Belle Bader writes: Our family had way too many dogs and somebody needed to leave. I’m not sure if we were chosen and if they thought we volunteered, but we were the ones who ended up at the shelter. Thankfully, we soon heard we may get a better future, thanks to rescue. I’m just glad Washington and I could stay together because we go everywhere together.
I am 4 years old, 69 lbs and I’ve had a few puppies. Dr. Larsen says I am in good shape and shouldn’t need a lot of work done. I do want to get rid of these tear stains in my face wrinkles, though. Everyone talked about how active and loving I am.
Washington is 2 years old and a big boy, weighing in at 72 pounds. He also has those nasty stains in his face wrinkles. He has some skin issues and his ears are infected, but we know Dr. Larsen will help get all those fixed.
You should know: Washington’s a momma’s boy. He doesn’t like me to get out of his sight. When we got to the clinic today, I let out a little whimper when they were examining me and poor Washington thought they were hurting me. He tried to run to protect me, but a man held him back. I know he just wanted to check on me. I’ll admit ~ I also cried a little bit when the vet staff took Washington to get a bath without me. I guess we both love each other… a lot.
Anyhoooo, you can see why we hope we can stay together, be fostered together and be adopted together. We heard it has happened before, so we feel certain it will happen for us too. How would you like to have us in your family?
10/2/20 Update: Most know Washington was very bonded with his mother, Belle Bader. Belle passed suddenly yesterday following complications during surgery. He had a very restless night and had to be sedated.
This morning, he started out a little slow and grumpy, but got better throughout the day. Staff spent a lot of extra time with him and let him play outside. I spent about 30 minutes with him this afternoon. He moved around the yard, but he kept looking around. I think I know why. He and Belle always went outside together!
He will get lots of extra love and attention. He is ready to leave the vet clinic and move into his foster home.
