Success Story Maya (aka Latte)

Success Story Maya (aka Latte)

With a little help from her mutt mom, Michele Maya sent us her lovely success story. Enjoy!

On a warm Fall Day, back in October, I was sitting at Muttville waiting for yet another Adoption Day, where some of my friends would go to their forever homes and some of my pals would stay behind. What I did not know was that Michele and Jerry (my mom and dad) would be there soon. At first I was very scared, they could barely walk me around the block, my dad had to use canned chicken to entice me to keep moving forward on our walk.

Well, a lot as changed since then. Tonight, as I write my success story, I am getting ready to go to bed in a King Size Temperpedic, that I share with my Chihuahua sister, Chica, my mom and my dad. I am very sleepy after a day of going for my morning walk, playing in the backyard with my sister, taking naps on the leather sofa and watching TV with my family.

I love to run, play, sit on my mom’s and dad’s laps, cuddle- oh and I am not afraid of strangers. I even let them pet me when we go for walks. Thank you to all my friends at Muttville, the generous donors, and volunteers that took care of me until I went to my forever home.

With much gratitude~

Success Story "Reymundo"

Success Story "Reymundo"

Sami shares her love story with señor Reymundo:

Here is Reymundo (formally Raymond). 40 lbs lighter and happy as a clam with his two rottie sisters, one chi, two cats, 8 chickens and many dog visitors that we all dog sit at my home.

I love this boy! Original post had him at 8 years old but I called the vet on record from original caregiver who said he was 9.5 years old, born in March. He is now over 10 years old but acts like a puppy.

At 90 lbs, he’s an excellent counter surfer who loves routine, watermelon and mud!

Thank you Muttville!

Success Story "Betty" #2207

Success Story "Betty" #2207

Goofy Betty (formerly Jasmine) makes friends wherever she goes, and we were overjoyed when Erfert welcomed Betty into her amazing family, home and community filled with many two and four legged friends:

Betty came to me as a fospice dog, with inoperable skin cancer on her belly and a cone around her neck to keep her from licking the irritated area. Betty and I agreed right off the bat to ditch the cone in favor of an active lifestyle that didn’t give her much time for licking.

I live at a boarding stable with 70 horses, 8 cats, 3 goats, and 10 chickens, and Betty is now the beloved mascot here. She greets everyone, human or canine, with glee, and is quite popular with the boarders. She keeps the raccoons out of my house and protects the chickens from the neighborhood bobcat. She loves her job! Yes, she still has skin cancer, but she has a great day every day.

Thanks, Muttville, for giving me the opportunity to care for this extraordinary dog.

Success Story Chloe #1705

Success Story Chloe #1705

Chloe was the lovely model for Muttville’s mural, and mom Linda says before she even met her, she knew she was the one. Read their sweet love story:

Apparently Chloe came to Muttville in pretty bad shape. I’m told she was full of fleas, very skinny, and most of her hair had fallen out. She had been dumped at some shelter. But Muttville found her, and things started getting better for her. The wonderful Muttville foster couple who took her

in at that time helped her begin to heal, body and soul.

Chloe is doing really well these days. I’ve had her almost two years now. Her age was debated, but my vet says 12 or 13. We live on the Russian River in a somewhat rural area of Sonoma County, and our daily walks take us through orchards and along the river. Chloe likes to take lots of naps, and is definitely enjoying retirement along with me. I have another dog as well, so our pack is thriving and happy.

There is a beautiful mural on one of the walls at Muttville, I do believe it is a picture of Chloe when she was still so underweight but recovering.

She is smiling and has a lively look on her face. It’s that look that jumped out at me from Muttville’s website and in that moment, even before I had met her, I knew I had been chosen. Thank you Muttville!

Love XXX

Linda

Success Story Dottie #2680

Success Story Dottie #2680

Described as “teeny, weenie Dottie”, David and Deanna share how much they love their little Muttville gal:

Dottie has been nothing but a ray of sunshine in our lives. We hesitated at first to get a second dog since my husband and I work early and very long hours but we just knew that our long-hair Doxie Buster needed a companion. Dottie, even as an “old lady” has enlivened her brother Buster and us as well. She is a total snuggler and loves to bury deep in the covers to keep warm…or else she shivers!

Dottie has learned to love the beach. She destroys multiple squeaky toys a week. And her favorite hobby is burrowing deep in the covers. She loves sunspotting in the house during the day with Buster and loves the back garden even more when she can explore.

We are so fortunate to have rescued her from such a great organization as Muttville. The partnership they have with the SPCA is also amazing. Poor baby Dott had to have TWENTY-TWO! teeth pulled right after we took her home and the poor baby had to stay overnight twice at the vet hospital at the SPCA. We were your typical worried parents but couldn’t ask for a better experience and the care they provide for these older, and sadly abandoned, babies is just so heartwarming. We thank you for everything you do and I look forward to the day we can welcome home another Muttville pup into our home.

We remain eternally grateful for your efforts to save all of these deserving “mutts”.

Love (and wet kisses),

David, Deanna, Dottie and Buster
