a kennel with other dogs. The Santa Fe shelter was redone about 3-4 years ago and is an awesome shelter.

Now I'm going to be a foster Mom.

Funny thing is that I was watching Oliver Twist on TV yesterday and last night I was thinking that I should have a little boy Malt because I have some cute clothing ideas. I guess it was meant to be.

You know I couldn't leave him at the shelter. After he's fully vetted, we'll have to find him a furever home. (That is if I can bear to part from him by then.)

Is gambling a violation of SM rules? If not, I think we should start a little pool to see how long it takes Lynn to adopt this beautiful baby into her forever crew . lol

Lynn, I absolultely could not be happier for you or this little guy. What a blessing you will be for each other. Oh and I think having a male fluff in the house would be a great thing! I can't wait to see tons of pictures and hear all about him and how he fits in with the girls .
