I've had Rorschach for about a year now, and we have done a lot work! He's such an intelligent little dog, once he figures out what I want him to do, he can accomplish it. From the beginning, I noticed that he was incredibly social, and absolutely loved the chance to meet new people. I decided to harness that, and went through all the classes and testing required to get him certified as a therapy dog with a national organization. Now, we have the opportunity to go to hospitals, nursing homes, and schools for visits; we've been doing that since January.

"Meet Neville (and my daughter). We adopted Neville last October. He was 6 months old. He has become a great dog! Full of energy, smart and very goofy.  As you can tell, he has a best human kid. I am so glad we ran into an adoption drive that October day!



Blossom's new name is Lexi. We are very happy with her personality, she's strong, daring and sweet...she fits in with our family perfectly...when she's not playing she wants to cuddle in our laps. She has learned sit, stay and come, and working on more.
Lexi is very happy and loves her new home and family as much as we love her.

"Valentine is wonderful! She hasn't had any issues and is settling in really well. We go on walks almost everyday and take frequent trips to the dog park- which she loves! She's my big cuddle bug and I think that she saved me more than I saved her. Thanks for everything you guys do!"


We have about 15 thousand pictures of Blue!!!  He's doing well...still a pup obviously.  We are looking into using a trainer to turn him into a really wonderful dog.  He had mites, but got toxic from the medicine so we had to stop it and see how it went.  He's really looking more and more handsome....no evidence of critters.  My daughter made him an Instagram page...@bluethepittie

"I just wanted to let you know how thankful we are to have found Bruce! He is such a delight. He loves the kids and has fit in so nicely with our family! {The vet} did give us some great tips for health changes to look for unique to his missing that rear leg and how to help him be comfortable. Thank you so much for all you do!"



"Just a little photo update for Scotty Smalls...he's pretty chill in his furever home with his mini friends! We are so glad we found him."

After a year of having Piper, he seemed to be lonely, so I decided he needed a friend to hang out with. Pasha joined our family in February 2016 and she has been so much fun. She is a great companion for Piper and they have gotten along very well from the very first day. Pasha has so much energy and it is great to see them playing together. Piper waits for Pasha to go outside and will look for her before going out without her. Pasha loves to go for car rides where she can stick her head out the window and feel the breeze. She also thinks she is a 60 pound lap dog as she always wants to cuddle and be close to you.
