Last week Tuesday, my boyfriend Luis and I adopted Mac (who is now Mylo)
from your agency. Mylo is doing extremely well. His vet check up last week
said he very healthy and will probably grow up to be pretty big boy! He already weighs almost 28lbs and we have another weigh-in next week. We have already taught him to sit and to come and he LOVES going on walks. He is our little snuggle bug and we love him to pieces. A very, very great puppy and everyone always comments on how adorable and well behaved he is! His favorite toy is his squeaky hedgehog!
Thank you very much for all of your hard work and all that you guys do, keep up the good work!

Hi Mary and the rest of Chances!
I wanted to give you an update on Annie, since I've had her about 3 months now. Annie and I are getting along great! She is such a sweet and good girl and a snuggler too! She is very well behaved when I'm gone to work. She gets the run of the whole house, but she mostly likes my bed and the couch- two places where she can look out the window! She was very fearful of men at first, but my dad worked hard to earn her trust, and now they love each other (and she is less shy around other men). Annie is a great dog, and she is well loved. Thank you for helping us find each other!

Just an update on Lola, my everywhere companion. She is doing wonderfully and has traveled extensively in the state of Wisconsin since I adopted her two weeks ago from Chances Rescue. She loves to get in my Tahoe and doesn't want to get out when we arrive at our destinations but once she sees others there to greet her, she is ready to say hello to everyone - even my daughters cat, Binx (see picture).
After a few days living in her new home, Lola found her appetite and is now very demanding that we stay "on schedule". She loves her knotted bones and of course our twice daily treats. She has many new animal friends although really likes to follow the kitten, Binx around when he comes to visit, I suspect that Binx is just so little that Lola can't figure him out.
Although I want to think Lola is a fast learner, I have to believe that she originally came from a good home as she is very well behaved, obeys my requests on command, such as sit and shake (hands), and knows to sleep at the end of the bed.
I hope you enjoy the pictures I have attached of Lola at her new home.
Thank you for caring enough to find homes for all our animal friends that just need a helping hand.

I adopted Cookie from you guys back in november of 2010. She was quickly renamed to Abby after Abby from NCIS. She kinda got her name because our other dog is named Jethro after Jethro Gibbs in the show. About 2 weeks after we got her we sent her out for training to become a psychiatric service dog for me. I have Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and it makes my life hard to even be out in public. Abby ended up being trained very quickly because she is so smart. She graduated and is now my service dog.
She has been trained to wake me up to my alarm clock because I take sleep meds to get a good nights sleep and most times I don't hear the Alarm.
Also when I end up having a flashback she is trained to vigorously lick me and almost tackle me to get my attention back to the present. Also I suffer from panic attacks and she is trained to help guide me back to my car from wherever I am. She has basically opened me back up to the life I used to have before my PTSD. I just wanted to say thank you for helping her and taking such good care of her before I got her. She gets to go to the dog park every other day and run free for an hour or more. We also have three kids here that just love Abby and she has been used for dress up tea parties and everything. Abby lives a very good life, getting the best food I can afford and as many bones as she can chew on. Included are a few photos of her while she was in training wearing her training vest.
Also the day I picked her up from training.

We wanted to send you an update on Duchess that we just adopted from Chances a week and a half ago. She is adjusting well and really enjoys all the attention and exercise she gets on a daily basis. The kids absolutely adore her and play with her every chance they get. She was so tired last weekend from all the activity that she was sound asleep on her favorite chair shortly after dinner. I am training her to "heel" on the morning walks I take with her every day and how it is not good to chase every bird she sees:-). Her potty training is going great and she is doing wonderful with crate training. She is so loveable and is very smart. One thing we really need to work on is her taking food off of the counters (she is so tall) but she picks up commands rather easily so we have no worries. And she loves belly rubs!
We are attaching some great pictures of her and will stop in this Friday to return your dog crate and for a short visit.
Thank you for rescuing her in the first place. She is a wonderful addition to our family and we can't thank you enough!!!! Enjoy the pictures.

Just wanted to up-date you on Grover's first day on the farm. As it turns out our 9 year old female Newfoundland/German Sheppard mix could care less about Grover. And Grover could care less about her. When we put them together in the fenced dog yard she just lay's in the grass and watches him play with his toys. When they are in the house she sits in her loveseat sofa and he sits on his 3' X 5' high density foam cushion in front of the picture window. Last night Grover slept on the bed with us and didn't move.
I think he figured if we were being so quiet he should do so as well. He's very smart! When we were walking the two dogs in
our back pasture he stopped and pointed with his right front paw and tail. We were a little stunned and didn't know what to say. So I told him to go get um; and he flushed out some geese that were resting in the tall grass about 100 feet in front of us. Who would have guessed Grover was a hunter in his previous life. Grover ran, jumped, and played outside for about 5 hours yesterday and when I went to the gym this morning my wife put him in the horse bard with a bowl of dog food when she went to work and when I returned at 7:30 he had ate the whole bowl of dog food and was standing on his back legs watching for me out the pole building window. We're going to mow grass all day today and he sure loves to help.
Thanks and I'll send you a picture of him playing in the grass if I ever get caught up on my ward work.
Hi! Way back in September of 2010 I adopted Tara (now Dixie) a hound mix from Missouri. I just want you to know she has been and AMAZING addition to our family. She is a snuggle bug, a great companion and a great sister to our kitty, Fredricka. Dixie is a blessing. She has brought much happiness to our lives.
She is an "always" companion. She kennel trained very well, and will now go to her kennel just to hang out. She loves everyone. When we first got her, she was a bit skiddish around people. And while being walked, she would hide behind us from cars. I love to say now she is the Queen of the neighborhood! She is well liked by the neighbors, and is a great walking companion.
Just thought you'd enjoy the update!
