Hercules Gets a Ride
We had a special treat with a rescue a
few weekends ago. Hercules is a ten year old Rottie whose mama
bought him as a puppy. When she died, her widower was unable
to care for him so he surrendered him to a shelter where he spent
a month before he was rescued by Southern States Rescued Rottweilers.
Seventeen volunteers transported him in stages from Virginia
to his new home in Oklahoma City.
He was very nervous around men as he had
always been a "mama's boy". And he has arthritis so
he had difficulty getting into and out of vehicles, frequently
requiring chicken nuggets to lubricate his extractions. We kept
him here for his Saturday overnight and took him to Monterey,
TN, on Sunday morning.
But imagine the pleasure we all got a
day or so later when his new mama Keren posted this photo in
the Facebook run sheet we used to coordinate the transport.
Here are a couple of photos from our transfer
