Whether you’re looking for a larger dog or a smaller dog, Orphans of the Storm® has them all! This week, I met one dog from each end of the spectrum.
Seguoi the two-year-old Chihuahua mix is a little cutie. He barks a bit when you walk past his kennel, but that’s because he’s saying, “Look at me!” Once you do stop and say hello, the barking stops. He also didn’t make a peep the entire time we were out on our walk. Seguoi may look like a lapdog, and he certainly can be, but he also likes going for walks and was eager to take the lead.
Seguoi gets along with other dogs. He’s currently sharing his kennel with Mini Me, who is closer to his size, but he also doesn’t seem to mind bigger dogs (unlike some other Chihuahuas who have “Little Dog Syndrome” and try to act tough) and basically ignored Diamond, who was in the run next to us and wanted to race. Seguoi was fine with being picked up, and I set him on the bench next to me where he seemed to enjoy having a new, taller view of the world. Stop by soon to see if Seguoi is the pooch for you!
Blondie the three-year-old Husky/Great Dane mix is already becoming a volunteer favorite. As soon as I walked into the shelter this week, one of the other volunteers said, “You have to take out this new Husky!” and I’m glad I followed their advice. He is a very handsome boy, with that blonde fur and bright blue eyes. Although Blondie was a little shy at first, he ended up being very easy-going.
Blondie politely sniffed the dog on the other side of the fence while we were in the run, but mostly kept to himself as he followed his nose. He occasionally stopped by me so I could pet his back. Then we went for a walk around the woodland preserve, where Blondie showed off what an excellent walking companion he is. He didn’t pull at all, and stayed either right by my side or just a couple steps ahead of me. When we stopped at a bench, Blondie gave me a doggy kiss and rested his chin in my lap. Come in soon to meet Blondie!
I also saw Bella (one of my personal faves–if big dogs are your style, check her out!), Candice, Duke, Lucky, Lucy, Merlin, Mia (whose brother Marley has already been adopted, so if you only have room for one big dog at the moment, now is a good time!), Miller, Molly (who greeted me with a big doggy hug and doggy kisses), Trixie, and Zoey.
