SHELTER SUNDAY: Meet Hund (pit bull mix) and Jinxy and Katie (white and gray cats)
Blue Chip Farm Animal Refuge teams up with NEPA Scene every week for Shelter Sunday, a post that features one dog, one cat, and occasionally some surprises up for adoption in the hopes of finding them a loving home.
Blue Chip Farm (974 Lockville Rd., Dallas) is a no-kill shelter, a place where no animal is too old or too unwanted to find a warm bed, good food, and most of all, love. Their mission is to provide a sanctuary where older, stray, abandoned, sick, or abused animals can wait to be adopted or simply live out their lives in safety and peace.
Visiting hours are Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday from noon-5 p.m. Other hours are available by appointment. Call 570-333-5265 or visit bcfanimalrefuge.org for more information.
Hello, world! My name is Hund, and I had such a good day, I just had to share.
Today, I met this nice lady, Alison. I don’t know what a trainer is, but I do know that every time I sat for her or shook her hand, she gave me a treat! How easy is that? Then, I got to be in the meet and greet room, and I met a stranger and was very polite. I got to do some of my favorite things; I gave kisses and got to be a lapdog. And if that wasn’t enough, I met this pretty cocker spaniel named Rosie. I was a perfect gentleman, of course. Next, I met this dude, Toby, who is a Norwegian elkhound. We were cool together; Toby is just a big teddy bear.
Then, I met Grinch, the cat. I will tell you what happened, but you need to keep this between us. If word gets out to the other shelter dogs, I will be the laughing stock. Um, I was, well, scared of the cat. Please don’t tell!
I ended my visit with Alison; she told me she thought I would be a good candidate for Canine Good Citizen training. I try so hard to be a good boy, and everyone at the shelter is so proud of me.
Well, it’s time for lights out in the kennel – time for me to dream of the day I have a warm bed to sleep in and someone to love me forever.
