Dexter on the Trampoline

Dexter on the Trampoline

Thanks to Laurie for this happy update on Dexter. We knew he fell in love with her girl dog, Rebel, but were shocked that he also loves the trampoline!

Dex is doing really great,  He loves Rebel :). He has his routine and really is adjusted well so far . He loves his car rides !  Dex is loving Daycare he has been there a full week now and has a few buddies he hangs with. The first day I was worried but after an hour or so he just went into the packs and played all day. He is pooped when I pick them both up and he sleeps most of the time when we get home . We have integrated his food and he likes it. He really is a big love bug. He occasionally still barks at people out the car window but not much. 

Goose & Harley

An update from Jill on her recent adoption of Goose:
He’s doing much better! Routine is definitely a life-saver. 🙂 He sleeps on the floor next to Harley in our room and visits my daughter’s room during the day. He loves his morning walks and eats immediately now. He is still cautious around my husband and son, but he’s coming around. He would rather play with humans than Harley, but I’m assuming that will just take more time. 

Lucy and Lily

Two years ago, Lucy was a foster puppy turned adoption after she completely stole the hearts of all the members of her foster family.

Early, we could tell Lucy and Lily would be good friends.

Little did we know they would become BEST friends.

We are forever grateful to Lucy’s original owner, who obviously loved her a great deal, for surrendering her so she could become a member of our family.  We all adore her and to be quite honest, she runs our place 🙂


Shawnee & Titan

Shawnee & Titan are definitely “bed buds”

Jax and Jonnie

Our special thanks to Jonnie who stepped up to help with a surrender named Doc. She took him into her home until we were able to get him vetted. He is now vaccinated & neutered and found his forever home with Jonnie. Here’s what she shared.

Hello Karen and Colleen. I just wanted to give you an update on Doc who we now have decided to call Jax. He is doing well. We enjoy him so much. When I get off work I can’t wait to see him and like wise. He is bonding well with the family and when my grandson visits he is very gentle ( excited but gentle) he’s better with potting but we are still working on it. We go for walks on the trail and he is doing great! So much less pulling. In fact the last walk he didn’t pull at all! He makes me laugh all of the time. I appreciate you for working with us to find this guy! Thank you so much.

Nicholas and Elliot

An update on Nicholas, who was adopted in 2020.

Nicholas…has become my mom’s best friend. He follows her everywhere and likes to jump up on her, which is a funny sight considering he is so tall. We think he probably has grown even more since we got him. He has been the best thing that has happened to my family since quarantine. Thank you so much for trusting us with him!! I am sorry we have not been more responsive, but I just wanted to let you know he is safe and SO happy. He and Elliot (together in photo) get along so well.

Sabrina’s fabulous family

Sabrina’s fabulous family

We received this wonderful note from Sabrina’s new family. All our thanks to Abe and Pritham (and Piper and Zack 🙂 for providing Sabrina such a fantastic new home!

Happy New Year!

Just wanted to let you know how well Sabrina is doing and send along a few photos. She gets along great with the other dogs; she loves patrolling and barking at things in the street with Piper the Cocker Spaniel and snuggling up with Zach the Husky. Her separation anxiety has also pretty much gone away, which I think is the result of her close bond with the other two. She’s the sweetest girl and we’re so thrilled she joined our family. We love her so much!

Thanks again for everything you do to rescue Great Danes!
