"Tomorrow" needs a home today

Why buy from a breeder when there are plenty of homeless pups in shelters???

"Tomorrow" needs a home today

Postby pacopoe » Sun Apr 24, 2011 1:52 pm

We've got ourselves a foster project. She's pretty awesome and will make a great dog for somebody. Her only glaring issue is that she's in an awkward growth stage and she's currently got a pinhead and her back end is taller than her front. She also likes to give kisses so will have to learn to wait until instructed to do so instead of just jumping up and doing it on her own. She's fine with people, dogs of all sizes, kids, etc.

She is a nice, nice dog who got dealt a crappy situation (someone bought her from a BYB friend then proceeded to get thrown in jail on a 4th DUI charge, family is losing the house, etc etc.) so we're working on making it right.

Tomorrow needs a home today!

Image

Meet “Tomorrow,” the latest Paco Collars foster project. She’s a blue-brindle 4 month old pit mix girl with the most stunning eyes. She’s super into people, very appropriate with dogs of all sizes, not mouthy at all, quick to learn, and sweet as a bug.

Image

She came to us through an acquaintance of the extended Paco Collars family. Since one of our own took great pains to make sure she was properly socialized and trained from a young age despite her being someone else’s dog, we couldn’t just let her get dumped at the shelter when the owner (thankfully) realized a new home was best for her.

The good news is that she’s an easy, young dog who has made herself right at home with the rest of the crew.

Image

She will be spayed shortly, after which she’ll be ready to go to a new home. She’s easy enough for a first time dog owner who has done their research and is ready to take the plunge, or as an addition to a social pack. She’ll most likely end up being in the 60 lb range with a taller, leaner figure. We’re working on basic obedience, crate training, potty training, and socialization.

Image

If you’re interested in adding this beauty to your life, read up on responsible ownership (http://badrap.org/rescue/responsible.html) and contact us at info@pacocollars.com. We’ll be screening with application, home check, and references so be prepared to supply those.

We want to get this girl in her new home soon so someone can enjoy her puppyhood… right now we’re hogging it and enjoying every minute!

Image

p.s. oh yeah, she comes with a free Paco Collar ;)

Oh my goodness!
You have no idea how badly I wish I was in a stable place and ready for a second dog. She looks like my perfect next dog!

She is such a cutie! I would apply for her in a heartbeat if I lived closer and had the room for her! Good luck, Tomorrow!

Update: Tomorrow has a meet and greet this upcoming Tuesday! It's a great home and looks promising, but if for some reason it doesn't work out there are two more homes in line that also look pretty darn good. For a while she had no good prospects, then all three came at once and they all seem great so we're just going in order of interest.

The $100 adoption fee will go to Berkeley Animal Care Services since they covered the cost of her spay.

Tomorrow's future is looking bright! :peace:

Update, none of Tomorrow's prospects panned out, so she's still looking. She's now 5 months old but hasn't grown much and her manners are getting better by the day. She will be an awesome dog for the right person!

I just saw her listed on craigslist and was wondering what happened. Looks like she has a new name now too. I hope something pans out for her soon - it seems like she has already been bounced around quite a bit for such a youngster. If we get anyone looking for a nice little girl, we will pass them your way. She sounds really adoptable.

That would be great, she really is quite an adaptable and adoptable dog. Her current foster home was working quite hard to keep her, but the landlord finally put his foot down and, in the meantime, the other prospects vanished (or, in the case of one, impulse-acquired another puppy). She really deserves to get into a permanent situation sooner rather than later, so we're doubling up our efforts. She's good with kids, can get along with dogs, is beginning nosework classes... she's kind of a catch!

Ana- do you have any videos of her? That's what sold people on Doc. Every single app I got told me it was something in the video that attracted them to him. (I usually ask applicants what attracted them to THIS dog out of all the ones out there, it gives me a better idea on what to make sure I try to include in future dogs ads!) I think short vids really help people see a dog/puppies personality more. PetFinder allows you to attach a short vid.
Where is she now?

Don't want to jinx it but since the new home (Alex) has already solidified the exact time he's picking her up tomorrow, I think it's safe to say that Tomorrow has a new home! :peace:

Thanks so much Kingsgurl for recommending such a great home. I do think it's going to be a great match and he's got some great resources at his disposal. It's refreshing to see someone who is so open to learning and wants to (and does) do things by the book. She will be in great hands.
