Sabrina and Samantha’s Updates

Posted on: Thursday December 11

Family campingDear Lost Dog,

We wanted to email to say THANK YOU for our Lost Dog – Sabrina – and to give you an update on how she is doing.  We adopted Sabrina three years ago on December 10.  She was six months old, and when she came out of transport, she was covered in vomit.  Obviously, we loved her immediately.  =)
Sabrina Goggles
She has grown into a beautiful, healthy, and spunky dog.  She is certainly spoiled – but only in the good ways.  She gets lots of treats, fancy dog food, pets, and adventures.  She has a bunch of doggie friends in the neighborhood, and she often has them over to play.  In March, my parents adopted a Lost Dog – Carol, now named Samantha.  She and Sabrina adore each other; they are definitely best friends.
Sabrina and SamanthaSabrina loves going hiking and getting to chase squirrels in the woods.  She has been on a bunch of vacations.  Her favorite is the beach, where she can run laps and scare the sea gulls.
We have been to multiple training classes.  She is so good, though we sometimes struggle with impulse control.  (But don’t we all?)  She goes to doggie daycare and has a wonderful dog walker for the days she is at home.

I can’t express how much joy she brings to us.  We just love her to pieces, and we are doing our best to give her a wonderful life.
I’ve attached a few pictures of her.
Thank you for all the work you do!  We wanted you to know that it has made a BIG difference in our lives.

Cookie’s Update

Posted on: Wednesday December 3

Cookie is now “Honey” and she is loving her new home! She loves playing with her toys and exploring new areas of the house! She has already made it up to 4.5lbs from the little 2.5lbs she weighed in at two weeks ago! She is all about snuggling up and being right next to me all the time. She has done a great job of using her litter box and hasn’t had any accidents (even when we traveled for a weekend!). I am so happy to have her to come home to, and I am so thankful that I found her. I have attached a few pictures of her for you! Thanks for checking in and have a great day!

Biscuit aka Sissy’s Update

Posted on: Monday November 24

imageJust over three months ago, we welcomed young Sissy into our home. Having had an abusive back ground, she was extremely apprehensive of everything. This included stairs creaking, the laundry machine, even the wind blowing was upsetting to her. However, in the short time that we have had her, she has become an entirely different dog!

Biscuit (we renamed her) is as sweet as can be, with a very forgiving heart. Everyone who has had the honor of seeing her as she truly is, loves her to pieces. And she loves us all back with every essence of her being! She also has the best friend a skittish dog could ask for! Our older beagle, by the name of Coconut (who we also got from Lost Dog 10 years ago) is as lazy and as loving as can be. Biscuit will try to climb into Coconut’s lap, which makes for a rather comical situation!

As Biscuit has come out her shell, we have gotten a taste for her playful personality. She is extraordinarily fast, and loves to throw her toys up into the air, with a happy bark! She is so very, very fast, and loves long walks through our neighborhood.
We are so thankful that Lost Dog helped us find the perfect pup for our family. We love her so much!

Stanley aka Leon’s Update

Posted on: Sunday November 16

A little over a year ago, we adopted a very polite little puppy named Stanley (AKA Leon). Nothing has brought us more joy than having him in our household and lives. He is smart, sweet, and loves tons of kisses. He’s not very little anymore (he weighs about 95lbs) but is still full of energy and love. He loves his long walks in the woods and playing with his buddies at the park. Stanley brought so much love into our lives and we can’t thank you enough for bringing us all together!

Harley’s Update

Posted on: Thursday November 6

Dear Lost Dog and Cat Rescue Foundation friends,

A little over two years ago, we brought home our first rescue: an energetic and goofy, monstrous but lovable, German Shepherd/Rottweiler mix that has captured our hearts and taken over my bed at night. Last year we were skeptical that she would wear the XXXL crocodile costume that we purchased because of her initial reaction to a training collar, but she reveled in it. This year, I decided to take the Harley-Croc on a walk throughout the neighborhood to show her off. The epiphany-like results are below!

Teddy aka Manning’s Update

Posted on: Thursday November 6

Hi Lost Dog!

I wanted to give you an update on how I’m doing with my new family. I was adopted back in July, and although I didn’t want to leave my brothers and sisters, I was pretty excited to leave with my two humans. They love to take me on long walks and even allow me to cuddle with them on the couch. I play all day with other dogs but equally like nap time. I’m so happy with my humans that I can’t wait to wake them up every morning for snuggles and playtime! Thanks Lost Dog for helping me find my furever home!

Ferra aka Fera’s Update

Posted on: Wednesday October 29

Moe and Fera 1We adopted Fera just over two weeks ago and this picture was taken
after she had been with us after only 3 days.  Ferra (we added an R)
has adjusted well to our Puggle Moe who was adopted from PWC Animal
Shelter last year. :-)

Ferra and Moe have been awesome together and we love having her as a
part of our family and can’t believe how well it’s worked out.  She’s
given Moe and us great companionship and much love which we try and
return to her!

Thanks to Lost Dog and Cat Rescue and especially to Ann who was her
Foster Mom, because we just can’t imagine being without her now!

River aka Sable’s Update

Posted on: Monday October 20

river 3Hi,

I thought you might like to know that we are in love with Sable, and she is doing great after just 1 week in her new home! We re-named her River, after our favorite NFL quarterback, and she has 2 new ferret friends. There is a picture attached of her laying in front of the ferret cage – she loves to sit and watch and sniff her new little buddies. river 1river 2

She already has enjoyed several long runs with us, enjoyed a local park, and met another dog our family (they got along well). My family and friends commented that she is one of the most well-behaved dogs they have ever seen and has an amazingly cheerful temperament. Currently, we are learning how to play fetch with a ball and how to stay and come when called. All of us are extremely happy we picked her! Thanks for such a wonderful pet.
