Follow-up on a couple of recent adoptions

Casey, a red & white border collie was literally minutes from running out of time at the shelter when NCBCRA foster mom Peggy Wilder hustled over to rescue him. Casey is sight impaired, particularly in daylight. Enter his forever rescuer, Tim Ewing. Casey became Quincy and now has a wonderful life with Tim & pack mate, fellow bc, Zona. Read more of this great success story . . .

When Folk Singer pup Mary (now known as LuLu) is at the dog park and is being hassled, say by some snotty Schnauzer, she can tell the offender to step off or she’ll tell her terrier big brother Rufus. If that doesn’t do the trick, she’ll can tell her really, really big brother Irish Wolfhound, Dragon. Thanks to the McDonalds for giving all of these dogs a great home and life!
