Happily Ever After

DORTHY

The Dazzling Yorkie on Wheels

Dorothy the Dazzling Yorkie on wheels embodies overcoming adversity. Dorothy is a very spunky 7-year-old who had her back broken by her previous owner’s children when they threw her down the stairs using her as a football. She became paralyzed from the waist down, but Dorothy is a true fighter. This 6-lb little girl thinks she's the size of a Great Dane, is too smart for her own good, and she is always on the move!

 

SUNSHINE

“I want the world to see that shelter dogs with fear
issues can be great family pets, if given the chance!”

Downey Shelter in Downey, California picked me up as a stray. The shelter labeled me "dog and human aggressive." The shelter even said I was a former "bait dog." I'm not sure why they thought that.

I.C.A.R.E. Dog Rescue didn't care about the "label" and they saved me on January 5, 2012. My rescue had a foster home all ready for me. After my foster family met me, they decided I was too much to handle because of my behavior/issues. ICARE tried and tried to find me another foster, but the word was out, "Sunshine is a bad dog." ICARE sent me to a training/boarding facility for 30 days in the hopes that it would help me overcome my fear issues.

 

ANTHONY MATER

Raising Awareness About Handicapped Pets!

This is my dog, Anthony Mater. He is almost 3-years-old and he has overcome so many obstacles in his life. Anthony was born with a bone disease that caused fluid buildup in his lungs, heart, and brain. The veterinarian performed surgery trying to save his back leg when he was 4 months old, after diagnosing him with Legg Perthes Disease. He had to be woken up during surgery because his heart rate dropped very low, and he spent 3 days in intensive care.

 

ENZO

Left in the backyard of an abandoned house to die... then rescued!

I was not looking for a dog, as I was struggling taking care of a close relative who was battling an illness and living with me and my family. A dog was the last thing I needed. Especially, a 110-lb dog. I already had a dog and 3 cats, I didn’t need any more animals, or so I thought. Jack had a few issues he would have to overcome if he was going to live in my busy home. Like stairs, televisions sets, radios, and noise. Lots of noise, as I have 2 teenage daughters. Lucky for me, I also have an understanding husband.

SWEET PEA

A puppy mill survivor rescued by National Mill Dog Rescue

Hello! I'm a puppy mill survivor. I'm 5-years-old, but my life really started in February of this year when National Mill Dog Rescue (NMDR) saved my three puppies and myself. My mill was being shut down, and thankfully, the owners called in NMDR and the team to save us doggies. I was not treated well there at all, I slept in a cold, wire cage, and I have splayed paws and a bent tail. But, we were being rescued, and my two-week-old puppies and I were transported from Missouri to NMDR's kennel in Peyton, Colorado.
