On Wednesday, we had a foster first.  After spending Saturday morning meeting a puppy Knick Knack Pittie Pack was hoping to pull, we headed down to the Frederick County Animal Control to pick up her directly from the shelter.  We’ve never walked a dog out of the shelter for their freedom ride before – even Gambit was picked up from the vet that neutered him.


Spring is a sweet little 5 1/2 month old, 30 lb bundle of love and energy.  She’s named after the neighborhood in which she was found as a stray, but I’m convinced it’s because there are springs in her legs when she first sees us in the morning and after work.


She’s got one little quirk that we intend to work through… if she’ll show it to us in a home environment, that is.


Spring is a very smart little girl, but since the last time we had a puppy was in March 2012 when Rusty had his first birthday, we are definitely getting used to the whole puppy thing again!

    What a cutie! Pulling them directly from the shelter has got to be one of the greatest feelings in the world 🙂

    She looks so much like Julius, it makes my heart melt. I’m also intrigued as to the “quirk” as if just being a puppy wasn’t enough to work through!
