The Little Rescue...

Here's a picture of the little poodle we rescued on that frigid cold day last week. He was confused, caked with dirt, burrs and ice, and wandering on an very busy street in my city of Cohoes. My sister and i caught him, wrapped him in her sweat jacket and brought him to our groomer Chiloe from The Animal House. She was very kind and had him put in a tub of warm soapy water so John could bathe him and then blow his fur dry. He has been sitting at the shelter all week, but not a soul has come to inquire about him or claim him, so i guess he will go up for adoption. Chiloe, our groomer who does free grooming for the Mohawk and Hudson Humane Society, groomed him today and cut away lots of the fur you see in this photo. She said he is very sweet, but a bit timid. They estimate he is about 10 years old and has very bad teeth... Still...i wonder if he would like to live here? Would he get along with my dogs, cat and parrot? Could i manage 5 dogs???

He is very cute. It must be awfully tempting to keep him when you found him wandering like that. Poor little mite must have been so scared and confused. I hope whatever happens he finds a great home with someone nice.

Hi I came over from Critter Farm when I saw the picture of the rescue dog. He looks just like my old poodle Oliver that died at 16. He had bad teeth too. Please let him live at your house....no pressure here.

The picture we have of him is not a very good one. it was taken after his bath, which made his hair all fluffy and in his face, and he has since gotten groomed by our groomer Chiloe. I will see if we can get a better photo of him soon. I would really like to just go and get him and bring him here to live with me, but i know it might upset the chemistry here. That would give us three males here and 2 of them older...with him being about 10 and Gipetto being 16(17 in June)Geeps barely has the patience for Rubie, let alone another dog coming in.I hear he already has someone interested in looking at him. I'll let you know what happens...

Aw, Mare...he is so fortunate there are caring humans in this world like you and your sister. Poor little guy - he must be so confused. Where in the world did his people go? Who would just abandon a pup like this?
I'm so, so glad you stopped to help him.
He'd be an awfully lucky dog to get to live with you.
