Adopt Buster: The One-Eyed Chihuahua

 

 

The Humane Society of New York is one of our favorite organizations around. They save countless dogs and cats, nursing them back to health and finding them forever homes with loving families. In fact, Sassafrass Jones, myself was inspired by a Pekingese with one-eye who My Mama adopted from the Humane Society years ago and named him Sammy Davis Jr. She fell madly in love, as did the perky Pekingese and Sammy Davis lived a full and happy live in the Smith Bresciani family.

Years later, the Humane Society of New York is still doing fantastic things and stories of abandoned dogs and cats finding forever homes continue appear on their website. And still they hold events and fundraisers all around the city, to make sure they stay current and no puppy dog or cat gets left behind. Personally, I have a special place in my heart for the Humane Society of New York. My mom, myself and all our family in the Habersham Forest do whatever we can to help with awareness and donations.  In fact, we donated proceeds from many of our sales to this organization (along with Canine Companions for Independence).

Last night, as I often do, I was pawing around the internet and decided to check out the latest on the HSNY Homepage and see what dogs and cats were up for adoption.

And there he was…Buster, the one-eyed adult male Chihuahua. I barked and howled trying to get mama Sassafrass’ attention. “It’s another one-eyed dog, just like Sammy Davis Jr., and what if he doesnt get adopted,” I whined to mom.  “With tears in her eyes, she sat down next to me and we found out a little more about little Buster.

Buster

How much he reminds the Habersham Forest Family of the late Sammy Davis Jr. Sadly, Buster was brought the Humane Society of New York in bad condition. He was underweight, and one of his eyes was in terrible shape when he was found and brought to the HSNY.  He is neutered and in good health (who needs two eyes anyways?) and his birthday is December 16, 2013, so he is still young.

But, sadly, he is not the pick of the litter and needs an experienced adopter because he is not good with kids, not good with dogs and not good with cats. But we pet he has a whole lot of love to give to his human.

Buster was underweight and one of his eyes was in really bad shape when he was found by someone and brought to us. Now that he is all cleaned up and healthy again, he is ready to find a home. His birthday is December 16, 2013.

We really appreciate your wanting to give a shelter animal a home. The Humane Society of New York was founded in 1904. The Vladimir Horowitz/Wanda Toscanini Horowitz Adoption Center is a no-kill shelter. Our on-site clinic and staff of skilled Veterinarians looks after the health and well-being of every animal here. We offer FREE Vet care for the first 3 weeks after adoption. We also have a great adoption matchmaker who will gladly take your profile and match you or your pet with just the right cat or dog companion. Please feel free to submit your application!

If you’d like to sponsor this pet, please email sandra.hsny@verizon.net. You can give as much or as little as you like. Your donation is tax deductible. Thank you!

FOR APPLICATION, please visit http://humanesocietyny.org/adoptions/ and download then email it to sandra.hsny@verizon.net, fax it to (212) 752-2803 or bring it in to the adoption center.

I think Buster needs a pair of chartreuse cat-eye glasses to help with his eye sight. Maybe even a little crown would make him feel better.  What do you think?

New Book! Raising a Hero

It’s hard to contain my excitement here. Since I was a little pup and was still getting used to living in my forever home, I could only fall asleep when my mom or one of the mice read me my favorite book in the whole world!

The book is (drum roll…..)  If You Give a Mouse a Cookie by Laura Numeroff. y648Whatever your age may be, this is a classic book. And I will always keep it as one of my treasured possessions. (In fact, it is right next to the book about me written by my mom Sassafrass Jones & Her Search for a Forever Home). Coincidence or not, they are both just great books for kids and adults.

But here is what has got my tail wagging and my tongue hanging out……the new book of what will be a series is about raising a puppy to become a service dog.

And, guess what organization has inspired her series? If you know anything about the Habersham Forest, then you know the answer.

Give up?  Canine Companions For Independence.  The nearest and dearest to our hearts. In fact, 100% of the book sales from my mom’s latest book, Sassafrass Jones & Her Forever Friends ABCs, goes directly to this organization.

It’s like we were meant to be. At least our books and maybe our moms are meant to be. In a “doing good” for the world sort of way.  I just ordered my copy, with some help from my friends in the forest because it can be hard to type with little paws) and i can’t wait to read it this weekend with my mommy. RaisingAHero_Cover-Shadow
