Droopy was found as a stray in Chula Vista, CA. He had a collar on with his name, but no owner-contact info. He ended up at the shelter.
This is Droopy leaving the shelter with me, his rescuer. I will help transport him to Basset Hound Rescue of So. California, aka BHRSC.
Droopy is overweight. I helped him into the backseat of my Civic but he made it clear that he is no backseat hound by promptly climbing into the front seat.
He also helped to clean the lid of my coffee cup...good thing I'm not afraid of germs b/c it was still full and I still needed my coffee. :)
Droopy made himself comfortable...on my center console.
And he cooled his jowls on the A/C
Then settled in on my lap for the ride to Aliso Viejo.
After awhile Droopy smelled treats in my bag so he climbed into the back to investigate.
He couldn't believe it when I told him only 1 cookie for now since they needed to last our whole drive.
Droopy: half front seat, half back...
Nevermind, back up front to enjoy the scenery.
In Aliso Viejo I passed Droopy off to Paul, another one of Droopy's rescuers. Paul got Droopy safely to Newport Beach, his rescue destination where he was seen by a vet and estimated to be 7 years old. He has started a diet and will soon be neutered. Please contact BHRSC if you are interested in fostering or adopting Droopy.
