ADOPTED – 01-07-12 – Delta’ was formerly known as “131Green” when she was brought into the Ouachita Parish Animal Shelter in West Monroe, LA as a stray on September 13th. She was held the required 7 days to see if an owner would claim her. Sadly, no one came forward and Delta was set to be euthanized on her 8th day at the shelter. Thanks to a great relationship between a Louisiana group (PAWS of NE LA) who helps animals at the local high kill pound and Rescue Dog Village Guardian, Inc. of CT, sweet Delta was saved! Because she was a stray we don’t know anything about her history. Delta was fully vetted and moved to foster care on Sept 22nd. We expect to learn more about Delta in the coming weeks.
What we do know is that she is in excellent health is currently on Advantage Multi for heartworm/flea prevention, she has been spayed and her energy level is low. At this time, Delta is pretty unsure of things associated with being a pet dog. Even though we don’t know her history, the dogs let us know what their life has been like. We don’t think she ever had a leash on until we pulled her from the pound; however she is a fast learner and responds well with a kind word and affection. Her foster family is giving her lots of love and showing her what her life will be like from now on. She is learning about being an inside dog and we expect her to be a spoiled pup in no time! She loves everyone she meets and is super with other dogs.

She is a bit strong on leash at this point but is learning; she is young so as she gets older and with some training from her foster mom, she will get better and better with time. We are finding out that she is not a hyper dog but will need regular exercise to keep her happy and sane.
She has lots of wonderful qualities; she is excellent with dogs and kids. We don’t know about cats but she has shown no signs on food issues. Because she has been an outside dog, her mom is working on her house training but she loves to be loved and is so willing to please, she will catch on soon. She is a bit nervous in the car, which makes us believe she was taken for a ride that upset her but she does very well in a crate. A dog that is good in the crate is a benefit for so many reasons and for Delta, it is important that her new family has one for her. She will need a safe place to go so she can figure out all the new things in her life.
Delta has no true fears; she is just unfamiliar with many things she has been exposed to since leaving the shelter but she is adapting well. She might hesitate or lay down when trying something new but quickly recovers to investigate. She is learning that these new people in her life want only the best for her and bring her good things like toys, treats and soft beds.
Her new family will need to know that she needs a gentle hand to help her learn about this new life she has. Delta needs a loving family who understands the needs of a young rescue dog and can help her grow to her full potential. Once she learns that, she will rocket to a secure dog and her love gates will open and flood her family for the rest of her life, she has a big heart and she is a very special dog.
