Did they tell you that I am a big cuddle bug?  Did they tell you what happened to us?

Well, we hardly got any food to eat and they were not at all kind to us.  Just let me say that we were very very glad to be rescued. Now we are getting enough to eat but we still need one more thing and it is very important.  My babies (Yes, they are ALL GIRLS!) need to be adopted so they can have a family of their own to love.  They need that.  So do I.

Will you adopt one of them?  then when we can be sure that they will have a happy life, will you adopt me?  

Oh, back to telling you a little about me.  Yes, I’m a big cuddle bug.  I love kids and I get along great with other dogs.  I even get along with chickens and other livestock.  

I love to go out and run but when it comes time to settle down and calm down, I’m ready to take a nap in you lap.  I love it there.

So like I asked before, will you adopt one of my babies and then will you adopt me?

Hi, I ‘m Dorothy.

I’ve had a rough time in life.  It’s going to take me a little time to trust you so that when you reach over me, I won’t think you are going to hit me.  I’m with a foster now that has another dog.  I saw that the other dog was not afraid so I soon learned it’s OK and I don’t need to be afraid.  

If you need to put me in a crate for a little while, that’s OK as long as you are in the house.  I get a little scared if you just go off and leave me alone. 

Housebreaking?  Well we started training about that but I like it when you go outside with me while I take care of business.  Maybe it’s best if I am in a fenced yard or even on a leash so if I get scared, you can call me back.

I’m sorry if I sound like a problem girl.  I don’t want to be.  I just want to have a family that I can love and that will love me back.  That’s all I ever wanted.  Please give me a chance.

Will you adopt me?

Wow.  We had some excitement at my house.  The police came and took the mom and dad away.  Then some other people came and took the kids away.  I was the only one left in the house and I was getting pretty scared but then some people came and took me away too.

It looks like I will never be going back to that house so i need a new family.

I’m good with kids and dogs and I will love you with all my heart if you will just give me a chance.

Will you adopt me?

Howdy, I’m Rock!
I am just a sweet love bug.  I really love people.  I love kids too.

I’m good with other dogs but sometimes male dogs are not my favorite.  

I’m ready to give you all the love I have, and that’s a LOT.  I just want to be adopted.  Will you adopt me?  Please?

I will be the best friend you ever had!

Friday, May 1st, 2020:

Charlie is at the Hospital fighting for his life.

He was fine, happy and playing last night.  This morning  he collapsed and was unable to stand or walk.  We rushed him to the veterinarian who found that he was bleeding internally due to tumors on his spleen.  Surgery is not recommended because the cancer has likely already spread.  He is at the hospital now and they are trying to stabilize his blood pressure and get the bleeding to stop.  If successful, we will bring him home later tonight and he will be on Yunnan Baiyao for the rest of his days.  This is not a cure but it may give him a few more weeks or months of life.  The veterinarian does not believe that he is in pain.  We are sorry to say if his vitals won’t stabilize we will have to say good bye to Charlie. Please wish him well!

Friday night update 8:30 PM Charlie came out of the hospital walking on his own with his tail wagging.  We got him home and he went downhill a bit and had to be carried to his bed. He is in his bed now and we will have to wait and see how he is in the morning.
Friday night update 11:30 PM Our beloved Charlie died quietly in his bed moments ago.  He was comforted by the ones he loved during his last moments.  We will always love him.
