Everett’s back exit seems to attract strays. A little while ago Everett heard strange noises and went to investigate. He found a large grey mutt rummaging through the trash. The dog was obviously hungry but seemed quite friendly.
A bowl of water and a couple of raw burgers later Everett had a new friend – and responsibility.
Since there was no collar and Everett had no idea who his owner might be, he took him to the next vet to check for a chip. The vet didn’t find one. He suspected the dog might have been abandoned and hadn’t been a stray for long. It’s still a very young dog and he apparently has some Weimaraner blood.
Everett decided to take him back home instead of taking him to a shelter. He put some posters up and mailed a picture to the animal shelters in the area in case somebody asked for the dog.
Everett and Bell hope nobody will claim him. Bell named him Stoner for his color and his friendly and laid-back temperament. They have a lot of fun training him. Stoner can be rambunctious but he is eager to learn new things. Stoner follows Bell everywhere, the two of them hit it off right from the start. It makes Everett smile to see the two former strays thrive under his roof.
