We’re not just busy wrapping up one Summer week, we are ramping up for another huge event in the form of the NBC/Telemundo #ClearTheShelters adoption event on August 15th. Of course, the best way to clear those shelters is for us to continue focusing on our main purpose which is getting great rescue dogs adopted so we can pull at risk dogs from the shelters to find them homes too.
This week Dahlila, Aiden, Bennie, Joby, Chandell, Chandler, Lillia, Regina, Robin (now Penny), Tanner & Zander (now Zeke) celebrated gotcha day!
We also received some updates and pictures to share from TLC alumni:
Anze FKA Jay
Sorry for being so delayed, but I’ve been meaning to give you an updated on Anze (Jay). He’s come a long way since bringing him home close to a month ago. Originally, he spent the first few days, and a good part of the first two weeks in and out of his crate. More recently, he’s really coming out of his shell. He’s really taking to Landon and following his lead. He follows him around, tries engaging him to play, but Landon, being 9, doesn’t always have the energy of a 9 month old! Speaking of energy, every morning after we go out, he comes back in and just tears through the house! We also spent the first few weeks on a leash every time we went outside, but recently, I’ve let him off of his leash, and he hasn’t disappointed! He will he business and come right back to me waiting at the door. This coming weekend, we’ll see how he takes to my dad’s pool! Overall, he’s been an absolute treat, but he still has some of his stray tendencies such as fear and timidness. Again, thank you very much for everything!
Bruce FKA Tim Tam (Willow FKA Bindi’s pup)
Hello, I love to brag about my baby!!!! He is doing great. Bruce is a water bug and we bought him a pool to play in. He is the happiest boy I have ever meet. We are seeing a cardiologist for a heart murmur just to make sure everything is ok and to make sure and hope it’s one that will go away. We just don’t want to put him under anesthesia without knowing how severe it is. He is being seen at the end of this month. No matter what he will be taken care of. Thank you for checking in!!! Here is a picture of Bruce!
Blodwynn FKA Pizelle (Willow FKA Bindi’s pup)
Hi, Blodwynn is loved by all especially me. she loves going to Indian Mountain Lake , chasing squirrels, birds, deer but most of all playing in the lake water. i am so grateful for her. thank you again and again 🙂 enclosed is a recent picture..pictures. one is with myself the other with daughter molly.
Calvin has really been an awesome addition to our family! We love him so much but sometimes it’s hard to get snuggle time because he’s always hanging out with our other dog!
Duncan FKA Landon (Bella Lou’s pup)
Duncan is doing great and I am so happy to have him in my family. Everyone knows him in my complex and has watched him grow up. He is very spoiled with attention since I work from home and frequents the dog park 1-2 times per day where he has “his crew” he hangs out with. He’s not real fond of swimming but he loves sitting at my parents beach house right on the bay, enjoying the breeze. Everyone who meets Duncan immediately falls in love. He is now 8 months old and 54 pounds.
We love, love, love our new puppy Paxton, she is the best addition to our family and we are soooooo happy that we decided to recue her!!!! Paxton is great with kids, she is great with other dogs (lots of trips to the dog park) she is just a joy to have as part of our family! Paxton is just the best puppy in the world and I know you must hear that a lot but we are truly honored and blessed to have her as part of our family!!
Paxton is never away from us, she goes everywhere with us, she goes to visit friends with us, she goes with us to my moms when we visit her, she will even go with us if we go to the local store! She recently went down to Bethany Beach Delaware with us on vacation, check out the pictures!!!
Paxton’s family also provided us with a story to help reinforce the importance of microchipping your dog:
Jewel . . .was wandering around our neighborhood the other night and my two oldest daughters, Isabella and Carly picked her up and brought her home. I saw that she was chipped and my wife Lori brought her to the vet to have her scanned. So to make a long story short, we were able to get in contact with Jewel’s owner and reunite them. She did spend the night with us and warmed up to us and the kids, it was tough to let her go but it was nice to see that she get back with her owner.
Thank you for what you do, you bring love and warmth in peoples homes and lives you are like little heroes!!!!
Pepper FKA Cher
I just wanted to drop you a line to let you know that the dog formerly known as Cher (now “Pepper”!) is making an excellent transition to her life here with Sophie and me. I’m attaching a picture of Pepper and Sophie napping together from this afternoon. Enjoy, and thanks again!!”
Harley Quinn FKA Harley
We had our fence installed this week and Harley loves it! Even before the TLC discount, The Fence Experts quote came in WAY under the other quotes we got. They did an awesome job and it was finished and ready for Harley to run in a day! Thank you for partnering with them. Seeing her run laps around the yard was well worth the money spent and we couldn’t be happier!!!!
Pictures of current adoptable, Tommy, spurred on some discussion about breed mixes that resulted in some new pics of alumni Bella FKA Josslyn & puppy April (who is not a puppy any more) too. Here are some more pictures:
If you’re looking for a dog or puppy, we still have a lot of awesome adoptables that may just be the right future family member for you. If you want to adopt from us next Saturday as part of the clear the shelters event, please submit your application by August 10th. If you were approved to adopt from us a while ago (or something has changed since you were approved), and you think you may want to adopt during the event, please call us in advance so we can update your information and confirm all of your current pets are up to date with vaccinations.
