TALLULAH, THE LABRADOR RETRIEVER/WHIPPET RESCUE DOG (PART 4)

FullSizeRender-329

“I just graduated from undergraduate school in May and came to NY a month ago for graduate school.

We rented a truck and drove up to New York City for 16 hours.

It’s a big transition coming to New York City from the suburbs of Alabama, but Tally is doing great.

She is occasionally skittish around the noises of the city, but she loves the energy here.”

I’ve taken her on the train a few times and she is relaxed.

She has no problem with the subway.

“I’ve always loved dogs.

I got Tally when I was in college, two years ago.

I got another dog first, but he was already sick with heart worm.

I didn’t want him to die in the shelter, so I adopted him and got him treated, but he died six months later from a grand mall seizure, related to his heart worm.

I knew I wanted to get another dog, so I waited until I went back home to Florence, Alabama and went to the local shelter, where I met Tally.”

PENNY, THE DACHSHUND MIX FROM RESCUE DOGS ROCK (PART 4, SHE SAID)

“Penny has given our family an extra sweetness, like adding a jewel to a necklace.

She added a new dimension to our relationship and family unit.

We are her only two people–we made a promise and it’s a responsibility we love.

She came to us with some health problems, digestive issues; she couldn’t keep any food down, and we worried about her.

She had to have an endoscopy and it took several months to resolve.

Thankfully, she is fine.”

“Rescue Dogs Rock, saw a video of her posted on another rescue organization site based out of North Carolina, called A Shelter Friend, and pulled her to bring her to New York City.

Grateful Doggies is a shuttle service that brings rescue dogs via plane and car to their perspective homes and rescue groups for free.

So many caring groups were responsible for saving Penny from being put down in a kill shelter.”

OTIS, THE COMICAL PUG (PART 1)

“I sold my big house in New Jersey where I raised my children and my pets died about a year before that.

I moved to New York City with my husband after he retired, leaving my friends and family and needed a new wingman (so to speak).

I wanted a dog that was still dog-sized, but easy enough to travel with.

After I moved and began to walk around the neighborhood, I  was drawn to the Pug breed.”

“It was night time so we brought him back to our cabin and he slept the whole night.

We brought him to the vet the next morning and he cut the prong collar off of his neck with bolt cutters.

We gave him antibiotics and took him back to our cabin rental, where we weren’t supposed to have dogs.

He slept for the next three days.”

“I actually found Smoky in the Smoky Mountains.

He was walking at dusk on a road with a mountain on one side and a cliff on the other, so there was nowhere for him to walk but on the road.

I thought he was a dog who was lost, but he didn’t have any tags.

He had a pinch collar that had grown into his neck.”

Samantha, the Pit Bull Terrier/Shitzu mix rescue, who was a very sick puppy (part 2)

“I wanted to go to an animal shelter,  just to pet the dogs.

We went to the CACC (Center for animal Care and Control), where we saw Samantha and fell in love.

She was extremely underweight.

She was half her weight now and she had a bad case of Bordatella, but she was also so sweet and innocent.

She just needed medical attention and love.

When we took her for a walk she was eager to please us, as she

was completely obedient and already housebroken.

I knew after the walk that I wanted her.”
