is a rescue of sorts but more like a re-home. A member of my CIN
group sent me an email telling me about a female clumber she saw
advertised for sale on Craigslist. I decided to check it out and
found out that the female listed for sale was a grand daughter
to two of my previous rescues, Spicy and Andy. Of course this
caught my attention so I sent the seller an email.
followed next was a wonderful chain of events. Bella as the
clumber is known was 18 months old and looked to be well
socialized and happy. Circumstances came up that prevented the
family from giving her the home and attention she deserved so
they decided to find her a family that could give her these
a series of email exchanges, Bella’s owner thought I would be
able to give Bella a good home and agreed to let me buy her.
Meanwhile, another CIN member emailed me about finding a clumber
for her friend who was supposed to get an older clumber from a
breeder but an unfortunate accident prevented this from
much thinking and soul searching, I realized Bella would be a
perfect match for her friend and emailed her with info and
pictures. She had never owned a dog much less a clumber so I
hesitated placing a rescue with her because I didn’t want her
first experience as a new dog owner to be a bad one. I wanted it
to be a win, win for everyone. After getting to know Bella
through emails and pictures, I felt confident that she would be
a great companion for a first time dog owner.
was picked up by her new mama on Friday, February 27, 2009 and
both seem very happy with each other. I am looking forward to
watching Bella grow up and hearing all about her new life and I
am very pleased with this happy ending as another of Spicy and
Andy’s kids have found a safe and loving home.
personality and temperament are just absolutely amazing and her
new mom thinks she is just wonderful. I am thankful that the CIN
member let me know about this sweet girl and that we were able
to give her a chance at being loved and cherished.
