Adopted Chompers

IT WORKS! 

Nominating a dog at the Salmon Animal Shelter for Mascot finds them their forever home.  We are two for two.  Only dogs who have called the Salmon Animal Shelter home for a significant numbers of months qualify.  Chompers was well-qualified.  She is was us for 1 1/2 years.

In January, 2014, Chompers was nominated as the Shelter Mascot.  The weblog story featuring Chompers stated:  “The last dog that was going to be nominated for mascot (Nubis) was adopted.  Chompers – you are hereby nominated to be Shelter mascot!”  We also questioned in the story if it was the name Chompers that had kept her at the Salmon Animal Shelter for almost one year.

In April, 2014, Chompers was transported to the Montana Animal Companion Network (MTCAN) as a guest at the home of Judy.  Every Saturday the MTCAN holds an event in front of the Hamilton, MT Walgreen’s.  On April 19, 2014, Chompers, renamed Chandra, was one of the featured dogs available for adoption.

On May 4, 2014, Chandra found her forever home.  She hit the jackpot big time and she certainly deserved it.  Not many dogs can keep their good nature when they are sheltered for 1 ½ years!  A retired couple adopted her and there is no more home shuffles or abandonments at a shelter in her future!  She is with her family all the time and they even have a grandson she can play with.  Woohoo!

Aaaahhh - to be LOVED!

So was it the name Chompers which delayed her finding a forever family?  We aren’t sure because she is back to being called Chompers.  Once the couple’s grandson  learned that her original name was Chompers, he INSISTED she was not a Chandra.

We doubt Chompers cares what she is called.  She is just happy to have her forever family that adores her.
