Beautiful pups and kits all around. Throwaways are the best...... One man's trash is anothers treaure. You all are the lucky ones in your treasure hunts!

All these pics are great, and a picture IS worth a thousand words.

Sadie is our latest shelter dog. She was dumped in the night bin at a shelter in Ohio and somehow made it to Chicago. We adopted her from a group there, thinking we would bring her home and let her know some comfort for the last bit of her life. Well, looks like she might outlive us!!

Sadie, the day she arrived at the Chicago rescue:



She had the worst case of dry eye the vet had ever seen. It pained us to watch her try to blink her eyes - the eyeballs themselves were almost completely dry and covered with a crust. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/02_frown.gif[/img]

And here is the lucky lady now. I say lucky not because she met us but because she just went through emergency Pyometra spay last week! We weren't sure she would be strong enough to handle the surgery but she was!!




Tazer was a gift from the shelter I fostered for. I had recently lost my 1 yr old Cocker to some weird virus I brought back from the shelter. Tazer's mom was found roaming the streets of Chicago, immaculately groomed, wearing a rhinestone collar and VERY pregnant. Everyone thought it would just be a day or two before frantic owners started calling about her. No-one ever did. Tazer and his littermates were born at another fosters and at 8 weeks brought back to the shelter for adoption. Tazer was adopted and brought back the very next day. He was a non-stop ball of energy and attitude! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/01_smile.gif[/img] The director of fostering thought of me and that's how I got him. Little did I know I was getting the worlds only Lure Coursing, Herding Cocker Spaniel!!




And Winnie was a failed foster. I was at the shelter dropping off a foster I had finished (I did the health issues) and a young girl walked in with a dog and a box. She placed the box up on the coutner, handed the leash to the girl behind the counter, said "Puppies are just too much work" and walked out. I looked in the box - the pups were only about 4-5 weeks old. I told the girl I'd take them right away! I brought them home and set the box down in the living room while I made up the whelping area for the mom (x-pen in a quiet location). I return to the living room to find the puppies had knocked the box over. Winnie had my my 4 adult German Shepherd cornered! She was sitting in front of them barking at them! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/05_biggrin.gif[/img] Another attitude case! She never went back to the shelter! Now she's our Princess. 'Work' is beneath her. She didn't like obedience, thought agility was stupid (run AND jump?) and when she was beat on the lure course by her brother Tazer she refused to run again. Now she's just our photo model!

Lauri - you always have such great professional looking pictures! What a great thread! Here's my Zeus from the Pinellas County Shelter in Largo, FL. He was taken away from his owners for abuse and neglect. That was about 5 years ago. We fixed him up and he's in a loving home now. Crazy...but loving. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/01_smile.gif[/img]
Here are a few...


Neighborhood watch...

Teaching the little one about neighborhood watching...

Getting ready for a night on the town...

Earning his keep by "babysitting"...

Playing on the swingset...

OK...I'll stop now. LOL [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/01_smile.gif[/img]
