Rescue Adventurer Leaves to Get a Job by Jo Wolf
Back in September, our Border Terrier rescue got a waif from a shelter in Arkansas. Before we could move him to a long-term foster in Mississippi, we discovered two startling things about this 16 lb dynamo. A four foot fence is no challenge. He can remove the tray from the bottom of a wire crate...
