Success Story: Tru
March 2008 - When I saw this adorable face on PNW BC Rescue, it was LOVE at first sight!
Already having 3 bc/aussies, I really didn't need another...but there was just something that HIT ME about this one.
I contacted Anne at Border Creek Rescue to inquire.
"Yes, I'll be at the Albany agility show this weekend" I said. Oh! so will she and she'll bring this little slightly shy guy with her for a meet & greet.
It took all of about 2 minutes for me to know, THIS WAS MY NEXT DOG! But, just to be sure, Anne agreed to let him spend the night, as it was very important to me that my #1 once in a lifetime dog, Mick, get along with him.
Let's see...Mick sleeps next to me on my right, and has for 7 years...and guess who cuddled up, laying all the way down on my left side ALL NIGHT?
I whispered into his ear. "You're TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE!" and that's his name now...Tru.
Who knew that little 9 month old pup would blossom into THIS handsome DOG just 1 year later. Tru is now my 'grow old with me dog', my NEW agility partner, and the most wonderful addition to my life since Mick.
I LOVE this boy through and through...and he is...TOO GOOD TO BE TRU.
So, when you decide to look at a rescue, look past the wrapper...it's the gooey inside that really counts!
