Yes, that adorable little one-eyed tyke was happily adopted on Saturday by Carolyn S. from Pennsylvania and her dog Maddy. Carolyn, a long-time supporter, had seen him in our e-newsletter in late March and asked if she could adopt him. We agreed to hold onto him (we had lots of interest in him when that newsletter went out!) until she could schedule a trip up to New Hampshire and meet him. As you may remember, Cap had come to us back in February from an Arkansas shelter. An animal control officer had seen him listed on someone's Facebook page in a "free to good home" post and was concerned he might end up as a bait-dog for dog-fighting rings in the area. The ACO contacted the owner, picked up the dog, and the shelter asked if we could take him.
Since arriving here, he became everyone's best friend, and loved nothing more than roughhousing with Tanner and Bugsy. We told Carolyn that although Cap was a fraction the size of Tanner, he more than made up for it with energy, attitude and spunk. We'd watch as Cap would dart around Tanner at lightning speed, jumping on him and boxing at him from different angles, then whirling away before Tanner knew what hit him. And as you saw in the previous post, Cap was more than a match for the much chunkier Bugsy, too. (Tanner and Bugsy love to roughhouse together as well, and they each have plenty of other friends here, so they won't be lonely with Cap gone.)
After meeting Maddy, we think these two will get along just fine -- though Maddy may want to borrow some boxing gloves and a helmet!
Carolyn, thank you for giving Cap a wonderful new home!
