We loving hearing about our dogs in new homes!



Melody was adopted!

Update October 2015:

Thank you so much for this sweet girl!  We have fallen hopelessly in love with her. She is such a good cuddler! She is doing very well. Her wild side did come out last night. She goes a bit nuts running around and trying to bite everything in sight, playfully. We are staying consistent with her and teaching her what her boundaries are. I think part of the problem is she has so much pent up energy. We take her for lots of walks throughout the day but we are being careful not to run her hard so she doesn't rip her stitches. There has already been an improvement with "sit" and "off".  She eats three small meals a day and is using the bathroom normally. She sleeps great at night. I take her out once in the middle of the night. She has not had any accidents yet. She was in her cage about three hours while we were at church last night and she did great.
Monday we have an appointment at Middletown Vet for her first visit and to have her stitches removed.
She is exhausting, but she is a sweetheart, though.  :) We are working with her in small sessions numerous times a day to improve her manners. She is smart so I know she will learn quickly. Melody loved being brushed.
Elizabeth does a lot of her school work at a computer and Melody just sits in there with her and watches or plays with her toys. It's cute.
She plays with her toys and sleeps in some of the craziest positions. She cracks us up.

Thank you and all the other volunteers for all the work you do for these animals. We have been praying for just the right dog since the day our Chloe passed away. Melody is definitely a perfect answer to our prayers.

Carly was adopted!

Update September 2015:

Carly got out of the car when we got home and walked in the house, sniffed around and said this is okay.  She has been so good. Comes when called, calm, and she and Peggy Sue are having a good time.  No problem with feeding next to each other and chasing tennis balls in back yard.  She is perfect for us.  I have an appointment with our Vet on Thur. to give them all the paper work and to meet her.  I hope Babe is doing ok with treatment.  Thank you for guiding us to Carly.  Keep up your wonderful mission.
