Pumpkin – Here’s a wonderful success story we’d like to share. Pumpkin (now known as “Fritz”) came from a hoarding situation where he was living with 78 other dogs in a home. He had received little socialization with people and was terrified of just about every new situation he encountered. Hanni and her boyfriend, Sam, took Fritz under their care as a foster dog and coached him to explore new surroundings and meet new people. Fritz slowly emerged from his shell, and eventually they felt he was ready for adoption. Fritz had other ideas, however, and ran away from his new adoptive home before he even got inside! Hanni and Sam helped search for him and found him hiding in some bushes near a river close to the new home. He came running when they called, recognizing their voices. He hadn’t responded to the calls of his potential adopters, although they had searched in the same area.
After deciding Fritz needed more time to recover from this incident, Hanni and Sam decided to adopt him and give him a forever home with them. We think Fritz hit the jackpot, as he is obviously very happy to go on new adventures as long as Hanni and Sam are by his side. We couldn’t be happier, and hope you enjoy these wonderful photos Hanni shared with us of a recent backpacking trip they took with Fritz!
