By Tricia Walker, Foster Mom
Why did you decide to foster Rey?
Well, I am a total sucker for brindle dogs, but really there is a giant pet over population problem in Georgia. Rey was hit by a car and ended up at Animal Control in Fayetteville. Once her stray hold was up she was going to be euthanized due to her broken leg.
Does Rey have any nicknames?
Yes! Fats, Hippo-Dippo, Fat Puppy, Chub-pub and Mush. She’s a big dog, that’s just her body type, but none of it is muscle.
How would you describe her in three words?
Playful, goofy, loving
What is Rey’s favorite thing?
Describe Rey’s perfect day:
I think that’s pretty easy. She would probably like to go for a run, chase her buddy Bumble Bee around the backyard, go out to eat with us and then end the day with some couch-bone-chewing-snuggle time.
Describe Rey’s ideal family:
Rey would love a family who will include her in whatever they’re doing. She’s also truly good in public and would love it if her family took her to brunch and for walks when the weather is nice. She’s already had a rough start to life and is currently one of several foster dogs, so she needs a family that is going to make her their number one. She loves to be by your side, cuddle, chew her bone and is pretty attentive to her human.
She’s only about two, so she has a lot of playful energy. She loves to play with toys and is pretty obsessed with other dogs. However since she’s a 75 lb puppy, so whoever adopts her will need to work on her manners. She doesn’t always realize how intimidating she is to other dogs and could use some coaching on what appropriate play is.
Overall, whatever family adopts her will be very lucky because there isn’t another dog like Rey.
