Rescue Dog Stories

Do you have a dog that was rescued from wherever?

We'd love to learn more about your dog's story here!

Our gorgeous GSD mix, Comet, was a rescue from the pound, while Pebble, the Chiweenie at right, was given to us at a garage sale!

As with all our dogs, they each had distinct personalities; however, both of them loved hiking in the mountains!

Service Dog Stories

1. Penny with Cooper (Photo)

2. Viki and Patches' zoo visit

Dogs that provide services for people come in all types.

They may help pick up things for someone who cannot use their arms or legs; prevent someone with balance issues from falling; calm those with mental or emotional issues; and much more.

Read about types of service dogs and/or contribute your story here

Therapy Dogs

This is a new "Share Your Dog Story" category we're working on.

We'll provide a direct link once we have the page and submission form set up!

In the meantime, simply add your therapy dog tale here.

As you may know, therapy dogs also provide a service. Among other things, they go into:

  • hospitals to help lower patient stress
  • nursing homes to help the elderly with their quality of life
  • libraries to help children with reading issues
