Poco - A Petfinder Happy Tail
Poco - posted 05/08/2013
From Anna of Princeton, MN
When I wanted to find a friend for my Lab, Deja, I wanted to find a specific temperament, size and gender. I found Secondhand Hounds with the help of Petfinder and after contacting Secondhand Hounds, they helped me find the perfect friend for Deja and a new companion for myself as well. This perfect buddy was Poco, an Italian Greyhound/Beagle mix.
When I first met Poco, I learned of that he wasn't treated kindly previously, and need extra time and patience around new people. However, I learned that he absolutely ADORED children. I knew then, I had to have him in my life.
Since adopting Poco over a year ago, he's made so much progress with new people and is such a fun little dog. Sadly, I had to make the decision to put Deja down in January. Like most Labs, she suffered from hip problems and arthritis. Even though I miss her so much, Poco has helped me through the days when sadness overcasts happiness and the pain of losing a friend rains on your heart. He is a true little friend and I am truly blessed to have such a loving, funny, goofy and loyal dog in my life.
