Bentley came to us in August of 2018. He was dumped in our neighborhood and as I looked out my upstairs window I saw him across the street wobbling back and forth. I immediately ran out of my house across the street to retrieve him. He was definitely having a heat stroke. I brought him in the house and gave him water . He was not in good shape and on death's door. The next day I took him to my vet and they told me they've never seen such a bad ear infection in all their life it was so bad his ears were black inside. They also told me that he had a bad heart and possibly was hit by a car because he could not open up his mouth all the way and his front paw was extremely sensitive to touch. They asked me what I wanted to do and without fail I told them to do whatever they had to do to get him well.
Two years later he is alive and well, but unfortunately he now has diabetes. Bentley is now 80% blind but the care and love that he gets is beyond measure. We don't know how much longer we will have him but rest assured he is in the best of care and he is one Grateful Dog.
Joey came to us in 2011 by way of Craigslist. We all know that small dogs on Craigslist that are listed often end up as bait dogs for dog fighting rings.
I immediately called the woman and said I wanted the dog and we drove to East Texas to retrieve him that day. There's no telling what his fate would have been if we did not see that ad on Craigslist.
He's been such a wonderful joy to have and full of energy. He is one Grateful Dog and loved be measure.
This beautiful little girl was only 6 weeks old when found in our garage one morning. I guess she slipped in there during the night when the door was open. She had a deformed right paw that looked like she may have been stepped on or whoever had her before hurt her.
She's been part of our family for 16 years now. She is a feisty one and she thinks she's the queen of the house of which she is. She's so very grateful as are we to have her apart of our family.
Roxy came to us in 2012. I was on my way to work and left earlier than usual that day. I was going down a major highway when I looked into my rear view mirror and saw a man dump her on the shoulder of the highway. I immediately got off the highway onto the service road came back around the opposite highway back onto the service road praying the whole time please, please don't let this dog run out into the highway! I finally reached her and slowly pulled up onto the shoulder and opened up my passenger door. She came in and sat down on the floorboard immediately as she was not in good shape. She just had puppies because the milk was still fresh on her little nipples her ribs were showing and it was clear that she was being starved to death.
It was 110° out that day and I'll never forget how panicked I felt inside my heart praying that I could get to her in time before something tragic happened.
She is very happy now, and very grateful to be in such a good home. She is wonderful and a joy to have.
I lived in the country back in 1997 and all of these beautiful fur babies were dumped and ended up of course on my doorstep.
Every single one of them have passed away now since then but I can assure you that they all were loved and spoiled beyond words.
There's not a day that goes by that they're not missed.
Jenny Gump came to us in 1998. We lived in the country and I was out mowing the yard when I saw this hound dog approach me from the driveway. I went up to her and saw that her collar was so tight around her neck that it was literally embedded into her skin.
I took the collar off slowly of course and administered some medical ointment around her neck. She was an older dog and it was very clear that wherever she came from was not a very good place.I know I am very grateful to have had her for the very short time that I did. We gave her a very loving home with lots of treats and a big comfy bed to lay her head down at night safe and sound.
