Beau (sitting on the floor) is a 7-year-old Bichon who lost one eye to glaucoma. He came to Paws in August and is just the sweetest little guy.
A champion cuddler, Beau gets along with other dogs, doesn't mind gentle children, and loves everyone he meets.
The catch? Beau's previous owners didn't teach him to eliminate outdoors, so he has occasional accidents inside.
Our 1st goal was to try to housebreak him. Not an easy task in a kennel filled with 20+ other dogs who also needed attention. Goal #2 was to find him the right home - one with a patient owner who would continue the task of working with him until he understood that eliminating outside was oh-so-much-better than doing so inside - also not an easy task.
This past Sunday, Paws held its 3rd Annual Bark in the Park fundraiser, and Beau was one of the shelter dogs who attended. Aside from the fact that his "Adopt Me" donation vest was stuffed to the brim with donations (he's a charmer, I'm telling you!), he attracted quite a following of people interested in him... Including this lovely couple who have a very sweet and loving 7-year-old Bichon of their own! Was it Karma?
Beau, Molly, and this couple spent quite a while together at the park on Sunday. One thing led to another, and by Wednesday Beau not only had a wonderful new home, he had a new girlfriend, too! Just look at the smiles on all four faces!
I love a happy ending, and I don't think it could have been better than this!
