We adopted Dakota two years ago when she was about one year old. The family that had her was having a new baby and didn't want her around a newborn. She is the most loving dog ever and we don't know how we could live without her.
I like you to meet my sweet Gypsi girl. She was up for adoption at the local shelter and her photo was featured in the newspaper. I couldn't resist that sweet face. She wasn't too sure about sharing a home with my little boy Bandi (both are Shih-tzu's) but after a couple of days they bonded. Finding the perfect name for her was a tough decision but as we were walking one day, I told her that she was a little gypsy and that she could probably tell me some interesting tales. She looked at me when I said gypsy and that's why I named her "Gypsi".
We adopted Max (lab/border collie mix) from a local shelter when he was 4 months old. Shortly after, we volunteered to foster BoBo, a 10 month old lab mix. BoBo and Max hit it off from day one and we adopted BoBo a week later. We wondered how anyone could give up such a loving gentle dog? Our "boyz" are awesome! We could not imagine our life without them and they are the best of buds!
We were looking to add to our family after we lost our sweetheart Shana to cancer and found an adoption group called Paws 4 You Rescue in Miami. Even though we live an hour away we made the drive and fell madly in love with Riley who we think is a Tibetan Terrier mix. Murphy, an Aire-Doodle, who is also a rescue accepted her instantly and they are the best of friends now. They both keep us smiling. Rescue groups don't get enough credit for the hard work that they do. Thank you Paws 4 You!
My husband drives a transport van, part time. On a regular lady's pickup every two weeks, he saw a small dog tied to a tree where she left him when she was away. On this particular day, he saw Muffin tied to the tree, right next to their travel trailer, in a terrible thunderstorm, with no shelter, food or water and said her boyfriend would not allow him inside the travel trailer. My husband asked the woman if she would let him have the dog. She said "Yes, I'm sure you can give him a better home than I can". Two weeks later, the travel trailer burned to the ground, destroying the tree where Muffin would have been tied at the time of the fire. We had renamed him "Muffin" because he looked like a ragmuffin but today we call him "Lucky Muffin". And we too are so lucky to have him. He is a joy and even gets along with all of our cats.
While browsing the Lookin' for Love Animal Rescue sight, this beautiful male dog caught my eye, it was LOVE at first sight. he was being housed at the local pound and in danger of being euthanized. I HAD to save him. He is the BEST dog, loveable and very shy. He has survived heartworm treatment and is now in very good health. He and Scooter, my other dog, r best buds. I thank Lookin' for Love everyday for bringing Jay-Z into my life!
We met Eddie at the Robeson County Humane Society. He had a pronounced limp and we learned that he had been shot in the leg; the shrapnel had shattered the bone, knocked the ball out of the socket and some of the shrapnel was still inside. He was about a year old and so loving and affectionate that we couldn't imagine not giving him everything he needed. We adopted him and scheduled his surgery. He now has no limp. A metal plate was inserted in his leg and the ball was reseated in the socket. He is now healthy and happy and keeps our other three dogs on their toes. The whole family adores him!
Daisy's owner said she was a "bad" dog and kept her chained in the back yard. He forgot she was still growing and her collar grew into her neck. It was a 4 hour surgery to save her; only to have her put back in the yard with no love and attention. Finally, we convinced Daisy's owner to give her up. He told us she was too wild to live indoors. How wrong he was! Daisy is a very calm and grateful girl who has never even made a potty mistake indoors. She now has a nice warm bed, toys (at first she had no idea what to do with them) lots of food and clean water, and several dog brothers and sisters and a few cats to run and play with.
Winter was a stray cat I met while having my last cigarette of the night. I wasn't sure I should, but I left her some food, and boy, was she grateful. After a week of this, I took her to my vet, got her shots, and brought her into my house, where she made herself right at home. She is a wonderful, goofy, loveable little imp, full of mischief and affection. She gives me plenty of new cat-stories everyday!
We wanted a neutered, de-clawed male for a playmate with our kitten, Kyra. I called the shelter in our small town and by chance, they had a boy, and we believe he is about the same age as Kyra. His owner didn't give the shelter his name or any information, just dropped him off. He has become Kyra's companion. Boris has become our sweet snuggle bug, we all love him. I can't see how anyone could have ever given him up!
