Orphans of the Storm® Dogs Play in the Snow

It was the first real snow of the year, and the dogs at Orphans of the Storm® were (mostly) excited to play in it!

Wednesday the five-year-old Mountain Cur mix has the cutest little bob tail, and when it wags, the entire back half of her body wags along with it. Wednesday can be a little shy when she first comes out of her kennel but gets more playful the longer she’s out. She enjoys romping around the Enrichment Park and also likes keeping an eye on things happening on the other side of the fence.

Wednesday likes to lead the way on walks and can occasionally pull on the leash, but I think that was just because she wanted to get through the snow faster. Wednesday is a play group regular and prefers to be with the gentler dogs. She’s also good at engaging with some of the shier dogs who aren’t sure how to play yet. If you’re looking for a sweet and gentle girl, come in soon to meet Wednesday!

Spooky the two-year-old Hound mix is the opposite of spooky! She’s happy, playful, and affectionate. Spooky is excellent at playing fetch. She drops the ball or toy right at your feet and bounces on her front paws while she waits for you to throw it again. She’s an active girl and only stopped fetching when I stopped throwing. She didn’t seem possessive of her toys and was fine with being pet while holding one in her mouth.

Spooky is so pretty

Spooky is a pretty easy walking companion on the leash. She walks at a nice pace and rarely pulls. Spooky enjoys getting attention and will happily stand by your side while you pet her. She also gets along with other dogs and likes participating in play groups. She’s even made friends with one of the pickier dogs! Spooky also has the potential to be a family dog living with children. Be sure to say hello to Spooky on your next visit to the shelter!

Spooky doesn’t mind the snow

Peggy the two-year-old Hound/Labrador Retriever mix is a little shy at first but gets more comfortable the longer she spends with you. When I sat down on the ground, she came right over to snuggle with me and enjoyed getting gentle pets. Peggy did a little bit of exploring in the off-leash yard but mostly wanted to stay by me.

Peggy perked up during our walk

Peggy is great at walking on the leash. She stays right by your side and doesn’t pull at all. She started to get a little ahead of me during our walk around the trail, but I think that was because she was getting cold! Peggy attends play groups with other gentle and easy-going dogs, so she has potential to go home with another gentle dog. Stop by the shelter soon to meet Peggy!

Peggy is looking for some TLC

I also saw Badger, Brice, Rascal, Sirius, Turbo, and Winston. On this very chilly past Sunday, I also took quick walks with not-yet-profiled dogs Apollo (who takes treats very gently), Cheri (who likes to snuggle), and Chester (who is a perfect leash-walking companion).

Play group this week included Badger, Big Boy, Brunhilda, Cocoa, Polly, Prince, Rudgie, Spike, Spooky, Turbo, Wednesday, and Winston, as well as not-yet-profiled dogs Amy Pond, Buck, Buddy, Cheri, Chili, Flower, Fratt, Frosty, Gigi, Lola, Rhino, Scooby, and Sneakers.
