From Foxy to Doxie

MERCI:  Hey, look what followed us home Sunday night.

SAM:  We're not joking.  This little doxie mix did follow Merci and I home when we walked Jan Sunday evening.

MERCI:  And we're not happy about it.  We recognize her.  Remember the mean territorial dog that has been coming after us on our walks?  We posted about him in Vinegar and Hot Pepper back in February.

SAM:  Well, shortly after that first encounter, a small doxie started running around there too, but that one was scared of everything and didn't bother us.  We did notice when the woman was leaving she would holler and a doxie would come running. 

MERCI:  Around here if a person is evicted or leaves things behind, it is piled out by the curb and people going by stop to pick through it and take what they want.  There was such a pile in front of that house Saturday morning.  That always makes Jan sad.

SAM:  I told this pup we didn't want her company but she ignored my growls and came anyway.  And Jan was worried about her having been left behind when the tenant moved.  There are at least one coyote and one fox in this area.  (We met Miss Fox Saturday evening and Mr. Coyote last summer.)

BUDDY:  Marcus and I weren't thrilled when this stranger walked in but she just wants to eat, play and feel secure so she doesn't bother me.

MARCUS:  Well, I don't like her!  I was locked in the crate when she came in, which was a bad start, and then she wanted to play while I was playing soccer.  When I tried to play with her, she'd run off screaming like I was killing her.

BUDDY:  Yes, she is afraid of everything but you didn't have to keep beating her up.  Now she's terrified of you.

MERCI:  Jan called around to try to find someone who could take the dog in overnight so she wouldn't have to be afraid or locked in a crate, but no one had any room.

SAM:  I don't want her here but I do feel kind of sorry for her.  Jan is going to have to call city Animal Control in the morning and send her to the shelter.  She will be safer there than on the streets.  Miss Peggy is already working to find a rescue to take her when her time will be up.

MERCI:  I spent some time in the shelter before I came to live here.  I hope this doxie finds a home right away.

SAM:  I wonder what happened to the mean, territorial dog?  Did they abandon him too?

UPDATE:  The sweet Miss Doxie is on her way to the shelter and hopefully to a better life!  


  1. Oh no, how sad that she was left behind. She's adorable and I hope she finds a new home soon.

  2. What a sweet little girl she is. Thank you for taking her in and getting her to a safe place. People are just.... we can't put the words we want to on a family friendly blog.

  5. Don't get us started on "people" (can I even call them that?) who leave their animals behind. We are purring the little doxie does find a better life now.

  6. OMD OMD OMD Blessings On You Miss Jan fur taking the scared little girrrrrl into your home and giving her the shelter she needed... and making arrangements fur her to be taken to where they can find her a GOOD and LOVING home. THANK YOU !!!!

  7. We sure hope that cutie gets a good home super soon!

  8. Sweet little dogs like that can almost always find a home if the shelter lets the public know they have a cute Doxie.

  9. That is so sad, I am glad your Mom rescued her. I don't know how people live with themselves when they abandon an animal.

  10. What a sad story ! Miss Doxie is lucky to have met you and your mom. We hope she finds a home soon. Purrs

  11. That is a very sad story...we hope Miss Doxie finds her furr-eer home real soon!!

  13. Left behind? How sad!! Hopefully a furever family is on the door step to the shelter!

    Your Pals,

  14. Sad that a precious puppy got left behind. Being friendly and trying on her own to find a home seems like someone would love to have her because clearly she has love to give.
    Thanks you for stopping by my blog and wishing me well.
