... this weekend. Reba (formerly known as Misty) was found wandering around Kingwood (Houston) starving.
We drove up to 'meet' her, taking the Cavaliers (avatar pic) with us. I'd made up my mind to NOT commit to taking her if there were any 'signs' of problems other than the reported potty issues. Potty issues we can handle, but not fear of people, aggressiveness or extreme submission toward other dogs, etc.
Of course, she was wonderful. Obviously 'belonged' somewhere at one point... well mannered, not scared of a leash, and stands up and stands still for thorough brushing. Speculation is that she's either a poorly bred Cocker, or a poorly bred Cavalier, or a mix of the two, maybe 3-5 years old, and at 14lbs, on the petite side.
She now has two brothers and two sisters, a nice bed(s) to sleep on, couches and chairs and welcome laps to sit on, and she'll never be hungry again.
