Friday’s Photo

I am so excited to share this photo of the newest member of our family.

Sex: Male, Breed:Pointer/Spaniel mix? Age: 9 months-1 year.

This little guy has had quite a first year. Given away by his first family, then heartlessly abandoned by the side of the interstate in Tennessee by his second family. Rescued by a good Samaritan and shipped to The Pixel Fund in Maine, he was adopted by a third family only to be returned a few weeks later (their existing dog kept biting him). He was then fostered by a fourth family for a few weeks until my husband and I saw his photo on Petfinder last Saturday. Sunday we filled out the adoption application, Monday we found out we were approved, and on Tuesday we drove to Maine to give this guy his fifth but permanent home. I still can’t believe I said yes to getting another dog after loosing Tucker but here we go again!!!

He is sweet, loving, full of energy and most surprisingly; house broken and knows “sit”. The one thing this guy doesn’t know is his new name: ┬áT. NEVERS (Nevey for short). T. Nevers is a reference to where we used to vacation on Nantucket (Tom Nevers) as well as a reference to me saying over and over “I will NEVER get another dog”.

Which just goes to prove…Never say Never!

    I am so thrilled for Jake to have found his forever family with you. I rescued him here in Georgia and was thrilled for him to have the chance in Maine to find his home. This makes my day. He is a great boy and loves everyone! You totally made my weekend! I hope you are blessed by him forever!
