FREEPORT, Grand Bahama -- Thanks to the massive puppylift that took place earlier this month, we've received numerous pictures and emails from the rescuers and adopters. We thought the public might enjoy a sampling of these as much as we do.
It's heartwarming to know these formerly hopeless dogs and puppies now have such hope, love and happiness in their lives. We can only hope for a time in the future when these dogs will be as treasured and appreciated here at home as they are abroad.
From Angie in New Mexico on the two Dobermans and two potcake puppies she found placements for... "The dogs are all great. Dwight and Diablo are both like a couple of pups. We had Dwight for a couple days what a sweetheart. I had a hard time letting him go. But he is doing great he is with the president of Dobie rescue in Colorado. And Diablo went to a foster home here and his foster mom and dad fell in love with him and they have applied to adopt him. They have 4 fenced acres and a pond and he LOVES it. The pups are now named Slick and Mybuddy...both are very loved." From Jess in Denver (adopter of HSGB potcake Finn in 2006) on Abby... "You guys will laugh. So I took the pups to get groomed and the groomers told me that Finn is in love with Abby...even though he hates water, he climbed the stairs to get into her bath a couple of times. The little one did well, though she was a little scared...she has been such a good girl! The groomers loved her."
Coke is resting with his paws around his doggy dish working on the meal I just gave him. I forgot how little he is when I fixed his dinner and made it a regular GSD portion. Oh well, he doesn't seem to mind. Coco went for the water first and waited like the perfect lady she is to partake of her dinner. I will turn on Island music for them before turning in so they feel less lonesome for their home. They are both such great dogs. I am smiling ear to ear while writing this. Coke has already stolen my heart. He is the perfect pint-sized German Shepherd Dog."
From Jill-Ellyn (adopter of HSGB potcake Happy in 2004) on Max... "Max took 10 seconds to figure out the dog door. He loves all of "his" toys and treats. Saturday night I took him and Happy to visit Ice (another Denver potcake). Ice was, as always, wonderful. They just loved each other. Jean has a huge backyard and they played and played and then Max curled up and fell asleep on Chuck's feet. He is afraid to get into the car, but once in, is a perfect gentemen. We will keep taking rides and he will get accustomed to it. We went to see Dr. Natalie on Saturday morning. He is in good health. She thought he was just a love, which he is. He went to the Pet store and behaved perfectly. Happy gives Max nose kisses and lets him up on her bed and he follows her all around, so all is well. Max sleeps right next to me every night - he is a cuddler. Thank you for sending him to us. He is perfect for me and for Happy."
