Meet Jingle, a beautiful Redbone Coonhound dog.
No, you're not going crazy. No, it's not the first stages of Alzheimer's, nor is it deja vu. You've seen Jingle before.
In fact, you've seen Jingle twice on this blog. The first time was in our Q and A interview with Kristi and Glenn Austin about fostering dogs. The second was in our Follow-up Friday blog post where we gave you an update on Jingle.
Jingle will steal your heart. She stole mine.
Jingle was found as a stray with her two 8 month old puppies by animal control in Christiansburg, VA. No one stepped up to claim this little family. The puppies were adopted, but Jingle remained homeless.
Pulled from the Montgomery County Friends of Animal Care and Control by City Dogs Rescue, thanks to the persuasive efforts of Kristi Austin who volunteered to provide foster care while Jingle was vetted, had surgery and was spayed. Jingle was saved.

City Dogs Rescue was formed for one reason: to rescue adoptable dogs in overcrowded and high-kill shelters where resources are severely limited. They offer a lifeline to as many of these pups as possible. City Dogs Rescue is a network of volunteers who foster dogs with volunteer families and donated boarding facilities. By finding dogs permanent and loving homes in the DC metropolitan area, they enrich the lives of both canine and human.
We always feature an adoptable dog on Sunday at Talking Dogs. They're all special and they all deserve a loving forever home. However, today's dog is more special to me.
You see, this dog has captured my heart. It's one of those inexplicable things that just happens. Like it or not, I feel a connection with this particular dog. If our lives were in a different place, there's no doubt in my mind that she'd be joining our family. Please help me network and share to find Jingle that perfect forever home.
