Success Stories Missy and Dudley

Success Stories Missy and Dudley

Double the love! Suzanne adopted 2 mutts within 3 months from Muttville. How’s it going? Read below!

I have adopted two dogs from Muttville within the last 3 months, first Dudley and then Honey Bee (now named Missy). They are both senior dogs. Dudley is deaf and Missy is blind. They have brought so much joy into my life. Missy was in very bad shape when she was brought into Muttville. She was very shy and frightened having been found as a stray but it took only a couple of days for her to feel right at home with me and to bond with Dudley. They are so cute together. They sleep on my bed together and each morning greet each other before going outdoors. You would never know that Missy is blind. She trots around the house and neighborhood just like she was a sighted dog. Missy is sooo sweet. My granddaughter and her girl friends carry her around like a stuffed animal and Missy loves it. She is the sweetest dog I have ever had.

Thank you so much, Muttville, for making it possible for these two wonderful dogs to come into my life.

Success Story "Kelce" aka Ginger 3720

Success Story "Kelce" aka Ginger 3720

Today is International Day Of Peace, and Ginger’s story told by mom Shannon is a perfect tribute on this special day:

When had to put my dog Andy to sleep in February, I began wondering how long I should wait to get another dog. I always knew I wanted to rescue a senior dog and after about a month I would look at your website daily trying to find the perfect dog. Well I found her!! I adopted Ginger, (now named Kelce after my favorite football player) in April. I can’t even begin to tell you how much I already love this little girl!! She is the coolest dog!! She had been through a lot in the months before I got her, so she was understandably apprehensive when we first got home. But Kelce is adjusting just fine. She still surprises me daily with new cute little traits and seems to trust me more and more as time goes on. She’s completely housetrained, hasn’t had one accident in the house, she does the cutest little thing with her paws if you’re scratching her belly and stop, and she gets along great with the 2 German Shepherds that live with us, Moe Joe and Ruby.

I look so forward to going home and having Kelce there to greet me, she gets so excited, runs in circles and chases her tail. She even stands on her hind legs and moves her front paws up and down in the air. She’s adorable! She loves walks, going for car rides, sleeping in bed with me and is learning that she’s a San Francisco Giants and Kansas City Chiefs fan!

Thank you so much Muttville!! No dog could ever replace my little “Andy man” but Kelce has already stamped her own permanent spot in my heart and we are having so much fun together. Everyone tells me that she’s so lucky to have found a home with me and my response is always.. “I’m the lucky one”.

Success Story "Mr. Jones"

Success Story "Mr. Jones"

August 15 was the 2 year adoptiversary of Mr. Jones! Mara and Dow tell us about the mutt love of their lives:

It is our 2 year adoptiversary of Mr. Jones (fka Indigo)! Found as a stray in Santa Cruz with hair so matted he needed to be sedated to be groomed, we are daily and forever grateful for the efforts of everyone who looked out for him along the way. For me, knowing that so many people are involved with rescuing a homeless animal alleviates some of the frustration and anger I often feel towards those who put them in their tough situations in the first place. There are many bright lights shining in the dark…

I’ve included a few photos from the past few months, including bathtime with “Cousin Millie” and sightseeing in Morro Bay!

Thanks, again, for ALL you do. We love Mr. Jones and we love Muttville!

Success Story Jeannie 3093

Success Story Jeannie 3093

Thanks to mutt parents Natalie and Andy for sharing Jeanie’s one year update:

She has truly become our partner in crime, our best friend, our sidekick, our favorite shadow. She’s healthy and we hope happy. Her favorite things to do are go for rides in the car, nap on our pillows and sit on our heads, lick our hands while we type on the computer (she’s doing it right now), and sniff the big garbage can outside of the seafood restaurant we live near. She actually loves cars so much she has jumped into strangers’ cars on walks when their doors were open!

She also looks like a different dog. She’s fluffy and has put on some weight. She is 7 pounds of the most adorable and courageous chutzpah. She is really nothing like the sad, lost, and patchy dog we brought home last year. She’s a confident fluffy rockstar now.

We had a birthday party for her in June to celebrate her one year adopt-aversary and over 20 friends showed up to celebrate her and shower her with love and treats (she’s become somewhat of a celebrity in the Oakland music scene… her dad takes her to his recording studio so she gets to hang out with cool bands all day).

There was a rough patch with the house training and with bigger dogs but its all worked itself out. She hasn’t gone potty in our house in about seven months and we’ve learned to avoid big dogs!

We love her very very much and want to thank you for all of your help with adopting Jeanie and for bringing her into our lives. Thank you also for your support during those rough early weeks.

Love,

Natalie and Andy
