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 *** Milo ** Adopted
We despaired of ever finding a home for Milo as he was so wound
up and wild when he got here, we figured no one could keep up with his
energy. Months went by and no one
could deal with him although they all agreed he was very cute! But one has to have an advocate and it
came in the form of a volunteer who decided he was the dog for her. With
fingers crossed, he went off to meet her family (parents, brother and
sister) and so far so good!!!
Milo is an
interesting combination. He is part Border Collie, part Heeler and part Staffie. Milo came to us from a small, overcrowded
pound in another state. He had been
incarcerated for months and was "losing it." The staff loved him and worked hard to
get him transferred as their shelter does not have adoptions and/or people
coming to look at dogs. Milo was in
a tough spot. Fast forward...I caved
and took him here. He was on
tranquilizers and when they wore off, I contemplated putting him back on
them but decided 50 acres and two ponds would have to do their magic, and
they have. Milo is calming down nicely, there is no aggression and he plays
well with other dogs. He has a bad habit of trying to grab his leash
out of your hand and run away, playing.
He definitely needs a home where the people have energy and time to
play with him. He will chase and
ball and bring it back to you til the cows come
home. Milo weighs about 50 lbs, around 8 months
old, is neutered and heartworm negative.
Isn't he gorgeous????
Adopted *** Samantha ** Adopted
Samantha seems to be a popular name for girls these days! This little cute Shih Tzu has finally,
after several tries, settled into her new home. She has a brother who looks
like her twin and they are learning to play together. Her personality is finally coming out and
her new family loves her. We
could not be happier for this little gal.
Adopted *** Lily ** Adopted
Lily has finally settled into her new home. It seemed to take forever to find the
right home for her, but it has happened. She has a brother named Wizard a
beautiful home in the country. In this picture, Lily is telling her new
brother exactly who is boss and it is her!!!
Lily is a Pit Bull mix and will never be very large. Now she
weighs about 38 lbs and is probably full grown.
She must have had one parent who was a small/medium sized dog. Lily
is a beautiful lavender color, loves everyone and is good with kids, cats
and other dogs. She is housebroken
and energetic, but well behaved. We
think she is gorgeous!
Previously: Meet Lily, the cutest Pit Bull puppy in the
world!! She is 4 months old and
weighs about 15 lbs and will always be
small. We do not know what she is
mixed with, but probably a small breed.
She has gold eyes and a lavender coat, is spayed and working on
figuring out being housebroken. Lily
is being fostered with several other dogs and cats and loves everyone. She is adorable and gentle, but playful. We vote her cutie pie of the year!!!
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!!!
