Here are the original stories and adoption
information about those dogs who came to us as a result of abuse or
abandonment, and have been placed in permanent homes during 2015.

Adopted *** Barkley ** Adopted
Barkley was a
challenge, for sure. He just wasn't
getting adopted although he was gorgeous and friendly. However, the bigger the dog, the harder it
is to find a home for them. My
neighbor was helping and when she met a man who said he and his family were
looking for a big dog, she said she knew just who would be perfect! He is settled in with kids and his canine
companion and so far, it is all good!!!
Barkley is a Great Pyrenees mix (maybe some Anatolian). He weighs about 70 lbs,
and is neutered, 4-5 years old, heartworm negative, and up to date on
shots. He has been living in the
woods for a month or so and his owner made no attempt to find him. He was rescued and brought here and we
have some information, but not all. A video shows him sniffing a cat,
but not interested. He is ok with
other dogs but is protective behind a fence. He is leash trained, sits on command,
gentle with people and extremely well behaved in the house as he does
not chew up anything. Not sure on housebreaking but is very close. All in all, he is a great dog.
Adopted *** Alfie (now known as Nash) ** Adopted
Alfie was found rummaging around a dumpster at an elementary
school and brought to us. He was
very thin and had a bad cut on his eye. Apparently, no one was looking
for him so we went ahead and got all of his medical needs
taken care of. He was standoffish at
first and hard to catch, but slowly began warming up. A great family with three kids came to
meet him and decided; 1) he was going to their home, and 2) his new name
would be Nash!! So Nash is now
happily snuggled in with his new family!
Alfie is a 5 month old Shepherd mix of some sort!! He is so adorable and we just love
him! He weighs about 40 lbs, is neutered and not quite housebroken yet. No news on cats, as we do not have
any. Alfie loves to play with all of
the other dogs and has lots of energy.
He was hanging out around a dumpster for several days, was very
thin, and no one ever claimed him.
This cutie will make someone such a fun pet.
Adopted *** Tanner ** Adopted
Tanner came back
to us after a year because his owner lost her house. We loved him once again and felt he would
get adopted so fast. But time went
on and he did not...we could not figure it out. He was beautiful and sweet, so we
just enjoyed him while he was here. Finally,
a family from Nebraska applied and sent a picture of their Rottie mix who they had recently lost. He looked so much like Tanner! They came to pick him up and off they
went to his new home. Here are two
pictures and all news is great news. They love him!
Tanner is a year old Rottweiler/Lab mix. He is quickly becoming
our favorite dog. Tanner is a year
old, weighs about 50 lbs and is housebroken. He loves kids and all dogs and plays
energetically, but appropriately with other dogs. He loves the water and running and
playing, but settles down perfectly in the house. Most evenings we find him curled up
asleep on the sofa or recliner. He
had beautiful, soulful eyes...how could any family resist him?
Previously: Tanner is just a year and a half old and probably
part Rottweiler/Lab. He is gentle with kids and submissive with other dogs.
However, he cannot be around chickens! He weighs around 50 lbs and is neutered but owner says he is not totally
housebroken. Tanner's owner is going through a divorce and unable to keep
him, but he deserves a great and permanent home!!
Adopted *** Uber ** Adopted
Uber had a tough
go for a while. We were not sure
anyone would want him with a fractured jaw.
But it has not slowed him down and one of my former students and her
family have adopted him and adore him.
We get lots of pictures of him dressed up in a variety of new
clothes. Plus, he has multiple
Uber is a 6 year
old double dapple, male Dachshund. Gentle and loving disposition
Adopted *** Zelda ** Adopted
Zelda has gone off with a couple who recently lost their Boxer
to old age, and decided to wait to get another dog. However their house was
lonely and when they saw Zelda's picture, they loved her. So she is now in her new home and doing
well. During our last visit she told me she wanted to stay there forever!
Zelda is a 2 1/2
year old purebred female Boxer. She
is petite and has a wonderful disposition
Adopted *** Angie and Sasha ** Adopted
When I got a
call from a family member that their relatives were moving into assisted
living, they asked if we could take the three dogs left behind. Jethro (see previous page), Sasha and
Angie were facing an uncertain future, for sure. We moved them here and settled them into
the routine of our daily life.
However, a kind woman who had met them at the vet called and
wanted to adopt two of these cuties, so Angie and Sasha were off to their
new home. When I delivered them I
just knew this was the perfect home with a backyard and porch to play on.
So far the news is good!
Adopted *** Molly ** Adopted
Molly and Valentine (see previous page) arrived together after
being dumped in the country. Molly was the more timid of the two and
relied on Val for protection. Since
it was unlikely anyone would adopt them both we held out for a home with
another dog for the two girls. Molly now has a big sister who looks after
her and will teach her to be a good dog!!!
