Laszlo: On trial!

Smile for the camera
Laszlo: With his new family!

We are sure going to miss this little dude, but we are THRILLED to report that he went on trial* with his new family last night!

(*Our rescue has a period called “on trial,” which is a 2-week stint before the adoption is finalized, just in case the family decides that the dog isn’t a good fit for them.)

I went last night to do the home visit with the family, and I am convinced he is going to have a wonderful life with them. He has a big, beautiful farmhouse in the countryside, plus an older canine sister (a gentle, sweet 11-year-old shepherd mix) and the most dog-friendly cat I’ve ever met. (I don’t think Laszlo had ever met a cat before, but this cat — who, I should note, was bigger than Laszlo — walked right up to him, delicately sniffed his nose, and then rolled over on his back to play! Amazing.)

He will also be spoiled rotten, which of course he won’t mind. He already had a treasure trove of new toys waiting for him when we showed up.

The adoption will be finalized in two weeks, but here’s to hoping that our little guy has found his forever home!

(Side note: Thanks for all of your great advice about Pyrrha’s new problem on walks. I will report back after some of our walks this weekend.)

    1. We have a lot of travel in the next few weekends, so our next foster won’t come until mid-April. We’re looking forward to it, but we’re also looking forward to a little break, too!

  1. We let both dogs and cats (at Safe Harbor, not Silverwalk) go home ‘on trial” if the adopter asks. Makes sense to make it a policy to ensure both enough time and adjustments for new family and the new pet. Go, Laszlo!
