I’ve Said It Before. . . .

Yes, I have said it before, “We are on a roll!”  12 Hills Dog Rescue is happy to announce that some of our dogs that have been here for awhile are FINALLY getting their forever families.

Peaches arrived here in 2011, or maybe even earlier.  Because of her breed, a Staffordshire Terrier, she had never been adopted.  There is good news! She found a wonderful home–with someone who believes Peaches deserved an opportunity to “be the best she could be!”  I am happy to report she is doing great, loves her car rides, cuddling and all the attention that her new mom is giving her.  This is the smile she gave us–just before she loaded up.IMG_4058 (1024x768)

Here is Annie with her new mom. Annie has been waiting for 2 years!

Today, another great doggie went on her way to a new life with new loving parents. Cheeka had been here for over a year., and has always been a free spirit.  Her owners had both passed away, and we know she was lonely and missed hanging out with everyone. Cheeka spent many of her days on top of her dog house. We used to joke about her being the biggest Snoopy around. We finally placed Little Red in the yard with her for a playmate. Then the call came that a family was interested in Cheeka, even though she was a senior. She was very excited to meet her new family, (well as excited as an older dog like Cheeka can be). Her new family also adopted, Susie,  a granddaughter of sorts that she can train and play with.  Good Luck to Cheeka and Susie! 20160903_134556-1 (1024x720)

Yes, I have said it before—we are on a roll, but I have also said before “Some of the dogs at 12 Hills have waited long enough.”  I can name quite a few: Socks, Max, Lover Boy, Husker, Jordan, Ginger etc. But I want to share with you about a dog that is so very special–a dog that gets overlooked time and again. Her name is Jordan. Ben, one of our great volunteers, mentioned this week that he didn’t understand why such a sweet dog like Jordan hadn’t been adopted.  I shared with him, that we felt the same and promised to retake her photos and place them in a story. So when one of our walking volunteers took Jordan out for her special walk, we took some photos and Jordan was thrilled with all the attention. Jordan loves her walks, and just seems to light up when she has someone to spend time with.   Jordan deserves a family to love her, and I know that there is some one out there, who needs her.  She just needs the opportunity–the same opportunity that Peaches, Annie & Cheeka were so blessed to have.  Take a close look at Jordan, and you will see a special girl, waiting for her special forever family.IMG_4225 (1024x682)

Yes, we have had other great doggies get adopted the last few weeks. Patience, publicity and forever families is a good combination for all rescue dogs. Oh, and I forgot to mention the most important thing that rescue dogs need:LOVE!
