My Name is Fig

June 22, 2011

black mission figs After two months of trying to figure out our pup’s personality and watching him change shape size, texture, color, and energy level…

Firstly, he is a reddish, purplish, brownish, black dog with a couple tufts of white on his belly – much like the mission figs in our backyard.

Secondly, figs are thought to be the sweetest fruit on earth. Before refined sugar, figs were the magic, and our pup is the sweetest little thing you have ever met.

Thirdly, Figgy Pudding is a traditional holiday treat. Our pup was born around Christmas and has that classic “doggy in the window” look (the one with the waggly tail).

Meet Fig!

First, Fig was dropped in a shelter in Oklahoma. Then he was shipped in a bus with 20 other dog to a safe haven in California where we were introduced.

We feel so lucky that he found his way to us. Quite a journey it was.

Now our journey together has just begun. So, bring me Figgy Pudding and a cup of good cheer!

Please support the best animal rescue ever, so they can help more lovely homeless pups be their best:

This is where we found our little Fig. They take in battered and abandoned animals and then restore their minds and bodies with exercise, fresh farm air, and loads of socialization. It’s a first class operation.

  1. Hi Heather,
    Just came across your blog about Fig. I have two schnauzer/poodles I rescued. Fig looks a lot like Bear. If you get time go to my facebook and check out their pictures! I love them so much. Bear and Bucky are exact opposites in personality but compliment one another wonderfully. I enjoyed reading about Fig and all the information. Both Bucky and Bear have docked tails but aren’t bothered by it, luckily. Their ears were left natural though. Best to you and your furry companion!
