When You Rescue an Animal from a Shelter

 

A boxer

Clarksville, TN – One afternoon my husband Bill and I went to the Animal Shelter. One little puppy captured our hearts and we took her home with us.

Fawn, named because she is the color of a deer, has big brown eyes, huge paws, and the sculptured body of a boxer. The animal control officer, believed she would eventually weigh about 55 pounds. She now weighs 96 pounds (our fault, we are assured by her vet), and she is, unfortunately, somewhat obsessive-compulsive.

Fawn believes that order should reign in this world. When any object in our house is moved to a new location, Fawn is disturbed. When she was a puppy, she would stand and bark at the object until she finally decided that we weren’t going to move it again. She now just avoids that area for several weeks at a time. «Read the rest of this article»
