Adopt A Dog

August 30, 2008 at 9:12 am 1 comment

My friend JoAnne is a dog magnet. They adore her.  And the feeling is mutual. In addition to her work as a Puppy Raiser and Puppy Counselor for Leader Dogs for the Blind, JoAnne has her own “pack.” It includes dogs that were rejected by Leader Dog, and dogs that somehow just find her.

She has two right now that she’d liket to find homes for. The first is Rags. He’s a chow and sheltie mix, about 3 years old and weighs about 35 pounds. He loves to ride in cars. Rags is a happy dog, constantly on the move. You wouldn’t notice he’s almost totally blind. JoAnne thinks he’d be the perfect dog for a trucker. He’s housebroken and walks on a leash.






Blaze is also looking for a new home with a lot of love. She’s a chow and German shephard mix, about 8 or 9 years old who is very docile. She likes to sleep on the couch. Blaze has been neglected, but is starting to open up. She needs someone to love.

If you live near Flint, Michigan and are interested in adopting either of these dogs, JoAnne wants to meet you. Please email her: .

    I wish I lived near Flint. Those dogs are so cute!

    We had to put down our 16 y/o shelter dog a couple of months ago. We decided that we were a Dog House, and we adopted Molly from a shelter.

    She’s part Wire-haired Dachshund and part something else. She’s partially house-trained, and walks well on a leash. One problem — she sheds!

    She’s a sweetie and very loving. We recommend shelter dogs to all our friends.
