Amazing Angie

Another update on a rescued Dane. We love the updates and this video is special! Enjoy!

“This is Marsha Hagler. It’s been a while since I’ve contacted you. You were kind enough to allow me to adopt my amazing Angie on 9-19-2014. I can’t possibly thank you enough, for bringing this amazing dog into my life! In celebration of our upcoming 6th anniversary next month, I thought I would send you an update.

I think I already told you that in January 2015, Angie passed her Canine Good Citizen Test. Well, she has continued to impress everyone she meets with her excellent manners, always being welcomed back to motels, campgrounds and outside cafes.

Angie is wonderful at keeping my property free of squirrels and lizards! She also excels at keeping my mule calm, by leading the way on mountain trails, when I go riding.

I’m sending you a link to a video on Google photos, that shows Angie on a tiny bit of our daily walk/run. It’s just a little over 1.5 minutes; I hope you can watch it. It’s best with the volume up.

Angie runs for the sheer joy of running!”

Forever thankful,

Marsha

PS: I hope this works; I’m not very good with computers!

Chloe Update

Chloe Update

We got this note and video from Chloe’s parents. We are glad Chloe is a “keeper”. The last Dane they adopted from us just did not work out, he was returned (and found a wonderful home) and they waited till a new Dane came in and scooped her up. Here is what Doug wrote to us about his girl:

“Hope all is going ok with you and at the rescue. I can’t believe it’s been a year! Chloes doing great, she ended up being the perfect pup. She and Logan are like to two peas in a pod and she tolerates my sisters 5 month old Aussie puppy with grace! Here’s a little video of year 1 with Chloe. Stay well! ”

Whiskey In His New Home

Whiskey In His New Home

Thanks to Maggie for stepping in and helping not only Whiskey but the Rescue. Whiskey was surrendered to us when everything was closed down due to the pandemic. She had the experience and was set up to take him in as a foster child before we could get him vetted. You can see by the photos Whiskey is now healed, healthy and happy as part of Maggie’s family.

Here’s what Maggie wrote:

“We are doing well! Everyone loves him. He is gaining weight and getting his spunk back.”

A “Law/Chester” Update

A “Law/Chester” Update

Chester’s (formerly Law) owner sent us this nice email on her experience with the big boy so far. We appreciate when people give a new dog time to settle in, realizing all new additions don’t go smoothly right away.

“He is so much work but so much love. Each day he is learning more. He is very smart and quite bonded with me already. I have to be on him for trying to keep Remi away from me. I have set strict boundaries for him to start. Then as time goes by I will give him more privileges. He started testing his boundaries immediately and I have to be very consistent. He is very smart. He is also use to doing whatever he pleases. He is very good at wanting to please but like a toddler, he keeps pushing the envelope!

Thank you so much for all your confidence in me and for choosing him to be part of our family. He is so happy and has such an exuberance for life. He is learning and seeing things for the first time, and is just so excited about everything. He is going to be such a good boy when he learns everything . We love him very much!”

Doug and Peggy Have A New Dane!

Doug and Peggy Have A New Dane!

Our wonderful photography team, Doug and Peggy Peterson, just adopted a new girl! Her original owner contacted us to help them find Lola a new home, and Doug and Peggy offered to do foster care, which we now term a “foster fail”. Lola is now Lola Peterson. Doug and Peggy had lost two very senior Danes recently {Mr. Sampson and Lulu) and just could not deal with being Dane-less. Here is what Peggy wrote to us:

“Well, we feel like we hit the jackpot with Lola! She is practically perfect, and is really settling in now that it’s been a full week. We’ve taken her to the lake a few times, where she’s met people and other dogs, and while she started out barking, she ended up making friends. On a long neighborhood walk, she never barked at dogs or people. She loves riding in the car, has never had an accident in the house, and is generally sweet and gentle. Her skittishness has really dissipated and she’s more confident every day. We love watching a Great Dane with happy feet race through our yard! She was obviously well-loved and cared for by her first owners. There’s no way we would give her up! Thanks for asking us to foster her, it was perfect timing for us and she’s the perfect dog.”
