As told by Diane, an independent rescuer in NC... "Midnight was an owner surrender in the summer of 2009. He was not quite a year old. He was fostered by a woman that used to volunteer with us. She has two Chinese crested dogs, both around 7-8 pounds. Midnight kept trying to play with them, but they were afraid of him, and she was afraid they'd get hurt. So she put him outside to be a "guard dog". He seems to really like other dogs. She never spends time with him other than just feeding him once a day. He was on a very long tether and i've never seen him run free. I've been trying to place him since last summer. "
Jessica with Black Dog Rescue in Maine offered to take Midnight and find him a forever family of his own.
|The loveable Mr. Midnight loaded up and ready to take the first of four flights today, which will take him to Maine and a chance for a better life.|
Midnight arrives at Williamsburg, VA (KJGG), flown in by Leg 1 Pilot Dave.
Midnight is as strong as he is loveable. He took us all for a drag.

|Such a happy dog. He'll never know how close he came to the end, if not for the wonderful rescue volunteers|
Time for pre-flight inspection before starting Leg 2.
The air filter smells ok.
|Exhaust stack is ok too.|
|Treats are in my pocket silly, not the bag.|
