did I ever explain why we really call her the wonder terrier?

One day the wife went to the pound in Virginia where we lived after work just to look at the dogs they had and fell in LOVE with a little terrier ball of energy named Katie.Poor little Katie was 8 weeks at the time and weighed like 4 pounds...she was WAY undernourished.She looked like hell and from the pic the wife sent me I questioned if she would live.

The wife called me and we adopted the poor little monster

we were told after the fact that she was on that nights list of dogs to be put down.She was...at best...less than an hour from being put down when the wife found her.....the people at the pound said it was a wonder she found someone to take her so close to closing the night she was going to be put down.....thus she became the wonder terrier.

The Wonder Terrier has become the bedrock of my home.She knows me and knows when and how to let me know that no matter how bad the day at work...she is there to make it better and...more interesting .

All hail the wonder terrier

1. Awwwww! What an adorable dog!

And a lucky one! She is very fortunate to have you, as well...

My dog, Sara, was rescued from a kill shelter in Ohio, made it to a rescue group here in NY via an "underground railroad" of dogs. Apparently, she was such a nice dog that the staff at this vile place begged for her to be included in the rescue run. And I was lucky enough that she found me...

4. Too cute!

We've got 4 shelter animals, 2-large mixed breed black dogs and 2-DSH cats.
They bring us joy every day!

Here's a great place to start if you're considering adopting some fur babies-
