Sweet and shy

Chihuahua for adoption at Marion county Dog Shelter

Bruno

Day 262, 2012 Somedays, a picture really does say 1000 words. As I looked over my photos from the adoptable dogs at the Marion County Dog Shelter last week, I kept coming back to this one.

Bruno was so sweet and so shy. The little ones always want to be picked up, cuddled and loved and Bruno was no exception. We could have spent an entire day just loving him. I’ve mentioned before that the dogs at the shelter are picked up as lost or stray and brought in. They are held for five days in hopes that their family will find them.

I often wonder what happened that they weren’t found. It’s really easy to just call and see if there is a possible match and go take a quick look. Yet week after week these amazing and wonderful dogs are available for adoption.

It’s a good thing there is no room at the inn because every week we meet a dog that would be a perfect pet. Bruno, I just know your forever family is out there.
