Sunny smiles Sunday

It was a pretty busy Sunday at TAS today. Lots of people dropped by, test driving (walking) the dogs, adopting the dogs. Lots of new dogs arrived as well. Here's one of my favorite, a young Doberman cross.

He's still under observation for a few days, as are all new dogs, but I'm sure when he gets put into adoption, he'll be snatched up. Even as I was taking his picture, three passers by asked about him. Must have been his smile.

With the perfect weather, hanging out with the new dogs, talking to all the people looking for four legged housemates - it was a great way to spend a few hours on a Sunday afternoon.

I also heard that another puppy mill in Quebec was raided last Friday and 109 dogs were seized. It looks like there's a good chance we may be getting some of those Quebec dogs at TAS over the next couple of weeks to help them out with their rehoming. The breeding dogs I've seen come into TAS in the past have never been in good shape but they've always made excellent pets if they were able to recover from their previous abuse. Hopefully, we'll be able to find decent homes for some of these recently freed puppy mill dogs to help make up for their suffering a life of hardship for people that just have to buy puppies without caring about their origins.
