After loosing the love of my life Patch at the age of 15 to heart disease I was at a loss with my life.
Then one day i was out the front of my house and saw a stray trying to cross the road, as she made her way a speeding van hit her and she rolled under, the van kept going and didnt stop and i was left with nursing this injured dog, after rushing her to the vet and her hospital stay i dedcided to adopt her and try and make her life worth living again.
Shes now a real handfull with lots of energy chasing birds in the garden and getting her daily tummy rubs.
She now has a family and we love her!
Bella came into my life when we both needed each other. I had just lost a loving cousin and was going through the mourning process and she had been abandoned. I can't imagine doing that to another living being but I give thanks that she came into my world through their decision or rather lack of.... Anyway, my roommate's brother was working at a car dealership when this guy came in with her stating that he had been walking down the road and heard a dog whelping and barking. He went to the back yard and there was my Bella chained to a post with a bowl that had no water and no food to be seen. He stated that the house had been vacated because there was a sign on the door. So, who knows how long she had been there, even for a few moments is too much!!! Well, Ricky being the dog lover takes her and brings her over to the house that night. From that moment on it was love at first sight.
The second year I had Bella she became pregnant with Ricky's Min/Pin Miko and had 5 babies. I kept one little girl and named her Mia. They both were with me when we made the long trek from Texas to Tennessee and that is where my Bella is now at rest. I have since made the trek back home to Texas but my heart is still back in Tennessee along with Bella. It was ironic because Ricky was there to help me bury her 10 years later. It's funny how life sometimes goes full circle. I am so grateful that I had those years to spend with her. She lives on through Mia and in Mia's son Miko, named after his grandpa!
Scrappy is a pitmatian. Pitbull/Dalmatian mix.
Scrappy was dumped off at the local park here in town last December. My husband and I decided to get outside and get some fresh air. We went down to the park to look at the lake level. We had been flooded since March. On the way back home, my husband decided to leave the park by a route we almost never take. As we were leaving, he slammed on the brakes. I asked him, "What's wrong?". He said he thought he saw a puppy. I told him to back up and he was right. There next to some old cement steps sat this little bitty 5 week old puppy. I got out and went over to it and it ran into my arms. We bought the puppy home and thawed her out. She is now 8 months old and rules the roost here. She adores people and has never met a stranger. She adores children. Whoever dumped her is missing out on the most loving, gentle puppy ever. She has a home with us until she passes. May that be a very long time.
We got to know Gus when I was dogsitting for his foster mom. He had been found roaming the countryside with another dog before being taken to a shelter, where his foster mom found him plastered against his kennel, begging for attention.
When it came time for my fiancee and I to move out on our own, we knew we wanted a dog to share our love with, but we didn't have the time or money for a puppy. We looked at rescue sites and shelters, but didn't like that we couldn't spend much time getting to know the dog before we brought it home. That's when we started thinking about Gus. He always stood out in the pack because he wanted attention above anything else. He had no manners and no inhibitions, but was very dedicated to getting love. He was perfect, and he has been every since.
Petunia (who has the body of Flubadub) came from an Alabama shelter and was transferred to an Atlanta rescue group. She has the appetite of a goat; she'll eat anything, anytime and it was obvious she was starving when we adopted her. Even though she's gained weight, she's still our "little goat" always looking for a meal. She's the most affectionate dog we've ever had and seems really appreciative that she has a real home now. Best of all, she's become the best buddy of our other dog, Daisy.
This precious young girl was abandoned on an Indian Reservation in Arizona. When her "rescue angel" found her she was skin and bones with many wounds. He took her to the vet and that's how we found her. Lucy wears the scars of a difficult beginning but is now the princess of the house she shares with her 10yr old brother Joey. She keeps us smiling with her qwirky personality. It is amazing that Lucy is so trusting and loving after being treated so harshly. Humans should learn from our animal friends.
Buck is the rescuer! One October stormy night Penny's kennel collasped inward. She's my fawn Pitt who just had her first litter of pups. Somehow, I think due to tornadic winds, she and one of her pups ended up behind a 6' fence in the neighbor's pool. Not sure how long they were in there, it was 2:00 am when this happened, but had it not been for Buck (blue brindle) barking insistantly we wouldn't have woke up & saved her from the freezing water. Unfortunately the pup didn't make it but Buck didn't give up on his "woman". We're so happy with our Pitt family and we kept one of her first pups - Hawkeye, the black brindle.
I adopted Midnight when she had been living 2 years at the Miami Humane Society. She had been there her entire life and had been adopted twice and been returned twice due to her aggressive behaviour. It seems she was just waiting for me. I had inquired about her 6 months prior to seeing her again at the center when they told me she was brought back. With a lot of love, care, attention- she changed so much that no one recognizes her now. She has been with me thru the ups and the downs and she has brought me so much joy in my life. She is very appreciative and shows me how much she loves me. August 3 will mark our 2 year anniversary together.
One night I heard a loud noise outside my apt building. When I checked I found this adorable little girl who we named Cassie. She was only 8 mths old and someone had just left her outside. She is the clown of our family and even though it has only been a month, I can't imagine life without her. She has a forever home!!
We found Otto at out local shelter when he was just a pup. He was the funniest thing, he was all black and he had a curly little pig's tail. His mother and all his siblings had all been adopted before him and he was all alone. I'm sure it had something to do with that tail! When we went to the room where he was being kept, he was a ball of energy and running around the room with a giant stuffed animal. It was love at first sight. We brought him home and he moved right in, it was like he was meant to be with us. Now six years later, his tail is long and curly and he still loves his toys. Otto is the most loving and loyal dog I've ever had. I am so happy that he waited for us to come to the shelter.
