Not All Dogs Like Other Dogs or Rollie is Available for Adoption

Just because you're a dog, does not mean you will like all other dogs - especially when that dog wants to be part of your family.  Many dogs love being an only dog and wonder why we would bring competition into their home.  I will say that I understand where they are coming from - I am a very social person who loves other people, but I love my space and would not be happy having somebody else moving into my home.

This is what happened to Rollie.  The initial meeting with family members, including their family dog, went splendidly.  As much as Rollie would have loved being part of a two dog family, their dog decided that it had been perfectly happy being an only dog.  I will say that when Rollie visited my home for the weekend, he was very easy going and could easily be pushed around by Lola.  This probably added to the problem, since the other dog sensed that he could be a bully and Rollie would not fight for her spot.

Well you guessed it, Rollie is again available for adoption.  To see what a great dog he is, check out his previous post to see how well he behaved at my home for the weekend.  After you have read this and have decided that he is the dog for you, call the Bangor Humane Society .  He is spending his time in foster care, so you will need to make an appointment to meet him.

Successful Week @ BHS

The goal of saying "Goodbye" was met with flying colors last week at the Bangor Humane Society.  With 15 dogs, 11 cats and 29 kittens finding new homes, you may be asking yourself what more could they have done.  Well, let's throw in reuniting 6 lost pets with their families. 

FYI - one of those dogs finding a forever home was Rollie.  The family who adopted him was looking for a dog that needed some loving and Rollie definitely deserves more then his share.  The Littlefields and Lola wish Rollie and his new family our best!

Remember, being part of the Bangor Humane Society's family of staff and volunteers means saying "Goodbye" often.  Sometimes it's hard, but that is always the goal.

Rollie Spends the Weekend Recuperating @ the Littlefield's

I am a very  loving pit bull who has recently had knee surgery.  My foster family had to go away for the weekend and this gave me the opportunity to go visit the Littlefields and their dog Lola.

I would have loved to get out there and run with Lola,  but that was not part of my rehabilitation.  I love most dogs and would do well in a home with other dogs.  Lola at times got a bit jealous, but I could understand where she was coming from and let her be.  It could also have been that I know my manners and always do as told.  You see Lola has alot of terrier in her and well.... we wouldn't want to discriminate against a breed, but she can be quite stubburn.  FYI - I didn't mean to show her up in the manners department, that's just me!

I will let you know that I am a bit of a sleepy head.  Napping on a Saturday afternoon or sleeping in on a Sunday morning is just fine for me.  The addition of a nice dog bed and I will sleep like a baby and also snore like crazy!

I don't care much for the stuffed dog toys.  But please, please, please consider giving me one of those antler sheddings that Lola has.  She didn't think too much of them until I showed up - thank goodness there was more then one! 

One more thing that I really love is being held and giving kisses.  Obviously this was one thing that did not make Lola very happy,  but how could I resist such a great invitation.  FYI - with two humans in the household, there were enough hugs and kisses for two dogs!!!

Well the weekend was great, but for now I am settled back in with my foster family and their dog Pepper.  I have just recently been put up for adoption, but will not be residing at the Bangor Humane Society.  I will be staying with my foster family.  If you are interested in me and would like to set up a meeting, call the Bangor Humane Society at 942-8902.  Please do this sooner then later, since I am a really great dog and hope not to be available for long.

BONUS - If you haven't seen enough of me to make you want to run to the phone and make that call, check out the video that the Bangor Humane Society has made about the time I spent with my foster family.

Blog Neglect and Daisy Gets Adopted

There has been a bit of blog neglect on the Littlefield's part - but the good news is that I, Daisy, have been adopted.  My thoughts are that my new name should be Annie, as in the movie.  You see I got adopted by somebody who is out to change my world and life is grand!!!  I have a whole new wardrobe, new toys and everything a dog could ask for.  The best part is that I have found a forever home where I am loved and well cared for. 

Thank you Bangor Humane Society for helping me find my forever home!!!
