A Dual Adoption

This wonderful family adopted not one but two WOOF! rescue pups.  Bailey and Winnie (formerly Twinkie) are now receiving plenty of care and attention from their new owners and these dogs enjoy roaming the backyard of their suburban NJ home.  Bailey and Winnie had no reservations sleeping in bed with their owners on the first night at their forever home.  Love at first sight!

Gertie Is Adopted!

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 Goes To A New Home

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.

Brandy's One Year Adoption Anniversary

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!"

A Foster Family Falls In Love

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!!!”

Alex (Now Oliver) is Adopted

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.

Biscuit's Road Trip Across America

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.

Princess Allie Lounging on a Spring Day

Allie’s new mom Barbara sent the following update to WOOF:  “Allie and (her brother) Riley love being outside on days like these!  Riley lying in the grass.... Allie on the couch (of course!) She spends the early spring chasing rabbits, which I'm forever grateful for so that we don't end up with bunny nests in our yard. She takes her job very seriously!   We love her more than we can ever tell you. We are still so grateful that you allowed us to bring our princess home!”

Benji (Now Parker) Has Been Adopted!

Parker’s new mom, Alison, writes that  "He's very happy.  I feel like I've always had him.”  She goes on to say that Parker loves the kids in his new neighborhood.  In fact, he is always excited to say hello to the children during his morning walks.   His young neighbors greet him by screaming "There's Parker! Hey Parker".  He gets so excited and runs over and gives everyone kisses.  Even the bus driver knows his name and waves to Parker each morning.

Biscuit, World Traveler

Biscuit is doing great! He's become a traveler. We've taken him to the Hamptons, a rural cabin in PA, and to Woodstock. He loved all the trees and the fresh air and dirt. During a hike in the woods, our friends said that "the beast in Biscuit has awoken!" We took him on an airplane to visit Jill's folks in January and he did great! He charmed everyone at the airport - even the crusty security guys couldn't help but smile when I walked through the metal detectors. He was almost completely quiet during the flight except for one bark when he was startled by the landing gear going down! And he was happy to meet his dog-in-laws in Nevada.

Biscuit loves the snow! He loves going to our backyard and tromping through it and eating large chunks of ice! And when I'm walking him in the neighborhood, he often jumps on mountains of snow on the sidewalk - just because he can. Then proceeds turn the snow yellow - which he seems to enjoy as much as a 5 year old boy! Our love and excitement for this dog has only increased - he's so smart and is becoming very obedient at the important things. We've taken him to Fort Greene part during off-leash hours and he does so well - he loves the freedom, but always stays nearby and comes back to us as soon as we call his name.
