Oh beautiful Blue, what a rough start to life you had. So unsocialized that you had 0 intention of paying attention to people. When you arrived as another deaf heeler brother, 1 of your brothers had already been adopted. We got the request to help you so we met. You LOVE car rides. You LOVE your person. You spent time in a home where it was just you and your foster mom. She taught you itsyerchoice because you kept insisting your ball be thrown. Such a quick learner too! Even though your unique Heterochromia eye may make some assume you don't look at anyone, you would not have learned signs without looking at them. You still enjoy playing fetch, chewing on the goughnut you claimed, and going for rides with your mama. She IS your person. I hope that since coming to WI, you have felt nothing but love. You deserve it just like all animals do.
You and your brother came in together from IN. Didn't expect 2, but how could we leave either one of you? Turns out, you ended up being the only hearing brother we ended up with. You 2 were a joy and playful and loved people. You both went on many adventures together until a couple saw you playing at the park. They filled out an application and were approved before you were even old enough to neuter. They were willing to work around this and were very good about being responsible dog parents. We hear you're a lap dog and are doing well. You look so big next to both your brothers. You didn't know, but about 7 months later, another brother joined the rescue. Turns out, you make a great Boone for your people and a good dog sibling. Here's to a wonderful life!
Did you know you were named first by a page fan? Your mama and siblings were then also named with the Winnie the Pooh theme. We were so infatuated with your whole family since we were told the hardships you all went through together. You grew from a tiny puppy into a youngster right before our eyes. A veterinary diagnosed you with solar dermatitis, so we created a fundraiser so it could be treated and we could buy sun protection clothing. You didn't mind wearing clothes so it was fun dressing you. You played well at the dog park and at doggy daycare. Every single person that met you fell in love. You have always had the best personality Piglet, we were always surprised when you came back to rescue from foster homes. We now know why. You were waiting for your new foster mom to foster fail. We love the updates from your forever mom. Love you Piggy.
Have we ever told you about the first time we met Pepper? It was dark and colder than expected, the street in front was full of cars so we met you down a side road, and we got help from the home they parked in front of. You sure didn't like that, but who can blame a girl for being cautious. We loved you from then on even though you returned from foster placements. You are so smart and so full of puppy energy, maybe you just liked it better here. Doggy Daycare, learning new things, and running around were your favorite. Lots of other puppies came and went and you played with them all. You learned to mimic the service dogs here and we assumed that's all it was until you began alerting when they weren't around. We knew then that scent training was your specialty. You are so mellow now that our only concern was why it was taking you so long to find your own home. We know why now. You were waiting for this family, yes, this family. They have another dog, children, chickens, and a big yard for those zoomies you love. Thank you for letting us be a part of your journey Pepper.
We work so hard to find people to foster since we do not have an intake facility that sometimes we have no luck, but you came in during a storm system and went into a foster home quickly. You were such a tiny little bundle. You started out with the name Lily and did fine with both your foster moms, but at the third one, you would only listen if millie molly moo was said so they went with it. Thus the Two. 😉 You sure are an active girl who loves running and playing. You are very social even if you are still learning dog socialization skills along the way. Your family is so go with the flow that we are so happy they loved you even before you arrived at their home. You are doing well with your kitty sibling, your human sibling, and learning your new routine. Be well little Millie and have fun! 💕
While we do everything we can to save every dog we can, sometimes real life situations happen that do not allow it, though you 3 made it after many weather delays. As always, we are always amazed at how tiny puppies are when they arrive. After only a few days at the rescue, you were lucky enough to find a foster home that became a foster fail very quickly. Best place for you to be too as you have 2 human siblings and dog siblings to grow up with. We always hope you remember us and while you may have been more eager to leave the space, you looked when I said, "hello Brother!" You made my day as you were so happy to see your human mom, who took you home. We wish you the happiest life Abel.
This little boy, labeled M-b was in need of rescue. Please know that while we try to help every single pup that comes our way, we really were not expecting anyone until those here already were adopted. That being said, this cute little guy found his home and was picked up by his human mom directly from the transport. They have adopted from us before so their intentions were known from the start. Have a happily ever after Astro!
You and your siblings were younger than we thought, but the 3 of you and your mama were finally safe. You were a good boy, but always on the move. This may have been why you always came back to the rescue while at foster homes, but that was okay as you loved doggy daycare. You learned quickly. You grew quickly too. You loved to play and run and eat and have the best personality. You did find another foster who knew someone that were very interested in adopting you. Sometimes the world is a wonderful connection because without that foster, we may never have connected with your forever family. When we dropped you off, your human mom was already in love. We connected again the day of your altering and we couldn't believe how much more you had grown! You have a great yard, and great humans now Roo Roo; and, we're so very happy you found your place in the world.
You and your babies were put into the local animal control. Only 3 of them made it out with you. You were so stressed and concerned about those 3 that the rescue kept you until your pups were a couple months old. It was learned that while you learned to trust the foster home, you preferred males. You were also known to follow Winnie the Pooh's thought, “I wasn't going to eat it, I was just going to taste it.” 😃 One of your babies looked so much like a baby piglet that naming became fun, thus your name, Winnie. You were lucky to find a foster home with less dogs around and a big yard to explore. Turns out, they couldn’t live without you! What a wonderful new year you'll have! Wishing you the best Winnie.
You were the little girl of the siblings so your name, Kessie, seemed very fitting being that that is the name of the adoptive daughter of Rabbit, a small and slender blue bird. You were so different looking than your siblings too, but those eyes are the best. While here, you were just as sassy and playful as your siblings, but, oh, those looks you used to give when corrected made us laugh each time. You ended up in a foster to adoption home early and we missed your sassiness here; but, your human dad loved you already. We got to see you again when you had your altering appointment and how adorable you've become already. You really are a little gem, Ruby. I hope you've become a very confident little girl and love your life.
Did you know you came in with your sister? You were so unsure when you both arrived and then she found a foster home right away. While it took just a bit longer, you loved the other foster dogs here while you stayed here too. We had too many puppies with similar names so we usually said, Milly, Molly, Moo and you + some of the other girls always came running. Always shy, you caught the eye of a young couple ready to add a puppy to their lives. They fostered you until you were ready for adoption and you fell in love with their huge yard and all those leaves falling + squirrels! You and your new family are going to learn so much together and your human mom is so in love with you that we cannot wait to see you again to hear all about you, sweet Melody.
Sometimes when you see a puppy all alone in the world, you just know you're going to help. How could anyone resist? You had so much to teach us and so much you learned that it's almost impossible to demonstrate how far you came in the few months you were here. Even with the medical issue, you learned every day what it was like to trust other dogs and that people would not leave you by the roadside anymore. You are so loved baby bean, that when you started doggy daycare, that many there also fell in love with you. Your new mom is doing wonders with you allowing you to work with her, run with her, and learn with her. That means so much since you are also so missed here. So glad you are confident and loving your new cat friends and your people. Wishing you the bestest life ever DJango_Bean. 💙
Do you remember coming in with your sister? You both stuck together those first few days until a foster home was found for you. You learned to live with others and got to go on lots of car rides. Almost as soon as you arrived, you caught the attention of a family that had adopted from us previously. They were looking for another pup that also loved to play. They certainly got what they wished for. You had Hershey to show you the ropes and you are everything they hoped for. Be happy with your siblings, both dog and human and we'll see you soon sweet Lucy.
You came in because your mom knew she was no longer able to care for you. She told us so much about you that it was as if you had always been here. You're such a gorgeous boy to boot. Because of some misunderstanding, you were known in the social media scene as Chito; but, here, you were always called Chico. Every time we said your name, you seemed so happy that you wiggled your entire self. You are the goofiest, friendliest, kindest big lug ever to cross into our path and we are grateful we got the time we did with you. You now get to care for your girl and be there for her the way you were for our elderbull and all those foster puppies. They are so lucky to have you. Love you Chico. 💙💙
You were rescued from the country where they tried to throw you away. Good thing life had other plans for you. So little, underweight and dehydrated, you were exhausted your first week with the rescue. Sharing your picture reached a family that said they'd foster to adopt, so while you were rescued, your cute self found a family within days of checking out with our veterinary. Cannot wait to see you progress with this family. Love you sassy pants, you're such a love Opal.
You arrived here on 11/11/18 in the middle of delivering your puppies. You and 4 of your babies came all the way from the middle of IL because the transporters decided it was safest for you all that way. They are some of the nicest people we've ever met. You were such a good mama and watched over your crew for the 10 weeks they were all here. Many moved on to foster homes, but your foster home came later. Since you enjoyed your time here, we were okay with that. Your foster family turned out to be very good people as they worked with you to make you feel at home. Your favorite spot was their cat perch by the front window. As you became more comfortable there, you also decided to push them to see how far they'd allow you to go. Luckily, we have an amazing trainer now connected with DreamABull and they realized after 2 sessions that you finally decided they were your people. How great is that?! Foster to adoption is our favorite rescued dog. You are a very lucky girl Elsie and we are happy you all chose each other.
"The things that make me different are the things that make me." Just like 3 others of your siblings, you joined the world while on transport 11/11/18. You were such a sweet puppy that it doesn't surprise us that your new dad says the same thing about you today. You left us for a while staying at a foster home, but came back once there were only 3 brothers left. You are a silly little bear, full of antics and spectacular jumps, somersaults, and flips. You always allowed the other fosters here take whatever you were playing with, but then would speak your mind about them having it when you really still wanted to play with it. While here, you learned what Shhh meant and you were learning what an inside bark is. You are smarter than you pretend and learned itsyerchoice easily. You love crate games; and, mealtime is so exciting you not only dance about it, you sing about it.😉 Love you Bear bear. "How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard."
Sweet Rosie needed a rescue to step up to save her life. With the help of her 2 very determined and dedicated foster moms, that's exactly what happened. She is happy, content, and well loved. You deserve your new life Rosie!
It sure took us a long time to finally reach you Coby. Such confusion; but then, you were safe with us. You were said to be scared, but it was more like uncertainty because you sure had no issues following us into the local feed store because you didn't have anything except the leash we brought. You were cool and collect all the way back and into your foster home. By the way, you were a hit there too. So much so that you became our second foster fail. Sometimes, even with just a short time with a rescued dog, they come to steal your heart. This pup knew who I was immediately when we came for the home check. Just know there's been several we have rescued, but this one is going to hold a piece of my heart forever. Have a happy, healthy life with your new family Obi Wan! 💙
Baby Clarie arrived ready to prove she was the loudest of the litter born 11/11/18. Always watching the people moving about, she realized exactly when it was time to see mama enter the kennel. She became the smallest mobile puppy and needed some help eating without the other 7 gobbling it faster than she could return to the bowls. She also was pretty sassy and got her way by being the only one sleeping in her own kennel. Either way, crate games became her favorite training game the entire time she was in her foster home. She was the first to verbally let the foster parents know she had to go outside. She was also the first at her foster home to conquer the steps and liked to show off as her brothers stayed on the porch. She loved gathering sticks and taking them to their outside dome of branches. She learned a lot of things quickly and caught her forever mom's attention when they first met. After meeting her new possible canine sister, life began at her forever home. Continue to be adorable, innocent, trustworthy and the sweetest thing ever sweet pea!!!
Oh Cookie, such a pretty baby from the beginning. Why Cookie? Because you were the black and white puppy that fit the name the moment you were picked up. Since it was just your sister and you against all those brothers, you were louder than they were. You were the soonest to open your eyes, move about, and sit on your own using itsyerchoice! Such a smart, happy, playful puppy you are. Your parents are some of sweetest people and we are so happy you got to connect with them when you were still tiny enough for them to see what a curious, playful puppy you were then, and now. They deserve you and you deserve them. Be ever so happy sweet Cookie!
While there's so much to remember, and what everyone needs to know, is how quick you really are even in a new location. You and 1 of your sisters went to a great foster home where you learned what puppies learn to be good adult dogs. You didn't seem to mind new locations as you were so smart and knew how to find the way outside to go potty. You also learned itsyerchoice on your first day back at the rescue while we waited for your adoption. You already knew that your forever home's stairs mean going outside to go potty, even if you have to squeeze through the bars like your new cat sibling. We sure hope your family catches on as quickly. 😊 You have always been the boy with the looks and that is what attracted your family to choosing you. You always knew that when mush was being spoon fed that automatically sitting meant you got one of the first spoonful. You knew that going potty was better on a potty pad instead of where everyone slept in the dog bed. You may have been at your foster home longer than being here, but we wish you the bestest life ever little Comet. Be smart, be happy, and be the brightest Comet ever. Love you.
You were born 11/11/18 and now you're 13 weeks old and in your forevermore home. Your name, Blitzen, came about because there are 8 of you and 8 reindeer. In the time we were lucky to have you here, you learned your name, though the shortened version, Blitz. As you got older, you gained some wrinkles just like a hound dog would. You are a beautiful pure white with a dark eye and a blue eye. While it might not seem so, you will be missed since you always understood the game, itsyerchoice, when it came to those snack times. You are already loved and spoiled. We are grateful for the support of your new mom. Enjoy your life little Leo!
There were 4 of you that day you all came here. You were tall and very much fit your given name. While you all may have wondered why you were here, you actually had fun with the others puppies also here. You took the time away from your sisters and investigated. When everyone else made their way to foster homes, you stayed here specifically because you engaged with the scared female here. You adapted well and enjoyed all the attention you got being the only sister now. You were always a calm, fun, silly, sassy young dog. Your name and your looks got you noticed by a family away from the city limits. They have 2 young girls and while we'll miss your ability to create calm, we are so happy you get to grow up in a community with those girls. We wish you forever happiness and may you always give Hershey kisses.
You and the rest of the PAWS puppies came in together. You always seemed to be near the only sister. Because you were also a bit shy in new circumstances, it just made sense. You even ended up in the same foster home. You are such a sweet pea that it would take a special family willing to help you with your shyness to see you and fall in love. While you may not have been adopted as quickly as the others, you enjoyed playing at your sister's house and with the other set of puppies here at the same time. You even warmed up at doggy daycare. I think we will always make sure you are safe and sound no matter how long you are in your forever home. May you always have a happy, healthy life Dashy Bo Dashy.
Caliah Blue is an Irish Staffordshire. She is now 11 years old and a great first dog. She meets all the fosters with grumbling, but acceptance.
