Libby is a female Golden Lab Retriever. The vet estimates her age at 5-8 years old, and she's about 70 pounds in size.This very interesting girl has got personality plus. Her new family will enjoy her relaxed and gentle spirit. Tennis balls are her passion; she watches over them like a mother hen protecting her chicks. It's her job, and she is enthusiastic about it. Libby can manage to carry two tennis balls in her mouth at once and is going for the record for how many can actually fit. She's a comic and a fun girl to have around.

Last week was another great week of adoptions at the Coronado Animal Care Facility. Both Nelson and Toby, canines at PAWS were adopted as well as four kittens, Abercrombie, Fitch, Avery, and Sherman. Many thanks to the volunteers that walked the dogs and the cat petters, and the Coronado ACF for sheltering and caring for all the animals! Here is Nelson's story, what a lucky guy!
Our beautiful brown lab, Nelson, was adopted yesterday. A gentlemen who works in Coronado saw Nelson at the ACF. He just couldn't get Nelson out of his mind. He came back a number of times - once bringing his bride-to-be. They both liked Nelson. With a May 5th wedding, a trip and a move, it was not the right time to adopt a dog. After all the festivities, the gentlemen came back to the ACF and Nelson was there waiting for him. Their resident dog, Master, came to meet Nelson. We all held our breath knowing Nelson didn't always care for other large dogs. Margaret facilitated the meeting. After a couple of barks, the two dogs went for a walk together. Twenty minutes later they were fine!!! Nelson's new home is in Vista. Leaving the ACF was harder for us than Nelson. Master jumped in the back seat of the car and Nelson jumped in front with his new Dad. As they pulled away, Nelson looked over at us and it looked like he was smiling. I think he knew that he had found his family.
I spoke with the Dad this afternoon. Nelson and Master are "best friends" playing together and chasing gophers in their 2 1/2 acre yard. He has an new igloo bed that he just loves. Christina sent him home with his favorite blanket. As with so many of our animals, Nelson got the perfect home.
Thanks David and JoAnn for fostering Nelson. They actually observed that he might be ok with other dogs. Thanks Margaret for coming in on an unscheduled day to make sure the meeting was handled properly. Christina, I'm sure Nelson thanks you for his blanket! A great big thanks to the dog walkers, media team and photographers for making this all work.
