FOSTER NEEDED: Little Red will be arriving to our organization tomorrow, Thursday, April 5th. We are looking for someone to foster this sweet girl. She is a long-hair dachshund mix that weighs around 16lbs and is approximately 7 years old. This little dog was found as a stray running down the middle of the road. Some wonderful people stopped and scooped her up before she was injured by a vehicle. They say that she is just the sweetest little girl. She gets along with other cats and dogs (children unknown). No further information known about her at this time. If you are interested in fostering Little Red, please fill out a foster application at www.animalconnections.org.

Animal Connections shared a memory.

ADOPTION UPDATE!

This wonderful couple adopted Charlie. He now has a farm to run around on, and has already been out riding around with his new mom on their Gator putting out hay for the horses! He is one very lucky boy! Congrats to Carol, John and Charlie!

Here's a real cutie!!!

Little Sunny embodies the term "mover and shaker". He loves to be in motion and loves to shake those toys! And his sunny personality makes everyone smile. Just the facts: Probably Jack Russell/Parson Terrier blend, about 4-5 months old, and 16 pounds. He loves other dogs and would be a perfect companion for another active dog. Being an enthusiastic little guy he will want an active, engaged family. He still has some manners to learn but is smart and very treat motivated so if someone will take the time to work with him he will be a gem. If you think you need some sunshine in your life, this is your guy. For more info please contact Marilyn at: mpnash1@gmail.com

Bambi is a very sweet, playful 2 year old blend of (our best guess)
ShihTzu/Maltese mix . She can be a little shy at first, but once she gets to know you, she is your best friend forever! She loves to cuddle and give affection. Bambi has great kid experience and loves other dogs. She is crate trained and does well in it at night and when her foster mother is at work. House training is coming along well. She will use a doggy door but as long as you go out with her, she will not have any accidents. She would be a wonderful addition to any home that wants an adorable, affectionate, devoted little girl.

Animal Connections shared Louisa County Animal Shelter's post.

Missing dog.

This is Toby, he travels with his dad, a long distance trucker who crashed at I-295 & I-64 in Richmond VA almost two weeks ago on Jan. 30. Toby apparently was not hurt, but frightened - the pup fled the crash scene, and really hasn't been seen since. Henrico Animal Control is aware.

Please be on the lookout for Toby. The trucker was treated at MCV, in Richmond, Va but then was transported to a hospital in Atlanta, to be close to his family ... he's heart-broken about his dog and it's hindering his recovery. His family reached out to Jamie Ericksen from Atlanta, Jamie has asked that anyone who has seen or found him contact her.

There is a rescue team in place and clothes with scent and traps are set. Please post here in case someone picked him up while traveling or "just got a new dog" or " needs to surrender " their baby. She was told that the dog was chipped when she adopted but apparently the dog is not chipped.

Please call Jamie at 804.332.2253, or Laurie at 703-498-4229 or 703-499-0459. #PLEASESHARE
