This sweet little Corgi-Border Collie mix had a bit of a rocky time finding his real Home. Coming into foster care early in December from an over-crowded shelter, "Sam" stayed with us for a couple of weeks.
Almost immediately "Sam" just wasn't right for him and he became "Zippy." With a good dose of the Border Collie personality, this little guy is definitely very Zippy!
Joining another foster family during the Christmas-New Years Holiday period, Zippy made more friends, but this still wasn't Home.
On January 6 Zippy struck it rich. He found his family, a lovely couple with just the right experience for an active fellow like this, and some land for him to run - perfect!
And now, he has his third name. In fact he is carrying on a family tradition. "Ernie" was the name of his new owner's grandfather - an avid dog lover. We're told that he'd be very honored.
Happy New Year Ernie! You waited awhile, but you found a Terrific Home!
