Rehoming Rocket

12 Mar

Poor Violet!


Not only did she get drenched and muddy, but her life is about to change forever.

We met at a park yesterday for Violet and her family to meet Rocket…


…a two year old boy who needs a new home. His mom had a stroke and can’t take care of him any more and Violet’s parents want a playmate for her.

In spite of the torrential rain, things went well. It wasn’t love at first sight for the two dogs, but that rarely happens. They sniffed each other and walked nicely side by side. While they walked Violet’s family had a little meeting and decided that, yes, they’d like to adopt him.

We made a plan – in the park, in the rain – to transfer Rocket to his new home on Friday. His invalid mom wasn’t at this meeting so she needs a chance to say goodbye. We will all meet again at our vet’s office, where Rocket will get a microchip and a once over before going to his new home.

    Awwww! Such a win-win: Rocket gets a loving home and Violets gets a playmate. What a wonderful slice.

    I’m so glad Rocket has found a new home. I love that you are rescuing Basset hounds. That is so awesome! Keep up the good work! 🙂

    A happy/sad story – I love that Rocket will have a new home but it must be hard for his owner to let him move on. What a great things you are helping with!

    I’m glad you could find Rocket a new home. Hopefully he’ll like having a sibling.
