Happy Tails


Picked up Daisy Lou around 1am this morning.  She has already made herself at home.  She is beautiful.

Thank you for all you do for these pups and thank you for all your help adopting

Buddy is doing wonderful.  We adore him!  He IS as sweet and adorable as you said he would be!!  We gave him a nice, warm bath and he looks beautiful.  I am making an appointment with the groomer today.  Walter is such a nice man!  I'm happy to know Buddy was in such good hands during his transport. He is being very spoiled, as this little boy so deserves.  Thank you for fostering him and taking care of him!! We are sooo happy to have him apart of our family!! ❤





Hi Melanie,

Skippy is now "Finch" and Barbie is now "Wren".  They are so sweet!.  I think they are perfect for us.   They're really timid and very reluctant to come to us-once we sweet talk them into getting close enough, they don't want us to stop touching them.

Thanks for what you do!

Hi Melanie,
Dixie has been doing great in obedience, and therapy too.She has her Rally Novice title and today she got her Beginners Novice Obedience title with a first place score!!!!!  She also has all the CGC titles and finished her Tail Waggin' Tutor qualification, but we're still going to keep going to the library. So we're going to stay with the TWT, Rally and Obedience and see how many titles she can get.  So far her name is Yeandle's Dixie, CGC CGCA CGCU TDI TDIA TDIAOV TWT RN BN  and I still have to apply for the AKC therapy titles.

So, Dixie is doing great and once she gets going she just keeps on going.  I feel bad, tho, bkz the winter was so cold, we didn't get many serious walks in, but now that it's getting nicer outside, we can go for longer walks.

And she is really smart- in the morning, she automatically goes to the left for her longer walks, and in the evening, she goes to the right to pee and then just automatically goes back to the door to come in.  And when we started going to obedience classes, it was really weird, bkz she knew some things that I never really had to teach her.  She knew where heel position and how to get there  from standing in front of me, so someone taught here something at some time. 
I'm just so happy with her, thank you again.

 Hi Melanie,
Just wanted to let you know that Dixie passed her Therapy Dog Test on Saturday!!!  Now she can go to nursing homes, hospitals, and my favorite is to go to the library to let kids read to her.  They really seemed to like that when I did it with my previous dog.  Can't wait to get started.  If not for the paperwork

Hi Melanie!

I just wanted to let you know how incredibly happy we are with Snowbell (who we now call Bailey Bell)! She is just the sweetest, snuggliest, smartest dog ever, and is everything our family could ask for in a canine companion. 

We were very nervous about adopting a dog we'd never met and putting her through such a long trip, but even my husband agrees that it was the right call, because we would've missed out on our perfect dog if we hadn't taken the risk! 

Thank you again for all of your help and for saving her in the first place, your organization is really wonderful, and we are so happy that Bailey Bell is finally home!

Hello,  Honey arrived this morning. She is delight and exactly what we wanted. She has already made herself at home and seems to be doing well.

Thank you so much.

Hi Melanie and Mo,

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to adopt Angel. She is just the sweetest thing. She's adjusting to her new home and has found her favorite spot – my favorite chair. She loves to sleep in my lap. I gave her a bath today and she looks beautiful.

Things are going GREAT!  What an awesome dog!  We feel incredibly fortunate to have Ralphie in our lives, and he seems to be comfortable with us, too.  He has just merged right into the rhythm of our lives without missing a beat.  Our younger daughter, the one who is scared of dogs, is doing amazingly well, too.  Of course there are a few things he can work on, like not jumping on people, and having better leash manners, but even with those things he is fantastic.  We start obedience classes this coming Tuesday so we can be the best dog/owners team we can be!  Thank you again for this opportunity, and for saving Ralphie from the high-kill shelter!

Dear Melanie, It is a gorgeous day here in the Northeast and what makes it even more wonderful is our adorable Jinx, now named Jadah, is home! She is wonderful and has already filled our home with love.  We are so grateful to you and your organization.  The folks that transported her couldn't have been more special to Jadah and all the other pups in their care.  Again thank you and Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

Voyager is doing GREAT! He had a good night last night and has been running around outside all day today, going on walks and playing in the leaf piles. He's completely zonked out on the couch with my son right now. He's very loving and friendly and wants any attention anyone is willing to give him :) We've renamed him Cooper. Cooper Kai! 

Thanks again for all your help in bringing him to us!Rebecca, Mike, Simon and Maya

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!
