Default "Doesn't Even Know She's a Rescue, Yet"

Our wonderful groomer, Madeline, also runs Southern California Poodle Rescue. When I dropped off Beau this morning at 8 AM for his regular groom, there were no dogs in rescue. But as I walked from my car to go in and pick up Beau at 12:45, a big-sounding dog was baying the most forlorn howl you can imagine.

I asked Madeline, "Who's howling? Is it a rescue"?

She pointed to a white standard standing just on the other side of a sliding glass door leading to a large enclosed area outside, and said, "That's Shelli. She just came in. She thinks she just came here for a bath; doesn't even know she's a rescue yet."

Just about broke my heart.

Here she is. Spread the word!

SHELLI is a purebred, AKC registered white Standard Poodle female. She is 5 years old. Shelli is housebroken, loves everyone including children and gets along with other dogs.

That's such a sad story for beautiful Shelli. I hope she finds a wonderful home before she knows she's a rescue.

Shelli is beautiful. Maybe Beau can have a sister?

Oh she is beautiful... I wish I were closer. She looks so much like Remington. How sad, I hope that she finds the most wonderful home where she is spoiled rotten.

Just tears at your heart. On the up side, she is in rescue and not in a shelter. I hope she will not be without a family to love her for very long. Please keep us posted on her status. Thanks.

I did ok reading it the first time, but then tried to read it aloud to Bruce. Sniff...I will keep this young lady in my thoughts and if you could post a link with her info, I'd be delighted to post her on my FB wall in hopes of finding her a remarkable, forever home.
