Those who visit this site know that my wife and I are softies for shelter dogs, and we picked up a dog today that we will be fostering for a few weeks until he recovers from surgery.
Meet Dr. Bombay, a friendly Schnodle who marched right in the house when we got home as though he has lived here forever. Due to some neglect issues, the folks at Planned Pethood had to have Dr. Bombay shaved to clear up some skin and nail issues, but he is doing pretty well considering all he has been through.
We are not sure if Dr. Bombay is a "forever" dog yet, but he seems to be getting along well with our Sheltie mix Jimmy and our Westie mix Candy.
And, for those of you thinking about getting a dog, please consider adopting a rescue pooch. Every resuce dog we have taken in has been housebroken, good-tempered, and loveable. For more information on adopting rescue dogs, see The Toledo Area Humane Society, Planned Pethood, or Petfinder.com.
