Yes, lovable blind Zach has a wonderful new family to call his own! Robin E. and Laura M. from South Portland, Maine, came out on Sunday to meet Zach. It was, as they say, love at first sight. (Well, except in Zach’s case, it was more like love at first sniff!) Zach, you may remember, had come to us last year from Michigan, where he had been surrendered to a shelter after his owner had died. We had already agreed to take another blind dog at the shelter, Darla, and Zach showed up just before our transport arrived to get her. So the shelter asked if we could take him as well, and we said yes. Zach turned out to be a playful, joyful little character. He loved to roughhouse with us, and we could get into quite a conversation with him because he liked to talk back.
Robin and Laura had lost their Shih Tzu Henry a couple of months ago, and had started looking for another companion to add to the family. Robin saw Zach on our PetFinder page and emailed us about a week ago about him. The timing was perfect, because our groomer was here on Thursday and Zach was all spiffed up and ready to present himself!
Zach couldn’t get enough of Robin and Laura yesterday, and during the photo session he was trying to sneak in a couple of extra kisses:
This morning Robin emailed to say Zach was doing great, had settled in and already found his way around the house. She wrote, “Today when we all got up he started wagging his tail and it hasn’t stopped since! I’m afraid he is going to sprain it. :)”
Thank you, Robin and Laura, for giving this sweet tyke a loving new home!
