Video Featuring Dogs: GRACIE & POPCORN PEELER (Sister & Brother)

From Petfinder: Gracie (born about 12/1/12) & her brother Popcorn (born about 6/13/13) were two of 23 who were noted to be emaciated on a farm. Their owner had died inside the house and it was quite a while before anyone knew. Apparently their care had been good until then as they are all very sociable, gentle and trusting. Gracie is a beautiful and loving girl, very fond of the other dogs from the farm, and is very high energy. She needs a home where she gets lots of play time and would do best with at least one other compatible dog to play with. When not watched and occupied, she will jump a fence. With all she has been through, she is sometimes frightened of new dogs and doesn’t react well but this does improve if one gives her a chance. She needs the help only a stable and loving home can supply. Her brother, Popcorn has no faults of which we are aware and would make a good pet for someone wanting a mellow large one. Housetraining will need to be done as it is doubtful he has had house dog experience.
From Volunteer Joe R: It would nice to keep these two together in their forever home. Gracie has ‘improved dramatically’ while being at the shelter. She now comes to adoption events with much more self-confidence and less skittishness. She is ready for forever home.

DCAWS Featured Dog: ZEPPLIN

Video Featuring Dog: ZEPPLIN

Zepplin was brought to the shelter by some caring people who had found him in a nearby small town. He was wearing a collar with Zeppllin on it, but there was no phone number of address. He was hungry, dirty and had some recent wounds and his left back leg had been amputated at some time in the past. Despite all that, he was very loving and friendly, grateful for help and very cooperative. When loading in the van to go to the veterinary clinic for his wounds, he licked the volunteer (whom he had never seen before) in the face with seeming love and gratitude. At the clinic, they recognized the dog and the amputation had been done there. Efforts to reach the owner with the information we had led to nothing. Two weeks done the line the owner did surface and said she wanted him back, seeming especially happy that she had a female in heat to mate with him. However, she did not ever come or make contact again. Zepplin has now been neutered and is ready to be someone’s loving companion. Of all the dogs we have had over the years, we can honestly say this is one of the sweetest.
