What rescue dog are you currently obsessed with?

I try not to look around so I don't get obsessed. But I'm still operating on the plan to eventually get Orson a seeing-eye companion. Sooo, keeping that in mind, he needs an active, lively girl like

She's very cute. I used to think I wanted a Pap as my small dog. Then I spent some time with a couple of them and I was cured.

Me too. My friend has two of them They aren't my kind of dogs. Very cute and fun but too nervous about certain types of handling. I still think they are awefully darn cute.
I am currently obsessed with getting a sighthound as my next rescue,

I fell in love with the Borzio's this weekend. I never knew how nice they were.

Just wondering, since I know nothing about this, Cate. If a dog is supposed to be a seeing-eye companion, should it have a certain sort of temperament? What would dog #2's job entail? I am asking since Sasha especially sounds like a girl who needs a job, and I was thinking that Orson's buddy will have to be more mellow than that.

Come on Melanie, you know as well as I do that small auxiliary dogs don't take up a whole lot of time or space.
It's heart-space I worry about most. That, and I'm having a hard time imagining juggling three leashes while walking around the city. Oh, and that I live in a teeny apartment. &c.
Then again, I do still have Harley's tote bag. I sold her Sherpa carrier, finally, but can't bring myself to get rid of the black shoulder tote I took her to school in. However, Ginger sounds like she might not be the kind of dog who likes going to school, and if I get a small auxiliary dog, I would prefer a dog who liked school. That would be Small Dog's main one-on-one with mommy activity.
I think I'll stop now.
Why? Now, YOU definitely need a second dog.

Heart-space is ever expanding. I'm sure that each person is perfectly capable of fitting in at least a few dozen dogs into that space, and you have lots of vacant spots.

How much more trouble can a 10 lb. dog be? I mean, between your 3 dogs, they still won't be anywhere as big as my 1 dog. You can most likely add 4 or 5 paps before you have to start worrying.
Oh, and that I live in a teeny apartment. &c.

I'm shouldn't even dignify that with an answer. She'll probably occupy as much space as our cell phones do.
Then again, I do still have Harley's tote bag. I sold her Sherpa carrier, finally, but can't bring myself to get rid of the black shoulder tote I took her to school in.

See, there is a reason you couldn't. The tote's still looking for a dog to fit in.
However, Ginger sounds like she might not be the kind of dog who likes going to school, and if I get a small auxiliary dog, I would prefer a dog who liked school. That would be Small Dog's main one-on-one with mommy activity.

This, I'd understand. But, Khan has actually accompanied me to school, and you know how much of a scaredy cat he is. I suppose there is no good way to assess this without meeting her, but if she can at least handle being among a few people who aren't paying attention to her, you're half way there already.
Why? Now, YOU definitely need a second dog.

Oh, I agree. If it were entirely up to me, the second dog would've been home a long time ago. I'm still working on DH, so we'll see. It's kind of unfortunate that most of the dogs I like are boys, and for some reason, I am attracted to breeds with fairly serious dog aggression issues.

It is. I always thought that there would never be more than one space for a girl in my home and now I have five.
Now I did not divide my heart in to pieces,but it seems it expanded. : )

Ahh A dozen dogs is a lot.
I have seven plus a rescue or two always, and it is a lot of work giving them all one on one time.
I was gone for the weekend and hubby was EXHAUSTED for the amount of work it took him to keep everyone amused and content, and I had taken two w ith me so he only had 6 of our dogs, and one rescue to handle.
That, and I'm having a hard time imagining juggling three leashes while walking around the city.

Three are not that m uch of a problem I lived In a studio apartment in Boston and had a Chessie a Newfie and a VERY NUTTY GSP.(ALL MALES BTW)

We managed quite nicely.
Go for it!

I didn't mean concurrently. Over one's lifetime, I'm sure that each of us can fit plenty of dogs into our heart.

One of our volunteers just found out about 2 dogs whose owner has to be moved to a hospice at the end of the month - he's dying. One is a purebred lab, and lab rescue is willing to take him, but this dog is very attached to the GSD-lab mix that he lives with, and lab rescue won't take him, of course. We're hoping that one of the all-breed rescues around here will have the space to take them both in and place them together. If not, the volunteer will take them in at least temporarily, and that'll bring the total number of dogs in her home to 9 (she has 7 of her own).
I can't even imagine.
