I talked to another lady from HRI today, a local contact. These are just fantastic people. Everyone from HRI has been so helpful and caring, both about me and my family and about Kepler. I'm so glad I joined this forum. I would not have known about HRI if I hadn't joined the forum, and they have really been lifesavers through this whole process of finding a new home for Kepler. I cannot say enough good things about them.
She said she obviously can't take him through HRI, but if all else fails she can try to rehome him on her own, unofficially. She also said based on all the facts (we talked for a long time), he probably was a puppy mill dog and was likely abused. She thinks - and I agree - that he would probably do best in a home of a homebody who has lots of experience with training dogs. And she said she would send me a list of questions to ask the lady we're meeting on Saturday to help us make sure she's a good fit.
As it gets closer to when we might have to say goodbye to Kepler, I get more and more sad. It's the best for him, but it's going to be hard on us all. I've made him special homemade dinners all week. And I'm definitely going to have a good cry when it's all over.
