Saved by one day

Onyx was going to be pd the next day if no one was to adopt him. We were looking at other GS and came across Onyx twice in a week but wasn't too sure if he was the one for us. But my gut feeling he was the one no matter how many GS we looked at he called to me and I to him. We took him that day. Only hours before dooms day. He's been with us now for three weeks almost 4. I'm so glad I went back the next day and was able to walk and play with Onyx.

Yes that is our Onyx. Took him to vet and got a 100% ok by them. But still underweight.

Handsome boy!

Welcome to the forum, and thank you sooo much for adopting. You saved a life that day!! Stick around, we're a nice, (mostly) sane bunch!

Happily owned by:
Lads (Alladin's Folly) Red Husky (rescue)
Chester the cat (humane society)
Mags (Teeny Tortie Siamese runt, too "old" to be sold at 12 weeks)
Mocha (Chocolate Siamese) At the Rainbow Bridge, I'll always miss you.

I have no idea what goes through a person's mind when they decide to 'throw away' a pet.

Sadly, I can imagine what goes through that pet's mind when their beloved owners never come back for them.

It takes a very special person to rescue. He is a real beauty.
