Foxy Lady’s Rescue Story
Posted by Abby Rosenberg on July 27, 2012
Filed under PetMeds Spotlight

This week, Kathy M. shares Foxy Lady’s rescue story with us:

Foxy Lady is an American Foxhound

My husband, Marty, had wanted an American Foxhound for a long time.  He loved everything about them from their look to their temperament.  Being recently diagnosed with diabetes, the doctor told Marty that he would need to get a lot of exercise and walking is ideal.  As I was searching on website for pet shelters, I came across the Robertson County Animal Shelter in Springfield which was near my job.  While scrolling down the available pets, an American Foxhound appeared. They had named her Aspen and she was around 1 year old.  The owner had surrendered her to the shelter, reason unknown, and due to overcrowding in the shelter she was scheduled to be put down possibly the next day.  I called my husband at work and told him about the dog and asked if he could run by and check her out.  He left work and went to the shelter that very day.

Foxy Lady was scheduled to be put down when she was rescued just in time

As soon as they let the dog out of the cage, she ran to him and laid her head on his shoulder as he bent down to pet her.  That was the end of the story.  He called me at work and said, “We just bought a Foxhound!”  That was the beginning of many months, so far, of loving a new companion and becoming “pet parents.”  It’s amazing how much unconditional love and companionship our “Foxy Lady” has brought to our home, not to mention the tremendous amount of exercise for Marty from walking her several times a day.  She has brought so much joy to our lives and is definitely a “keeper.”
