When we visited, Gibby’s adoption was pending. He is an American Staffordshire Terrier mix, about an year old. He had a slight limp in his right hand, which was probably broken, but had healed quite well. He had come in as a stray, but has now found a wonderful home. He was full of energy initially, sat down when asked and took treats from my hand.

Amy and Gibby hit it off right away, reminding me of Amy playing with Sephora! And no wonder that these two got tired pretty soon, and also added to it, that Amy had visited with about 15 dogs already and was exhausted from the excitement and playing. He was the last dog for the day and we all had such a great time at the ECCHA.

Derby is a three year old, male, lab mix, who was a stray before coming to the ECCHA. He is one of the most docile dogs we met there, who was every content to get some attention, treats and ear scratches. He gave little attention to Amy – just checked her out and ignored her! He seemed to be more of a pack-driven dog, with humans. He also knew the door, but was not willful about going out – just gave us this ‘please’ look and soon gave it up.

Buck is a one year old Lab-shepherd mix, who found his way to ECCHA, as a stray. He has been in the humane association for about 15 days. He is a big friendly doggie, who knows to open doors with a pull down handle. From the second he entered the room, he had eyes only for Amy and just wanted to play. We let them both off – leash and both of them had a great time.

Izzie, one of the smartest dogs we met, is a Labrador -chow -unknown mix. She is a three year old female, who came to the humane association as a stray. She has been at ECCHA for four weeks now. She very much reminded us of the time when we first met Amy. Polite – alert -friendly and obedient. She knew the way out and willed for the door to open. Here she is, eying Amy for a play session.

The moment I took a treat out, she sat for it, took it gently from me and gave me a big hi-5 after eating. She is an energetic ball of happiness.

Travis is a Labrador retriever, and a big guy. He came as a stray to the ECCHA and has been there for three weeks. Initially Amy was a little intimidated by his size, but soon found him friendly, as he wanted to lick her and us too! Though he is in need of some training, most of it due to ‘Travis’ not being the name his parents called him, and he hasn’t learned to respond to it yet, he is so full of personality. He is a big ball of fun 🙂

Travis also knew where the back door to the outside was and asked to step outside for a break! He didn’t want to spend any time in the rain and turned his attention back to us.

This is Libby – the most playful dog we met at ECCHA and we spent a lot of time with her. She is a 2 year old, spayed female, who thinks she is still a puppy. She is a Labrador retriever mix and was surrender by her parents due to her high energy. She is house broken, knows to sit and is very friendly with both dogs and cats. She is also park friendly, but unfortunately has a bad habit of chasing vehicles. Hence, she is looking for a home with a fenced yard, that would keep her safe from the vehicle monsters.

She got really playful with me, when I gave her some treats and kept leaning in for a good scratch behind the ears.

Then of course, you cant just stop with ear scratches. How about a good belly rub now?

Carter is a one and half year old Collie mix, who was a stray and been at ECCHA for about 2 weeks. He seems to have been trained a little. We moved indoors due to rain and it happened to be the room through which the dogs were taken outside for walks. Carter and some of the other doggies we met, knew the room too well and of course, were interested in stepping out for some fun! It was fun watching Carter move from the door to us for some petting and treats and to Amy for a little play and back again to the door. He is so smart and friendly that he is going to make his parents proud!
