Happy as a bell is Mr. Levi. He is clean, healthy and so anxious for his flight to Texas on November 18 and his bright new beginnings. His Puerto Rico foster says 'My heart is going with you.' Mr. Levi was rescued near the beach of Levittown in Puerto Rico. He ran through the cars of the avenue following a car. I saw it from the rearview mirror of my car. I was frozen thinking he would be impacted by one of the moving cars. I knew I had to stop and get him out of there. I park and open my trunk where I always have dog food and called him. Even he was very far away and I did not know he would listen to me and if he would come to me. But he saw me and ran to my side. He moved his tail of joy, I approached him and he kissed me. It was then I knew he was going with me. Mr. Levi went directly to the veterinarian where all the physical and medical exams were done. He was healthy. During all that time Mr. Levi proved to be a magnificent dog. Affectionate, playful and above all showed that he likes to give hugs. Another sweet pup who was lucky enough to leave Puerto Rico and get to the mainland in hopes of finding his furever home of safety and comfort. Oh, this boy is so sweet and thankful for the chance of the good life off the streets.

My name is Myles. I am a beautiful pit bull terrier mix found in a filthy backyard with no grass; we were tied up and used for breeding only. Luckily we were rescued from the deplorable conditions. Mom and the pups found their homes but sweet little me was so excited and craving attention that is was a bit overwhelming for some. I had lots of energy and no manners or socialization to contain all the excitement. I worked with a trainer and made great progress but I still need reminders and reinforcement from my training; but I have been told I am super smart and a quick learner. I would love an active family, I love to be outdoors to run and play, I would love to learn to play fetch too. You will have so much fun with me. Myles is a very energetic dog and full of life; he gets really excited but we have been working with him to redirect his energy with commands such as sit, come, down, return. By teaching Myles basic cues and manners it helps set a foundation for communication that will give him much needed structure, clear boundaries, as well as confidence in understanding what is being asked of him and something to help focus his attention on. We recommend a home with older kids as he still needs to work on his jumping and mouthy excitement (non aggressive). He still needs more work on leash training. He is crate trained. Myles is ready to work and so eager to please; he just craves attention as you would expect from a dog that has never received it. He needs a family willing to work with him as he learns the world. He loves people and will bond with you quickly. A person that really wants to help him and see him become the dog he deserves and wants to be; he has so much potential. With a home that will give him the undivided attention, physical exercise and regular training his attention seeking behavior will subside and that initial investment of time, patience and consistency will be rewarded. We have already noticed huge progress with him. This guy is so ready to find his furever companion to bond with.

This is your lucky day! If you are reading this note, then you are considering fostering or adopting Peggy Sue, a truly special girl. Clearly, her past was somewhat rough, but she has healed physical and emotionally. Similar to most dogs, Peggy Sue gives her love unconditionally. The character trait that makes her so unique is her gratitude. She is so low maintenance because she is very content to be with her humans, feeling safe and secure. The neighborhood kids (all ages) know and love her. I live on a cul-de-sac with young kids. Peggy Sue does not mind bikes, scooters, Barbie cars and kid noise. The toddlers come up to her and touch her. She is so excited to see people when we are walking in the neighborhood. I use the word “walk” but it really is more of a slow stroll. She enjoys taking in the sights, sounds and smells of the neighborhood. She will ignore other dogs unless they are dog reactive, then we usually steer clear. Peggy Sue did not have the opportunity to have a doggy companion while fostering with me. We occasionally had my son’s pup at the house and Peggy Sue adjusted, but was not happy sharing her humans. I think she would be best as an only dog. Peggy Sue is very observant, smart and trainable. She thrives in a secure environment where she was knows she is loved. I hope and pray that she finds a home that will love and cherish her the way she deserves. Peggy Sue has come a long way from the days of misery. She is a 'happy hippo'; we call her. She is low energy and just wants to be loved and know she is safe from her tortuous days. She loves people and tries to say Hi to everyone on her walks. Are you looking for a big love bug that you can spoil her final years; she will be eternally grateful. As they lifted her massive body from the car she looked at me, her saggy eyes told the story of not days or months, but YEARS of abuse and neglect, I literally fell to my knees and gently ran my hands over her scalped ears and callused skin trying to take in how? Why? Every inch of her body screams abuse from neglect to sexual torture. As I tried to digest her splayed feet and twisted sagging nipples to the bloodied cysts that cover her underbelly, I could not contain the floodgates of my inner soul and I let it out because sometimes even those of us that have seen the worst of the worst cannot handle the worst of them all. Peggy Sue simply leaned against me as if to console ME, like the Momma she was to litter after litter she felt the need to let me know in her own way that everything was going to be alright. Without a word she followed me to the shower and calmly sat there as I began to bath her and wash away the past, she closed her eyes while I massaged her skin and like a junkie finally getting their fix we both felt a little slice of heaven. Peggy Sue slept the sleep of the newly rescued with the softest jammie's, pillows and blankets caressing her tired body. I slept next to her in case she woke, which she did, but only to lick my hand or face before falling back into a deep slumber. Peggy Sue was the first appointment of the day and immediately the vets furrowed brow let me know that all was not well with Peggy Sue. My stomach turned to knots as they told me she needs to be prepped for surgery for the concerning lumps and cysts. As they took her in the back room once again her eyes spoke volumes as she looked back at me on the gurney... it's ok they seemed to say... it's all. Ok. Peggy Sue has come along way and is doing 100% better. She did not wait all these years to be saved to not be ok. She is a LOVE. She is devoted without any expectations. She is very smart and trainable. Sweet, docile, non-demanding. As much as she has endured, you can't break a dog like this. This brick house is solid, her well nature is in order folks. She is absolutely adorable. We hope that Peggy Sue inspires you, she is strong and she is here to teach us something-- to see animals differently. She would be a wonderful addition to a family with kids. She loves attention but is fine just being there in the room with you. She would be great for a single person or couple because she loves feeling safe and wanted. She prefers not to be with cats ... She is grateful for anything she receives. show less
