HAPPY TAIL UPDATE:

This is Abby, a probable border collie/pointer mix who came to us from Paws in the City in July 2009 at about one year of age. Of the three rescue dogs we have adopted, Abby is the only one who was in good physical condition when we got her and did not need a lot of help from the vet to start her new life.

Abby is a very special lady. Certainly she is easy to recognize with her stylish black and white coat, her blue and brown unmatched eyes, and the white point down her back. She settled in immediately and makes sure we get plenty of playtime and good, healthy walking daily. She is the most social dog ever, friendly to all dogs and people and especially patient with puppies and little children. She absolutely loves to go to a dog park or doggie day care occasionally and party with all the dogs there. She's our turbo-charged energy dog.

About a year ago she helped us round up another black and white border collie mix that had been abandoned near our home. Neighbors had been trying to catch the poor, starving little fellow for over a week and no one could get close to him. So we brought in Abby. Apparently she persuaded him that he had nothing to fear and after a couple of hours, he finally came to her. He was in terrible shape, but now after a year and a half and some serious vet attention, he is her devoted sidekick and playmate, and they even look a lot alike. Which all goes to show that a dog in need who finds a happy home can "play it forward" and make a happy ending for everyone.

Thank you so much for saving our sweet girl just for us and giving so many animals a chance for a happy, healthy new lease on life. They know.
