RESCUE ME HOME RECAP



MAYZIE'S RESCUE ME HOME WEEK is technically over, but we wanted to do a recap of the adorable adoptables that we posted this week ~ just in case their furever family might not have seen  them during all the DUCK TAPE FESTIVITIES.  Plus, we want to thank Mayzie for this super terrific event that highlighted so many animals that need furever homes.  We know her Grandpa J would be so happy and proud of her!  And we're SO EXCITED for STELLA who was featured EVERY DAY last week over at Roo's.  ROO'S genius plan and dedication worked and Stella got adopted Thursday!  How cool is THAT?!  We sure hope more animals find their furever homes real soon!

So here's the rundown of the pups we featured ~ could you be their new furever home?

MONDAY - KATIE
She is a chocolate brown and tan dachshund mix, 6 years old, and a tiny 10 lbs.  Go HERE to read lots more about Katie and see more adorable pics at Katie's Forever Dachshund Rescue page!





TUESDAY - TOBY 
This is Toby. He is being fostered through Save A Dog. He's a rat terrier/Jack Russell mix (approx. 1 yr old).   Loves kids (ages 10+ would be best).  Not keen on cats.  Toby's foster mom says: He is smart, playful and very affectionate. He is great in his crate, on a leash and doesn’t bark in the house. He settles down beautifully and loves bully sticks, peanut butter kongs and his daily walks in the woods. I think he would really like to play with another small dog. He loves to chase toys in the back yard and will try to run with stuffed animals almost as big as he is, very amusing. When he gets excited he puts his ears back and crouches down and then springs up and runs in circles. He really wants to bond with his people.

WEDNESDAY - FOZZIE & SANDY
You may recognize these adorable pups from their foster mom's blog - go to Peaceful Dog to read lots more about them! 
Fozzie the Frog - what a ham, um, frog!

THURSDAY - COOPER
This totally handsome dude is COOPER and he's adoptable through New Leash on Life in Chicago - which is Miss M's (Two Pitties in the City) alma mater! he's about 1 year old, 35 pounds (but needs to gain about 5-10 pounds). We're not quite sure what breed mix he is - he has characteristics of many! Go to Cooper's NLOL page to learn more about this handsome boy.



FRIDAY - PHANTOM
Phantom is hanging out (for now) right down the street from us at our wonderful vet's, Dr. Ruth (Sun Dog Cat Moon).  She's an English Setter approx. 2 years old and has been spayed. Phantom had heartworms and our super fantastic vet has treated her and she's going on one month clear of the nasty heartworms!

*UPDATE* from Friday's post: Mom and Dad spent some quality time with Phantom on Friday.  They took her for a long walk where she got to sniff everything.  Then they took her shopping at Lowe's.  Plus, she got to go with them to their favorite outdoor restaurant!  Phantom has wonderful manners, walks well on a leash, knows sit and seemed to pick up "COME" really fast.  She's a smart girl who loves affection but is not "in your face" all the time.  She's also curious about her surroundings and pays attention to everything.  She rode in the car nicely while buckled into her harness and just laid down on the seat and snoozed after her busy day.  We don't even understand why she was given up, except that maybe she didn't hunt.  But, nevermind hunting, Phantom would make a wonderful companion on long walks or hikes - leashed, of course. After all, she is bred to hunt :)  And she would be just as happy to curl up next to you after that long walk.  Phantom would do better in a home without cats.  She hasn't really been tested around other dogs or kids yet.  She seemed totally okay with other dogs she saw at the vet.  She didn't bark once while she was with Mom & Dad for several hours.  She greeted people very sweetly and everyone that saw her loved her.

We hope you ALL find your furever homes real soon!  Good luck!

I thought for sure Phantom would work her magic on your mom and dad. She sounds like such a sweet girl! I think wherever she goes, she needs her own blog. I wish all of the dogs very good luck!

Excellent recap. It's amazing to learn why people surrender their pets. They all deserve forever homes.
