10/6/14 – Happy Morning Update: You may remember the very sad Australian Shepherd left to fend for himself after his owner died. Because of the tenacity of a very kind woman, an excellent rescue organization, and fate, this very handsome guy was saved and is now in his new home. Here is the report from our friend, Morna: ~ diana
“Just wanted to let both of you know that Pongo was adopted today. He went to one of our approved adopters who has owned aussies for many years. Pongo joins a 14 year old female aussie in this home. The man came to Metamora where Pongo was fostered and spent over 2 hours with him this afternoon. He went home to talk to his wife and when she said yes, he drove all the way back to pick him up and take him home.
Thanks to both of you for all of your help. Without you both bringing his plight to our attention I’m afraid he might not have had such a good outcome.
If he sends us some pictures of him, I’ll forward them to you. I’m attaching some of the pix that I used to post him for adoption. The man who adopted him emailed me within hours of my posting him. He is a great dog and very spry for his age. His bloodwork was like that of a much younger dog. He LOVES stuffed animal toys so this boy was a very much loved dog by someone who from what we understood passed away.
Any updates, I’ll pass along to both of you.
Many thanks again!!! Morna”
