Missy – photos of her wonderful life

March 14thwwas Missy’s “Gotcha Day” Elaina is a long time rescue dog owner and friend to our organization. Missy Mittens took some time to settle in, but Elaina persrvered and made it work. she never gave on her M and M.

Here is what her great owner Elaina Hernandez wrote to us on her Gotcha Day:

“2 years ago I picked her (Missy Mittens) up from the Rescue Kennels.

In the past 2 years with us Missy has completed and passed 2 times her Canine Good Citizen (we test yearly to keep up)
She still enjoys fungility classes and mastered the tunnel. We still go on sundays to our Continuing good manners classes.

She continues to go to doggy daycare with her hairy little brother and WITHOUT him to help with her separation anxiety. She also stays home once a week at home with out her little hairy brother to help with her separation anxiety and this has helped. And a few meds to help sometimes but in the past 3 months we’ve been able to leave her with either me or her dad without any meds and with Ricky gone. Shes coming along nicely but we still are constantly working either anxiety

Shes made lots of friends humans and doggies. I love seeing her get excited when she see them.
She celebrated her 4th Birthday November 11
She got to go to her dad’s favorite place.. south lake tahoe for the first time and she loved people watching and getting pets from strangers

Shes survived her dad having a stroke and our house remodel.

Shes settled nicely in her new forever home we love her so much!
Thank you for letting me adopt this bug headed girl!”

Christmas Greeting from Wyatt’s Parents!

Christmas Greeting from Wyatt’s Parents!

This is such a sweet greeting from the Moraes family! I just found it in my spam folder, so I apologize for the late posting. Joe and Kathy went and picked up Wyatt after work one day when I called them to say his owner has an emergency situation and Wyatt was in danger and if he wasn’t moved out of her home, she feared for him. So of course, Joe got off work early and he and Kathy drove to pick up this skinny boy. Lucky for him they did, because of course they kept him! I think if Kathy found a wildebeast on the road who needed help, he would also be living with them!! Her heart knows no bounds.

Warmest of Holiday Regards to all @ Great Dane Rescue of Northern California from the Moraes family 🐶🐱🐱🐱

Teddy was adopted by a woman whose sister had adopted previously. So Teddy went to a family with another Dane “Kylo” waiting to show him the ropes. They are a matching set.
