Today on our blog we are spotlighting two adorable dogs who have been adopted into a fabulous home. Chico & Lucy are both rescues, one from the west coast and the other from the east coast. Learn all about them below, as told by their mom Patricia. Keep Calm & Adopt On!
*What is your name?
Patricia & Jeff Morrison (filled out by Patricia)
*Where are you from?
St. John’s, NL and live in Fort McMurray, AB
*What is your pet(s): (Age, Breed & Name)?
*Lucy – will be 10 on December 21 & she is Chihuahua mix
*Chico – estimated between 3-5 – we gave him his new birthday as July 18 (they day we got him and brought him home) and we said that he was 4 and celebrate July 18 each year after and he is also Chihuahua mix
*What are some interesting facts about your pet(s)?
Lucy was adopted as a pup from the SPCA Bay of Islands, Corner Brook, NL – she has many nicknames – Chicken Licken, Poopy Pants and my husband calls her the most spoiled dog in Fort McMurray. She Smiles!! And loves to suck her feet!!
Chico we recently rescued from the SPCA Puerta Vallarta, Mexico. I follow them on FB and saw Chico(Formerly Trick) and fell in love. I then found out he was being fostered in Vancouver so I started to talk to my husband Jeff. We decided to go through the adoption process and a couple of days later we were told that we could adopt! Within 5 days we were both on a plane to Vancouver where on July 18, 2015 we picked up our Chico. He came into the Sanctuary in PV with an injured leg. They operated and then aqua therapy but it didn’t work and ended with amputated. But you wouldn’t believe how resilient this pup is…nothing stops him.
*What is your pet(s) favorite trick?
*Lucy smiles when she is happy
*Chico amazes up every day – he likes to jump after flies
*Where is your pet(s) favorite place to go?
they both love to hear – wanna go for a walk??
*Perspective on Adopting a Rescue?
would rescue always – would never purchase a particular breed (We like mutts too!)
*What is your favorite quote?
“A house is never lonely where a loving dog waits” and “You don’t own a dog, you have a dog and your dog has you”
*Do your pets (s) love to go for car rides?
Sometimes – not the ones that end in nail clipping or vet visits
*Anything extra you would like to add?
I think that giving more awareness to the SPCA PV would help so many more animals. How easy and affordable the adoption fees are considering costs of flights to get them here..
