Meet Steve


Recommended Posts

Dear friends, the loss of our beloved Max has been heartbreaking and our house, despite the presenze of his little sister, was empty. The rescue center where I picked Max ten years ago put a post in his memory on their web page and while I was looking again at their post my eyes met the ones of a hound in search of his forever home....and so.....we decided to honour Max's memory adopting another hound in need. He's already in Italy, we'll take him next weekend.

Sounds like Max is watching over you and brought you Steve. I can't see the pictures on the link provided but will try again later.

What a handsome guy!  I hope he is able to fill or at least reconfigure that enormous hole in your heart from Max's passing.  Congrats!

There were far too many coincidences not to think it was Max who was sending Steve our way...when I called the rescue asking about Steve they told me he was already in Italy because he was the spare one to complete the van from Ireland (like Max was) and he was in foster in the same kennel in which was fostered Max. He is a big rambuctious goofball (just like Max). Some nights before I dreamt I was in a beach at night, I was calling for Max and Runa and a black dog came to me (never had one).

I'll put more pictures of him, thank you for your heartwarming welcome!

What a compelling and heartening set of messages and pointed coincidences. Max is taking good care of the humans he loves. :heart

Steve is beautiful.  Welcome to the fun of "dressing" a black dog.  They look fantastic is any color!

What a beautiful boy!  Max would be so glad for you.  And there is no better memorial for a loved pet than to give a home to another in need.  I hope Steve and Runa become good friends.

And so...we anticipated our trip and we went today to the kennel but unluckily Steve wasn't a good match with Runa....we were going to abort the mission but the rescue lady introduces us to another hound. Runa was a bit stressed at first (there was also a mistake from Steve's handler and she was bitten by him poor thing) but Fiveo was a real gentleman, he kept inviting her to play and never minded her growls. So we are going home with Fiveo, let's hope in a couple of days they'll become friends

It's too bad that handsome Steve wasn't a good fit, but Fiveo sounds perfect. I hope things continue to go well and he settles in quickly.
