INDY for CANADIAN PET IDOL

Indy is a purebred Eurasier, born in Ontario, Canada on March 11, 2001. In a very special breed, he was a very special boy, with pinto markings and an irrepressible, optimistic personality.

Unfortunately, things did not go well for this little Eurasier.
Skip ahead about 5 ½ years.

A pinto Eurasier is found in a shelter in Maryland, US.

Matted, skinny, scared and sick, Eurasier Rescue pulled him out, cleaned him up, paid his meds for his Lymes, and fostered him with hugs and affection while a search was undertaken for a new home for him. By the end of the month, the hearts and best wishes of the Eurasier community climbed into the airplane with him as he embarked to his new home in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

Once home, Indy proved to be a bright and gentle dog. Although he knew nothing when he arrived, little milestones abound. Learning his name. Learning to attend when spoken to. Learning to come, sit, stay, shake a paw. Quickly earning the nickname “Indy Houdini”, and then slowly learning that there is no need to escape. Not bad for a 6 year old, catching up on the basics.

We have entered Indy in the Canadian Pet Idol contest. It was hoped that he would do well and indeed, he has qualified for the FINALS !!! Any prize money will be donated to Eurasier Rescue. And what an irresistable opportunity to blow a fat raspberry to Indy’s former owners, who never knew what it was they threw away like last year's news – a cherished and loyal companion, a Star, a Pet Idol.

You are invited to vote for Indy May 12 to 19 inclusive. Go to PetIdol.ca and click on the INDY link. When you have voted, you need to go to your email and click on the Pet Idol link that they sent you. Vote from home, Vote from work. Vote all your email addresses. Your support is a celebration of this little guy’s good luck story, goes to a great cause, and is deeply appreciated.
