I learned yesterday and this morning that that will never happen.
Someone in the neighborhood is looking to give away her 4-month old male basset hound puppy, Broby, to a good home. She is a single, unemployed Mom with a baby that is beginning to crawl and she's having difficulty with the expense of taking care of a puppy, and with keeping Broby from playing with the baby the way he would with another puppy. He's a sweet dog and Champ has never had a problem with him when we've met him and his owner while on one of our walks so I volunteered to take him home with me on a trial basis. I knew that there might be some jealousy problems to begin with, and there were, and I was relieved when, late last night, Champ and Broby started to play together nicely. Unfortunately things changed for the worse this morning. I feel sure that Champ wasn't intentionally trying to hurt Broby but I was afraid that he might, accidentally. Poor Broby's head was soaked from Champ repeatedly wrapping his jaws around it. I phoned his owner this morning and walked him back home a few mintues later.
If you are interested in giving Broby a good home let me know and I'll hook you up with his owner. Right now she has a sign in her front yard that says "Free Puppy" and I'm not sure that's the best way to find him a good home. He's had his shots but he hasn't been fixed or microchipped. He sleeps in his cage (not included in the deal). He knows a few tricks like sit, stay, and roll over. Sometimes he gets confused and he rolls over when you tell him to sit. I think he knows that it will make you laugh.
A quick update: I can see Broby's house from my living room window and I notice that the sign is gone. I don't know if his owner changed her mind or if she's found him a home.
A last update: Broby has a new home.
