The dog that captured my heart

Whether wise or not, I'm hooked up with hundreds of animal advocates on Facebook. We cross-post stray and homeless animals, trying to spring them out of kill shelters and find them warm and loving homes. Of course, I fall in love with 3 out of every 5 pets I try and help but this one has completely captured my heart.

Just look at those eyes. His sweet face begs for understanding, for a safe place to live out his days. The gal that got him out of the kill shelter named him Petey, of course.

Yeah, I know Petey looks a lot like our sweet girl - and maybe that's part of the appeal. When Frosty looks at me like that I'm a puddy in her paws. But I don't think that's the only reason I can't stop thinking about this pup. There's just something about this one that I can't shake.    

Those of you who follow this blog know how much I want a friend for Frosty but our circumstances are not suitable. Unfortunately, we cannot add to our pack until we sell our condo (which has been on the market for 3 years - don't get me started) and buy a house with a yard. And yes, I know I've become attached to other dogs and written about them (When Will We Get Another Dog?). But look at him again. Let me help you, here's another shot:

Petey is 10 months old and located in S.C. but transport can probably be arranged, certainly to nearby locations. He gets along great with other dogs and with children. This is a sweet, precious puppy that needs a home quickly. I've joined forces with several others animal lovers to try and help him. Let me know if you have any interest and please help spread the word about Petey. Thank you.

I know what you mean, Langley. I look at all of those posts when I'm sharing them and wish I had about 15 acres for all of them. Cats and dogs both. And, Petey is a cutie. I pray he finds a great home.

Looks like a great dog. I hope he finds a home soon, and three years, wow that must be frustrating.

He's adorable! It's very easy to become attached to some of the pets we try to help. I do it all the time. I worry about them all, but some of them really get to me.

Oh, and I'm still pulling for you to be able to sell your place so you can adopt somebody special.

Wishing you and Petey luck in finding him a home. Wish I could help, but I already have a dog--Corky Porky Pie--who would not want to share his pack, and two cats. Hope someone can help, though.

Also hope your condo sells soon!

Hello Langley ,
You are number 448 on my blog hopping through the Eights journey. You can check out my post about it @ Just dropped by to say good luck on the A to Z Challenge!

Cute dog. Reminds me of Rick Springfield's Success Hasn't Spoiled Me Yet album cover art
