Any story with "dog" and "rescue" in it is wonderful and joyful to me.

Sweet old thing, good for her. I took in an old messed-up stray cat with health problems once, and he was so grateful. They really do know how lucky they are; you can see it in this dog's eyes. It is a shame how many animals (and people) have such hard lives.

So... the dog's been waiting since New Year's Day, 2000?

We drove from PA to Atlanta to rescue a og from a high kill shelter. He was the meanest nastiest thing and in very poor health (though the shelter said he was medically fantastic!).

3K and a few tense moments later, he was the sweetest ball of fur ever. Wouldn't sit to save his life (laydown, roll over, playful, just no sitting)

Absolutely the best 3K I ever spent

/spent 3K on one of my dogs -- had to drive from Montana to WA to get him an MRI only to learn that he had a tumor growing INSIDE his spinal cord :-(  Went straight from Pullman back to Missoula to have him euthanized (he would only get worse and was already losing control of his hind legs) but don't resent a dime of the money I spent:  at least I knew then that there was nothing that could be done.  RIP Quinlan

Sorry to hear about your puppy. It is always a tough decision when you have to put them down. 8 years or so after we rescued the one I mentioned, we had to put him down because of cancer and tumors. Tough call but in his best interest. It could only get worse..

Oh so dusty here.

The worst of it is the poor pup had to wait ten years to get the care, love and attention needed. Even though somebody knew she was needing it.

The store owner couldn't make a phone call after the first month? That's lame.

[shrug]

Acupuncture does in fact work quite well on animals. It may only be the calming atmosphere, soothing touch, and relaxing massage, but I've seen dogs with quite bad arthritis get considerable relief from acupuncture treatments.

Why that should be is anyone's guess, but it seems to help them.

Such a handsome Santa's elf!  Was he a Shar-pei/cross?

Thank you for the condolences:  if I wasn't on dial-up I'd post some pictures of Quinlan:  he was quite the handsome man.  And that's not just his Mom's opinion:  people used to stop and admire him.  Found him injured on the side of the highway and he had an injured foot that never quite healed right.  But at least he had a year and a half of being a spoiled boy and I held him in my arms when he crossed the Rainbow Bridge.

It definitely improved my dog's quality of life when she fighting cancer.  I knew that it wouldn't cure the cancer but it definitely made a difference.  Wasn't going to post about it because I wasn't in the mood for an argument but since you spoke up....thanks for that.

Obviously all the dogs in the world have been rescued and there's no reason to make people aware that there's living things out there that need help. Thank you for sparing us all the potential of reading something a year old. You may now retire to another needless duty no one asked you to perform, like grammar nazi or facebook stalker.

If you ever feel like your eyes need to be flushed, watch any of the Hope For Paws rescue videos.

Here's the most recent one -  http://youtu.be/7jdyP1R0es8 - about a pit mix that was used as a bait dog.
 
2013-09-13 09:15:30 AM  

chookbillion: They really do know how lucky they are; you can see it in this dog's eyes


I got a dog like that.  It belonged to the neighbor that moved and left it behind.  It is a pit mix of some sort.   It took months before it would allow us to pet it.   I kept trying by putting cool whip bowls of food and water out.    She was covered in ticks and mange and was really bony.    One cold, rainy November evening we came home and she was cowering against the house.    When I opened the door, she followed us up the stairs and into the house and has lived inside since.    I got her a towel and a blanket.   She wouldn't come any further into the house but laid down right inside the door.    Our shelter rescue dog   slept with her all night that first night.

It was several months and many vet appointments before we got her straight.  Every evening she greets me at the door like one of the dogs that hasn't seen their owner for 6 months.   You sure can see how a dog is doing by their eyes.  She is never more than a couple feet away from me when I am home.    When she sleeps, she needs to be touching me.

What a wonderful story....bless them for helping that pupperoni!!!

All the rescue stories and pics here have got the dust flying but I am so grateful to each of you for sharing.  I rescued two dalmatians, one (Rocky) was being used as a bait dog in a fighting ring in Alabama and one (Taylor aka Sparky) was found at 5 weeks of age, chained to a bed in a back bedroom during a drug bust.  Rocky went blind at 6 years of age but spent another five years with me and Sparky was born deaf and just went to The Rainbow Bridge this past New Years' Eve at the age of 12 (almost made it to 13).

/Worst farking New Years' Eve EVER
//Came down with the flu later on that day
///Was pathetic laying in bed, crying "I feel like crap and I miss my dog!"
