Happy News

Rudi's owners felt a bit empty without 4 paws tapping around their home. They both work from home and were really missing a dog's presence. They began the search for another and found Heidi on our website.

is she too cute or what?

Heidi is 3 years old and came to us with crystals in her urine. We had the surgery done for her (about $650 -- I'm putting that out there to help people to understand the costs sometimes involved with rescue dogs) and she was put on a special diet. She also came with the inability to tear naturally so she needs eye drops twice a day.

Frank and Terry opened their hearts and their piggy bank for her future care...and apparently, she was very excited about this because it was seemingly a match made in heaven. Shelly took in Heidi about a week ago and I was supposed to get her this coming weekend....but...she was adopted yesterday. 

What is nice about this adoption is that it is often difficult, especially in these economic times, to adopt out a dog that has special needs and they are often with us for a long period of time.

Thank you Frank and Terry for being able to open your hearts so soon after they broke with the passing of Rudi.


  1. I'm very happy for Frank and Terry--and especially Heidi. While it is true that you can't replace the one who's gone, it does help immensely with your grief to bring another life into the fold. I wish them all well.

  2. That is such a wonderful story and a happy ending for Heidi. It was so sad to hear about Rudi, but it definitely sounds like Heidi went to the perfect home :->


Thanks for sharing your thoughts...
