Good morning, everybuddy! Well, here it is. The next to the last day of Rescue Me Week and it’s gone better than I ever thought it would! I know on one paw, it’s sad to see all the pets who are still looking for their furever homes. But on the other paw, maybe – just maybe – somebuddy will come along, see the post on your bloggie and think, “THAT’S the family member I’ve been looking for!”
Alrighty. Today’s Adorable Adoptable comes from this super fantastic place here in Collie-rado called National Mill Dog Rescue. Their mission is “to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home discarded breeding dogs and to educate the general public about the cruel realities of the commercial dog breeding industry.”
We heart them SO much!
And now we’d like to introduce you to DIVA!
Okay, admit it. You’re totally in luvs with her, aren’t you?
Take it away, Diva! Tell ’em all abouts your sexy self!
Hi there, I’m Diva, a 12-year old, 7 pound Italian Greyhound aka “Iggy”. I lived in a terrible puppy mill in Iowa. It was so bad that the Humane Society there closed it down and took the 22 of us Iggy’s to their shelter. They called NMDR and before I knew it, we were headed for Colorado and the wonderful people and kennels there. What a difference! For one thing, it’s great to eat good food.
You better tell me NOW if you don’t want to see my tongue! You see what years of bad food and no dental care does? No teeth! Be sure to brush your teeth! It’s not so bad. I don’t even think about it. As long as I can eat soft food everything is A OK. I think my tongue sticking out gives me lots of character. I need someone to see me as I am, beautiful!
I am a little shy but love to cuddle and eat. There are two, no three things I love to do, eat, sleep, and run. My foster mom also thinks that I am also a bed hog. I am very alert and interested in everything. Foster mom even lets me watch TV!!
I am so happy to be free. I love the big back yard in my foster mom’s home. There are eight other dogs here and I get along with them all. One of them is a Mastiff/Boxer. She’s cool and likes to run too. I am working on potty training and go outside a lot. I would really love to have a forever home. Imagine. My own family! Ask about me. I’m waiting. I’m a sweet but timid girl that would do best in a slower home with older children (7+), a fenced yard, and other dogs. I’m a social butterfly that doesn’t want to be alone! So come out and meet me, Diva!
