Yes! Just this January, in fact. As you may know from a couple of my hubs, I lost one of my dogs in early November 2011. I had Sephi for 10 years and losing her was heartbreaking. I still had my dog Maya, who I also love very much, but my home felt empty without two dogs. So after the holidays, my husband and I started visiting animal shelters and rescue groups for a new family member. What happened instead can only be providence.
A FB friend told me about this stray who had been living in a park for nearly a month. I visited the park every day for three days before he was finally caught (he was super-sweet but very leash shy). I named him Pierson after the park. Pierson is about one year old and is probably an Australian Shepherd / Border Collie mix. I have had a few issues with him but most cleared up once he got comfortable in his new home.
Pierson, aka Mr. Fluffybutt, is a fantastic dog and I couldn't have been luckier. He is very smart, never once pottied in the house, quickly learned all the basic commands, and now walks better on a leash than Maya. He is very sweet. And although he is full grown, he is very much a puppy and so fun to play with.
