“The most difficult time was at the end of the summer of 2016.

Preston got up one morning and was lethargic.

We knew something was wrong and took him to the veterinarian.

They did some tests for Lyme Disease and other illnesses but they didn’t find anything in his bloodworm.

They thought it was an orthopedic injury.

Over the next two days he deteriorated rapidly and one morning he coughed up blood and his chest was all black and blue.”

“For me, Tina is the first taste of having to be responsible for another being and loving it unconditionally.

My wife, Tina and I feel like a proper family unit, now.

Having a dog is a beautiful and enriching experience. “

“We were at a point in our lives my husband and I had a lot of love to give.

We were looking for the right recipient.

We decided to get a dog, because I kept talking about it.

There was never a perfect time, because we both work full time and travel a lot.

We wanted to help a dog in need, so we looked into Korean dog rescue because they are commonly euthanized or sold for the meat trade.”

“My wife is the one who wanted Mabel.

We are in a place where we are financially stable and wanted to share our home with someone or something.

We don’t have kids, yet.

We knew we wanted to get a rescue dog.

My wife and I are both Korean, so we looked into Korean Canine Rescue.”

” My family is retired from the military.

Being in the military, we brought Schuler and Winner everywhere we went.

Dogs are family to us, and leaving them behind was never an option.

After Winnie went back to Michigan, it was my first time being dog-less., and it felt like there was a huge hole in my life.

I started looking at rescue sites, and it seemed like there were so many in the city.

I knew I wanted to adopt a dog.”

“My husband and I fell in Love with Nellie.

We went to an event at ARF (the Animal Rescue Fund).  We had been talking about getting a dog forever, and we knew we were both vulnerable.

We never got to hear the speakers at the celebration of the animals because there was a van with the adoptable animals in it and I made a B-line for the van.

Nellie put her nose against the front of her crate and started talking to me.  I summoned my husband and he asked if we could walk her around the grounds. We took her for a walk and she was very happy to be out of her confinement.

My husband picked her up and she melted in his arms.  He was overcome with tears and we knew we wanted to be her parents.”
