Kandye's puppy tale

It has been rainy and overcast in the city due to the edges of the hurricane. That causes night to fall early. It was becoming heavy twilight when Tommmmmmy dashed off to grab our dinner before True Blood tonight. As he approached a busy intersection (4 lanes on all sides ~ crossed by railroad tracks), he noticed cars swerving and slamming on their brakes. Accident? Crazy driver? No.... a small, dark figure cowered in the middle of traffic.

Inching first one way and then the other, but never reaching safety. A confused puppy faltered while cars honked, skidded and sped around him. My sweet Tommmmmy swooped to his rescue! He threw on the emergency brake & jumped out into the street. Other thoughtful drivers stopped to block the traffic in each direction so that he could reach the frightened puppy without being hit himself. There were many smiles of relief. One lady rolled down her window just to yell thanks!

No momma dog or other pups to be found.

Once they were finally safe in the warm, dry truck, Tommmmy called me. When I answered, the first thing he said was ~ "We have a new addition to our family!"

I want to introduce you all to Jasper :) We do not know what kinda dog he is, aside from adorable. Any ideas? Click on the photos above for a closer look.

he's adorable! i would make a good guess that he is a staffordshire bull terrier...probably not pure though...his coat looks like that of a brindle boxer...congratulations! both types of breed are great companions!

That is the sweetest story!! Your dog looks just like a breed of wild Mexican dog that one of my customers has. They're medium sized, with the same coat and are bright, but not acclimated to urban life. He runs a b&b in rural Mexico and they rescued theirs, when she got stuck under a fence. I tried to google a name up for you, but couldn't find it.
