My Dog’s Name: Toast
Age of My Dog: 6 months
What I Love About My Dog: This is a puppy we found, very underweight, full of ticks, but she has a huge personality! She’s loving and so friendly! We put out ads for her, asked around the neighborhood, nobody knew her or claimed her.
Since we can’t have a dog where we live, we went about finding her a good home. It just happened that my son’s best friends mother was here visiting from Texas. (We live in Manitoba, Canada). She’s a huge dog lover and actually runs a no-kill dog shelter in Texas. She fell in love with the puppy and took her back to Texas, but she’s keeping the pup for herself. She named her Toast, because that was the nickname given my son by her son when they were in kindergarten together. My son is now 20 and the nickname has stuck with him!
For rescues only: how I got my dog: Found at my front door, seriously underweight and full of ticks! (47 ticks!)
