Noah Horton, assistant director
Today, our program assistant, Brody Anderson, brought the Petfinder Foundation to a screeching halt for about five minutes. I was on the phone talking with one of our partners when I heard the screaming begin. What started as unintelligible squealing eventually turned into one understandable word: “Puuuuupy!!!” As soon as I was off the phone I rushed in to see what all the fuss was about, and this is what I saw:
Bringing a puppy into the Petfinder Foundation offices is a recipe for distraction. Work ground to a halt, and this little girl (who doesn’t have a name yet—any ideas?) was showered with affection. I think Scarlett, our executive director’s lab mix and another office dog, felt a little left out.
Despite our inclinations to take the day off and play with the puppy, we knew we needed to go back to work. I decided I needed the best of both worlds, and so as I write this post, the puppy is sleeping in my lap.
As it turns out, this little girl is part of a litter of four that Brody found and nursed back to health. They look like Chow/Husky mixes, they’re approximately three months old, and all of them are adorable. Brody’s mother adopted one of them, but the other three still need homes. Stay tuned!
