IMPS.Rescue in Houston shelter

Mon, 23 Nov 1998 21:25:02 EST - from Wendy

Thought I would give you all an update on the 7yr old bitch at the Houston Shelter. The very nice lady Patti Dotson who adopted the two fat little girls awhile back called me and we called the Shelter and she will get her out in the morning. The lady at the shelter really does not know how old the dog is they are just guessing because she has very bad teeth. I told her that she could still be quite young as MinPin teeth are not always very good. Patti is calling her Vet tomorrow to see about getting her spayed and the teeth cleaned as they would not let her take the bitch until this was guaranteed. I gave the shelter our guarantee that this would be done ASAP. This is a Red bitch, cropped ears and a little on the tubby side!?LOL she has a fat pocket on one hip that they called a tumour and the Vet will check it out but don't think it is anything to worry about. She doesn't look like an older MinPin as she has no grey or white on her so my bet is that she probably isn't much more than 3 or 4 years old. She was a stray that was picked up and brought into the shelter and no one has been looking for her SIGH!!! People!!!! Patti will foster her for a short while but we really need to find her a new home of her own as Patti has her own 3 MinPins, the 2 rescue girls and her neutered male. Once she gets her tomorrow I will find out more about her but the Shelter personnel said she had a good temperament but really loved to EAT!! Sound familiar to any of you LOL Patti does not have many resources so as soon as I get her address I will ask if any of you can spare a few dollars to help pay for her Vet bills so we can get her adopted , hopefully before Christmas
Wendy & Gina and her 2 ?? They need names!!.


She's here

Hi Folks

Well first off I think I did the wrong thing when I signed up to foster. This is s beatiful little lady. Except for the teeth being in really bad shape (seems like alot are missing) she looks to be in great shape. She is little,red ,ears and tail done. This has to be someones pet from the Houston area. according to the Shelter she has only been there since the 17th. I think she has had at least 1 litter but very much has her figure back.She is not over weight but then I like a little meat on the bones.She is a charmer and took to all the others right away. I was told to put her in a private place to eat and leave the room she will bite while eating. I am sosoft hearted that it is already going to be hard to give her up. Oh, by the way we call her Bouncie she is very much so, but very well mannered. She will be easy to place she fits right in and doesn't mind the other Urghins at all. Loves kids to and there where 3 with me 12,9and 8 when I picked her up.
If I missed anything please let me know.
Thanks
Patti and the Herd

Hi All

I don't no how often you want updates, but here it goes. Bouncie had a bath yesterday afternoon. She didn't mind it at all but I figure that is because I took 1 with her. I have a bathtub chair with a hose that is connected to the shower so we were both naked and wet, She cannot eat anything that is not soft she tries but you can tell it hurts. She had a big bowl of Pedigree in sauce and ate that fine. She will carry around a biscuit in her mouth but can't eat it. My son tried to take it and he had to run.I went right up to her and she let me have it. She also sleep in the bed with me and the rest of the herd this bed is getting really crowded now that is me the 4 dogs and 2 kids that end up in there most nights. I sent some pics to the web site they were not the best but will have more later. If I make these posts to long you'll just need to tell me to shut up and let someelse talk awhile. I will keep in touch and Everyone have a HAPPY THANKSGIVING.
Thanks

Ok folks, Bouncie is at the Vet. She had been spayed already and her teeth are not that bad,just a little infection in the gums ,but he is going to clean them and make sure. She has Calcuim deposits in her eyes (never heard of that). The so called tumor on her back is just a fatty deposit. Now she is an old dog somewhere between 8 and 10 but he said also as I did that she had been someones pet because other than what I have told you she was taken good care of. I haven't heard anything on my last post but I know that with the Holiday's everyone is busy. So, I just want to let everyone know where we stand.
Thanks

Hi Everyone

Bouncie is back home. Her teeth are done .pretty and white. None of them had to be pulled. The vet said the reason she won't eat dry food is that she is spoiled not because of the teeth. I think I have a very smart dog here. When everyone else is having there breakfust she will hold out for toast with butter.They all like cabbage even my dob but I had to open all the windows last night as the oder was a little much. I don't no what you call it but she whezzes all the time like can't catch her breath. I'll tell you 1 thing between her and Nick snezzing and I mean very long snezzing spells and the girls grunts and the gas attacks last night this is a noisey place. Oh, can someone tell me about calcuim deposits in the eyes?
Thanks
Patti

Bouncie's new home

Thu, 17 Dec 1998 13:18:12 -0500 - from Petie

This was received by me yesterday...and I thought of Bouncie and sent it on to Patti(pooper48)....who called and made the arrangements to meet with her in Texas on Dec 26 ...so Bouncie will be a surprise present to a very luck lady.

<<Hello,
I am searching for a miniature pincher for my mother. She is 72 years old.
It does not have to be a puppy. We would prefer a female, and older would be fine.
My mother, Sarah, lives in the middle of Texas in the Meadowlakes area.
Her husband said she fell in love with the neighbors dog so we wanted to get her the same.
Can you help. I found one in California, where I live, but it sure would be nicer to find a dog in Texas so we don't have to put him on the airplane.
Of course, it is supposed to be a surprise Christmas present for her.
Do you have any suggestions? I would appreciate any assistance you could give me or referral places to call or contact.

Hi All
Just wanted to give you a quick update on Bouncie. She is in her new home in Marble Falls Texas. Her new owner's are a very nice older couple. They had a new harness and leash and a new blanket when they picked her up. They live right on a Golf course and said they would teach her to play.This summer she will be touring Canada in a motor home. I was very pleased with these folks and I think she will have a great home.I was really upset that I was sending her to a new home ,but once I met them they really made me feel alot better. They will be sending pictures and I will send them on to Mag.
Thanks
Patti

<<Hello Patty,
Our new little friend has become Coco. She is so sweet and wonderful. We all just love her so much!
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR PUTTING US TOGETHER!
We have a bell up for her to touch when she wants to go out. She had taken owner ship of the house, and sleeps under the covers at the foot of Mom's bed. She is right at home here.
Happy New Year to you, and we will stay in touch.
Nancy Kolasinski

Bouncie/Holly

Hi Mag

I don't know how many will remember Bouncie, but she is the rescue (my one and only so far) from the shelter in Houston. I got a pic of her from the new owners today and am sending it to the page. She is doing great her name is Holly and she will be touring Canada this summer in a big motorhome. She has put on some pounds but is working on that and has turned out to be a wonderful pet.

Patti
