Bubba and Heart

We are Bubba and Heart.  I am Heart, the all black one and I’m a girl.  The white one with a heart on his side is Bubba. 
I know, I know.  Why isn’t the one with the Heart on his side named Heart?  Well, I don’t know, but he’s not.  His name is Bubba and he is white with a few black markings including the heart on his side.

Now like I said, my name is Heart and I’m all black and I DO NOT have a heart on my side. 

We are Great Dane mixed with something else, not too sure what, but we are already about fifty pounds.  I think we are going to need a little room to run.  

We are hoping to get adopted when we get to Maine.

Bubba

Hi.  My name is Bubba and I’m a boy.  I’m the one with a “heart” on my side.  I have no idea why they named me Bubba, but they did.  If you will adopt me, you can change it to whatever you want.

Hi, I’m Bindy.  I’m a girl.  Benji and I came from the home of a hoarder who had tons of dogs and didn’t take very good care of us. 
I’m not very good with kids but I will love you forever if you give me a little time to learn to trust you.  OK?  Will you adopt me?

Dog Rescue in Maine
Benji

Hello, I’m Benji.  My sister Bindy and I don’t need to be adopted together.  We are OK with going to different families.  The main thing is we just want to be adopted.  I am very sweet but I need time to warm up to you and learn to trust you.

Buddy

I am very friendly with everyone.  I’m still a puppy and I love to play.
Did they tell you that they found me wondering around on the streets?  Wow, I didn’t even realize yet how much trouble I was in.  I could have starved out there.
Anyway, I’m safe now.  All I need is someone to adopt me.  I’m ready for you.  Are you ready for me?

Harley

If I don’t look happy, there is a simple reason for it.  I’m not.

Bubba and Heart

Bubba and Heart are Great Dane mixes.  They are seven months old and about fifty pounds in the pictures.

Rescue Charlies Friends Dog Rescue Maine
Bubba and Heart

We are Bubba and Heart.  Heart, that’s me, They named me “Heart” because I have a heart on my side. Pretty cool, right? Besides the heart, I’m mostly white with a little black here and there. My brother Bubba is black with a little white here and there.

At least that’s what I think.  There seems to be some confusion about which of us is Bubba and which one is Heart and which of us is a boy and which one is a girl.  You would think the humans would know how to tell by now.  I think I should be “Heart” because I have the heart on my side, don’t you?  Anyway, I’m sure that between the humans in Maine and those in Alabama, we will get it figured out.  I’ll let you know.

We are Great Dane mixed with something else, not too sure what, but we are already about fifty pounds.  I think we are going to need a little room to run.  

We are hoping to get adopted when we get to Maine.  

Twinkle

Twinkle is a male Beagle mix.  He is four months old.

Hello my name is Twinkle.  Are you looking for a wonderful dog?  I’m it!  I’m only four months old.  That means I might have to carry one of your shoes around and hide it.  I’m really good at hide-and-seek.  Wanna play?

When we heard that Charlie passed away all of us here started bawling and crying and we just couldn’t stop.  Even though we weren’t going to actually meet Charlie until we got to Maine we were all so sad.  He has saved so many of us.  

We were very glad to hear that even though he is gone, his work will live on and he will keep saving dogs.  I wish I had gotten the chance to thank him personally. 

Allie

From Foster to Adopter

I have always been a dog person.
For as long as I can remember I have had a special bond with these four legged loves.
When my karma died I thought that my heart would rip in two. To me, and many other pet owners, a dog is very much a part of your family, another child. There is nothing like the love that a dog has for their humans.
For many years I have wanted another dog, but as we all know it’s a lot of work and I’ve got enough going on in my life, Ha! 

Fostering has been wonderful, it helps teach my kids responsibility, it shows them the importance of volunteer work and helping other beings, we get to have puppies around, and we got to save all of these beautiful dogs who otherwise wouldn’t have it so great.

I would highly recommend it for anyone out there who is a dog lover. It’s hard, yes, because you do fall in love, but it also gives life so much meaning, and it’s such an amazing feeling to see these dogs go to a new special home after coming from not so great circumstances.

This dog right here came into our life by chance. We are going away and the rescue just needed help with her for the weekend so they asked us. From the moment she got into our car, something was different. There was an immediate bond with my oldest and when we took her home it quickly extended to everyone. It just felt like she was coming home. We were absolutely not thinking about getting another dog right now, but just like Hazel, we absolutely could not let her go. She just fit. Even Hazel is realizing that she has a new body. This poor sweet dog had a rough beginning, but we’re here to make sure that the rest of her life is a grand one! I am so thankful that this sweet soul chose us. ❤️

What people are saying

I adopted a puppy from Rescue Charlie’s Friends on June 2, 2018 named August. My thirteen year old dog had passed away the month before.

I renamed him. Bud Lite. Bud because he is my Buddy and Lite because he is the Lite of my life.

I am some what of a hermit, but Buddy gets me out walking everyday. We have met many wonderful people and other dogs on our walks.

He means everything to me.

PLEASE keep up the good work you are doing both for the dogs and the families that are fortunate enough to adopt them.

DOG OF THE WEEK

This dog is

Squiggy

Full of energy.  Wants to know everything that is going on.  Squiggy loves everybody – kids, adults – loves ’em all.  Great with other dogs. We don’t know about cats.

Squiggy is well socialized and gets along with everyone.  His sisters, Laverne and Shirley have already been adopted.  In fact of the thirty adults and puppies that arrived on November 2nd, Squiggy is the only one not yet adopted. He needs a new home!

Squiggy is in Maine now and staying with a Foster. 

Squiggy is a four month old Labrador mix.

Hi, I’m Squiggy.  I’m a really great dog and I can’t figure out why, out of thirty dogs that arrived here in Maine last week, I am the only one not yet adopted.  I am a sweet, playful, loyal love-bug but no one has adopted me.  I just don’t get it.
