Rescue Me Week, Day 4 – Diva

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.

My tongue is super gorgeous, just like ME!

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!

Me and my tongue - hangin' out.

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!

Thank you, Diva. I sure hope you finds your furever home real soon! And thank you, National Mill Dog Rescue, for everything you do to helps doggies like Diva.

  8. Oh, my gosh. I love this little girl and that tongue is so adorable. I wonder if you have to be careful with her in the sun so her tongue doesn’t get sunburned. We are back today with another post for your awesome event of Rescue Me Week. Thanks for doing this wonderful thing. Sniffs, The HoundDogs

  11. Mayzie – I so agree with the others… this has been the best week ever thanks to your wonderful idea. It’s so overwhelming when you realize how many homeless animals are out there and it seems like the shelters struggle so much just to keep going. Thankfully, there are also many compassionate and generous people (like your mom) who are trying to make a difference. My post is up for today featuring Bob and friends…

  12. Oh I love the iggy’s and see one somewhere in my future! Stumpy plays a little rough for their fine bones, though 😦 I just KNOW Diva’s happily furever after family is coming to get her!

    Happy, Waggin’ Tails, FUREVER!
    Stumpy and me
    We’re in again today!

  13. Diva is beautiful. Puppy Mills are BAD BAD BAD. Thank goodness that place was shut down, but poor Diva, having to spend so many years there. I wish I could talk the people into getting me a little dog of my own; until then, I am sending Diva hugs & kisses!

  15. The tongue is such a wonderful part of the dog–dogs who are kind enough to keep them on display should be celebrated.
