Sweet surprise for this little girl! Mom and dad had already met and been approved to adopt Rubble as a new family member and companion for their own rescued cattle dog mix.
To add some fun to the process, they didn’t tell their daughter what they’d done and took her to our facility on a day when we had one of our low-cost vaccine clinics. She thought they were there to get their dog’s vaccinations.
When Rubble was casually brought over by a volunteer, the little girl was smitten and shyly asked the volunteer what the puppy’s name was. The volunteer said “Rubble”. Then mom said, “But you can name him anything you want because he’s coming home with us!!!”
Happy tears flowed and Rubble is one lucky guy. Thank you for the fun adoption! Best wishes!

Bye-bye Buttercup! The family met her at Petsmart, went home to think about it and decided their Bichon Frise would like a friend and so would they. Happy beginnings to this little pup! Thank you for adopting!
Our sweet girl, Paige (we kept the name you gave her), is a wonderful dog. We adopted her 2010. We are so happy you rescued her! Paige is a great communicator, using many “voices”. She and my husband sing together every morning! She also lets him know as soon as the paper arrives, and won’t…
