Brian and I had just started to decorate for Christmas when we received a group email from one of the rescues we volunteer for. A fellow German Shorthaired Pointer Rescue of NJ volunteer has a friend who runs Min Pins and More Rescue. They had a dog who needed to be sprung from a shelter ASAP, and were looking for someone who was available to pull the dog and transport him to his foster. The shelter where “Rocco” was is not far from us, so we dropped the decorations, and started on our way to the shelter!
Rocco was quickly attached to Brian!
Rocco was surrendered by his owner for being “untrainable.” (Don’t even get me started). He mastered a “sit” before we even left the shelter grounds!
We let Rocco stretch his legs a bit, then headed on our way to drive him to his foster mom.
Welcome to your new life, Rocco!
We received an update about Rocco just a few days later – he met his FURever family and was adopted!
