I have a rescue greyhound....she last raced November 2007 and is very nervous and anxious with people, though getting better. She wouldnt let me touch her body at all at first, gasped - and I feel that she was roughly treated. The kennels recognised that somehow she hd been shocked - she is starting to learn to play and be happy though..which is amazing...*big smile*......C x

Our dog Lucy is a rescue dog. We got her in Calgary Alberta but she had just come in from a shelter in Inuvik, because their shelter was too full. She is a black terri-poo and something else??? They didn't even know for sure how old she was and she was pregnant when they spayed her. Sadly, she lost 6 little puppies becuase they didn't know she was pregnant until they made the inision. She was supposed to 2 years old when we got her, but she has grown in pounds as well as height and length so we are wondering if she was about 10 months or a year. it doesn't matter. When we brought her home, she kept hiding in the closet, and it took almost two weeks until she realized she was the new porincess of the house! She is a good little girl and very affectionate. I think she knows now that she is loved and safe.

Our 3 dogs are small, medium, and my little pony. Our 8 yr old minpin came from a local breeder. #2 was Casper, a poodle mix rescued by a local group on the very day he was to be ... well, you know. He is love and exuberance on 4 legs. Want to rub a tummy? He's got one for you. He's 5. #3 spent the first three years of his life tied up in a pen in CO and doesn't know about toys. We named him Conan, but he is really a sweetheart and has learned to tolerate Casper. Conan is 3/4 Great Pyrenees and weighed 64 lbs when my husband brought him home - he couldn't eat. Overcame that, though and is now a healthy 101 lbs and 5 yrs old.. Our two kittens are now eight months old and were dumped at the Humane Society when they weren't even 6 wks old. Boots & Oreo are loving and gentle. Yes, our rescued kids seem to need more love and reassurance than Cinnamon does. Fortunately, they take turns, and aren't all needy at the same time!! Well, except maybe when one of us comes home. We get quite the greeting. I wouldn't trade it for all the money in the world.

I have never had a rescue animal, but want to become a volunteer in a program I just heard about. It is nationwide and I think all of us can appreciate the site. Please take a look at it whenever you have a chance www.littlepawsrescue.org

My Callie is a rescue dog. I looked for 3 years after I lost my Bailey and it was well worth the wait. I drove to South Carolina to pick up Callie and she "sang" to me all the way home. Callie got sick soon after I got her home and now we know she has a liver shunt. Surgery is not an option of us but OH what love can do. Callie is on two medicines and she is doing so well. It was a bumpy road getting here but she just lights up my life and I'm so glad I kept her no matter what the road ahead is like. She still has some little issues from previous abuse but she is the most loving and affectionate dog I've ever had. Hope to see more stories of rescue dogs!

Our family has had 2 rescued dogs.
Clancey, our 16 year old Shepard/Lab (yep, she is really going strong at 16!) was a sad sack of a young mother who was found running along a road, very engorged and malnourished. We never saw her puppies as no one came to pick her up from the Animal Shelter so we adopted her. She has been the most incredible member of our family. She is getting slow moving, doesn`t hear or see well but is full of love and is so loyal. She is the head of our family and we love her more then she will ever know. Adopting is the only way to go! We saved her and she gave us much more then we ever gave her.

Well, yes ... I guess you could say that I have rescue pups. I rescue Great Danes and all kinds of hounds, plus I help Malamute rescue and currently even have a Great Pyrenees in need of a home. The two primary groups I belong to rescue, between them, nearly 600 dogs per year. I also run the only national group involved in American Foxhound rescue and a Texas-wide group for all the tall scenthounds: Coonhounds, Foxhounds, Bloodhounds and Catahoulas (plus the occasional Lacy). So, which rescue pup would you like to know about? :-)
