Those of you who follow me on Instagram and watch my Stories may remember seeing my conversation about having puppy fever, and how we probably weren’t going to act on it until after our June beach vacation. I was “looking” though, and made sure I was signed up with some local rescue groups so I could be kept up-to-date with pups coming through the rescues.
On March 17, I received a call from a lady who had rescued a puppy from traffic. She found him dodging cars and immediately saved him, even though she was unable to keep him (she already owned an elderly dog with a lot of health needs so a puppy was not an option for her at this time). She took him home, bathed him, and contacted a dog rescue to see if they could help her find a home for him. They gave her my phone number because they knew I was looking for a scruffy little wiry-haired puppy. I asked her a lot of questions about him and his demeanor, behavior trends, health status, etc. just so I could get a good idea on whether he’d be a good fit for my family. She sent me pictures of him and I absolutely fell in love. His ears and little beard stole my heart.
On March 18, my family drove to her house and this puppy greeted us with so much joy and love, and we just knew he was meant to come home with us.
So he did.
And we named him Waldo.
