    Re: A Different Breed Adoption Pictures

    Teddie, your posts are always heartbreaking and heartwarming at the same time. How sad to hear all the stories of how they end up in rescue and about all the ones that didn't make it to you, but so glad to hear of all the ones you guys found wonderful forever homes for.

    Ok, I want Sasha, Kenya, Sonora, Ricky and that adorable little female pup with no name......

    They're all so adorable Teddie.

    I think the reason Britches hasn't been adopted is because he's meant to be yours Teddie.

    Re: A Different Breed Adoption Pictures

    Thank you everyone for taking another look! I am always ready to make my thread when I get home from the adoption. It's become a...Bag down, Teddie out to pee, grab camera, cord, and computer, into room, feed Ted and start uploading pictures. I'm glad you all liked them. I'd really have a lot of dogs placed if gass would go down and I could make these trips! You're all the best!

    It's always hard leaving all of the others behind. When it comes to picking the dogs we really only pull from the "do" list.

    Which could be out of 10 or out of 50 different dogs. We look at personality; if we end up with an aggressive dog there is no telling what will happen once it's back at it's foster home. It could be stress aggression, it could be pure aggression that we can't change. Most foster homes have several other dogs or cats that we can't put in danger. If the aggression is soemthing that cannot be changed (I've adopted a dog like this) it's better for both a potential home and the animal to let them be humanly euthanized. That is no kind of life for a dog to be locked up for the rest of it's like. Or to be locked in it's own body. Now on the other hand pretty much every dog we get is shy and scared. It takes about a week for them to come out of their shells.

    Age is a huge factor too. We do pull older dogs, we have some that are 10. When it comes to age, medical and adoptability is factored in. Almost every elder dog we bring in has some time of health problem. Heartworms, brocken bones, fractures, terrible teeth to were most have to be pulled, massive skin conditions. The list could go on for miles. With older abused/neglected dogs we see a lot more problems. Most of the time the problems are bigger too.

    Lately we've pulled a lot of smaller dogs because we know they go super fast. Out of every 10 people that come in 9 are looking for a small dog. So that one person looking for a bigger dog is looking for the right one too. That puts a lot of pressure on the larger dogs. Some that we've had years.

    Breed has some do with it. Like I said size is sometimes a problem. If we do take in larger dogs then they are most likely puppies that will grow into large dogs. They have a chance at being adopted faster..two of those pups (Orville and Aster) already went to homes.

    I have only ever once pulled dogs and transfered twice. When I pulled dogs I had to go to the larger (600+ animals) shelter where everywhere you turned there was another dog. I had a complete break down because of how many I would have liked to pull. Being me all were adult, larger dogs and 3/4 were pits. Put you know a "mean" looking pit bull no matter how nice they are has a slim chance of being adopted and to a good home. When Darkmoon adopted Nubs she even said she had to look twice because from the outside of the kennel he looked mean. But then you see how adorable and well hearted he really is. There aren't many Darkmoons out there though which makes things tough. (Sorry DM Nubs is a perfect example and a cutie).

    We have a lot of pits already in our group- Britches, Jelly Bean, Sasha, Amy, Sugar, Duchess, Ebony, Maverick, Mr. Bynks, Roxie, Snickers, Twinkie, and many more that are in foster care. Some that haven't ever seen an adoption. Sasha just started coming up to adoptions and she's 2 years old. Her foster mom has had her 1 1/2 years. Most of these we've had since they were 5 -8 weeks old now are either close to adults or years old. Britches is another perfect example. He is very well trained and mannered, knows basic commands, loves people, kids, and any dog he meets, he's a couch potato, yet can go for walks/runs with you, plays in water, plays fetch..he hasn't been adopted though. Most of the time he gets passed right over.

    One way of looking at it is "do you feel comfortable adopting this dog out?". Then you have to go from there. This is the best way I know to explain it, but I'm sure if I gave it even more thought I could think of other reasons too.

    Ok that turned out to be really long. Sorry.

    Re: A Different Breed Adoption Pictures

    I want to start this with a fresh yet old face. A volunteer with us adopted Scrappy maybe 6 months ago. (I don’t have dates or pictures) Scrappy was a dog we pulled from AS that was COMPLETEY matted. I convinced (K) to bring him back in at the end of the adoption so I could see him. I recommended her to my groomer since both Scrappy and Ted have a past of biting when it comes to grooming. He is such a stunner now..


    Pudge is a dog that was pulled today from AS. His owner was deployed to Iraq so he turned him over to AS where he ended up on the euthanasia list. He’s got a good life ahead of him now that we have him.


    This is one of two dogs pulled when a puppy mill was closed. Her name is Kachina and is said to be a Chiweenie. I on the other hand think she’s just a Chihuahua if anything maybe a little pug because of her rolliness. She was PISSED at me the entire day.

    The little guy that was pulled along with Kachina, his name is Rocco. Like his cage mate he didn’t like me, but by the end of the day, on our last walk actually, he lit up. I want to know what lit the fire under his butt!



    Now with NAMES!!! Tammy and Lenny (Tan) were asleep while it was noise around..

    Re: A Different Breed Adoption Pictures

    Fabian is a Schnauzer mix; his pictures make him look bigger than he is. He weighs around 10 pounds maybe a little less. AS shaved his back and face then gave him a bath. Mean while his legs were so matted and I got that job. Lol It took me over all about 2 hours to trim four legs. I couldn’t tell what was skin and what was the actual matt. The hair cut isn’t good, but at least he doesn’t have those matts all over him.

    A bad after

    Re: A Different Breed Adoption Pictures

    This is Winston a Greyhound mix. He was found running with his brother on a “country” road. Lovey boy and so gentle, so different from his brother.



    Walter, Winstons brother, looks to be a Greyhound/Catahoula mix and hard headed! He is a love bug, but almost too much of one. Is that possible? His coloring was great and he even had one party eye.

    Re: A Different Breed Adoption Pictures

    Another of Duke..that little porky monster. lol


    This little guy was pulled from AS too but is still nameless. He LURVS treats; he’ll do anything for one. That’s the only way I got good pictures of him. Lol They had him as a Pom mix..I have him as a Pomerania/Spitz mix. He’s tall and has the face of a Spitz.



    Pasqual was returned because he’s to smart for his own good. So he went and got groomed on Friday and came to the adoption in better style than any of us. It’s not a good picture, but it was a fast snap before I went outside again.

    Aster and Orville were there again with us and they slept the whole time. In many different ways too.

    Re: A Different Breed Adoption Pictures

    Yet another Shih Tzu was pulled from AS. Milligan is the name and belly scratches, snorting, and cage jumping is my game. He was estimated to be 10 years old by the AS vet, but I think by his condition and the way he acts he’s a case of young dogs with bad teeth. Shih Tzu’s are known for having dental problems so it’s no surprise from him being on the street. I say he’s between 5 and 6 years old. Ummmm can you tell I like him?
    All groomed and handsome

    Yeah yeah yeah I fell for another Shih Tzu.. Go on and laugh…. lol I know I did!!

    He wanted be to come and get him sooooooooooooooo bad! He was doing the happy Tzu dance.

    I had to trim the hair between his eyes and above his nose. When he came in it was matted, greased, and just plain disgusting. So a bath a’ we went. Shih Tzu’s have the CUTEST grumpy faces!

    **All done... THANK YOU THANK YOU FOR LOOKING!!**

    Teddie, those are some real cuties. I love the way Aster and Orville sleep
    Just curious Teddie, on average, how many dogs get adopted during one of your adoption days? Do you get a large group of people coming in to adopt?

    It just depends on the weekend. Sometimes we have no adoptions other days we can get 8 adoptions. Yesterday we had one adoption; Gabby!!!! and a homecheck that didn't turn out to well. Oh and nother application that looked very good. We just ahve to wait on the home check. Usually we have a lot of people come to adoptions from all over. Some people that even drove 1-2 hours to come see the dogs.

    Re: A Different Breed Adoption Pictures

    The fact that they drive 1-2 hours to come see the dogs tells you something Teddie. Your rescue must be one of the best.

    No matter how many people come to look, it looks like it's a fun day for the dogs and the people running the adoption..

    Thanks for sharing the pictures Teddie. I must say, the dogs that you care for are very lucky.
