My dear Anna, I won't be eating anything except pizza and chocolate, so there! At the time I wrote those words, nobody apart from Charlotte Fails, who sent out the original plea I believe, seemed to be aware of Jim. I had never even seen that plea and if A&H didn't get it, you know it's gotten buried or forgotten because trust me, A&H gets thousands of email every day. I just happened to be looking at the small dogs on East Valley website when I saw Jim's face and thought - hmm I normally love scruffy terriers but the photo of this dog is definitely not flattering and he looks a bit ugly. I am sure he isn't - Charlotte says he is actually very cute! I called the shelter and they told me he was rescue only. Then when I decided to get on the case, Paula and Linda were good enough to send out multiple emails on him making everyone doubly aware! So thank you ladies cos it's very much down to your emails that awareness was raised. And then mostly down to Anna being able to find a great foster home and Chela Landau pulling him for AHAW.
So the latest is that I will be picking Jim up from the vet tomorrow if his neutering is done in time. I will then be taking him to an approved foster home (tis Lisa, the lady who fostered Anna's Gracie). When he is ready, Molly's Mutts & Meows have kindly agreed that we can show him at their adoptions. So, when he's settled in (please please god make it easy on Lisa), photos will be forthcoming and I bet he'll look really cute.
PS - We have all agreed that his name has to be changed!
