Leo’s Update

Posted on: Wednesday April 19

So this is the story of our dog Leo. My husband and I met and adopted Leo on February 5th of this year. I will never forget the moment we walked in at the petsmart location and I saw this sweet pup. I remember getting an unexplainable feeling that Leo was the perfect addition for our family of two. Leo was incredibly sweet but ofcourse there was a few things to work on. He was very shy and scared and would also bark at most dogs in a not so friendly manner. Although it has only been about 3 months since we have had him, Leo has made an outstanding progress! He is no longer shy, fearful or rough with other dogs. We have taught him to be gentle and kind to other dogs. Leo is a happy and energetic dog who wants to go out and explore the world. We love taking him on outdoor adventures, he loves to play with his toys, tennis balls, and also going on long runs and jogs. I would also love to point out that Leo was a rescue dog from Puerto Rico and it’s adorable how he seems tobunderstands much faster when we ask for basic commands in spanish. My husband and I are more than thankful to have met and adopted Leo! He is the joy of our lives and I will never regret giving Leo a chance. 

Thank you LDCRF

Rosie and Violet’s Update

As we celebrate our 6th anniversary of adopting our beloved Rosie (Waleska), and look forward to celebrating our 4th anniversary (in August) of our other precious girl, Violet (Hienna), we just want to share our gratitude and appreciation to Lost Dog Rescue.

Both of our girls were “Satos” from Puerto Rica. The journey we have traveled since being a family has brought us joy beyond words. Both Rosie and Violet went from shy, fearful girls to out going confident, well behaved owners of their universe! Even though they didn’t know each other before- they had an immediate attraction and are never far from each other’s side, nor ours. 

They are so happy, healthy and wonderful and the opportunity to be with them makes every day special. So, in case you ever doubt the impact of the wonderful work being done by lost dog, or the outcome of the efforts of bringing our girls here from Puerto Rica… we want to remind you, it’s made all of our lives perfect!!

Thank you so much!

We weren’t actively in the market for a second dog…but it happened and it was one of the best decisions ever! We are a Lost Dog alumni family; our beloved Carnival passed away from cancer in April of 2015. A month later, we adopted our Ziggy from another shelter and had readjusted to having a puppy in our home. Fast forward almost two years later and Ziggy and I were leaving Petsmart in Sterling when we ran into Zoië (formerly known as Christi), a gorgeous gray and white pittie mix. Ziggy and her hit it off immediately, and it was hard to tear them apart as they enjoyed playing with each other so much. I thought nothing of it at the time and we went about our day.  A few days later, I could not get Zoië off my mind and decided to check the Lost Dog website to see if she was still available. She was!!! I emailed Lost Dog to see when Zoië would be at an adoption event and a few days later we were anxiously waiting in line to adopt her. Zoië has seamlessly fit into our family and household and Ziggy and her continue to be the best of friends and love each other dearly. We are so happy that Zoië came into our lives.  We know how lucky we are as we could not even make our way out of the store after completing the adoption paperwork without everyone stopping us to see if she was available for adoption. We know it was meant to be and are so grateful that we are blessed to be her family.

Lobo is doing very well- healthy, happy, and adjusting to our whole family. In fact, we bring him to the nursing home where my father in-law is staying and he brings him great comfort. Plus, all the nurses and staff absolutely love him. As you can see in the photos, he is looking pretty sharp these days. We took him to the groomer’s and now he can’t stop posing!
