“I found his picture through a rescue group in Tennessee called Moonshine Dog Rescue.

If you committed to buying one of their dogs, they promised transporting the dog up east.

Once I committed to adopting Jack, another rescue group called Alpha dog Transport brought him from the scout, it a tractor trailer full of dogs from different rescue groups to a designated are off route 80 in New Jersey.”

“There were about 40 people waiting in the lot for their dogs to arrive.

After bringing Isabel home, I immediately thought we were lucky.

We wound up with a dog who was pretty responsive to house training.

She had accidents like any other dog, but she was quick to learn.

Since getting Isabel, I think I have risen to the challenge of becoming a responsible dog owner; by walking, feeding, training, and just being there for her.

This is a healthy stepping stone in my life.”

“We both grew up with dogs, so we knew what we were in for.

We went to a parking lot in Morristown, New Jersey at 3 A.M.

That was when Alpha Dog Transport rolled in.

I remember thinking it would be a small van that would be used for transport, and then there was a semi-truck full of rescue dogs heading to their forever homes waiting for us.”

“I always have a good time with her.

Once in late October, I took her on a hiking trip with me and she had the time of her life.  She was fetching sticks down the trail, digging in the dirt and running until she was exhausted.  My boyfriend and I love to hike, so she is a great match.

She’s been a bonding experience; she’s our fur baby.  She makes us feel like are a family, not just a couple.”

About a month and a half later he called and said he just got a litter of lab mix puppies.     We saw the photos and decided it was a perfect time to get one for ourselves, too.           We got two sisters.  They get to play together often, living in the same city.

I told her my boyfriend and I were coming to her neighborhood for Bloody Mary’s.   When I got there I asked her to come downstairs and let us in.  She saw her puppy wrapped in a bow and kissed it.  She was overwhelmed with joy and began to cry.  I let her have her moment and then I showed her Isabelle, her puppy’s sister.

It was one of the best moments ever.”

“My boyfriend and I were looking for a puppy for my best friend for her birthday.   She has a boxer that’s 8 and wanted a companion for her dog as well as herself (for when her dog passes).

She is a maternal person and enjoys caring for others.

She left it up to me to pick out her dog.  She wanted it to be a surprise.

We definitely wanted to get her a rescue.

We found a boxer lab mix and filled out the forms.

A few days before the puppy was supposed to be shipped from Tennessee, the man from the rescue group told me, the puppy had parvo, (a deadly virus) and didn’t survive.

He had a few puppies that weren’t right for her lifestyle, so we told him to hold on to our deposit and we would check back with him.”
