I'm enjoying this thread so much. Here's Gracie. It will be two years ago next month since I pulled her out of the shelter when her time was up. Someone left her at a kill shelter when they moved and didn't even bother to leave her name. I didn't have the slightest intention of keeping her at the time. Well, here we are almost two years later.

Here she is fresh out of the shelter after a good bath

What a beautiful girl Gracie is, and what a wonderful life that was saved. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/18_thumb.gif[/img]

Here is my favorite picture of Niki. She was a rescue from Alabama and we picked her up just as hurricane Camille was coming to shore.

2DogCrew....I love, love, love, love that Niki of yours!!! Her coloring is so stunnig! She looks so nice and prim and proper in that pic....I just cant get over how gorgeous she is!

This is a great thread....all the 'throwaways' are beautiful!!!!

Heres my two..

Boomer is from our local shelter...although I dont think he would have been in danger of being put down..he was a really cute pup!
who could have resisted that face???

Here he is now.


And this is our newest addition...Lola. She is a bearded collie mix, about two years old. Again, not in danger of being put down...but a shelter dog none the less. She is a real joy to have. These pics are from the first day she was here...I have to get some better ones of her little 'smile"!!

Thanks, BoomersMum. Your little guy Boomer is one big teddy! How lucky for you to have a little snowball running around!

Here's my Kaiser - he's about 6 yrs old now. Got him through this board from a shelter in Indiana. He came close to not making it out alive because he was such a large dog and no one wanted a big long haired dog like him. He's put on 30 pounds since his adoption - was 80 pounds then and is 110 pounds now and he's not at all fat. His temperament is perfect even though his former owner basically let him do whatever he wanted. He has been a really easy dog, I didn't have to do much to integrate him into my pack.

My rescue Scout. We adopted him over the Christmas Holiday. I've never had a pet bond with me the way he has.

People who think you cant find anything but 'mutts' from the shelters should take a look at this thread. These are some of the most gorgeous dogs I have ever seen...and they will thank you a thousand times over for saving them!

Keep those pics coming folks...this is a wonderful thread!

(thanks for the nice words about Boom)

I just realized I posted my cat on the Shelter DOG thread! Oops. Well, technically he's a cat, but since being here a year, has decided that he is possibly a transpeciesual dog.
