s00n2bemrsb:  Awww!!! This looks like my sweet pittie girl, Hazel! She had horrible demo when I adopted her, and she still has lots of issues with allergies, but she is the love of my life! She also came in with a deformed foot, so her leg was amputated shortly after I adopted her. I love her so much!

What a sweetheart! Rescues are the best. one of my kitties had a scheduled euthanasia date and a resuce found her and got her, her mom, and her littermates out of that shelter and brought them back to their rescue. SHe was going to be put down because she was a tuxedo cat. No other reasons she was healthy but they thought no one would want her because of her coloring. Terrible… I could not imagine my life without her <3

s00n2bemrsb:  Your little Annie is so cute! I have 2 resuces, my first bear was picked up from the street when he was about 3-4 weeks old. He sat in the pound for over 3 months before I found him and made him mine. He didnt really have anything wrong with him, just a little kennel cough and the “black dog” curse. 

My second resuce, Berklei, is similar to your Annie. She had a home but she got mange, so bad she lost all of her hair, the family never took her for treatment and just let her suffer till it was to late. They surendered her to the vet and she was there for 6 months healing before she could be considered for adoption. Once she was considered she was adopted 3 times and returned each time for being to much and for wanting to play with cats who didnt want to play. We adopted her and ever since she and Bear have been side by side, that is till she escapes and he cant fit out the hole she dug. 

I love them both very much and each dog I ever had growing up was a resuce, my Future Mother-In-Law & Future Father-In-Law both resuced a pit that my Fiance and I watched being trown from a truck going atleast 40mph. But that little pit, Kitty is the best ever and super spoiled now and in a great home. I couldnt imagine my life without resuces, they make me complete.

What a beautiful story!!  Thank you for taking in and giving her the life she deserves.  We just found out our most recent rescue his heartworm positive.  If you have any advice on that, I’d love to hear it.  We just started her antibiotics last week and she goes in for her first injection next month.  I need to get a picture of her on my computer =)



This was Storm.  Flat coat retriever and best dog ever.  She was my first rescue.  I was watching my ex’s band play in a garage.  She was just a puppy and she crawled up into my lap and decided I was hers.  I could feel all of the ticks and flea bites.  I was horrified.  She was eating adult dog food, her mom refused to nurse her, the guy who owned her just couldn’t care less but refused to let me take her.  I went back a few nights later and stole her.  (He found out and we worked it out)

I took her home, put tick medicine on her, and started pulling ticks off of her.  I pulled off 200 before I stopped counting.  She was anemic and had Lyme disease.  She hadn’t been receiving proper nutrition, so her knees didn’t develop right.  They would just pop out of socket and we had to put them back in.  I felt she was too young to have to live like that, so we opted to have both of her knees reconstructed when she was 9 months old.  Over the years she had numerous problems with skin rashes and allegies to just about everything.  We had her on allergy injections and prescription foods.  She developed a large tumor on the roof of her mouth.  We had it removed and did multiple rounds of chemotherapy.  She was good for about 1-1/2 years after the tumor was removed, but ultimately developed an autoimmune disorder she could not beat and passed last year at 8 years of age. 

Despite all of her health problems, I could not have asked for a better dog.  She was so mild mannered, but so full energy. 

This is Jackson my second rescue.  He was shot in the head and back and survived.  I can’t fathom why someone would have done that.  Knock on wood, he has been without health problems.  He has had behavioral problems, but has come so far with those.  He is by far the funniest dog I have ever met, he makes me laugh every day.

Oooh_snap:  I have never seen another flat coat! Aw, she was so beautiful and you did so much for her. So sad she had to go too soon. My (ex) hubby and I rescued this flat coat (mix- I think). He has him now, but I do see him from time to time. He IS the best, sweetest, mild mannered, energetic dog!

And here are my rescues. No super sad stories, though the beagle in the upper right corner was neglected and left outside with no human contact 24/7. We had to say goodbye to her awhile ago. :o) The other 3 I don’t know much about their histories.
