After a timid first couple of days, Dasher now plays with his toys, his new dog brother, and his new humans! He has learned to the ball and craves all the pets and loves and treats. Dasher even loves the strange little dog that doesn't play (the chi that taught him how to beg for treats). Dasher is truly off and running with his new forever home and family!
Levi, now Buck, is growing like a weed and having lots of fun with his two-legged and four legged friend.
This was SO not planned, but sometimes the best things just happen on their own, and then ... you are in love. It’s official: Lexi is an AZBCR foster fail ... we couldn’t be happier and I know in my heart that she is happy too. She’s been with us nearly five weeks now, and I’ve been working with her on a number of issues (btw, she wanted me to mention that the (previously very scary) doggie door flap is now a non-event for her!), and while she is still afraid of a lot of the world around her, she now trusts us and her silly personality (that I believe was hidden for so long) is definitely starting to show. And so Lexi just needs more work and more time to learn how to be brave, and in the meantime, how fun is it to watch her blossom and start to act like ... a dog!! Safe to say that the best Christmas presents have fur and tails!!
Maizie, now Lola, won the hearts of so many. She had quite a following. But she chose only one special, forever home, where she will have the best life ever.
So, Coco found her forever home today. FOSTER FAIL!!! She is staying with us. We couldn’t let this precious girl go. She has just become so happy here and we just love her.
This handsome boy, who came in with his brother, melted everyone's heart. He's a big boy with lots of love to give and fortunately has found a forever home, where he can give all that big love.
My husband and I were looking for a new pet after a tragic loss of our sweet dog Lily. We were just lost and needed to be able to give our love again, we had so much to give. We saw Bernie on FB. I immediately fell in love with him. We have owned dachshunds for many years so we were drawn to Bernie. After meeting the qualifications we visited Bernie at his foster home and we hit it off. We have had Bernie now for three weeks and he is the sweetest and most loving dog. We needed him and it seems that he needed us. Thank you AZBCR!!! (Note: Bernie was one of this years Christmas Saves. Every Christmas, our founder rescues one or two non-border collies, who are in desperate need of a forever home. Bernies owner had to go into assisted living and this lovely couple gave him a forever home.)
Bree was surrendered by her loving family due to issues with their other small dog. I was fortunate to be called to take her in. She needs to be the only pet in the home. I take her everywhere. She comes to work and is spoiled by every one. I am so happy to have her as my trail buddy.
Sonny (aka Hensley) loves playing with his brother Eddie. He is a perfect puppy specimen. Puppy teeth, puppy kisses, smart, head strong ... cries for a little bit. Sits for his treat. Goes potty outside when we take him, usually uses the potty pad. He is going to be a good dog. Very well socialized. A little curious with the cats but not too much.
I've got lots and lots of energy but fortunately, a very nice couple who live out in the country and have lots of fun things to do, adopted me and gave me a forever home. I even have a brother to play with. Thank you AZBCR for having faith in me.
