We introduced Xavier to another dog! All part of getting to know Xavier a little better in his overnight at my house!

It's Xavier's sleepover at my house! We sprung the big guy from the shelter for an overnight to get a bit more information on him. So far, so good!

We are so excited to be able to host Xavier. From emaciated stray to happy and healthy, Xavier has made quite the recovery with the help of his friends at South Kingstown shelter.

Stay tuned for more on his weekend at my house as we learn more...

From our friends at Our Pack, Inc.:

This is an example of what we talk about in the Our Pack article titled, Dogs and Backyards. Fence type barriers can create a very different behavior than the one often seen without a barrier. And of course you may still see the same behavior without it, but often this is what you'll see. Look at this video and read our article. [ Ourpack.org Link ]

Check out Mama's special girl, Mercy, meeting young Riley at Pawtucket Shelter. Both of these dogs are looking for their forever homes. They are both pretty special and would be great "starter dogs" for some lucky adopters.

Please note, Riley was just fine after his unfortunate body slam in the video; poor little guy got too excited for his own good!

You can head down to the shelter and...

Welcome to Handsome Dan's Rescue, Tulip!

Tulip has been waiting at Pawtucket Shelter for many months. She was found unresponsive in a hot car on a summer day, saved by the heroic Pawtucket staff, treated at the vet and has been waiting-lonely and crestfallen-in a kennel ever since. Tulip is the kind of dog that lives for her humans. She loves them all, big and small. She lives to love and...

Guess who is coming to my house for a sleepover this weekend?! Xavier from South Kingstown shelter!

Xavier was in rough shape when he was found as an emaciated stray and he's been at the shelter for a while getting back to his regal self. Now we want to see how he does in a home setting.

See ya soon, Xavier!

Here he is at class last week with Dave.

Kara and Boo working hard at class. Boo is learning lots of great skills so that when that lucky person takes him home he is already the best dog he can be. For more info on this adoptable hunk, check out his profile at handsomedansrescue.org.
