September 29, 2012 – These 2 beautiful little girls were found at a dump in Mississippi. They were quickly taken in by Sue Sexton where they had a chance to be medically stabilized and put on a little weight before moving them to their foster homes in the north. Sue did an amazing job with them and they were dubbed Doe and Rae.
They are outgoing, spirited little things who love to chew on each others ears and wrestle and run, run, run… A foster home was finally located with Tanya Pariseau in Illinois and the search for drivers began. The first attempt at transport failed. The second wasn’t going to complete either, but we could get them all the way to Memphis and we had a very generous offer to board them in the Memphis area and catch a ride later that week up to mid-state Illinois. And so the girls departed Sue and headed north with volunteer drivers Amelia Hudson, Kirk Glessinger, Brianna Taylor, Leslye Koch and Peggy Robinson.
Peggy brought them to long-time friend Ken Blackman who opened his heart and home to these cuties for 5 days until their ride headed north to mid-state Illinois with Sheila Hoffman.
My husband and I met the pups in Mattoon IL and transported them back to northern Illinois where we spent 3 fun-filled days with these 2. Adorable, rambunctious, sweet and outgoing, these two were very attached to each other so the decision was made to split them up so they could both develop their own personalities and get ready for their own forever homes. Sharon Roundy and her husband Joe Szewculak were contacted to see if they might be interested in fostering one of the girls. They readily agreed and during the following Sunday and Monday the girls made the trip to their respective homes.
They made the transition very well and continue to grow into absolutely wonderful puppies, I really can’t say enough about their personalities and temperament. I’m sure they will be available for adoption shortly – we wish them a beautiful future filled with love and wonderful adventures.
Thank you to all the incredible people who rescued them from the dump, brought them back to health, transported, overnighted, fostered and loved these little girls. They are what it is all about.
