“Before getting L.T. I lost my job after working there for twenty-two years.

L.T. has been my support.

He gets me out and walking every day.

I’ve lost fifteen pounds as well as my depression, since getting L.T.”

“He was there with his sister, but she was already spoken for.

We spent close to four hours with him–my entire family sat with him to make sure it was going to work.

He was gentle with my granddaughter and he got along with my daughter’s dog, so we adopted him.

After five months we got an email from Paws Crossed asking if we would be interested in setting up a play date with L.T. and his sister.

We were happy to have the sibling puppies socialize together.

We met at a dog park in Westchester and they got along beautifully.

They looked identical, and after ten minutes they were inseparable.”

“L.T. is short for Logan Taylor.  There is another Logan in my apartment building, so I started calling him, L.T.

I was recently out of work, or semi-retired and I now have the time to devote to a puppy.

My family and I went to a rescue shelter in Westchester, called Paws Crossed.

My daughter and I found L.T.

He is a hound, terrier and golden mix.

We chose him because of his personality.

He was mellow.  He was four and a half months old and he was so serene.”

“He loves to hike, camp, and swim.

We moved back to the city after a year and he seemed to bounce right back.

He adjusts well wherever he is.

Having Jack has made me more open to talking to strangers and making connections.

I keep in touch with friends I made in Colorado and it’s been two years since we left.”

Samantha, the Pit Bull Terrier/Shitzu mix rescue, who was a very sick puppy (part 4)

“Samantha is gentle, playful and obedient.

Her only problematic quality is that she doesn’t eat.

I brought a bag filled with different brands of dog food we tried with no success and our veterinarian told us we had exhausted most of our options but that we should try Stella & Chewy’s or Fresh Pet.

We had success with Fresh Pet, and top it off with the dehydrated Stella & Chewy’s.”

“I didn’t have my wallet or any identification because we hadn’t planned on adopting a dog, yet.

My boyfriend agreed to adopt her and he used is identification and paid for her, but we agreed that she would be my responsibility.

At first she was so sick that people couldn’t understand why we chose her.

My father said she was so ugly because she was skin and bones and coughing constantly.

Once she recovered, he too fell in love with her.”
