We were notified that Carlo had come in to the same shelter at the same time as we were making arrangements to pull Paloma. From Susanne at the shelter,
"And another white GSD was turned in today (this was Thursday) because they 'no longer had a place for him.' This is Carlo; he's 18 months old and already neutered. Good with kids & dogs. He's super sweet, was so excited to get out of kennel."
Susanne asked if we could take him, too. We asked for and received the following video from the shelter:

Before we could say yes or no on taking Carlo, he was adopted! We hoped for the best for him and completed our arrangements for Paloma

UPDATE 10/2: We were notified this morning that Carlo was returned to the shelter because (are you ready?), "He refused to stay outside." So, in other words, because Carlo wanted to be in the home near his family, and this wasn't what the adopters wanted, they discarded him. We can only hope the shelter did not allow them to adopt another dog that they could make stay outdoors for the rest of its life.

Carlo once again waits at the shelter

With literally not a square inch of space for him, we had to agree to take Carlo as the shelter was full and they needed space. We seemed to be his last hope.

UPDATE 10/4: Thanks to our wonderful transporter, Tera, Carlo is safely at Crossroads this afternoon. According to Cathleen at Crossroads, "He's young and very lovable. Loves kids."

Pure joy ~ leaving the shelter

Happy boy
