Hubby and I decided to stop by the Cumberland Valley Animal Shelter in Chambersburg, PA last night to look at their dogs. From there website I had seen one I was interested in and wanted to check him out:
As with Washington County; this Humane Society was also over run with dogs and I could see more in the back waiting to be placed on the adoption floor. Lots of pitbulls which seems to be what most Humane Societies are being over run with these days. We saw many here that we liked:
Then I rounded the corner and found this:
I kept wandering around the kennel, and everytime I rounded the corner - Mickey's face would light up and his tail would wag and I just fell in love all over again! Sure, he may do that to everyone...but I had some connection with that dog.
We left empty handed, not wanting to make a rash decision. Both Mickey and Mallory are about 3-1/2 months old, which makes them puppies (something we weren't going for) and well that would mean a puppy stage again. So there's lots to think about. We decided we would go back in a few weeks. If either are still there we'll know one of them are meant to be, and we'll consider more seriously. In the meantime we are still watching other shelters, to see what they have.
But I can't get Mickey off my mind!
