After several months of combing petfinder on the daily, emailing with various rescue orgs, and visiting nearly every animal shelter in the Bay Area, Ben and I have brought home this very very good girl from @ilovefamilydog
As you'll see in the last photo in this set, Paloma had a pretty rough start in life. She was found on the streets of Tijuana with a serious case of mange and a history of abuse (no word on the pups she had 😞). Despite all that, she is the sweetest, gentlest, most eager to please girl you could imagine. She's housetrained, has learned to Sit and Shake, walks well on leash, and loves other dogs. Pretty much all she wants to do is hang out and snuggle and that is pretty fucking awesome.
With as rough as the last year has been, it really is a pleasure to have a pooch back in our home again. She is such a good girl. And so tiny. The smallest dog we've ever owned at only 35lbs. And, yes, she looks like a puppy but she is probably about 3 years old.
Anywho, this is your heads-up that it's gonna be a lot of Paloma pics from here on out.
My rescue Belgian Malinois, Lily, insists on sitting in my lap. Especially, when I workout…something about being on the floor at her level. So, in between leg lifts, push ups and burpees I throw her ball, she brings it back and we repeat for 30 min. I’d say we both get our workout in. She’s one of my best workout buddies. Anybody else have a furry workout buddy pic to post? #lauraannlivehealthylivefree#belgianmalinois#mexicanrescuedog#fitness
Weigh in! We’re considering a second dog, an 11 month-ish old Mexican rescue temporarily named “Butch”.
Does it make sense to get a second dog so that Boss isn’t solo? For those who have two, is it a lot more work?
What about the Mexican rescue part of it...I’d be grateful for any pro/con feedback!
