WOOF! received the following update from Gertie's new family: She is doing well. She follows Ellen around the house – sound familiar? Over time she has become more comfortable with me. On days when I am working at home alone, she will spend the day with me. She loves to walk – she understands “walk” when we ask her, and she will sit at the door and bark to go out. She is still adjusting to her new home, but she seems very happy. Every day I think she feels more comfortable and “at home” here.
Sophie (formerly Shelby) snoozes with her new siblings in her forever home.
Alan and his new pup Mikey are completely smitten with each other. In fact, the whole family loves this precious little guy.
Bailey (right) is settling into his new home and has found a great friend in his new pal Apollo (left). These two pups can't get enough of each other. Bailey goes everywhere with his new family, already feels comfortable sleeping in bed with his parents, and even the cats don't mind having this guy around. Another WOOF! success story.
Sophie (pictured in the middle) loves her new family and canine companions. As they say, three's a party!
Winnie (formerly Twinkie) is now receiving plenty of care and attention from her new owners and we are told that she enjoys roaming the backyard of her suburban NJ home. Winnie had no reservations sleeping in bed with her new parents on the first night at her forever home. Love at first sight!
Gertie's new parents, Ellen and Paul, report that she has been enjoying exploring her new home since being adopted. In their note to WOOF!, this couple wrote "thank you for bringing her into our lives and the hard work (that) goes into rescuing all the dogs you help find new families."
Dakota’s new mother tells WOOF! that her darling girl is one of the cutest, sweetest, most loving pups. She is fond of everyone including other dogs, children, and doormen. Dakota has already made two new friends in her building, a husky pup and Shepard. Dakota’s mom said that her new canine companion brings her so much joy, love, giggles and non-stop fun every day and she will forever be grateful to WOOF! for her new dog.
Oliver's new family sent WOOF! this picture of their rescued pup (left) with his new best friend Scooby (right). Simply adorable!
Brandy's mom Gayle sent WOOF! the following update about her precious girl:
"Brandy is doing great, I love her so much. She has learned to "talk"---at least what she thinks is talking---and I've gotten very good at guessing what she is saying. When I get it right she does her "happy dance" by turning in a little circle. She has become a very confident little girl, which is wonderful to see. She enjoys being with other dogs now and definitely knows how to handle herself. I'm constantly laughing at her antics.
July 12 will be one-year since Brandy and I became family; she will be nine-years-old. I love her with all my heart and I'm grateful to have her in my life. She is my little shadow, we make quite the team!"
WOOF! rescued Cappy, this beautiful pitbull, after his owners could no longer care for him. Cappy (whose name is now Maverick) was placed in a foster home and his foster family fell in love with this adorable fellow and decided to adopt him. Maverick’s new family has a few other dogs and he loves playing with them and cuddling with his new owners. Giving up an animal can be a very difficult and painful decision, but the family who could no longer keep this dog praised WOOF! for their kindness and care. Maverick’s former owner said that “I am at complete peace now!! I love him and it feels sooooo wonderful to know that his new family loves him too!! I will be referring EVERYONE to your rescue!!!”
Ollie's new family is thrilled about the addition to their household. They told WOOF! that Ollie loved meeting Scooby, a good friend's dog, and spending time with another animal did wonders for him. Their pup has been exploring his new house, playing vigorously with his toys, and loves going outdoors.
Oliver's parents report that their handsome little fellow is doing great. His health has improved, his appetite is hearty, and he's happy and active. Oliver greets everyone in the street and is the "love of their lives".
Biscuit's parents, Matt and Jill, departed NYC in a motor home and will be taking their four-legged companion on a road trip to every state. One of their first stops was Portland, Maine. Matt and Jill report that Biscuit is loving the 24/7 attention that he now receives from them and he also really likes meeting other dogs as they travel across America.
Lucy's mother Marcy reports that "Lu is doing really well with us. As I predicted, she runs the house! She's been eating well and sleeping in the bed with us. She's a great little guard dog too."
Dakota's new family sent this picture of their precious girl after a trip to the groomer.
