Once they were finally able to travel, one misfortune after the next stood between them getting their babies back. Car troubles left them stranded in town after town. As they repaired a flat tire in one town, their car overheated and left them in Bullhead City, still very far away from their pups. All the while they stayed in contact with the shelter team to assure us that the dogs were loved and that they were working hard to pick them up.
When shelter pet foster, Jim Busche, heard the story behind the foursome waiting in the shelter, he vowed to get them back into the loving arms of their people. The shelter team then loaded up the pups, packed a bag of goodies and kissed the pups goodbye. Jim made the journey and reunited the pups with their ecstatic parents after being in the shelter for two months!
Although we are saddened by the circumstances that caused Dexter, Finn, Pippa, and Ruger to end up in the shelter, the goodness of everyone who helped get them back home far overshadows all of that. Foster volunteers and adopters have stepped to the plate during this pandemic, allowing the shelter to have the capacity to house the four dogs for an extended period of time. Their loving owners fought hard to get to their fur babies and never gave up on being reunited.
Finally, paws up to Jim Busche, for selflessly volunteering his heart, time, and gas so that this story could have the happy ending it deserves!
