“I wanted to share with you some pictures of Pongo with his new “BFF” Wendal (our next door neighbor.) Pongo LOVES him and will run to his house every chance he gets. Although Pongo is probably one of the most stubborn dogs around, he has adjusted quite nicely as the ruler of our home. Thanks for taking such good care of him until he found his new home. Best of luck!” Jodi
Here are Michele and Cozmo (formerly “Muffin”. Cozmo was adopted by Almost Home volunteer Michele and her husband Larry at Christmas. Cozmo enjoys watching television and is pretty much a perfect dog. He came as a stray to Almost Home.
After her beloved schnauzer died at Christmas (at age 15), Karen immediately decided to adopt a
dog. Connor, a schnoodle, was a puppy mill dog and very scared of life. With much patience, Connor
is now walking on a leash and learning other skills. Karen honored Connor by volunteering September ‘09 at Best Friends (Dogtown)in Utah.
Daisy (formerly Talia) a puppy-mill shih tzu, was adopted by a very loving mom, and the two of them spent the last few cold months in sunny Florida!
Anya, once a sad and frightened Scottie barely surviving in a puppy mill, is now a bright and happy pet, adopted by a terrific family who love Anya tremendously.
“Thank you so much!
We just adore Stewie;
he fits right into our
family! I will
recommend the shelter
to anyone I know
Kim, Brian and Wolfie are a happy family.
Al brought his rescue mini-pin to see if he would get along with Rin, our beloved little guy who was saved from being gassed, and it was a love match! The two are best friends already and even sharing chew toys.
Our special boy Bruno with his mom, the best mom a dog could ever have!
Megan and Greta - check out the smile on Greta - she’s pretty happy to have found Megan!!
I just wanted to share some pictures of Maxine now that she is settled in her new home. She was adopted by the Commyn family in July‘09. She has made a complete 360 since we have brought her home. She is so talkative. She follows
our other dog, Mickey, everywhere he goes and
does whatever he does.
It's so cute. She is
such a little cuddle
buddy. We all love her
to pieces!! Stephanie Commyn
Writes Bonnie: Here are three pictures of Charlie. First, when he was a kitten. We got him when he was 3 weeks old and bottle fed him. with a bottle. The other pix are of him now. You can see he is a big guy so the bottle feeding must have worked. His favorite place to sleep is in the rocking chair. Isn't he cute?
Here are some pictures of Bailey (formerly known as Penny) taken this week. As you can see from the one picture she thinks she is a cat and lays herself across the back of the couch. It's pretty funny. She has made herself quite at home here with our boys. She is spoiled and enjoys all her "babies". After having to make the hard decision to put down our dog Rusty in December we really were not going to get a dog but we couldn't resist falling for Bailey and her adorable ears. She fits right in our home like she has always been part of our family. She is even so spoiled that she sleeps with my husband and I in our bed each night (which our late dog NEVER did!). Thank you for rescuing her and allowing us to adopt her into our family. Michelle
Just wanted to let all know that Asia has been nothing but a joy to the family. Asia is a true blessing! Asia was adopted in November 2009 and is completely settled in and comfortable with all of her surroundings, including the family cat. Thank you again, Almost Home.
Bryan & Family
We adopted Katie (Original name Pumpernickel) September 2009.We have just celebrated her first birthday. Katie has adjusted very well to life at home. She has a big sister, Cece, who was rescued from an alley in Detroit. They love to play, snuggle and eat together, as well as chase birds and squirrels from window to window. Katie is very affectionate and loves to be petted and snuggle.We are so happy to have such great friends and companions in Katie and Cece and encourage all that have the ability to bring home a new friend to contact Almost home. Thanks, Erik Buckstad & Chris Harris
