Well Kirby went to a new home on trial today. Its funny how things work out. I had several people I was interviewing and talking to about Kirby but as soon as he broke his foot they all lost interest, but one person. She is a student here locally, has raised and worked with rescue dogs, had corgis, and her last dog came from an abusive home. She asked all the right questions and gave me all the right answers to the questions I asked. She has no other dogs and is home most of the time, except about 2 or so hours when she is gone to class. She is looking for an exercise buddy and Kirby loved her immediately. She signed and agreed to a trial period and if it doesn't work out now or in the future she will be returning him to me. Itold her about his antics and she wanted to get him asap because she wants him settled into her home before school starts. She also lives so close she was excited about the idea of Kirby and Franklin play dates. I think both will love seeing each other, but Franklin was just too overwhelmed with Kirby's constant presence. I'm feeling good about this. She is going to follow up with his rehab and getting him back to being a 4 legged dog again. I'm really crossing my fingers this works out. I feel no regret right now about this decision and Frank seems happy as a clam enjoying a rawhide in peace tonight. We will see what the next month or two brings.....
I am so glad to hear that things are working out with his new home! :D Even if your home wasn't the perfect fit for him, you were able to rescue him and bring him to a new home that is!
Congrats to you,Franklin,and Kirby!
I'm so happy that you found what sounds like a perfect home for Kirby. I've got my fingers crossed.
