Happy Tails

We adopted Penn last weekend and immediately he fit in perfect with our family! We have a five year old rescue labradoodle and they became best friends right away! He is just so sweet and brings so much more love to our little family! Thank you for all that you do and giving us this wonderfully fur baby!

 

Genevieve, dale, willow, penn! 

After our 16 year old, Angie passed we knew we wanted to get another dog to be a companion to our 13 year old Penny, who is a Chug.  I searched on the internet for many different rescues & shelter to find another Chug.   We have fell in love with this breed ever since we got Penny 13 years ago.  With knowing that Penny is up in years & that we could lose her soon we wanted to get a dog now instead of waiting.  

I saw that there were Pomerians available in GA & there was a chug in Richmond, VA.  We live in Horntown, VA right near the MD line.  We were willing to drive for the right dog.  We saw Tillie bio & we knew she was the one.  She is past the puppy stage but still  youthful & I wanted a lovable dog that would snuggle with me.  As our Penny has aged she does not want snuggles as much.  

We drove over 7 hours each way to Martinsville, VA to pick up Tillie.  She was a little timid at first .  She did not want to leave the foster mother.  We decided to drive back to Horntown instead of spending the night & have her disrupted again.  She was such an angel on the drive in the car.  I sat in the back seat & loved on her from time to time.  She was still quite shy.  My husband & I switched drivers & he sat in the back seat with Tillie.  Tillie whined & wanted to come up front with me.  After about 15 minutes she made her way to the fron passager seat.  She sat there the rest of the way home.  My poor husband had to sit in the back!

She was scared at first as we expected.  We gave her space & let her explore the house.  She met our other dog Penny & they had no gumbles about each other.  Later she met our cat, Lovey.  Tille could care less about her but our cat insisted on hissing at her.  Almost every time they meet Lovey will his at her.  Tillie will perk up her ears & move on.  

Tillie is the most loveable dog I have ever had.  From the 1st night she has slept right next to me.  She waits for me to give her permission to get up on the bed then she proceeds to give me a mulitude of kisses.  When she settles down she put her head under the covers with her behind sticking most of the time.  Sometimes she will go all the way under the sheets.  She sleeps there all night like a perfect lady.  She insists on sitting with me on the living room recliner.  (it is a tight fit).  She has learned where the treats are kept & when the dogs get their treats.  I cannot image why anyone would give her up.  She is our baby & she is not going anywhere but with us.  She loves her doggy beds & likes to stretch out in them during the day.  She uses the doggy door like a pro.  She is so sweet, loveable & snuggable.  We are so glad she has joined our family.  

Rescues are the best dogs.  The appreciate the love & kindness we give them & give you undying love in return.  Thank you Carolina Canine Rescue for all that you do to help these angels.  

 

I adopted Bartlet (previously "Little Little") in September 2014 as a companion for my corgi, Bonnie. He was shy, submissive, and extremely anxious at first, but has since settled into my family and my heart so completely. Thanks so much to Carolina Canine Rescue for your care of Bartlet in the fostering and adoption process, and for arranging to get him to us all the way in Upstate NY!

It seems like yesterday that Peanut made the trip from Carolina Rescue in North Carolina to North Tonawanda, New York. He's been the joy of my life an can't believe 5 years has gone by. I remember waiting anxiously to hear that he was available and that I met the requirements and then for the day to arrive - I have been blessed every day since. He was only 12 lbs when I got him and we all wondered if he would grow into his ears - he's now 23 lbs.  Thank you Carolina Rescue for saving my baby!

We adopted Jax (previously known as Cooper) in January 2014 and he has brought such joy into our lives ever since. He's now 6 1/2 years old and the most perfect, lovable, good boy. I can't imagine life without him. Thank you so much for bringing him into our lives!!

We adopted Tank 9 months ago and we can't imagine our lives without him. He is smart, playful and affectionate. He is loved by eveyone he meets. He is one of the family and he knows it. Thank you to Carolina Canine Rescue and David his foster family.

Harley is settling in nicely. He gets along with our cat also. Thank you for choosing us to be Harleys adopters . We are thrilled to give him a loving, forever home.

Angel is doing great!  Our 6 year old is so excited to have her in our home . We are working on obedience training and she is  such a quick learner.  We can't get enough of her ! I'd like to thank you for getting the sweet girl out of the shelter and helping us adopt her! She is like family already!

(Gary was found lying on the side of the road so close to death that he could barely lift his head, nothing but skin and bones. With proper vet care, good food, and lots of TLC, Gary has fully recovered and is now in his new home, happy as a clam!)

From his new owner-

Gary was a little shy his first night but one day has made a big difference as he is one happy pup! We’re going to get a license today and if it doesn’t rain we’ll go to the dog park with a vet visit later this week. He’s done well on a leash (except when he sees the neighbor cats) walking around our property. Thank you again for your assistance and your organization!

6 month update

Good evening,
My wife and I adopted Stanley from you guys back in June. We just wanted to give you guys an update on this big boy.
Stanley is now about 9 months and 75 lbs. He loves running around and going to the dog park to play with all the other dogs. He’s very sweet and loves to give everyone he meets licks! He’s a very smart boy and has graduated from beginner and intermediate classes. He has two kitty brothers that he loves to chase around the house. He’s a big goofball but we’re so happy that you chose us to be his parents. He’s the best dog we could’ve asked for.
Thanks again. Hope you guys have a great holiday.
Sean & Sabrina K.

Thank you again for rescuing this girl! She brings joy to her entire world. She loves everyone she meets and everyone loves her! She gets along great with her kitty brothers and greyhound brother. We wonder if she may have some basset hound mixed in as she is quite a calm puppy, though she does have her crazy zoomy spells at 9:00 pm every day! Lol. Enjoy the pictures and I'll let you know when she gets spayed in a couple of months. Take care!

Hi there,
Just wanted to send you an update on our girl Ashley! We've had her one week now and she's been absolutely amazing. Her personality started to show early this week and we couldn't be happier. She is the funniest, sweetest, most cuddly girl! She loves her "twin" sister Brooklyn! They follow each other everywhere. Brooklyn wasn't always keen of other dogs but she fell in love with Ashley instantly! Bringing ashley home was one of the best decisions we've made this year!
Thank you again!!! Here are some more pictures and Ashley and Brooklyn:

Cannoli's (Warrior's) first summer

Hi! Just sending a quick update on our happy growing boy! Cannoli was fixed in the beginning of June. He weighs about 60/65 lbs. He has been spending his summer swimming in the lake & running his energy out at the dog park. He loves a good campfire & is known to sit & watch the fire for hours. He is so super loving & so playful. Our hearts are so full! How quickly our world has changed & it seems all moments revolve around him! 

We would love to get in touch with his siblings, so if by chance any of them are looking to get in touch maybe for a play date please share our contact info with them! Or if they've sent you any photos we would love to see what they look like now. Can't thank you guys enough for approving our adoption, he really has changed our lives in an amazing way.

Subject: Celebrating our 1 Year Anniversary of Sammy's Gotcha Date!

Hi Melanie and Carolina Canine Rescue Team,

One year ago today we welcomed Sammy (previously known as Shaggy) into our lives.  He is a wonderful, loving, sweet, cuddly, adorable pup and we cannot imagine our lives without him.  Sammy continues to fill our lives with love, licks, and lots of joy.  He loves to take walks and to play and is a perfect companion for us.  We cannot thank you enough for giving us the opportunity to bring Sammy into our home and our lives.  We love him and are grateful for the work you do to give these special dogs a chance for the lives they deserve.

Sincerely yours,

Ellen & Steven

Hi Melanie,
We want to let you know that everything went perfectly when we picked up Shaggy (whom we renamed Sammy) from the transport on Saturday morning.  We have had a wonderful few days with our darling dog and he is as sweet in person as he was in his video.  We called Home Again yesterday and got Sammy's microchip registered and ordered his permanent tag.  Today we went to the vet and got Sammy started on his heartworm prevention medication.  We also visited our town clerk and got his dog license.  He has already brought so much joy to our lives and we are head over heels in love with him.  Once again we want to thank you and your organization, especially the foster families and transport teams, for the amazing work you do.

 

Sincerely yours,

Ellen & Steven
