We are the Horne family. Frank, myself, Ethan and Elie, Brinkley and Tootsie (roll)
We have traditionally had 2, sometimes 3 dogs. In 2008, we had 2 of our (large) labs pass away at 13 and 14 yrs of age, leaving us with a (we think) 7-yr old rescue mix named Chaplin. He was a mix between a lab and we believe a Corgi so had a black lab body on 3-inch legs (pretty cute, aay?). Read my story →
And now for another of our great senior dogs!
My name is Emmy Lou and I am looking for my forever home. I came to CBHR after I was found 50 feet down a ravine. Some really great firemen had to climb down to rescue me. That sure was a lot of excitement for this old gal. They were awesome and they gave me water and took me to the vet. Thankfully I was OK; quite a miracle considering my adventure. Then CBHR stepped in and put me in one of their wonderful foster homes so I could pull myself together after all of that excitement.
When I first got here I was not housebroken. It took me a little while, but I’ve got it now. Who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks! My foster mom says I am very low maintenance and I love everyone. I especially love those people that give me belly rubs. I love to sleep on the couch and go for a ride in the car. I am good with other dogs and children. I am very loyal and soooo sweet. I do have some hip problems, so a house with no stairs would probably be a good choice for me. I get a little anxious when people leave, but who wouldn’t after all I have been through? Maybe you are retired and looking for a dog to hang out with to keep you company. Maybe you are a stay at home mom with little kids who would like a mature dog that won’t get into things like a puppy. I may be 10, but I act a lot younger now that I’ve have had some time to recover. I even like to play with my doggie foster brother. My foster mom says I am a great dog! I am just sure that somebody out there will want to give me a forever home. Check out my profile.
