This is a picture of Granger (formerly Joey when we adopted him from your rescue). He goes everywhere with us and has decided to start driving as you can see in the photo. He is truly a wonderful dog and has added so much to our lives. He is loved by all that meet him and he loves everyone and everything in return. He is truly a gentle soul. Can’t imagine how he ended up in a rescue but overjoyed that he is ours. Thank you for our loving fur baby. John and Connie **Thought you should know that Granger (Joey) passed away almost a year ago from spleen cancer. They were able to remove his spleen but unfortunately it ruptured during the surgery. We did follow it up with 5 sessions of chemo and he was a trooper through it all. We gave him the best summer and love throughout. He passed peacefully while we held him just before Labor Day. He was a wonderful friend and we miss him immensely. I am crying for him as I write this. We have since taken in another Aussie(Captain) that belonged to a neighbor that has been fighting cancer and wanted him to have a family that would care for him. We had planned to return him to them after she recovered from a bone marrow transplant but it doesn’t look like she will survive. We also have a one year old border collie named Ranger. Both dogs are balls of energy. Thank you once again for bringing Granger into our lives. His memory is still dear to us.


Happy Holidays! Just thought you would like to see how Jeremy is doing. He loves being outside on his daily walks and loves car rides too. He has many outfits and has fallen in love with plush toys. He eats well and loves drinking water & even got a pet water fountain for Christmas that he loves! He is such a cuddle bug and we rescued him, but he definitely rescued us! Here's some pictures from over the 6+ months he's been with us. Hope you enjoy them!


Our JJ, now known as Sadie, in her forever home and all ready for Christmas. She looks like she's excited for Santa's visit and hoping for treats and toys!


This is Jax - we adopted him from Roses Rescue in March of 2009. At that time, Jax was dealing with some separation anxieties from being passed around so much and it took him quite a while to realize that he was never going to be left behind or rejected again. He is now thriving and is happy and secure. He knows he is loved and returns that love and loyalty every minute of the day.
