Our adoptable four-legged friend this week is Mama, a nine-month Chihuahua mix at the Countryside Humane Society.
Mama was found "almost dead" alongside a Racine highway by an apartment dweller who nursed her back to health and wanted to keep her. Enter mean landlord (twirling black moustache, no doubt).
The landlord made our Good Samaritan bring Mama to the humane shelter, where she's just waiting for someone to call. We don't know whether she's really a Mama, but that was the name she picked up along the way.
UPDATE, 11/14: Mama has been adopted by a couple with a black lab. They wanted a lap dog. Mama loves her new large playmate and that warm comfortable lap!
P.S. Good news regarding Hap, last week's dog. He's been adopted by a Racine family whose last rescue dog gave them 15 years of companionship.
