Hi all, I posted about this little guy in a shelter in MO:
After being persistent and calling them 3232523 times, I was able to speak with someone who said that 1. I am totally eligible to adopt even though I'm so far out of state and 2. They'll e-mail me an adoption application and we'll go from there.
Nano is about a year old they think: (everyone there thinks he's very young because he hasn't been neutered yet and still shows signs of puppyhood)and has been there for quite sometime; he was turned in early June by a man who said he "found him as a stray" but the shelter personnel have reason to believe it was actually the man's dog. He didn't want to give any personal contact information and he looked as though he had been crying…so they think the man had to surrender him but didn't want to give the details.
He doesn't show any health concerns as of yet, his dew claws are removed, and they say he's well behaved. He's a handsome little guy. His adoption fee is $125, (which will be tough for me seeing as Shango just had all of his vet updates, no light bill at the vet's office :-() But I'm hoping Shango and I will be able to give him a nice home.
I've contact BRAT, too, in terms of having someone meet the little guy before hand and getting details for me and to organize a possible transport system as Union, MO is 6 hours from me.
Just wanted to update you all! More to come!
