Hi! I'm new not only to the forum, but to Sphynx's as well. :BigSmile: My kids and I had been admiring them for years and we were hoping to someday find one in rescue as we were very active in the rescue community until we had to retire due to my daughters health. An online rescue friend that works in a shelter had one come in and she was quite stressed so she took her home. When we found out she had one we were so excited and wanted to adopt her. She agreed to foster her until she could transport her to us. During the time she was fostering her, they TOTALLY fell in love with her and couldn't give her up! lol I've been a foster home for years and I know that there are just those times where something is meant to be, planned or not, and she was their girl as she loved them as much as they loved her! Of course she felt pretty bad, so she started putting the word out that we were looking and low and behold, we found a lady that was thinking about placing one of her adults and interestingly enough, she has three grandkids with Cystic Fibrosis, like my daughter, so it seemed we had our own little ''meant to be'' waiting for us! We still can't believe she is all ours! Without further ado..... here's Diva!

Awesome! I've had my sphynx about 8 months now (first cat since 1990). I like him more with each passing day. You're going to love the people here.

Congrats and Welcome!

Welcome to the forum, and to the wonderful world of the sphynx! I have a pretty good feeling that Diva will not be the only sphynx you bring into your life - it seems that once you get one, you just can't seem to ever live without them!

Diva is a beauty! I love her little black nose. I loved your story, too. It really does sound like it was meant to be! :Smile:

I'm so glad that you found Diva and the other baby also found her forever home. It never ceases to amaze me that these cats could ever end up in foster care. I couldn't imagine my life without my little monster...I mean angel :Wink:

Welcom to Sphynx Lair.
It is great you are getting your first sphynx.
I am getting another sphynx.
I had another breeder that did not work out before I got my sphynx.
She was worth the wait.
I bet you will want another sphynx.
I love Diva's colors.
She is so cute.

Aww what a wonderful story. I do love to see the rescues getting the love and care from their new owners.

I agree too, such a cute black button of a nose!

Looking forward to more pictures :)

Thanx everyone! Ya... I could DEFINITLEY see us wanting another down the road! We just can't get enough of her! lol I thought her little black nose was kind of unique, too. It looks like a little heart! :)

You may like the nose...but Walter is eyeballing the bed ;)
Isn't it cool!? When I saw it, I HAD to buy it, even though I didn't really need one. I only wish it was heated! lol

Ok... I can't help it... I gotta post some more pictures! lol

This was the one from the breeders website...



Here she is with the kids. She had to do a bit of a quarentine at first, {hence the mask on my daughter} to make sure she wasn't carrying anything as she was active in showing, as well during the transport, she had a stop over at another breeder who had just attended a show. My daughter actually got kennel cough from some foster puppies we had which is why we decided to quit rescue as so many of them come in sick from the shelter. :( Any new animals have to do a quarentine period to make sure they are healthy before being worked into the crew. Sorry about the bad quality pictures. My daughter dropped the good camera so we're stuck with the cell phone and video camera for now! lol



We had to do a stint in the hospital with my daughter Raven for a celiac biopsy and all she cared about the whole time was coming home to Diva and finally kissing her without a mask on as her quarentine would be over! lol






Diva's motto... PET ME DAMMIT! lol



I tapped the wall with my foot to get Diva to look and they both did! lol



Playing fetch! I just love how active she is. The kids are used to VERY active dogs so they are lovin' how active she is!





Setting up to meet the dogs....



She couldn't even care a less about Scarling. Just ignored her and groomed herself. lol

Arez's tail was going a million miles a minute! lol



She couldn't be bothered with Tank either...



This was her face when meeting Tank.... lol....



Didn't get any shots of her meeting my other dog because the light faded and the cell phone camera is useless then. Gaud... I REALLY need a new camera! Ya... we're obsessed with her! lol

Great pics! Thanks for sharing.

Sphynxes are notoriously great with dogs, but since Diva was active in showing before you got her, I bet she can handle just about anything you put in front of her! :ThumbsUp:

Side note: Love your pit bulls!! There are a few of us APBT lovers on here- always happy to see another one!

Thanx guys! I am already going crazy without my camera. I'm a picture snappin' maniac! lol

Awesome! They are such great dogs. It's a shame so many irresponsible people are destroying their reputation. I've owned the breed for 18 years, have had seven personal dogs, and have had probably about 200 of them come through my home through rescue, boarding, etc... and I just like them more and more everyday! lol

Gaud..... does she ever! She is definitley her mothers daughter! lol She was so awesome when we were fostering, helping the dogs adjust, excersising them, the whole deal. She was as broken hearted as me when we had to quit. :( We've got quite the little zoo here with four dogs, two cats, two bunnies and a fish and the vast majority of her time is spent lovin' them all up! lol

In fact, after re-visiting the website of Sundancenbare cattery today, I just made a little mistake...the kitten I was interrested in, was from Razzel Dazzel mom and not from Diva.
But no change...Diva is really superb !
Congrats for her
