RESCUING ROVER: Meet Lucy, Scruffy and Bud

as told by Patty Milliron

An Adorable Pack of Rescues!

Lucy, at far left, is a foster we kept. She was picked up by the pound in heat, and was heart worm positive.  She was a mess. She is a loving, devoted girl.  She's around 4 now.  

Scruffy, in the middle is 6.  He is a very smart boy and Ioves to snuggle with his mommy and fish on the kayak with his daddy.  

Bud is 8.  He was another rescue.  He was dumped in our Petsmart parking lot one cold, rainy November night.  He was raw and bloody from the chest up. He had apparently been kept on a choker chain in the back yard.  

Bud is a perfect example of a cute puppy bought at a puppy store (his owners were kind enough to drop off his papers with him) without much forethought. The little puppy got big, wasn't trained, and his owners had a baby.  

Bud is a sweet, gentle, passive dog . . . until he gets nervous.  Through the 7 years we've had him, he has chewed himself out of two metal crates, fortunately with no injuries to him.  Now for our house, that's been another story. Ha!

They are all so adorable. How the myth has spread that rescue dogs are ugly and full of problems, I will never understand. Thanks for sharing their stories. I am so glad they found their way to you.

rescues are the best!!!! they bring you love ten fold!!! I tell people you can get a ugly ducking, or a purebred at the shelter.. but they all love you just the same!!

Carrie, with Tanner and Oliver said...

Funny, Tanner has such a knobby occipital lobe that his breeder was giving him up. I just gave him a donation toward his food and medical care costs. I couldn't be more pleased with that arrangement as he has turned out to be exactly what I wanted--a goofy, lovable Golden.
