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
