After leaving the veterinary clinic (Dra. Lesley Rodriguez in Mayagüez – what a wonderful team of animal loving health providers!), my rescuer and I went to Rincón! Yes, I’m an island dog, but I’m from Maricao and she thinks I’ve probably never seen the beach before – oh the irony!
I was hesitant at first, but I really enjoyed napping on the comfy sand under the shade of a tree. She tried to get me to go in the water, but I wasn’t having any of that. I sipped some and YUCK! It was so salty!
I was too busy romping around so we didn’t take any pictures, but here’s one of me on the ride back home – I was pooped! And sleeping with a smile on my face 😋😋😋
My countdown is on… my rescuer leaves the island on Friday. We have two days to find me an angel who will take me in for a week and take me to the airport on Friday, April 7th, between 10:30 and 11:30am. All my expenses are paid, I’m clean, protected against fleas and ticks, and have a 5lb bag of yummy healthy food for the week.
My forever home is a fenced-in house with a yard in Tucson, Arizona. My dad has been a close friend of my rescuer for 15 years and he’s ready to love me, and take me on all sorts of mountain adventures.
WILL YOU HELP ME GET TO MY FOREVER HOME? Send my rescuer a message at firstname.lastname@example.org and PLEASE, share my page with everyone you know!
My rescuer took me to the vet yesterday and I passed almost all my health exams!!! I have a very low platelet count, so I’m a bit anemic now (the diet on the streets is hard on the body, I tell you), but I’ve been patiently letting my rescuer give me my vitamins and antibiotics so my health goes up to PERFECT!
No heartworms,no mange, no problem! I go back to the vet on Wednesday to get all my shots… and then I’ll be ready for my FOREVER HOME!
My rescuer will write more tonight, including share a video she took of me at the vet. I was SO HAPPY to get love from so many different people! And there were puppies and cats and birds and I loved them all!!! Here’s a picture of a nice man who gave me lots of love. His baby dog was my favorite new friend at the office 😋😋😋
After my bath, nap, and second bowl of food, my rescuer brought me to see if one of her animal loving friends could foster me until she finds me a Forever Home. No dice, her friend already has 6 dogs, cats, and even a pig! But I really enjoyed the car ride during the day, it felt much better than last night when I was still dirty and scared.
My rescuer likes to take lots of pictures and videos of me. She says she wants to show the world how good I am 😀 Here’s some video of me and her furry best friend, Tori. Tori is very bossy and was not nice to me last night. But even though I’m still a puppy, I’m calm, and I don’t have a mean bone in my body, so now we’re friends 😀
I just ate a third bowl of high protein food, and my rescuer even added sardines to the bowl! It was delicious, I couldn’t eat it fast enough! She said it’s good for my coat and joints.
Tomorrow I’m going to the vet. Wish me luck! Please consider fostering me – my rescuer only has one week left on the island and she can’t take me with her. She’ll pay for all my expenses, down to the treats, and will continue to work with organizations to find me my forever home.
And if you’re ready for a faithful lifelong companion – please adopt me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
From the look I’m giving on this picture, you can tell I was pet-ri-fied! My rescuer insisted she needed to pour water over me, even though I’ve worked so hard to escape all the rainfall of the island.
But once she worked in the Sentry PRO shampoo, I relaxed (a little). It felt really nice to get lathered up and massaged. All my fleas and ticks died (finally!) and my itchy spots got immediate relief. Then I gave her a hard time again when it was time to rinse 😀
