For the second day in a row our rescue dog is pure-bred. Today's Charlie is a King Charles Cavalier Spaniel.

Charlie lives with Abby, who we featured a few weeks ago. When Tracy found Abby, she was in the Gloucester County Animal Shelter.  Tracy wanted just the right dog to keep up with her son. Charlie, on the other hand, was for Tracy's daughter, who had her heart set on a King Charles Cavalier.

Tracy, yet again demonstrating the best way to go about being a pet owner, had her daughter sign in the GCAS wish list book.  Brava to Tracy and especially her daughter for being patient and waiting for the breed they wanted to become available via rescue.

About a year after they signed the book, an owner surrendered Charlie, who was two years old at the time. Tracy, her daughter, and Abby headed to the Gloucester County Animal Shelter, crossing their fingers that Charlie and Abby would hit it off.

Well obviously they did, and now they both live happily with Tracy's family. Abby loves people she knows and trusts, and Charlie, well, he just loves everybody!

Tracy, thank you so much for sharing your rescue pets. Readers, please remember (and tell your friends) there are many full-bred dogs waiting to be rescued, so if someone has their heart set on a specific breed, that's no excuse to run to a breeder. Sorry, I try not to get too preachy on here but I don't think people always realize all their rescue options!

Anyway, what about your story? Have you shared it yet?  If not, please contact me at pabibliophile@gmail.com
