“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.”

“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.”

“Jack has taught me a lot about taking care of another being.

On stressful days, he’s what I look forward to when coming home.

A partner has to love him, in addition to loving me.

He’s part of the  package.”

“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 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.”

“I wanted a dog for years.

I used to cry because I wanted a dog so bad.

I was living in Croton-On-Hudson in a not dog friendly neighborhood and my boyfriend just moved to Manhattan.

Once we got an apartment and settled in together, it became possible for us to get a dog.

We knew we would get a dog down the road.”

Tina, the Beagle/Italian Greyhound/Terrier mix rescue from Social Tees (she said, part 3)

“We had her for three weeks and then adopted her ourselves.

We fell in love with her and started calling her, our Tina.

As a foster care giver, you are required to take them to adoption events.

I took her and she met all these potential adopters.

I cried my eyes out.

I called my husband during lunch and asked if we could adopt her, ourselves.”

Dodger, the mini-schnauzer, cairn terrier mix rescue from the NYCACC (center for animal care and control, part 5)

“Dodger loves to go hiking.

I feel comfortable letting him off leash on a trail.

He always keeps me in his eye’s view and never wanders far.

It’s almost like he’s on an invisible leash.

I had him thru my 20’s and he’s taught me a sense of responsibility.

He’s helped me get through some hard times in my life and he’s a great stress reducer.

He’s lived on both coasts with me and is always there for me.

Dodger is my family.

“I didn’t mind those things because i was ready for anything from a shelter dog.

it was love at first sight, when I met Dodger.

I am sure he was a little shy, but he was very sweet.

All he needed was a little TLC.

He’s so sensitive and has been amazing during any romantic breakups I’ve gone through.

I went through a breakup in January and he was always right next to my leg.”

“I went to look at a Chihuahua mix that was on their website, because I wanted a smaller dog, but by the time I got there, that dog had been adopted.

I looked around and saw Dodger (who wasn’t on the website).

The shelter workers didn’t think he was ready to be adopted because he was timid and wasn’t used to walking on a leash.”
