We've had Molly, our rescue dog, six months today. We took her on her first camping trip last week, from NJ to Tennessee. She did absolutely great. No problems whatsoever. We now call our pick-up the "Molly mobile" because she just loves to jump in and go for rides. She makes us laugh and smile every day and we are so happy to have her in our lives. She always comes up to us and lies her head on our laps. She looks up at us with so much love in her eyes. We have been blessed with having found her and hope to go on many more trips with her.

I love my rescue dogs. I could talk forever about all of them, but I'll stick with the one I have now.

My current dog is a big fluffy handsome german shepherd mix who is the gentlest dog I've ever met. He bonded to me within the first few days I had him, and with the possible exception of food, I am his world.

I leash him because I follow the rules, but he's never more than a few feet from me. He tolerates having nightly ear cleanings even though he hates it. He lets the cats slap him and yowl at him and puts up with a lot of kiddie chaos when children visit. He leaves my feral cats alone and has learned not to chase deer or squirrels past his own yard. He walks at a perfect heel and listens extremely well - I can tell him what I want without a word, just a gesture is enough.

He was a stray that ended up in a kill shelter, but was luckily pulled by a rescuer who could see he was a good dog. He came to me at 5 or so years old, emaciated, with old injuries and signs he'd been neglected and confined. He's been with us for a year and a half and I hope we have him for many, many more years.

I love this dog, and I can't believe someone threw him away.

When we found him on the rescue orginization's website and called, they told us they would bring him by but was very upfront that due to his last home he didn't like males at all and just couldn't bond with them. Well we set a time for him to come for a home visit but was afraid it wouldn't work. When they arrived i just sat down in the middle of the floor and she let the little guy loose, he ran right over to me, hopped on my lap and was like i'm home Dad. He is my best little buddy now. We had a few very minor bumps with him getting used to his sister but now they are inseparable, as we call them "partners in crime" and i mean that very sincerely, LOL. What one doesn't think of the other one does.

I totally agree - they know when they have it good! We gave up on boxers after a couple of absolutely miserable experiences. We adopted a Westie/bichon (we're guessing??) mix from the same rescue group we got Potsie from, almost two weeks ago. She was pulled by the rescue the day before she was to be euthanized. Apparently, she was dumped after it was discovered she was pregnant! The next morning, she gave birth to puppies at the foster mom's house! The foster mom said that she was the most awesome mom. After the pups were all adopted out (yay!), then Madonna, who we've renamed Maddie, was put up for adoption.

She has fit seamlessly into our family, and even Potsie likes her and they play well. She had to be spayed a week ago Wednesday after we adopted her the previous Sunday (required by the rescue), and it didn't phase her in the least. She's already back to her normal self.

She KNOWS she's in a good place! She's a happy camper, for sure!

I totally agree with your statement about rescue dogs. We have a 14 year old large part Aussie rescue and she needs eye meds twice a day and afterwards she always gives me a sweet lick to thank me. She was turned in when she was 1 for bad behaviour and aggression. For us she has been kind, obedient and a wonderful companion. Age is taking its toll on both of us but we will make the most of our time together.

Dixie Flyer, I have read about the wonderful things you and your husband do and it brings me to tears. I have to say i couldn't do what you do because I would have 300 plus dogs in my house! LOL. Seriously though keep up the good work.
