Bouncer, A New Lifetime Guest at Spirit Animal Sanctuary

Spirit Animal Sanctuary, opens her heart and arms in welcoming Bouncer, a four-year old female Labrador Retriever mix to her pack.

Bouncer’s story : We received a call last week from a couple on Long Island, New York, (my old stomping grounds) after they were referred to us by a friend, who placed their dog Roger ( Ra-Geeeee) with us last year. They had stepped in and saved Bouncer at 11 months old from an abusive situation, a  guy that apparently wasn’t all that fond of his dog. Because of that, she has some issues with men, but that’s not the reason why they contacted us.

Bouncer started becoming a little freaked out when their two-year grandchild wouldn’t leave  her alone, and they started worrying about what might happen. And rightfully so. This, unfortunately is a very common occurrence once a toddler becomes very mobile. If a dog is going to have a problem with a child, it will usually manifest itself once that child starts walking around a lot.

I’ll try to get around to posting a video of Bouncer, soon. BTW, they named her Bouncer because she jumps up and down like a bouncing ball, which she already started doing, it’s too cute.

  7. Yes, Bouncer is very lucky…….She has another servant.

  8. It sounds like Bouncer has found an extended family that is willing to love her unconditionally. I am thrilled for her and for my friends who had to part with her.
