DOG OF THE WEEK

Meet Fiona
updated: Dec 01, 2012, 9:00 AM

By Edhat Subscriber

Fiona is a lucky four year old rescue dog from Hesperia. My husband and I drove all the way to Glendale to adopt her based only on a photo. Because her coat was so matted when she was turned in at the pound, she was given a tight buzz cut. She was then labeled a poodle-terrier mix, put up for adoption on PetFinders.com and pawned off to one (me) desirous of a standard poodle. But I was gullible, as I was captivated by her eyes.

Then her coat began to grow and grow and grow. She now most closely resembles a bearded collie and I am convinced she is. Her plaintive eyes remain the window to her soul. We are very lucky as she is a very satisfactory companion.

No matter what she is you definitely won the jackpot with this one. What a face! You could win a contest with that second photo. I don't see how you can get anything accomplished. If she was my dog, every time I saw that face I'd have to stop and hug and kiss her.

Nobody could resist that face! How lucky you both are. I love rescue dogs and the people who rescue them.

She is the best dog ever, says me, Fiona's aunt. And those eyes..

How in the heck did you get this dog in Target? I have a service dog and they required documentation and even then they were snotty about it.

Fiona went shopping with us in Ventura. We did not see any "No Dogs" signs so I suggested that we put her in the cart. Fiona and her mom got evicted eventually by the management but before that she received a lot of admiring glance!

So cute! I love her expressions! 146, I was thinking the same thing about a photo contest. :)

My first thought was: Ah, GAH! Not another "Fiona" pic. Whew. A sweeet happy dog, instead.

Although you'd better not let my friend see your dog in a shopping cart. I'd never hear the end of it. (And I do hope you had the courtesy to put down a towel, first. Dog's do tend to sit right on their . . .)

Wishing best to you both. Thank you for rescuing a dog.

Oh, wow, she is simply delicious. What a great pooch. You're both so lucky to share your lives. God bless you for rescuing her.

What a sweet baby girl...a rescue knows that they have been rescued.

I spend time riding my mule around in the rural housing areas of Hesperia, and a big percentage of the lots have half-built and abandoned buildings on them. The rest seem to have an assortment of guard dogs, and I have come to identify properties by the creatures on patrol who come running out to intimidate passers by. Fortunate for this lovely dog that she escaped a life there.

She does indeed look like a bearded collie. What a sweet face - and those eyes are downright haunting.

She is indeed beautiful!!! As a true lover of authentic mutts I have to confess to a snicker when you were fooled! I've never understood the idea of going for a certain breed.

And @373P regarding the towel in the shopping cart... Are you kidding me? Do you really think those carts are any less sanitary than a dog's behind?

OP, wishing you many, many years of puppy bliss!
