Friday Dog Blogging: Meet the Crew edition

These pretty boys and girls are who we have right now waiting to be adopted. Tomorrow and Sunday is our adopt-a-thon event at a PetSmart in Stafford so here's hoping some of them go home (or at least get good applications that eventually lead to good homes).

Shimmy and Asher have been with us for a long time. Supposedly Asher is 4 years old but acts more like he's 4 months and Shimmy is only 1.5 years old, is a wonderful dog and would prefer to be outside all the time.

Kara is tiny but loves to run and play with all her foster siblings. She looks purebred, just a little on the smaller side. But heck, good things come in small packages, right?

Luigi, on the other hand, is my man! He really is a great dog but prefer he be the only male dog in the house because he's more than just a little Alpha. However, he loves people and will cuddle up to you as long as you want. He's a great listener and learned all the tricks/commands C taught him in about 1 or 2 weeks. Unfortunately, he thinks, at 80lbs or so, that he's a lap dog, : 0.

The only thing Mario wants you to do over and over again? Throw the damned ball. If you don't, he'll stand there and bark until you do. The cool thing is, he'll bring the ball right back and place it in your hand whereas my dog, Shia, drops it about 2-3 feet away then slowly rolls it in your direction when you don't get up right away. So if you know anyone who wants an older dog who loves to play fetch, Mario is the one for you!

I've introduced you all to Trini and Neil on two other occassions so I'll stop talking about them now.

Edited to add: Shimmy, Trini and Luigi all got adopted this weekend, yay!
