After advertising "Ruffles" on adoption sites, I received one call on him.
Fortunately, it was a good call.
The mature married couple recently lost a their 14-year-old Chow to Diabetes and kidney disease. They were seeking another.
Today, I received an appreciative email from my contact at the Yonkers shelter saying the people came to meet Ruffles yesterday and will be adopting him. His new name will be "Rudy" -- more appropriate for a boy.
I am relieved about this. Since Ruffles was used to a house and yard and not familiar with walking on a leash, I figured he would have a hard time adjusting to a city apartment, as well as the noise, stress and crowds of Manhattan.
Moreover, I did not have an open foster home to send him to.
We didn't get many calls on Ruffles, but at least the one we got was gold. -- PCA
