Rescue Me Week

We are participating in Mayzie's Rescue Me Week. Most of this post will be copied and pasted from one of
our local rescue organizations, Wayside Waifs. Mom is still having lots of discomfort and typing is quite the challenge. But we didn't want to miss out on a chance to help.

Wonkie! Isn't he just so adorable! Wonkie is a black and white Havanese mix, about 2 1/2 years old, neutered, and currently in a foster home. He would love to find a wonderful forever home. Here is some background on Wonkie in his own words.

Hi! I'm Mr. Wonkie, cute as a button and full of personality. I am a two and half year old, 11 pound, partially housetrained Havanese mix, searching for a brand new home. I came in as a stray, shy and fearful of everyone I met. And I've made great progress during my stay here at Wayside, although I'm still working out some of my issues and I do need a special sort of home with special people.

Well, some here think that I might not have always been treated in a friendly manner in the past. I get real nervous when you take my collar or leash off...I'm very sensitive around my neck area. And it takes me just awhile to learn to trust you and bond with you. Lucky for everyone, the Wayside staff knew to go slow with me, let me take my time getting used to my new environment, and slowly, I started to love them and trust them. That's when a whole new side of me appeared! I can be a fun and wiggly lap dog. I can love and feel happy and enjoy life! It just takes me a little time, that's all. I've already learned to sit for my treats and it makes me so happy when I see people smile because of me.

I'm looking for a home with patient people, who will allow me to go slow and learn to feel safe. I haven't felt that way before. I would love positive reinforcement when I do good. It teaches me what you want and expect from me and I'm happy to oblige. I will do best in a home without kids under the age of 18 years old, since their unpredictable movements are very scary to me. A quiet and calm home would be perfect for me. And if you take the time to bond with me, I promise to make it worth your while! I will be a fun, happy, and loyal companion to you.

So when are you coming out to meet me? I'm here and I'm ready to go home. Just say the word.
Love, Wonkie

We all think Wonkie deserves a great home so he can continue his progress and make some humans very happy.

Pee Ess - a quick update on the patients. Lightning is healing well and is more than ready to get back to the wild ways of a pup, but he is on restricted activity for another week. The Momster is still struggling with the pain, but doing the best she can. She is not a sit-still-and-rest sort of person, so this is not fun for her at all. We have her sitting now with a bag of frozen peas on her arm and a few pups at her feet.

Happy, Waggin' Tails, FUREVER!

My asst. wants to go get Wonkie right now... I'm not sure how I would do with sharing my treats though:(
I told her I'd think about it.

Glad the peas are helping... just think if you had to get those at the people pharmacy. They'd probably cost $50! BOL

Awwww...lookit his sweet little face! I luv him and I just don't know how anybuddy could ever be mean to him - EVER! He sure was lucky to find Wayside Waifs so that he could learn that there are good peoples in the world who will luv you and play with you and gives you treats. My paws are crossed real tight that he finds his Most Perfect Home That Ever Was SOON!

I'm still sending the momster super Pawerful Brindle Vibes that her hand gets feeling lots better fast! And I'm awfully glad that Lightning is back to his usual happy puppy self.

Glad Lightening is feeling better. Maybe if we all come lay on top of your Mom we can keep her still long enough for her bones to heal.

Wonkie sounds wonderful although he would hate it here. Unpredictable is the name of the game around here. Mommy says luckily I (Fenris) and a laid back go with the flow kinda guy who doesn't get upset about loud noises, hissy cats, and weird schedules. ~Fenris & his cats

Healing purrs for the Mom & Lightening.

Hi to my fav Woos!!
OMC we applaud your Mom for her wonderful post about Wonkie especially since she is basically one armed. Wonkie is such a sweet looking woofie and it makes our blood boil to think he was mistreated. With a cute face like he has we are certain he'll find a home very soon filled with ONLY loving hands.
Hugs from your BFFF,
Madi and give Mom a gentle hug from us too

Stella said...

Hi to the Momster! When I wrote you yesterday I thought it was your right arm that had been hurt, which is why I asked if you could MOUSE! But its Lefty, right?

Wonkie is a doll and I hope he finds that right place very soon. Makes me sad that things scare him so much.

Your poor Mom - we hope she is feeling a lot better soon and that her arm heals well! That does not sound much fun at all! Murray got very concerned when we read the post together! Sending lots of love and hugs!!

Pups, Peas and ibuProfin. Sounds good to us!

Wonkie is a cutie. Hope someone has enough love to be patient with him for just a while.


Gracie =^o.o^= said...

Will send good throughts and purrs that your sweet Wonkie will find a furever home.
Also, wondering if you could do me a favor. I wanted to visit Remington and cannot leave a comment. I saw that you are able to. If you could let him know that his comments are not set up in pop up so I can now visit. This can be done by going into blogger and changing those settings. Or if you have them email me at: gracie1915@frontier.com
I can let them know myself. He is a good friend and I still would want to visit with him. Thanks.

We are hoping for a Forever Home for Wonkie too!!!

Yea,,, that Lightning is back to normal, now just to keep him under control. We wish it was that easy for momster!
Sending healing thoughts your way!

Wyatt said...

We need to visit more often. We missed Lightning's trip to the vet, we missed your broken arm and surgery. Yikes...you had a lot of drama in the last few days!
Hope you are both on a speedy road to recovery.
We like your little rescue pup. So cute. We're always shocked at how these dogs just become strays and are out there fending for themselves. We hope he finds a home real soon!

Wyatt, Stanzie and Mom
