Adopted! After 3 Years, Prison Mascot "Bandit" Finds Home



GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga.— A Gwinnett County jail mascot has found a new forever family!

Earlier this week, 11Alive introduced you to Bandit. The dog, who is in a wheelchair after being paralyzed when he had a bad reaction to heartworm treatments, has been a jail dog for three years.

After the story aired, officials said that a family stepped forward to open the doors of their home to Bandit.

Linda Jeanes, the former direction of Gwinnett County Animal Control, said she saw Bandit on TV and fell in love. Her family lives on 25 acres, and they plan on building him a ramp to make getting around a bit easier.

This is about the program Weezie came through. It made me reflect on the fact that she was "thrown away" essentially. She was in the shelter for FIVE MONTHS. No one claimed her. I have a lot of loving to do, to make it up to her.

Yesterday was five months since Weezie's "gotcha day." It's been a roller coaster, and I'm still not sure things are settled down, at least not as much as I'd like. She got a little snippy/snappy about a toy last evening when I was playing with her, so I had to take it away from her. Sigh. More work ahead. But I'm trying everything possible to make it work out. If I can just keep her from running away! Tomorrow might be another day care adventure.

THAT DOG!

In our dog-world, we all went skiing and Buster doesn't do so well in the car (eats seatbelts) so I called my Dad to come over and pick him up around lunchtime and take him to his house until we got home. Buster loaded up okay but they didn't get a block away before he started crying and fussing so bad they just drove around the block and let him whiz on a few spots then back into the house... Awwww. 

 
Can do you one better, when he was a pup, Spock chewed the piece that the seatbelt clips into like it was a bone. It was the kind with a system to absorb shock in a crash and cost a small fortune to replace.

Front-clip harnesses are very effective against pulling, and the dogs get into them willingly.

Nope, but thanks for the thought. That's what they sent home with her, and it was COMPLETELY useless for her. My trainer has got us working with a prong collar, since a "gentle leader" head harness didn't work either. The prong collar is getting through her tough head not to pull. I have really bad hands (going to need joint replacement surgery on at least one thumb sooner rather than later) and I can't have a dog that pulls.
