I did find a home for him - well, sort of. A lady contacted me from a rescue: Animal Welfare of Laurens County, Inc (and yes, it was legit - I researched it) where they have 3 acres of land for the dogs to play during the day and sleep in their kennels at night - which I'm sure Ralphie loved because he took to the kennel we put him in very nicely. They update all shots and take applications every weekend for adoptions. The adoption process is very strict - interview, visit home, contract involved. They do their best to make sure the dog will go to the best home possible.
I found his listing - she kept his name...Ralphie. :) Click here to see him. I think he's gained some weight...looks good.
She emailed me afterwards and thanked me for finding him a good place and not just dumping him at the pound where he'd hardly have a chance to make a family happy. I emailed back and asked how he was. She said he was doing fine and was her new shadow and he was, indeed, a very sweet lil guy. I haven't heard anything else but wish Ralphie the best. I cried when he left. Yes, I know...but he was so cute and sweet. And I'm pregnant.
Suka was actually kinda sad to see him go I think. They were playing very nicely before Ralphie went to the rescue. The next morning, she sniffed all over the front porch and garage for him.
I hope wherever Ralphie is, he's happy.
