At TLC, our goal’s to not just find a home for our dogs but to make the best all-around match between the dog and our adopters. Sometimes, we’re sure an applicant would be a great pet parent but not the right fit for the dog they’ve applied for and, sometimes, the adopter is just the pyr-fect fit. Luckily our Great Pyrenees pup Spuddy, found a fabulous family that already includes a brother who looks just like him (and a bunch of kids too)!
He’s not the only one the matchmaker worked her magic on this week as Brooke & Dayla were also adopted this week.
It was a great week for updates, some of which included a whole family’s worth as litter mates got in touch with one another
Hazel Grace FKA Daisy
“TLC alum Hazel Grace (FKA Daisy) loves to snuggle w/ her favorite teen! At almost 9 months she is as tall and long as her fursister, Sofie (who is a lab, beagle, blue heeler & 53 lbs), but has kept her smaller frame and currently tops out at about 30 lbs”
“Mishka is doing great and fitting in well with all members of the family. She has taking over our hearts, as well as our bed and our couch. She and Maggie get along well, although Maggie isn’t much of a playmate-mainly because she doesn’t know she is a dog. However, Mishka has play dates at daycare every week, which she really enjoys and they always tell us she is the so well behaved. Thanks for reaching out. I’ll keep you updated going forward.“
“We’re doing great! Cinnamon is such a sweet girl and a great fit for our family! She is such a pleaser, too—she always wants to give us her paw or try to do a trick . . . . . for treats, of course! LOL! We all love her very much and are truly grateful to have found each other. Please let your team know we’re doing great, and thanks to you all!”
Bleys FKA Brad
“He’s now 11 months old!”
Coal FKA McDaniel (Rachel’s pup)
“We made the best decision ever to adopt from your organization last Spring and we wanted to share a few pictures. His name is Coal now (I think he was McDaniel). He is super cuddly and so well behaved. He rings the bells when he has to potty and is never, ever grumpy. For being born down south, he LOVES the snow and has been having the best time the last few days playing outside in this blizzard, it’s hard to get him back in the house. He gets along with both of his brothers, who have definitely accepted him as part of their pack. We love him so much and he completely brightens our days!
We really hope that his mother and siblings have found their furever homes and are loving their new lives!
Thank you for having an amazing organization! “
Murphy FKA Reese celebrated her 1st adoptiversary
“The anniversary is actually on Friday, St Patrick’s Day. That’s why we renamed her Murphy!
Murphy is a joy, and a piece of work. She’s never seen a person or dog that she doesn’t want to go up to and greet (which gets her into trouble sometimes). She keeps my 87 year old mother in law entertained while we are out.
Turns out she loves the ocean and hates the cold and snow (who knew…a Bernese mountain dog/St Bernard mix…).
Much thanks to your great organization.“
Sadie FKA Shay
“Sadie (formerly Shay) is doing great, and has been a wonderful addition to our family. She’s attending (older) puppy classes and is a very good student, and she has been terrific for Emmie, our puppy mill rescue bitch. She is growing into a smart, sweet, beautiful dog, and we’re very, very happy to have her in our family. I must admit I’m not used to hound mixes (our last dogs were purebred herders), but we’re adjusting to the “squirrel!!!!!” reaction and other situations where her nose and prey drive lead the way.“
Lila FKA Paula
“Lila is doing great. We all love her so much, she is a perfect fit for our family.
She really enjoys the snow, and had a great time playing with the kids yesterday outside.
Roxie FKA Lois
“Roxie (formerly known as Lois) has settled in wonderfully!! We have been very busy reading up on how to train her as well as acclimating her to our cat. Roxie has also been meeting the neighbors and their owners. She wants to love and play with everyone she meets. Up until this crazy blizzard we had been going for walks around the neighborhood, she is a champ on the leash and loves exploring. She does love the snow and has had a ball playing with our neighbor Bella (a Bernese Mt. Dog) in it. Thank you so much for letting Roxie complete our family. Already can’t remember what life was like before her love and kisses❤”
“Benson is settling in well and seems very comfortable here (we are keeping his name). We have an appointment with the vet for Friday to bring him in for a preliminary check-up. We are calling tomorrow about setting up training for Benson. He will need some basic training and I’m sure they can help with that.
Thanks so much for helping us find this wonderful dog to join our family.”
Beasley FKA Paul
We decided to change Paul’s name to Beasley. He is doing well. Still getting used to our house & routine. We have an appointment set up at our vet for the 21st. That was the quickest we could get him in. I have contacted Deb to set up training for him. Deb the adoption counselor checked his microchip before we left.”
Jody FKA Jasper
“I figured it was time for an update on Jody/Jasper. He’s getting so big! He loves the snow a little too much. He is getting along really well with Penny and is a very good boy.”
Hannah (bully mix mom to Marlene, May & Jaxon FKA Vince)
“Hannah is doing well and has fit right in with our family. She looks forward to her morning rides with Dad to drop my daughter off at school and there’s always a competition at night between my kids to see who she is going to sleep with! She is very affectionate and loved playing with the kids in all the snow this past week. We cannot make the May 6th event as my daughter receives her 1st Communion that day but I’ll see about joining the mailing list for future events.
Hope all is well with the rescue! You all do such amazing work finding just the right homes for those who need one. “
“it’s hard to believe we’ve had Quinn for a little over a year now! He has been such a great addition and we are completely obsessed with him. Quinn is such a well behaved boy and he loves other dogs (we might need to get him a friend in the future). He also loves naps in the sun, going on runs and hikes with us, walking on the beach and hogging the bed at night. ”
“Hi there. Walter is adjusting wonderfully. He had his neutering and shots on Monday. Our family vet is going to check him out today. He is the sweetest.“
Charli FKA Wayla
“Wayla now Charli is perfect!!! We are loving every second of her being here. She is doing great and having no accidents in her crate! She also has learned paw and lay down on command! She has been to the vet and everything seems great. Thank you for allowing us to make her a member of our family! Everyone loves her!”
Avery & the dwarf litter got in touch after hearing Bailey FKA Dopey’s DNA results
“My wife and I are the proud and lucky owners of your pups’ mother. We adopted Avery on January 15th, just 2 months ago, and she wasted no time in becoming an integral part of our household. Avery is the sweetest dog we’ve ever known; she doesn’t have a mean bone in her body.
I’m most appreciative of the DNA breakdown. Our vet said that Avery has a Lab base with some hound mixed in. I don’t doubt the hound part as she’s already treed a raccoon in the woods behind our house. No, we don’t certainly don’t ever let her run free, but she loves to take walks in the woods, exploring every scent she finds.
I hope your pups inherit their mom’s disposition. A better dog we could never find.”
Bailey FKA Dopey (Avery’s pup)
“I just wanted to let someone at TLC know that I had Bailey’s DNA tested. Bailey is from Avery’s litter of 7 lab mix puppies. I adopted Bailey from TLC this past January 11th. He and his litter mates were thought to be lab/possibly mastiff mix or some other large breed. Well, DNA shows no mastiff, but some interesting other breeds. Please feel free to share with the families of Bailey/Dopey’s litter mates.”
Celly FKA Grumpy
“He is a registered service dog. We just took him to the vet for his series of vaccinations and he weighs 54 lbs.
He is a great dog. I’m so glad to hear from you . I would definitely like to keep in touch and possible let the dogs get together.”
Izzy FKA Doc
“My vet is good! He also thought no mastiff – more lab/retriever.
We adopted the female pup doc (renamed Izzy) . She is a wonderful puppy – we just love her to pieces!!!! “
Tyson FKA Bashful
Bashful’s new name is Tyson.
Gunner FKA Sneezy
T pups 1st birthday
Ava Rose FKA Tallulah
Hope all is well. Just a few minutes left of the T Litter’s First Birthday and I wanted to wish them all a happy birthday from Ava Rose (formerly known as Tallulah). She had a wonderful weekend and sends her kisses to her siblings.
We hope all is well 🐶🐶”
Tucker FKA Teegan
“HAPPY BIRTHDAY to the most precious black dogs we know…
Thanks so much for reaching out…Tucker formerly Teegan had a good day. He got a new toy.Which he loves. The picture of him laying down was after hours of play with his gift.
We need to plan a day to reunite for a bit and see them all together again.
Everyone take care and stay warm in the coming days.”
Phoebe FKA Trudy
“Phoebe is our little ball of energy! Yesterday she enjoyed her favorite treat Cheerios and some peanut butter!
These are picture of her this week it’s tough to get her still enough to take a picture!”
Happy First Birthday P-litter!
Parker FKA Peaches
This weekend is the first birthday of the P Pups! As the Mommy of Parker, formerly Peaches, I wanted to let you know how things are going. Parker is 7 pounds now. She has 2 sisters Tia, 14 and Zoe, 8. They all get along very nicely but I still can’t get a picture of all 3 of them together! Parker is not like her sisters, she finds and gets into things they never even thought of, she is a very busy and vocal little girl. She let’s you know that she needs something if she sees a tough she can’t reach she cries and “talks” she is so funny. When her Daddy comes home she cries until he gets upstairs then he picks her up and he gets lots of kisses sometimes she is so excited she bites his nose! We are so happy to have our littlest girl. Thank you
Dani FKA Pip
“June 12th 2016…..A day I will never forget. This little peanut was dropped off along with her sister Paris for adoption appointments. Paris got adopted, “Pip” did not….One of the things that Jay and I both agreed on was that we would NOT adopt a puppy. We were happy with the older, dogs…..But Pip changed everything. She entered into our home and hearts like a tornado. So while I’ve had her since June, her actual birthday is today, March 19th. I can’t thank Cj Anderson and Leslie Thornbury McElveen for bottle feeding Pip and her siblings, and getting them healthy enough to travel to TLC. Dani “Pip” Robinson became a part of the Robinson family in June and has brought so much joy into our lives. She makes me smile every single day. Her crazy antics, her loving hugs in the morning before she’s awake and ready to conquer the world. She gives Sashi and Ned a run for their biscuits, she loves letting Poppie give her kisses all over, and she’s found a new best friend in Taz. Thank you To Love a Canine Rescue, Inc. for allowing me to adopt this little Pipper into our home. Today, she will be spoiled (even more than usual) as we celebrate her one year Birthday.”
Peanut FKA Paco
“We are so blessed to have these amazing pups! It sounds (and looks) like Dani and Peanut are VERY similar!! Peanut wishes his sister a happy 1st birthday 🎉 🎉”
Lola FKA Beatrice
“Our “pup” Lola is doing amazing! She is quite a big girl now, weighing almost 70lbs! She is just a pleasure. She has the most gentle temperament but is also playful. She loves the outdoors. She is great with kids and is my little sidekick, she follows me from room to room all day. I’ve often wondered how her siblings are doing and what they look like.”
Utley FKA Bentley
“Utley is doing great! He has got such an amazing personality! He loves giving hugs and cuddling! At his last weight check at the end of January, he was a beast at 65 lbs!! He has definitely grown like a weed, but thinks he is still a wee little 10 pound puppy! His best friend is our cat!! It’s so sweet to see a dog of his size be so gentle with a 7 pound cat. They even share a crate together. Giz loves to curl up in Utley fluffy fur and the two of them nap. Utley loves getting baths and will patiently wait his turn whenever he hears the bath water turn on. We’ve even had a surprise visitor in the shower on many occasions! We can’t remember what life was like before him and can’t imagine a life without him! We start puppy class on Thursday!! Can’t wait”
Abigail FKA Bessie
“She is just the funniest pup every – so much personality! She hasn’t stopped growing and is bigger than our biggest English Pointer lol. Thank you all for what you do. “
We also had the opportunity to spend a little quality time with Hazel FKA Ramsee & Luna FKA Millie, as well as a visit from Ana FKA Analea!
