Ok Angela. I sent a private message to the new orleans member. I'm not sure if she reads much here anymore though.
Maybe someone that knows her on facebook will see this post and help too.
Here is a thread about getting a new dog and introducing them to your household (for your friend). I know a lot of people just throw all their dogs together and hope things work out but this works better:viewtopic.php?f=6&t=81654
Good luck! Maybe you will get posting rights and can post in the Rescue thread about this pup in a day or so.
