Today's Weekend Rescue - 2 Shepherds, a Terrier and a Saint Bernard
I didn't take many pictures on Friday's trip to North Central because I was so upset over Teddy, but I did get a few. Of six dogs, actually, two of whom have gotten adopted since then! But these other guys are definitely worth a look:
I first saw Nero almost a month ago, and he has grown a lot since then. Of all the dogs I interacted with, he was the sweetest, most puppy-like. He does that whole-body wag when you kneel down to pet him. I think he hasn't been adopted yet because he's over 80 pounds and is still growing. Look at that giant paw! But he does have a medical notation on his card with no explanation. Could he be sick? Save Nero!
I've never seen a Saint Bernard at a shelter - certainly not a stray who is as beautiful and friendly. Maybe she is an escapee? I hope some big-dog lover with room for her to play will take her home.
