Meet Charley Louise

Pin It Now!

It all started late on a Wednesday night. I was at the new house painting away, just waiting for my sister to show up and keep me company. She called, letting me know she was sorry it was taking her so long. Then she told me why. "I found a dog running down the middle of the road." My immediate reaction? Uh oh. 

When she showed up at my house she had a tiny, collar-less dachshund wrapped up in her zip up hoodie. The little pooch was clearly very friendly, not to mention adorable. It was 11:00 pm and we had no idea what to do with this lost little pup. After phone calls to the local animal shelter and the police department we had no luck finding her owner. It was decided she would go home with my sister for the night.

The next day we were determined to find her home. We called the animal shelter again, no luck. We took her to a local vet to see if she had a micro chip that would help us locate her home. No luck. My sister posted an announcement on facebook. No luck.

 Little Miss Charley is now the mysterious stray that was once running down a busy street late at night and found herself a new home. From the very beginning she has been the most loving and cuddly pup you could ask for. She has the sweetest demeanor and simply wants to be as close to a human being as possible. I can't help but think my sister found her right when she needed to.

Fast forward 2 weeks.
Charley is loving life; adapting very well to her new home, new people, and new surroundings. My sister took her into the vet to get her caught up on vaccines. Turns out she's a healthy girl and just happy to be in her new home.

We will probably never know Charley's story or why my sister found her that night. What I do know is that she has seemingly become a part of the family very quickly. I hope she will stick around for a very long time. 

Welcome to the family little lady!
