    Daisy is a puppy, probably part wire haired terrier. She was running along with the big dogs at the apartment complex where my Mom lives and I was afraid she'd get run over, so I took her. She's probably 3 months old, had fleas and a scar on her back. My nephew found...

    My Dog Pepper

    I rescued my dog Pepper back in 2010. She was just this beagle mix bundled up in a cage, scars covering her muzzle. I had finished reading a book called Shiloh, and when I saw her, I begged my mom to save her. She would have been put down the next day! I had to save her! She was...

    Daphne

    Daphne was 5 months old when I got her from the ASPCA, she was a quiet dog, very gentle, very loving.  I choose her because she wasn't as hyper as her sister.  I decided that I wanted a dog because my Siamese was getting old, I knew he wouldn't make it...

    Jack

    I had a black Pomeranian named Jack that I had rescued from a horrible situation. He was kicked like a football (in front of my face!). I told them if they had no more respect for him, I would love to have him...he jumped in my lap as if to say "I'm outta here, this is my new...

    Who Still Buys Puppies From Petstores?

    I love dogs. Through my love I rescue animals that I will not let go to just anyone. I resent puppymills and all who support them. I resent brokers also. I resent breeders who breed for the new designer breed because it brings them more money all the while creating a nightmare of...
