Paco Wee Rescue Meet n Greet at Tomlinson's W. Braker Lane 60219

Update 6/5/19:
The home visit w/ Henry was fun. He is a sweetheart, but there wasn't a connection that we could be a family. He's been relocated a time before, and we didn't want to do that to him again if it didn't feel right. We know he will get a home soon. He's really close w/ his foster Coraly, so he's being well taken care of & Loved. He may not be the furbaby for us, but he will be someone's really soon. You can meet Henry and other Wee Rescue furbabies at the Petco at the Arboretum Saturday, June 8 10am - 12pm!

honey Ted & I have been visiting shelters and keeping our eyes open online,  especially with rescue / foster care furbabies the past couple of months. We lost our Huey over a year ago. He lived 16 wonderful years. We were blessed each day we had with him. Our hearts still hurt for Huey, but the time has also given our hearts an opening to give some more Love to another furbaby in need. They won't replace our Huey, but be a Happy addition to our family. We aren't taking it lightly. We don't have a time frame. We want to make sure a furbaby has a connection w/ us, and we have the same with them. It has to feel right. I figure most furbaby parents understand the feeling when you know you have 'YOUR FURBABY' & they have 'THEIR HUMANS'.

There are so many furbabies in need, it breaks our hearts w/ the stories of how many of these furbabies made it in shelters and rescue foster cares. Abused, neglected, not wanted anymore ...  We hope all furbabies will find their human family, and have that Loving & Safe connection. Furbabies really do help furbaby parents in life. Taking it all the Good w/ the Bad, the Happy w/ the Sad... sharing experiences in our journey in life w/ our furbabies is priceless.  Even though it will end w/ Heartbreak, the Love you had , and the memories of it that stay with you,really are something to treasure. 

We also thought about furbaby sizes. SInce we downsized a couple of years ago to a 1 bedroom, we feel staying w/ a smaller furbaby works better w/ our personal space. Bigger furbabies can of course live in a smaller area. There are many who do it, and it works great for them. For us, we think for now,it would work better staying w/ a smaller furbaby to Love and have them become part of our family. This is where Wee Rescue comes in helping small furbabies heal from the abuse & neglect the world has brought to them. 

Wee Rescue Dogs is an all-volunteer organization committed to rescuing small dogs like Havanese, Lhasa Apsos, Pekingese, Shih Tzus, and other small breeds/mixes regardless of age or medical condition from the Austin Animal Center and other shelters and facilities. All rescued dogs live with volunteer foster parents until they are adopted. The Wee Rescue Crew is lead by Julie & Linda, two huge hearted, talented and supportive ladies, who truly care about the well-being of  furbabies, with special attention put on the Saving,Loving and Helping w/ the Healing of Small Furbabies. They do this w/ the help of many volunteers in the Central Texas area who foster and help w/ the healing process of their furbabies. Getting them ready for adoption w/ a furever family and home that continues w/ the daily Love & Support that is needed for all. 

honey Ted and I attended a meet 'n greet Wee Rescue had yesterday at Tomlinson's W. Braker Lane location. We had filled out an application earlier online, and were ready to chat w/ Linda. This is the interview process. Linda & Julie like to find out about the folks who want to Adopt a Wee Rescue Furbaby. This helps them know what furbaby may be a good fit in their home. Each furbaby has different needs and issues that need to be dealt with. Some can be temporary ,and others can be for the entire duration of their lives. Medical issues and injuries can be a big part of their lives, and they need to make sure the proper match is made. The goal is to not have a furbaby come back to them, but be able to live a Happy life w/ their furever family.  

After the interview, if there seems to be an interest in a furbaby, and they seem to be compatible on paper together...The next step is an in home visit w/ the furbaby and their foster parent. From there, see how interaction goes in your space. The foster furbaby parent will be able to give share information about the furbaby during the time they have lived w/ them. Explain to you things to watch out for, and help for a smoother transition from their home to your home.  If it seems to feel good for all, an adoption can take place w/ the goal for a furever family to thrive together.  Linda stressed that they are there for that transition, which can take some time. It's always different for each family. They don't just drop the furbaby off, and that's it. You have piece of mind they are there to help in ways they can when it comes to a smooth adoption transition. You will find this all out during the interview process...  Click here for more about WRCs

Here are a few of the Wee Rescue furbabies at the meet ' n greet at Tomlinson's yesterday who need furever homes. The photo above is Paco, who is staying w/ furbaby foster mom Joy. Paco is a Pekingese around 3 / 4 years-old. This little guy has seen way to much neglect, harm and pain during his few years of life so far. He was surrendered because his family couldn't pay to fix his massive injury. He was hit by a car and had a broken hip. Once he had surgery for his hip, it was found he had a hernia too. Also discovered was Paco had heartworms. He just finished treatments a few months ago, and has tested negative for heartworms. It's a fantastic triumph for this little guy who was broken and horribly hurt, and is in a much safer place. Paco is ready for a furever home to continue w/ that safety and love. 

Emmy is a 5 year-old Shih Tzu mix, surrendered by her owner who couldn't take care of her anymore. She's friendly and full of Love for everyone. She enjoys playing w/ other dogs. Great with kiddos. House trained and can use a doggie door. Loving and affectionate. Her foster furbaby mom said she did have a bit of separation anxiety when she was left alone, but she's been working w/ her and getting better and better. She will need a patient furbaby parent / family when it comes to being alone, but the pay off will be great! Emmy is an all around Sweetheart in need of a furever home!

Henry is around 1 to 2 years old. He was surrendered by his first family. Henry was adopted a few months ago, but his adoptive furbaby mom didn't realize how much time a doggie needed based on the time she could actually give a doggie. Henry has a real want / love to play ball to the point where it can be obsessive. His foster mom Coraley explained it during his home visit, and how to work with him. She was there for support and pointers on what to do. His adoptive mom tried everything she could w/ her schedule and ability, and it didn't work out. Her expectations and what Henry could do at the time just didn't match. So Henry went back to his foster mom Coraley. He's been w/ her for a few more months, and has had a lot of interest in getting adopted again by a new family, hoping it will be his furever family.

The home visit w/ Henry was fun. He is a sweetheart, but there wasn't a connection that we could be a family.

honey Ted & I decided we'd try an in home visit w/ Henry, see if he could fit w/ us, and be part of our family. First impression of Henry and talking w/ his foster mom Coraly, he is so Sweet, he's potty trained, and Loves people and other doggies and cats. He enjoys cuddling on his terms. He has the stubborn Shih Tzu-isms, which Huey had those too. So we aren't a stranger to that behavior, which sounds like the ball issue. Huey had it w/ other things. We think it could be a fit if Henry is feeling it during the home visit. That's really important to us. We did notice he has a very special bond w/ his foster mom Coraley, which we think is Awesome too. Maybe he already had his furever home, and they just don't know it yet. Or maybe he's meant to move on ... it could be w/ us.  Well shall see how the in home visit goes tonight!  If not us, then it's okay. Henry is in great hands. We know there is a 'HENRY FAMILY'  out there. He will find it if it isn't w/ us. We also know , which is sad, there are many other furbabies who are in need. There are others coming for help with Wee Rescue, who will need healing and a furever home. honey Ted and I will continue w/ the journey of life and see where it takes us when it comes to family additions. We'll keep you posted.. Henry is throwing out his cute ... check him out..  Wee Rescue is in need of furbaby foster parents / care for many furbabies in need. Also those in need of furever homes.

Wee Rescue will continue to Save Lives and Spread the Love in Central Texas Thanks to all their volunteers and those who donate to help Wee Rescue -Small Dogs Big Hearts!
