Rennie goes to her Forever Home

Rennie is a lovely border collie who was rescued from the Memphis Animal Shelter after being found as a stray. She had been well-trained by someone, because she obeys commands, is housetrained, and uses the doggie door to go outside. Rennie looking out the window

Rennie had a rough go of it early on. When rescued from the shelter, volunteers Jerry and Cindy heard about her plight and offered to open up their home to her. Jerry and Cindy had failed Fostering 101 earlier in the year and hoped to pass successfully this time!

Rennie was a sick young dog when she came into Jerry and Cindy’s home. She had an infection in her suture area. Thankfully Dr. James Pearce of Stage Road Animal Hospital diagnosed her, provided appropriate treatment, and got her on the road to recovery. Rennie was so thankful to be feeling well again!

Rennie with Tom and SydTom and Syd saw Rennie’s picture on the Internet and immediately made an application to adopt her. They showed up bright and early at Saturday’s adoption day at the Bartlett Petco and were absolutely smitten with Rennie.

They’ve done some work with dogs in obedience programs and realized Rennie’s excellent skills. Rennie took to them rapidly – she has this way of knowing who are good folks … and these two seemed like great folks … ones she’d be excited to please for the rest of her life.

Rennie joins a family with a couple of cats and we’re not sure how she’ll do with the cats! But Rennie is always up for a new adventure in a loving home. Good luck, Rennie, Tom, and Syd (and the rest of the family)!

Note from Good Dog Rescue: Rennie’s situation highlights the lengths that rescue organizations go to in order to help abandoned, abused, and unwanted dogs find great homes. Rennie’s treatment and shelter fees were approximately $800. This is an expense that is often borne by the rescue groups. Your tax deductible donations to Good Dog Rescue help to defray some of these costs, making it possible to continue helping these precious animals who ask so little of us, but give so much of themselves to make us happy. Thank you for everything you do to help us help them.
