Buddha Bear - A Petfinder Happy Tail

Buddha Bear - posted 11/12/2012

From Shandy of Council Bluffs, IA

My husband and I had been looking to add a member to our family. We were already the happy parents to two corgi sons, so we thought "Why not one more?" So I started my hunt on Petfinder. I found a plethora of available dogs and it broke my heart to see them all. I emailed various shelters and rescues only to be a day late. Then, a couple days before Christmas, a liter of corgi puppies were at the Wahoo Animal shelter. There was one male in the liter. I had found my new son. I filled out the appilcation and got a call back within hours. I made an appointment to go meet the puppies. There was a catch, the boy had already been spoken for, would I be interested in a female? I decided I'd meet the two little girls and decide then. No sooner had I sat down on the floor to play with them, I had one crawl into my lap and look up at me. She got me. Two days before Christmas I took home my Buddha Bear. She is wild and crazy and full of personality. She was the perfect choice. (in the picture, she is the one on the far right with the stipe of white on her face.)
