Her eyes met mine as she walked down the corridor peering apprehensively into the kennels. I felt her need instantly and knew I had to help her. I wagged my tail, not too exuberantly, so she wouldn't be afraid.
As she stopped at my kennel I blocked her view from a little accident I had in the back of my cage. I didn't want her to know that I hadn't been walked today. Sometimes the shelter keepers get too busy and I didn't want her to think poorly of them.
As she read my kennel card I hoped that she wouldn't feel sad about my past. I only have the future to look forward to and want to make a difference in someone's life.
She got down on her knees and made little kissy sounds at me. I shoved my shoulder and side of my head up against the bars to comfort her. Gentle fingertips caressed my neck; she was desperate for companionship.
A tear fell down her cheek and I raised my paw to assure her that all would be well. Soon my kennel door opened and her smile was so bright that I instantly jumped into her arms. I would promise to keep her safe. I would promise to always be by her side. I would promise to do everything I could to see that radiant smile and sparkle in her eyes. I was so fortunate that she came down my corridor. So many more are out there who haven't walked the corridors. So many more to be saved. At least I could save one.
I rescued a human today.
Norwegian Buhund Rescue
We are serious about making sure all Norwegian Buhunds have the proper and right home. This breed is highly active and loves to be in company with their owners. Once in a while there is not a good match. As a Buhund breeder we accept all of our puppies back in our home regardless of age or condition. We also accept other Buhunds to our farm / kennel. We are a west coast foster home for the Norwegian Buhund.
If you find you cannot keep your Buhund and need us to come get him / her and then foster him / her until we can find a proper home. PLEASE contact us. PLEASE do not abandon your Buhund or give him to a shelter.
If you are a shelter and you think you have a Buhund and want one of us to help you determine that or to help investigate a lost Buhund. Feel free to contact us.
Our goal is to never have a Buhund in a shelter or put down due to not being wanted. All Buhunds are welcomed at our farm for foster care.
Thank you. -CL-
