    Thanks Fred, had to put down my 13+ yr old chow mix Friday and saw this on WGN TV later that night. Went to to find new puppy and found just what I wanted in Fort Wayne IN. Contacted the rescue and picked up my new buddy on Tuesday. Asked Gayla the rescuer if this puppy was the one I saw on TV and she said Yes. What a small world. Now ” Hillbilly” aka Billy ( since he was from Kentucky ) has a new home, And he is helping my heart heal from the pain of loosing an old friend.
