NC - Pics from Teresa

Tiny

Hi Mag. Here's some of my latest pictures. The first one is my foster Tiny the day she was spayed. She was just pitiful! Of course anything she wanted she got including snuggling up in the big blanket. I think it made her feel a little bit better. The second picture is of the whole crew Mateo, Bernie & Tiny waiting to go to bed.

Thanks

Miller playing

Here's a pic of my husband asleep on the chair with former foster Miller playing "top dog." Miller was adopted by Mark H. and his family in Virginia a few weeks ago.

Annie and her new family

Sun, 2 Feb 2003 11:26:35 -0500 - from Elaine

Annie and family

These dogs belong to Rose and her husband in Sanford, NC. They adopted Picabo from me, whom they renamed Annie. Annie is the tiny minpin on the left with her tongue hanging out the side. She was a puppymill pup and has no teeth. She is a bundle of energy even at 8+ years.

Thanks. --Elaine

Jessie's Story

Fri, 20 Jun 2003 14:26:22 -0400 - from Rene

Jessie

In January I went to pick up my first fosters. A male and a female who were NC puppy mill rescues. I drove about 4 hours to pick up these two. It was suppose to be three, but one of the female's babies didn't make it. When I picked them up I brought the female to the crate in the car first. I called her Jessie. She was frozen with fear. I went back and got the male, James, who was barking to let me know he didn't want to be left behind. The two were emaciated and ate and drank in spurts the whole way back home. I talked to them and tried to let them know I was a friend. It was frustrating over the next week and no one at home got any sleep. James stayed by my side continuously and Jessie was very meek. James was fostered out, which I will always regret, because we didn't think Jessie was going to improve with his possessiveness. Since she needed the most TLC, we kept her here. She captured the hearts of my family right away. As she began to put on weight, the color of her coat began to shine and she gained more confidence with her new family. There was just no way we could ever part with this young lady who had such heart. She has now claimed her place in this home. It's been 6 months and she is still learning new ways to show affection and ways to play and run and lay around outside in the grass. IMPS calls her a survivor. To us, Jessie is a miracle. She has changed our lives forever. I believe we have changed her life as well.

Blind minpin Dobie

Wed, 17 Dec 2003 19:38:48 -0500 - from Peggy

Dobie

Petie, I don't know if you remember last year in December I pulled a 10 y/o blind minpin from McDowell County Animal Control. She was seized in a puppy mill raid and was blind from genetic cataracts. I paid her vetting (almost $500) and kept her. I just wanted you to see the attached picture which was made one year later. Last Saturday, the Carolina volunteers and I marched in a Christmas parade so we could give out adoption fliers and I took her along. Afterward, we went to Melinda M's house for lunch and she shot this picture of Dobie on the big dog bed next to the wood stove. You can see how happy Dobie is one year post mill bust. Dobie is a wonderful dog who adjusted overnight to home life, reliably potty trained in 3 weeks, and very laid back, gets along with everybody. She is amazingly adept at moving around, even in a strange place. You can tell from her ears she could almost fly with them. I just had to share this picture with you as I am so proud of my blind Dobie. I was worried about whether or not to try to have the cataracts removed, and you assured me that blind dogs adjust amazingly well. Such a good dog and with no after effects of 10 years in a mill having puppies (except her skin is stretched a few sizes too big from the pregnancies!).

Priscilla's Minpins

Mon, 14 Feb 2005 11:53:09 -0500 - from Priscilla

Lolly

Lolly was the first minpin we adopted. She became a member of our family in June, 2004. She is nine but behaves more like a puppy. She is alpha but is going through some rank reduction exercises. She is a sweetie and loves affection.

Taz

Taz became a Rogers in September of 2004. He is two and a half and a tiny fellow. Cute, yes, but constantly bouncing. Those uncropped ears are almost as large as his head. He is learning that to be loved and cuddled is not all bad.

Beau

Beau is the newest member of our family. He is nine but still plays like a puppy. His favorite thing is to roughhouse and then grin showing all teeth. This action appears to be spontaneous. He is a joy to have in our family.

Beau

Our grinning Beau!

Some pics of Max

Tue, 7 Feb 2006 19:14:57 EST - from Kevin

Max, Heidie

Just writing to send some pics of Max.

We adopted him last fall from your site. Max is doing great, and has really gotten along with our other min pin, Heidie. They both sleep together in the bed, and Max is really protective over us and the house. We could not be happier with him. He recently had his yearly checkup and is doing great.

Hudson's Success Story

Wed, 20 May 2009 15:04:23 -0700 (PDT) - from Brandy

Hudson

Hudson is doing great! I assure you he is happy and well loved. He loves his 2 mile walk each morning.

You would be surprised at how simple the adjusting has been so far. Guess we three have fallen in love. We are allowing plenty of time for the adjustment with our cat Foxy - then we will be a foursome in love. They both are curious and we allow nose to nose contact when we are holding them. Right now they know each other and they look across the room at each other but we aren't rushing their exchange. It will unfold naturally.

Oh - Hudson has no food issues but then he doesn't have to share his feast with other dogs. He eats right in the kitchen with us and takes his healthy treats right out of our hands.

He loves our drives. Believe me - he is thriving with all the attention he is receiving. He especially loves his lap time which actually is quite extensive.

We took him to our vet on Tuesday. He checked him from his nose to the tip of his tail - all was well.

I am very impressed with your rescue organization and the wonderful caring people I have encountered during the process.

Blessings,

Ruth & Jim

Hudson Hudson
