Once the leg was removed, and he had time to heal, Pogo’s true personality came to life; happy, hoppy, and lovable.  “He’s fast, and obviously hasn’t missed a step, he’s been neutered, he’s heart worm negative, had all his shots,” Day said.   Despite being through a trauma, Pogo shines bright and is the epitome of happi- ness, thanks to the Day fami- ly. Pogo loves his new life as a foster dog with lots of room to run and other animals to play with, especially the two other dogs that are part of the Day family. Day was excited to mention that Pogo already has a meet and greet with a possible family for his forever home in the upcoming days. However, Day is very careful in matching her foster pets with their appropriate fami- lies.  “If he doesn’t get adopted, we’re gonna keep him. He’s the easiest dog we’ve ever had, he doesn’t really ever bark. Right now we only have two dogs; we haven’t had just two dogs since 2002,” Day admits.  Parker County Pets Alive is a local animal rescue group formed in 2012 that not only assists the Weatherford/ Parker County Animal Shelter with their needs, but also incor- porates our growing community in to their efforts to make positive changes for pets and pet owners.
