Adoption Tales

We strive to find the most perfect, loving homes possible for the pets that come into rescue with us. Our successes are due to the joint efforts of our volunteers and the individuals that adopt and take these deserving pets into their homes and lives.

We love hearing from our adopters with tales and stories of them and their newest family members. Pictures and "Adoption Tales" may be submitted any time after a pet has been adopted. Follow up reports, stories and tales are also welcome.

Teresa, Just wanted to let you know Ms. Dahlia is doing wonderfully!! We have fallen so in love with her and the same seems to be true of her. She's "Momma's shadow" and she and the boys (Stevie Ray and Ivan) get along so well. They play and play, sleep on each other (and us!). She's very spoiled, still living it up on our couch and she sleeps between us at night in our bed – there's barely enough space, but we absolutely love it! She even got her feet wet at the pond the other day while the boys were swimming. She has brought so much joy to our home and our hearts. Dahlia is wonderful and a Godsend! Thank you for taking care of her and all the other sweet souls and everything you do! Sincerely, Andrea D.

Hi Mommy T, I have had a very good week. I have learned how to go up and down the stairs all by myself - really fast. Also, I rode in my car seat to take Dad to work. Ben bought a really tasty "all natural" dog bone treat for me. I sure surprised him when I took care of that bone fast! I have explored and sniffed the entire house. It took me a while - but I think I've covered it all.These people also pet, scratch and kiss me a lot. So, I think their training is coming along really well. When Ben is home I sleep with him. When he goes to his other house I sleep with Mom & Dad. I will go visit his house soon - but Mom M wanted me to sniff all over this one first. Mom said I was cute enough to be on the cover of "Beautiful Puppies". Love, Dauphin/Jill

ONO

Hi Teresa, Ono plays and runs all day. He will start daycare on Monday. We love him so much. He is the light of our lives. He is learning all about house training (and doing really well) and learning to bite only his toys . He ended up sleeping in our bed... we couldn't stand how upset he got in his crate... he is a joy and all of New York city stops to tell us how cute he is! Thanks so much for checking on him and we will keep you updated on his progress. ~ Shanley

Carl

CARL

Hi Teresa. Carl is doing great. He loved the holidays and enjoyed all the company and attention. He is doing really well with his obedience and as good as can be expected from a Rottie with retrieving. He does the bring it back to you twice and if you lose it again you are on your own trick. Heidi loves him as long as she gets treats first. They have romped in this snow until they are both exhausted. It's like toddlers, they have to go play in the snow, don't stay out long, come in to be dried off and then want back out again. Carl sticks to me like velcro and has spent a lot of time lying by the bed to keep me company. He is on heartworm prevention, weighs about 104lbs and still has the biggest feet of any dog in town. Our vets just love him. He is a great ambassador for Rottweilers. Have a happy New Year. ~ Julie

Buffy

BUFFY

Hi Teresa. Buffy is doing awesome!!! She is the perfect dog for us! She has come out of her shell and fits right in! She's now even got a bark and protects us from anyone at the door. We just love her sooo much!!! She even did great on a five hour drive to Ft. Worth for Christmas! She was a perfect passenger! Thanks again for rescuing Buffy for us. She is the best!!! Hope you had a nice holiday! ~ Jessica
