Meet Jenzen!

Not much is known about Jenzen. But here’s what we do know. He’s a Giant Schnauzer, about two years old, and has a nice wavy coat. He’s good with other pets and children!

Currently, Jenzen is being cared for by Bird Dog Pet Rescue in Easley, South Carolina. They are individuals with a passion to find quality homes for stray and unwanted animals.

Meet Ginger and Chico!

Ginger and Chico are an adorable pair of tiny dogs looking for a loving home together. Ginger is a long-legged one and a half-year-old Border Terrier or Yorkie/Chihuahua-mix and Chico is a seven-year-old Chihuahua. This unlikely and sweet pair adore each other … and love people and other dogs too.

They walk well on leash, are crate-trained, house-trained, and well-behaved in the home. And, when you call them … they come flying! Ginger and Chico are healthy, neutered/spayed, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped, heartworm-tested and on preventative.

Thursday we shine the light on pet adoption!

For well over a year, we have blogged about pups in need. And from the emails we get, we hear we have had success in helping pups find their forever home, just like I did.

This Thursday is a special day – a day to shine the light on pet adoption and bring awareness of the benefits of pet adoption to a whole new level.

We will be participating in the First Annual Pet ‘Net adoption event along with many other pet bloggers. Here are the details..and be sure and check back on Thursday when we will be sharing some special adoption stories.

Meet Eragon!

Eragon is an 18 month old purebred male Afghan Hound. Friendly, active and gets along with other large breed dogs, especially female. And he likes people. His coat will be clipped, but it will soon grown back and be long and beautiful. He will require training, time, a secure yard and grooming. We prefer an experienced sight hound home. This dog has never been with children, and it is likely he will chase cats.

We met Eragon through All Breed Dog Rescue in Yucaipa, California. All Breed Dog Rescue is a non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing dogs of all breeds and finding good homes for them. They have a special interest in sighthounds – our Whippet Rescue is affiliated with the Southern California Whippet Association (SCWA), and Great Western Whippet Association. They also rescue Greyhounds and other sighthounds from local and distant shelters. They work closely with most reputable sight and scent hound groups. read more

Meet the pups!

Look what we found at the shelter that rescued me? Two little yellow lab mixes, just waiting for their furever home.

These two girls are about 9-10 weeks old. They will most likely be large dogs and just may need matching Danze faucets to keep their thirst quenched. 🙂 A fenced yard is a must. They will require lots of time and attention. Proper exercise and puppy/basic obedience classes are highly recommended so they can grow up to be good doggy citizens!! They look forward to a loving forever home ASAP!!

They are currently being cared for by the Southside Animal Shelter in Indianapolis, Indiana. This no-kill shelter rescues pups from the Indianapolis area and from the Indianapolis Animal Care and Control. read more

It’s National Adopt a Shelter Dog Month!

This month is National Adopt a Shelter Dog Month!

All over the country, there are thousands and thousands of amazing, lovable, talented, cute, big and small, fun and furry, purebred and All-American pups in shelters and rescues just waiting for their forever home.

Being a rescue dog myself, I understand what these pups are going through. They are scared and lonely, they want love and companionship – they want a family and a home they can call their own.

Shelter pups are amazing pups. I have lots of pup pals that came from shelters who are now living great lives. And some are doing wonderful things in the world.

From therapy and search and rescue work, to having great careers on the big (and small) screen and excelling in disc dog, dock dog, agility and more – pups that come from rescues and shelters can be amazing ‘best friends’. They just need a chance. read more

Meet Micah!

Micah is around 3 1/2 months old and weighs aroun 7 lbs. We were told he was a affenpinscher but we are guessing that he might also have some schanuzer in him given his size. Regardless, he is a very sweet, attentive little guy who’s eyes could melt any heart.

He is all puppy and still learning about housebreaking. He loves to play with the other dogs in his foster home and would love to play with the cat (if only the cat would let him!). He is not hyper and rarely makes a noise but he is active and likes to play.

He is also fascinated by the TV and enjoys winding down at night on your lap while you are watching programs. He would make a great family dog (given his size, older kids would be best) or a companion for another dog in the home. read more

Best Friends Puppy-Store-Free LA campaign!

Best Friends Animal Society has launched a campaign called “A Puppy-Store-Free LA,” the first leg of a national campaign…”A Puppy-Store-Free USA”…to stop pet stores from selling puppy mill puppies.

They say…

In Los Angeles alone, thousands of dogs are killed in shelters each year while hundreds of stores sell purebred puppies, sourced from puppy mills to an uninformed public. Many people are unaware that nationwide, 25 percent of dogs in shelters are purebreds.

They asked folks to create a video that would educate the public on Puppy Store puppies, and where they come from. And now they have chosen three of their favorites. Vote for your favorite and help in the effort to stop puppy mills. read more
