On New Years Eve – I saw Jill’s networking picture at Lancaster.
She is the cutest pug/boston Terrier mix. But I didn’t know anyone who could pull from Lancaster and that shelter is very high kill and also three hours away from where I live.
I called the shelter and they said she was super urgent and they couldn’t guarantee she would be there by morning.
I called my friends at Gone to the Dogs rescue and they found someone to pull her for me.
He took her to rescue oasis, a boarding facility nearby. We couldn’t find transport down to us but another rescue, Sunny Skies, agreed to take her and they adopted her out shortly after she arrived.
Gorgeous Tilly was also a pug/boston mix. She was at Kern County. When Gone to the Dogs went to pull another dog, they saw her and pulled her for us. She stayed in foster for a few weeks with Trudy and then she was transported down to Katella.
We received 10 applications on her in the first week. She was adopted out to a great family and now has a Boxer brother.
Shiloh and Mimi were both on Baldwin Park’s networking lists.
Shiloh was a sweet chihuahua mix puppy with a broken leg. The shelter paid to get her leg fixed.
He was adopted shortly after we pulled him and now has a great life with his human brother.
We pulled Mimi because we had someone contact us who was interested in her.
But once we pulled her the adopter backed out! We didn’t have a foster for her so she went into boarding.
But boarding was very stressful for her. She was extremely scared there. Luckily, our rescue friends at Collar of Hope found an adopter for her so we transferred her up to them.
Adorable Mandrake had no interest. He was on the Baldwin Park Shelter, and this cute puggle/dachshunds mix stole our heart.
Shawna saved him with Zoey and Galahad, both of whom were adopted almost immediately.
We were baffled why this cute guy didn’t get any interest. One lady applied and backed out when we couldn’t guarantee he was housetrained. So poor little Mandrake spent both Christmas and New Years in boarding at the vet.
But 2012 is Mandrake’s year. We received an application from a wonderful family. Mandrake was adopted and they absolutely love him and are willing to give this puppy the attention he needs and deserves.
Oso was also at Baldwin Park.
We immediately fell in love with his shelter pictures. Look at that smile! We don’t just rescue pugs – we rescue any breed of dog that is urgent. And Oso was running out of time so Shawna pulled him.
He is so sweet. He is a corgi/spaniel mix. We received an application on him right away and adopted him out to a lovely couple. Oso now has a corgi/spaniel sister named Bella.
Yesterday we spent Dia de los Muertos in Old Town. For those of you unfamiliar with the holiday – it has nothing to do with devils or witchcraft. It is a day to celebrate your loved ones who have passed. Old town had a bunch of amazing altars.
I also bought this amazing painting by artist John de Jesus.
