The last Canine Canyon Ranch dog was adopted!

Hi all, my handsome Colt, my very last foster here went to his new home this morning. I met Scarlett (one of four wonderful people who saw Colt on an ABQ Craigslist ad) in Clines Corners, a halfway point for us both, and he bounded straight out of my Jeep and into her car, and the hearts of Scarlett and her two granddaughters off from school today.

The last Canine Canyon Ranch foster dog still needs a home!

Hi Leslie. That gorgeous GSD is not mine, but one I've commented on. Isn't he the most beautiful thing??? I'm not a proponent of pure-bred dogs, but I think I would have made an exception for him. :-)
