I've been waiting to share Petey the Boxer's story for quite some time now. It's a lovely story with the traditional good-feelings associated with it, but I wanted to make sure I had the time to include every little detail Petey's mom, Ann, shared with me.
This 4 year old, shy, unsocial dog was brought along anyway, because he wasn't doing well in the shelter, South Bend Animal Care and Control, and the worker wanted to give him a chance.
This is their official web page, and this link will take you right to Petey's page. They have even named a dessert topping after Petey, with a portion of the proceeds going to the shelter.
Petey is becoming world famous, with fans on his Facebook page from England, Australia, and Italy! Speaking of which, check out Petey's page right here. Make sure you head over there and "like" the page and lots of the posts, so you continue to get Petey updates.
Petey's fame actually lead to a connection between Ann and Petey's original owner, who had given him to someone else he thought was responsible but obviously was not. Petey's original human was thrilled to see Petey thriving and happy.
Thank you Ann for sharing Petey's story but especially for seeing the true character of Petey when you met him that day in the toy store. Thank you for working with Petey to make the world a better place for rescue dogs and everyone else too.
