Hazel was originally a show dog until she suffered an injury that left her unable to walk. To make matters worse, her caretaker passed away and her siblings were adopted without her. Fortunately, Hazel had the wonderful shelter staff to take care of her. They saw her through surgery, hydrotherapy and they eventually arranged for her to get a set of wheels so she could be mobile. Hazel now spends her days sitting on her mom's lap, chasing joggers when she's in her wheels, showing off her cute diapered fanny, yelling at her dad, and bossing all the dogs around.
Joey was found as a stray in an urban area in the middle of winter. We agreed to take him in until his owners could be located. Days turned into weeks and there was no sign of his family. Soon it became evident that Joey was going to be an official member of The Pack. This wild one is part devil and part angel. He thoroughly enjoys racing around, wrestling and antagonizing everyone he meets. Thankfully he has his quiet moments too. He loves snuggling up in a blanket with his mom and taking long, comfy naps. Joey was once lost but now he is forever found.
We discovered Ruth in our wood pile in the middle of winter. She appeared to be a stray. We brought her into our basement, made her a warm bed next to the heater, and gave her food and water. We assumed this would be a temporary arrangement but Ruth had other plans. She wouldn't move out! A round of vaccinations and a spay surgery later, she was an official member of The Pack. Six years later and she still enjoys her role as The Pack bully.
