"ohhhh wow! i had the best experience this morning!! it could have been such a bad thing...
BUT: i saw a dude run across BUSY broad st and right behind him was this tiny yellow lab-like puppy. it appeared to me he dropped the puppy off at the car dealership and tried to run. i was driving and watching in my rear view mirror and circled around to try and go get the puppy - praying traffic would stop! the puppy just stood petrified in the middle of the street!
and, then, a suburban stopped right in front of it. a guy jumped out and got on the side street. he got down on his knees and called the puppy....the puppy went running to him shaking his entire little body with pure joy and innocence!!!!!!!!!!!!! the guy scooped him up in his arms! and the puppy was wagging his tail looking up at him! it was soooo sweet!
i drove up and the guy asked if the puppy was mine. i told him no but that i had seen someone run right before the puppy was in the street.
i hope he gets to keep him! if not, we talked about maybe taking the puppy to freret st and michelle at zeus' place. either way, that puppy's whole life changed in a matter of seconds. it was awesome."
Indeed - her life changed and it is awesome...
Her angel (the suburban) is Matthew. He took her home and gave her a bath to get all of the nasty fleas off. Matthew phoned me because he heard that we may be able to help. He rushed over and we had already made the calls necessary to start getting her ready for her forever home. Before he left, I asked him to name her and he choose Amelia because she was flying all over Earhardt and Broad! I can't say enough about Matthew and if he is willing, we will be certain to make sure she gets to spend time with her angel!
He put her in my arms at 10am and she has been to the Vet and is resting at her Foster Home.
Amelia is eight pounds, eleven ounces. She is approximately eight weeks old. Our wonderful Vet at Riverlands Animal Hospital is pretty certain that she is a Rat Terrier/Lab Mix. We got her first set of shots, etc... naturally, she is full of worms so we are treating that.
She is the most amazing little girl... we cuddled all morning. Her Foster Mommy (Buzi) and Foster Mom (Sawyer) are making sure she is starting potty and crate training TODAY. Buzi has a few kitty cats so she will learn to love kitty cats too.
We are looking for a home for sweet baby Amelia. We would sure appreciate if you would please cross post for us. If you are interested, please email us @NOLAPetCare@aol.com.
Matthew & HY - thanks for saving her life... When I think about the person that dumped her in the middle of a busy intersection in New Orleans - I want to punch him in the head but HY (Facebook) is spot on - her life will be awesome now and she deserves it!
We will post more photographs soon.
