Every Pet Needs A Home

Charlie

Charlie

We are getting this dog named Charlie tomorrow and he has a problem in his legs called Valgus. It doesn't hurt him at all; it is just an issue where his feet are on backwards. Most people would think it is sad or even gross but I understand that it is just part of what makes him, him.

It took me a long time to convince my parents that he needs a home just as any other dog does, but apparently I'm a good convincer because here I go tomorrow, going to get my new best friend!


Editor's note: Thank you for sharing this heartwarming story - how wonderful that you have been able to persuade your parents to adopt Charlie! Yes, just because a dog looks different does not mean that he does not need the same things all creatures do - to be loved and cared for properly. It sounds like he is going to get a very good home!

sadie

by maranda h.


My mom worked at a vet for 25 years. One day these people brought in a yellow lab. Her name was Sadie. She had a spot in her foot that was called gangrene - she was very ill. Well first she had mastitis and then it went down to her foot and gave her a disease called gangrene and that's one of the ways dogs get it. So she ended up having to lose her toes; she almost had too lose her leg but luckily she only lost her foot.

The vet my mom worked for tried and tried to find her a home. They just couldn't find anybody that wanted her. So she was taken care of at the vet for about two months, but now she lives a big happy life out here in the country and she's so happy she loves life as much as we love her!!!!!!!!!

Cassie, our dog with a long story.

One of my family members decided that she wanted a dog. We went to a shelter and found Cassie, a yellow lab mix. We later found out that she was part German Shepherd. They first named her Cassidy and, when we got her out of the shelter cage, she was scared and wouldn't go back in. After that, our family member took her home. She decided to call her Cassie instead of Cassidy.

The first thing we saw about her was that she would always look out the window. Whenever we came to visit her, she would be right at that window looking for us. A few weeks later, our family member couldn`t handle her and we took her into our house. We had another dog, Eli, and they got along well; all they did was play fight. Cassie would always sit on the arm of the couch and look out the window. She also sat on the couch but we soon stopped it. We gave her a foot rest to sit on so she could look out the window. Soon Eli was looking out the window too! We are now happy with Cassie by our side, protecting us at all times. They both go nuts over the UPS truck going down our road.

We think that she was beaten because when someone in our house picked up a cardboard paper towel roll and was smacking it on her hand, Cassie hung her head low as if to say "Go on, hit me, I am used to it."


Noel, it sounds like Cassie is right where she was meant to be - in a loving home where she has an important job. Thanks very much for sharing and providing us with a photo! Be sure and look for her picture on our home page during May. Jo

Kayla's Dog Story

Hello, my name is Kayla and I am a 5-year old mix between a Lab, Golden Retriever, Irish Setter and some type of terrier. My owners got me when I was 6 months old. And in that time, I've shared my house with a now 11 year old, a now 9 year old, a now 7 year old, 1 other dog-a Welsh Corgi Pembroke named Roxy,and now 2 cats:Mittens and Cody.

My 11 year old master is teaching me tricks with some dog treats called "Slop". They're REALLY delicious!

Thanks for listening to my story!

Our New House

by Nichole
(Towanda, PA, USA)

Ok well I am new here. My name is Dakota and I am a Black Lab Retriver mix (at least that is what they told my mom). I am 6 months old and came from Columbia, South Carolina. I lived in a shelter there for about 3 weeks before i was adopted. I had to go see a doctor. I was really sick - I had kennel cough, giardia and worms (talk about miserable).

But my dad is in the Army and had to go away for a year so my mom and human brothers and sister moved up where my mom grew up. We now live in Towanda, PA. We have a big yard and I love to run with the kids. I like riding in the car and chewing on anything I can find. I hope you all enjoyed my story and hope you have a great day!!!!
