Zoey aka Mittens’ Update

Posted on: Wednesday August 16

We were so happy to adopt Mittens (renamed Zoey).  She has been a welcome addition to our home and has been the perfect playmate for our other adopted animals, Miles and Riley.  As soon as we brought her home, she wasted no time making herself at home and exploring her new surroundings, including laying claim to a spot in the house where we can always find her.  She seems very happy to be with us, willingly shares food and cat toys with Miles, and alternates nights sleeping with her older human brother and sister.

Connie’s Update

Posted on: Sunday August 13

Connie has been settling in very nice. We have a  1 year old pitbull and she seems to have found a new best friend in him. She’s gotten along with every friend that she’s crossed paths with, so far! She’s been to the vet 3 times and is fully caught up on her vaccines. She’s very happy, eating full meals, and truly doesn’t stop wagging her tail. My whole family fell in love with her the day she was brought home. We’re all very happy with her improvement throughout the last 3 weeks, and we cannot wait to see what is next for her and us. I have her in a puppy class once a week, and it’s showing drastic improvement in her. 

Here are some pictures!

Teddy arrived in our house a few weeks ago and has fit right in! He’s made friends with the red lab across the street and they have frequent play dates. Teddy came to us already knowing some basic commands, and he’s keeping us healthy with his brisk walking pace. He also asks for pats and nuzzles every morning. He’s just awesome.

Holstein’s Update

Posted on: Sunday August 6

I hope the following pictures arrive to you so you can see Holstein in his home. He’s a great dog – Incredibly sweet, loves people, loves other dogs, and really loves our cats (and they are slowly acclimating to him). He’s already been to the vet. He loves to eat and chews everything, so we are finding him fun creative things to chew on while he is still teething. Let me know if you have specific questions. Thank you for your good work.

He is styling in quite well! Forgot how much energy a young cat has. He keeps us constantly entertained!! So glad to have him in our family

Lexi’s Update

Posted on: Wednesday August 2

Dear wonderful wonderful people at lost dog rescue,
My husband and I have been corresponding with you over the past month about a couple of dogs on your website. Two weeks ago this past Saturday we went to one of your adoption events and brought home the sweetest little dog named Lexi. This past Saturday marked the end of our two week trial period together,  and we couldn’t be happier.

 We celebrated with some Lost Dog pizza for the humans in the family and an extra long walk for Lexi. We are completely in love with her and are pretty sure that the feeling is mutual.

She has adjusted to becoming part of our family so beautifully, and we really feel like she is the perfect dog for us. Thank you so much for helping bring her into our lives. The work that you guys do is so important and we can tell based on our experience with Lexi (and our whole experience with you and all of your volunteers) that you do it with a lot of love.  So, on behalf of our new 4 legged baby girl and all the dogs and families whose lives that you touch, thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We appreciate you more than you know.

Otis is doing fantastic.  He has settled in amazingly quickly and is now fully part of the family/pack.  It took about a week for our current dog to get fully used to Otis being in the house but now they are best buddies. And Otis’s full personality has emerged and he is a little bundle of energy, affection and kisses and cuddles for everyone. In short, we couldn’t be happier with the adoption.
We have a wellness exam for Otis scheduled tomorrow at Banfield to make sure his overall health is good.  Obviously, if we have any questions or concerns in the future we won’t hesitate to contact Lost Dog.  
Thanks again for all you and your colleagues do.

Morgan aka Milky

Milky, now Morgan, is fantastic! Super smart, hasn’t had an accident in the house in a week. He’s very treat motivated, which is making training easy. Also, he is completely bonded with Major, our son. If I say go find your boy he runs around until he sees Major and jumps in his lap. So cute! Here he is this morning.  He knows sit, off, and we are working on stay and leave it.
