Happy Birthday Chandler

Chandler turns one today and I've been so thankful every day that he came into my life! He loves to go for walks, play fetch with his toys, and chew on bones. When he's not playing he's cuddled up on my lap. He adores people and thinks he has to be in the middle of everything that's going on, but no one minds. This little bundle of joy keeps me laughing all day long. Thank you all for rescuing him, training him, and loving on him!!!

Betty Beagle is a perfect girl!

"Hello all! Just a quick note to let you know how much my family adores our Betty Beagle. We reached out to possibly adopt another dog but through your care and tireless efforts you matched us with the perfect girl. She is just right for our busy home with young kids. Her tender heart and sweet nature (and relentless pursuit of squirrels...don't let that angel face fool you) has us all smitten. I refer potential adopters to you all continually; much love for the cherished family member and also gratitude and warm regards to your trainers who work so hard and then turn their charges over every Saturday."

Mr. Buttons

Dear Brett: I found your email address and wanted to share some beautiful memories and pics of my loved little one. The second picture is him opening his Christmas stocking this recent Christmas! He is inquisitive, energetic and loves long walks, Barking at anyone who shows up at my front door and visiting with the neighborhood dogs when he is taking me for a walk. He is indeed loved and cherished and has found a forever home. Thank you for helping me choose a good one. On the day that I adopted him, you said to me, "just hold him". He was given my heart at that time and remember you even told me that he has a black spot on his side that is in the shape of a heart. The good Lord must have picked him out as he is the gentlest natured dog that I have ever had. Hope this email finds you. Feel like emailing back if you choose. Blessings to you Brett.

His previous name was Spooky that I felt had negative connotations as that reflected fear and scary things. So I renamed him "Mr. Buttons" as he is as cute as a button. He knows it also. He still plays with his Santa Claus toy as it is one of his favorites. He is truly a joy to be with and always a perfect gentleman. His only vice is that he is selfish with his toys but loves to run after them when I throw them for him to chase. Best of all to you giving back loving companion animals to families like me.

"...Ginger is doing great."

I wanted to let you know that Ginger is doing great. she had adjusted very well to us and loves her new home. she is definitely a lap dog. its either my husbands lap or mine. it does not matter to her , .she likes to go for rides in the car. she has became very protective of her home and yard. she likes to chase the squirrels. I am so glad we found out about your program and were able to adopt Ginger. It is obvious that your
program with the help of her handler made a difference in Ginger. we have lots of pictures. when I figured out how to send them to you, I will.

Thanks again,

...the girls are just fine and getting very spoiled.

As you can see, the girls are just fine and getting very spoiled. They both love my grand daughter and she refers to them as her dogs. Dixie is my shadow so she takes over from the Zoe that I lost. She sleeps with me every night. Maddie is a tad more independent, she sleeps with me sometimes but if she is all comfy in her bed she prefers not to be disturbed. She loves chasing after my outside cats but is good to come back on command. Dixie barks at the cat and comes right back to me.
I have taken them with me to my other grand children's soccer games and everyone loves them. They have been a good advertisement for your program. Everyone is so interested when I tell them how I adopted my girls. Thank you and keep up your wonderful work.
I am so thankful that my little girls found me, they are so a part of my life. Couldn't love them more.
