Meet Our Foster Pup

Just hangin' on the patio. Life is definitely looking up!

Sasha is here and we are so happy to have her! Yes, Dave and I finally did it. We have a foster dog staying with us.

This sweet little two yr old chocolate lab mix was rescued from a high kill shelter by PAWS New England. When her southern foster mom first came across her at the shelter Sasha was terrified to the point of immobility. Grossly obese due to an untreated thyroid condition, this sweet creature is learning to trust and be loved. Thanks to the heroics of her first foster mom, Sasha is coming out of her shy little shell. The wonders of modern medicine are getting her health and weight back on track(she’s already lost so much weight!). For our part, our goal is to nurture Sasha’s self-confidence and to help her feel better so that she will be her best self for her forever home.

Chewies are good!

This is Ruth. And Maisie, too.

Recently a local dog rescue, PAWS New England needed to find a home for two deaf and blind brothers, Truth and Argus.  Since we have two deaf/blind pups, as well, we reached out to the rescue in hopes that sharing our story would help encourage potential adopters to consider dogs like these.  The story of the wonders of our girls can be read in full on the PAWS blog.

Ruth and Maisie, our deaf and blind Aussies, are living it up regardless of their disabilities.

Whether or not our little write up helped to get Truth and Argus adopted, I can’t say, but I am very happy to report that they are in a wonderful new home.  And at PAWS you will find innumerable wonderful canines, just in case you are looking to expand your family.
