Bob and John, thanks SO much for saving this precious girl. It was suppose to be a male Border Collie going but the shelter failed to tell Michelle, the rescuer who was meeting Bob at Muscle Shoals airport, that he had been adopted, which is great news BUT Bob was already in the air, not good. 2 more Border Collie's came in and Michelle and I talked, and she took off to the airport with one of the new ones that had just been turned in. So, thankfully we were able to still save one from a gassing shelter and both pilots didn't waste a trip. I've never had that happen and another lesson that we need to pull teeth and get the shelters to go physically look and make sure the dog that had a rescue hold on him/her is still there, not assume they know what they are talking about. This is one that we're pulled from alot and the 1st time this has happened so for the pilot's sake, we have to be extra extra careful that they are still there.
I hope you're 1st transport was a peaceful one and that the girl's life you saved made a good co-pilot for you
