Come meet Jamie!

Come meet Jamie!


I was dogless for about 6 months.  I finally decided to get a new dog and have been looking for the past couple of months at my local shelter.  I didn't have much luck.  Most local dogs are large or are Chihuahua mixes.  I was looking for a Terrier mix.

I went to the Bay Area in CA to visit a friend for Christmas.  So, I looked online at the local animal shelter in Martinez, CA to see what small dogs they had.  So, on Dec 24, at 3:30PM I called the Martinez animal shelter to see if he was still available.  He was! So, I said I would be there first thing the day after Christmas.  I was there at 10:00am when they opened, but Jamie wasn't there.  That same morning, they moved him to the Nevada Humane Society in Reno, NV.  That was on Thursday.  On Friday I drove to Reno to get my new dog.  It was a big hassle, but it was worth it.  Jamie is a good dog.  He is a Manchester Terrier.  He looks like a Mini Pin, but is a bit taller and thinner. 

He was neutered in Martinez so I had to get him a plastic dog collar so he wouldn't chew his stitches.  He was a trooper about wearing it.  It's off now and he is not licking.  He also had a dog bite on the top of his head.  It is healing now and he is going to be fine.  He likes to go in the car, so I know one day he will be fine in a RV if and when I ever get one! LOL

  2. Now that's dedication. Good for you for going after your new friend. My daughter had a min-pin growing up and he was a real character. I'm sure you will have many happy days with your new friend - he's adorable.
