I was cleaning the kennel the other day and had a new thought.  (Hey, I do my best thinking when I am cleaning up the poo).  Chuck, (my husband and co-owner of 12 Hills Dog Rescue) takes the dogs for their nightly run witht he 4WD Mule.  The night before, he had come in and sat in the recliner to cool down. He shared with me about a certain dog that he thought was very special.  (This isn’t the first time that he has shared about dogs that he feels are very special.)  Don’t get me wrong, Chuck loves them all ,and they all seem to love him.  BUT, some endear themselves to him and he “just knows” they are special doggies.

The first dog we had in our rescue that was extra special to him, was Bee Bee. I remember him saying, “She isn’t going anywhere, unless a special person comes along that will really love and understand her.”  Well, Nancy came along and I was surprised, he let her go, even though it was hard for him. 

Then there was Princess—a wonderful couple took her and now she is the Princess or Queen of their home.  These are just two of the special ones Chuck has picked. It occured to me that maybe I should share his thoughts about those special dogs.  So here goes—-Our first one is Alice. Alice is a golden lab mix.  She is a little shy, very sweet and has hair that stands up on her neck. It looks like a giant cowlick or maybe a mohawk hair cut.  She also has one foot that has a smaller toe the others,  If she has been running a lot, she may favor it a little.  Why would he fall in love with this dog? She  is a true beauty inside and out.  You just have to look into her eyes and you can see for yourself. 

So, watch for “Chuck’s Picks” on our petfinder page as well as Facebook in the near future.

More of our Fairy Tale Puppies.

They are characters! hoping that they will find their new homes this weekend.  They like to play in the Lilies—well they used to be Lilies, anyway.  Some are very outgoing and two are a little shy. My granddaughter is holding them for their pictures.  She takes a better picture than I do.Image


It all began one late fall day, no one knows the exact time or day, but two German Shepherd puppies decided to go on an adventure.  An abandoned and collapsed pool looked fun.  In the pool a little water–oops, we can’t get out. What will we do?  Several days later, maybe even a week, a law officer arrives on the scene to investigate dogs that had been abandoned.  After looking all around, he somehow stumbles upon 2 starving, emaciated puppies near death, in a pool that was partially collapsed.  He retrieves them and heads for 12 Hills Dog Rescue.  There they were given good food to build them up and lots of soft words of assurance.  After several weeks and lots of care—2 beautiful Shepherd puppies are ready for their next adventure.  We named them Bonnie and Clyde.  Bonnie is outgoing and Clyde is just a little more shy.

Now you want to know the rest of the story?  The dogs that were reported abandoned on the property were never found.  Where did Bonnie and Clyde come from?  Were they abandoned also, and left to die?  Or were they two puppies from a neighboring house on an adventure gone bad? We may never know and Bonnie and Clyde can’t tell us.  What we do know is that they were saved, thanks to a very kind man, and that they are well again and ready for new adventures with a loving forever family.
