Hi everyone,

We now have Moose and he is a sweetheart. We picked him up this A.M. from Jude with SpayLee. She got him from the shelter yesterday afternoon and kept him overnight. He is blk/tan, neutered (Thursday) male who stands 14" tall and weighs aprox 20-25 lbs. Even though he is oversized he is really pretty and to my inexperienced eyes has excellent confirmation. He isn't good on a leash AT ALL but he responds well (better) with a choke chain. On our way back into town we stopped off at the respective adoptive parents house to see how their male dog and Moose would respond to one another. They did GREAT, we were there for an hour and there were NO FIGHTS, YEAH~!!!!! The soon to be adoptive parents fell in love with him and can't wait till I let them have him tomorrow. I didn't leave him tonight b/c I didn't have the IMPS contract with me so...

Mark another one up for IMPS

Sorry, I forgot to mention that Moose was the FIRST dog EVER to be released to a rescue group from this KILL SHELTER. We owe many thanks to Jude with SpayLee for this dogs life!

We all owe a VERY big thank you to Lonnie because Judy trusted Imps so much that she signed for Moose even though her husband said he was out of there if she brought home another rescue.....Angie had planned to take him and her husband said something similiar...so in a panic I called Lonnie and she drove a long way to save him and all these marriages:-).
The new owners were surposed to get another dog that had been promised to Imps but that fell thu and they were very dissappointed....but looks like everything worked out just great.
Thanks everyone involved.

Hi everyone,

Well, Florida's latest rescue has left for his new home. The new owner were so excited to get him they were knocking on my door EARLY this morning. They came with a new crate, collar, leash and doggie treats. They watched all of his antics and he gave them LOTS of kisses. It was almost as if he knew that they were his new parents. It was just too cool watching the three of them. They have renamed him "Buddy", they felt he just didn't look like a Moose. I thought that was a compliment to him (Buddy) since their other MinPin is very small (10"). Thank you Petie for all of your care and concern for this big guy.

This is the latest update on how Buddy (Moose-Ft. Meyers rescue) is doing in his new home. Cyndi has phoned me a few times and she is HOOKED and her only complaint is with his housebreaking. I gave her a few suggestions on this but if anyone has any help on this one I will forward them on to her. Oh yea, her other complaint is that this 25# dog feels that he has to lay on top of her instead of beside her~!! LOL

<<buddy is getting along fine here i really think he's happy, him and puppy are becoming buds. they both have to sleep with me one on each side . i bought a crate for buddy and puppy they seem to like it. buddy is a very alert dog. he is also very nosy if anyone is out side he has to go and investigate . his only bad habbit is when i lay on the couch he has to lay on top of me. thats going to be a hard one. was wondering how to get him to control his bathroom skills without caging all the time i like him out when i;m home so we can spend time together but if he has to go he just goes. and doesnt tell me..even if i take him out he will dhis business but if he has to go again he will just go. but if he's in the cage he can hold it.. i blocked off the rest of the house so he has to stay in the same room with me but that doesnt help he will go well the boys are playing have a nice day>>

<<took buddy to the vet for his first visit he did good although the vet is concerned he looks like he has some sort of mange but the doctor says it could be nerves from his experiance so we are keeping an eye on him he does have two eye infections we have medicine for that and he got his shot the shelter said to muzzle him but he didnt need it. he was a very good boy. although he wanted to fight with all the other dogs there.. there was a BIG dog the size of a saint bernard he thought he was going to beat him up. he was so funny i had to keep him in the crate cause i couldnt hold him any more he scratched up my arms..just wanted to let all know my buddy even protected me from the mean doctor.. he was surprised when he found out it was his doctor not mine. my buddy is doing real well he doesnt go poo in the house as much he is holding it longer than two hours... i just wanted to keep everyone up to date again thank you so much for him he is my sweety. and we love him alot..>>
