Adoption Event Report ☆ at GREENDOG on Feb. 23rd (Sun).

Recently, snow on the sides of our walking courses disappeared at last, and we feel that spring is around corner.
Don’t you have itchy eyes…?
On Feb. 23rd (Sun), a warm day for February, we brought 4 dogs and 2 cats and held an adoption event again thanks to GREEN DOG SQUARE Kobe (Jpn. only)!

Let’s take a look at 2 cats first since there was no entry on this blog on Cat Day (Feb. 22nd).
Oshibe and Meshibe, brother and sister, joined the event.
They have been very friendly since they were kittens and as you can see, they are gorgeous! However, they are likely to reach their first birthday at ARK…

The first thing Oshibe, a big eater, did at the venue was to eat. He seemed to have room not only in his stomach but also in his mind so he snuggled against people.
Meanwhile, Meshibe seemed nervous and stayed firmly in her dome bed.
I was quite convinced that the more kittens grow, the more they become sensitive to changes in their environment.
I wish I could show you Meshibe being very sweet at ARK.
They still are kittens to us ARK staffs while it seems that they are grown cats to visitors. Some of them asked us if we had kittens…
Kittens grow so fast that we can enjoy “tiny kittens” for just a fraction of a second.
In addition to that, you can see cats’ personalities if you adopt young cats instead of kittens.
Anyway, let’s keep our fingers crossed for them to meet their true families.

Lets’ move to dogs; the first one is Harp on a toilet sheet. She is becoming a “regular” at adoption events.
At adoption events, she comes to people only when she wants food; for the rest of the time, she keeps a “leave me alone” attitude. Yes, she is a type of girl who always goes at her own pace.
However, she becomes so happy when someone pets her that she shows her belly.

She would be calm at home without making a fuss, so it would be easy for you to have a dog like her.
Actually, we had a visitor who came all the way to see Harp this day.
Let’s see how it goes.

Again, on behalf of the dogs from the mountains, we brought Pooka, a chubby cute girl, this day.
The other dogs were very skinny when they came to ARK while she was the only dog which was so chubby that we once wondered if she was pregnant.
As you may guess, she is a big eater and that is a huge advantage in an adoption event!
She was able eat from anybody and everybody. Besides, she was calm and also came to people for affection.
As Aja did at the Dec. event, Pooka was always with people and enjoyed the warmth of the visitors’ hands.

She enjoyed a walk outside, although it was a surprise to us (in a good way, of course).
She may be the next one after Aja who gets her own home.

This is a golden retriever-mix, Oboro.
The day before the adoption event, Dan, which may be Oboro’s father, was moved to Tokyo so Oboro seemed to miss him at ARK. However, he enjoyed the adoption event a lot and was playing with the son of a volunteer with a ball throughout the event.
Since Dan has not taught him, Oboro is not good at playing with other dogs. He is a type of dog which, even though he loves dogs, mounts and annoys them at the same time.
Although he behaves in such a way, he will get back once he understands he annoyed other dogs. Which means that you can adopt him even if you already have another dog as long as he/she is a “teacher” type of dog!
With people? He definitely loves people, literally everyone. He would be good with kids, too.

On behalf of team “Mushrooms”, Eringi joined the event.
Thanks to a member of the ARK staff who brings him back home every day, he is now ok with cars and even leaps in the car on his own.
He used to excrete when scared so we thought he would do that at the event. What happened? Actually, he did great at the venue although he was so nervous that he couldn’t excrete at all while he was away from ARK…
Anyway, he proved that he is growing day by day.
So, we want Oboro to learn from Eringi since he sometimes has a problem of urine leakage.

Mushrooms (brown puppies) love dogs very much so they can walk even in an area new to them, as long as they have other dogs’ company.
Look at his face on the picture on the right! He was always in a corner during the event because he didn’t know what to do with so many guests, which was too much for him, but became totally happy when Oboro came to him.
He would become “a part of a family” very soon if he was adopted by a family with another dog(s).

No one could find their own home but several potential adopters visited us on this day!
We are looking forward to seeing you in Nose!
