All in the Family


Anatolian Shepherd Dog / Australian Shepherd

When we walked into the animal shelter in Kitchener, we weren't expecting to adopt anyone. We were missing our old dog Jake, who'd just passed away hours earlier & wanted to be with lively healthy dogs instead of the empty quiet house. Dog after dog they looked so alone, each one with a past of abuse & neglect. Some with tempers, some who just wanted to be pet. We came across what looked like an old dog who seemed to be nearing his time laying in his glass box that was tall & just wide enough so he could turn & move around a bit. He seen us & his tail hardly wagged, he seemed so lonely, so sad & unloved. We walked away from him & went to look at a few other foster pets, but none really caught our attention like him. When we walked back to see what the big old dog was up to, he seen us & his head perked up when he realized we were coming back to see him. He stood up looking at us, & went over to his ball that had landed in the only pile of droppings that the people at the shelter hadn't seen yet. He looked at us & looked at his ball as if asking us to help him with it. A very good impression stating he was a very clean dog. Once he impressed us with his cleanliness, we went over to his door that he was tall enough to reach his snout so we could pet him. That was it. He was friendly, older & clean. We went up to the front desk to see if we could meet him. They told us to wait in this small room with chairs & windows all around & when he came in he was so excited & full of life that it wasn't surprising when we found they estimated him to be only a year old.
