Success Stories "Annie and Andy"

Success Stories "Annie and Andy"

Mutt mom Amanda admits that her two seniors were a challenge! Read their story:

Annie and Andy have officially been spicing up our lives for a year now! Here is an update on our exciting life with them.

Annie, whom we nicknamed “Mama,” is whole new dog. Muttville really saved her life, giving her the surgery she needed for her masses and hernia. After we had had her a few months, we discovered she also needed a tumor removed from her pancreas. It turns out she had had very low blood sugar the whole time- but her other maladies were so bad we didn’t notice! We did a successful GoFundMe fundraiser to help us pay for the surgery, and she has had ongoing chemo to keep the nasty cells in check. Two months ago, her blood sugar read normal for the first time! She still acts like we never feed her _ . With her back legs nice and strong after doing pup-pilates with Dr. Strubel at the Rex center, Mama Annie has become an energetic, playful little spitfire who pirouettes and bounces like a bunny when she is excited. You would never suspect she was the same dog that a year ago mostly slept and sat around just watching Andy play.

Andy is in great shape, and has come a long way in terms of his behavior. He has always been a good-hearted dog, but his leash reactivity was a challenge when we first brought him home. But after some classes that taught us how to work with him, he has improved immensely and continues to gain confidence and be more relaxed on leash.

I have seen so many Muttville dogs transform, even in the little time they spend at Muttville before finding forever homes. I hope our story helps encourage people that even after you bring your mutts home, they continue to evolve and become healthy and happy in body and mind.

Andy and Annie were challenging when we first brought them home and we were worried we would not be able to make it work. How glad we are that we stuck with it. They both have learned many commands, and have become much better behaved little citizens. They even let me brush their teeth! You can certainly teach old dogs new tricks, with patience, love and a lot of treats.

We are so grateful for the second chance Muttville gives senior dogs, and for saving Andy and Annie so they could complete our family.

Love,

Amanda and Greg

Success Story "Cleo" (aka Maureen)

Success Story "Cleo" (aka Maureen)

Timing is everything. Well, it helps to be very cute and charming too! Enjoy Cleo’s adorable story:

We’ve both recently just transitioned out of the Military and moved to the Bay Area. We were looking for a little addition to make our new place feel a bit more like home and that’s when we found our little fluff, Cleo! We went to Muttville around thanksgiving last year and it’s been the best decision we’ve made! She was the first little pup to come up and sit down with us at Muttville. With her charming personality and adorable little eyes, We instantly knew she was the one!

She has a wonderful and kind personality and loves to snuggle and go on walks. It’s always great to come home to her. She even has her welcome home mommy and daddy dance she does for us! She completes our family and we thank Muttville for all they do for little dogs like her! She’s exactly what we needed!

Success Story "Harley"

Success Story "Harley"

This lucky Beagle mix found a new homes with beagle lover Cheri! Enjoy his story, in his own words:

Hi, I’m Harley, I was known at Muttville as Freddie. My Mommy and Daddy changed my name because they said I just looked like a Harley, and I’m cool with that.

I was Muttville’s resident Tri-Pawed Beagle Mix. I have 2 brother’s Nash and Flash and a sister Savannah who also came from Muttville. She’s still a talker let me tell you! Her and Daddy have some pretty funny conversations.

I really love my new home. There’s a doggy door so I can go outside whenever I want. Having three paws has not deterred me at all. I can go up and down the steps and Mommy and Daddy got steps so I can sleep in the bed with everyone else. Since I’ve come here, I’ve felt really safe and secure here. I had a little bit of trouble with Nash because he’s older than I and can be a little clumsy, but we’ve worked through it and now we’re buddies. Savannah doesn’t like any of us, so at least she’s consistent with that. I really think she does like us but she has to yell at us like a girl, and it’s funny because Flash is afraid of her. Ok, I’m not much into talking so that’s my story. I’m very happy here and glad to have this great family to live with, even Savannah. :)

From Mommy and Daddy….

I was a little bit apprehensive about rescuing a tri pawed dog, but one hour with Harley and that totally went away. He has more energy than all of us, and you can just tell he’s happy to be here. He got into our routine of life really fast, he knows when it’s nap time here, and at bedtime sometimes we find him already up in bed, sleeping like a log. He loves his total freedom and we’re so happy that his senior years will be spent with us. He always has a smile on his face and he is very protective of me. Anywhere I go, he’s always right there beside me. I’ve gotten a whole new perspective of dogs with disabilities, they’re no different than any other pet, and it almost seems as if they are more grateful for the love you give them. I call Harley Fuzzy Wuzzy because he’s so furry compared to Flash, Nash and Savannah and he loves when I sing the Fuzzy Wuzzy song because he know’s it’s special for him.

Muttville has shown us that rescuing senior dogs are very rewarding and these special seniors are so happy when they go to their new forever homes. I’ll always be grateful to them for showing me this, and Harley and Savannah will always have our love and care.

Thanks Muttville, you rock!

Success Story "Lemon"

Success Story "Lemon"

Happy Adopt-a-versary to Lemon! Her life is an inspiration – and she is still going strong at 17 years young:

Happy 3rd adoptaversary Lemon and your 17th birthday today.

Despite Lemon’s health issues with congenital heart failure diagnosed a year ago, she again steps up to be the perfect therapy dog.

Lemon helped both of us through transplant surgery and recovery. Her Mutt-mom was her Mutt-dad’s cross-match kidney donor, so both Mutt-parents were recovering after transplant surgery last June 2016. Lemon knew exactly who needed her most. She would go over to the one in pain and lied next to them so we could pet her. There is truth that petting a dog is good medicine for healing… along with laughter and hugs.

After Lemon getting us through 3 health issues this last 3 years, we know Lemon rescued us… without a doubt.

We’re praying Lemon will make it through another year to 18. And her 4th adopt-a-versary. Lemon had her annual checkup yesterday with all the labwork. The vet was so surprised she’s doing so well. We said she knew her job wasn’t over yet, she’s here for a purpose.

Success Story "Lutie"

Success Story "Lutie"

How much love and life can you pack in one year? Chris and Sashee gave Lutie all the love they had, and they share with us their story:

Despite the best efforts of us and Mission Pet Hospital, we unfortunately had to put Lutie to rest early December. The root cause was unclear in the end. She was diagnosed with aspiration pneumonia in July and again in November. As things got worse in early December, the doctors felt based on the latest x-rays it was something more serious, possibly lung cancer.

Lutie was a wonderful addition to our lives the one year we had her, she made that short time filled with what seemed like years of warm memories. Her mind was willing to live further, even though her body was shutting down in the end.

Thanks to the Muttville organization for enabling us to have that awesome experience.

Success Story "Scupper" aka Lincoln

Success Story "Scupper" aka Lincoln

Adopting a hospice dog is really about appreciating the joys of life. Fospice boy Scupper is truly living it up:

We fospiced Lincoln in August. As you can see in the photo, he is doing well. While he is blind, it does seem that a bit of hearing has come back to him. Not much hearing but some high pitch sounds. His fur has grown in and he quickly learned how to use the doggie door to go outside. He is house trained. He enjoys exploring the yard and car rides. In fact he drove with us thrown Nevada, Utah, Wyoming, South Dakota, Minnesota, Ohio, And Colorado this winter where he enjoyed playing in the snow. He is back home safe and sound where he is going in and out of the dog door all day even with his hip arthritis and blindness. He is a brave little guy.

Lincoln is super sweet too! His personality is really blooming. He likes to play and gets very animated. He also really enjoys being held and actually jumps into our arms in the morning when we wake him up. He hugs us when we hold him. So sweet. He loves walks but he is slow so we call his walks “sniffs” instead.

Lincoln eats well (most of the time!) He loves the kibble brand which Sherri fed him so we have continued to feed him the same brand. And we discovered he loves milk, although we have to give him lactose free b/c he appears to be lactose intolerant. Funniest part of his eating desires is his absolute crazy love for apples. We are cautious to ensure he doesn’t have the core or the seeds and we only feed him a little bit every few days. We’ve never had a dog love apples so much. Very funny.

We changed his name to “Scupper" because he seems to be able to hear the strong consonants and syllables better than “Lincoln” In fact his ears really perk up any time we call out “Scupper!!" which never seemed to happen with the name Lincoln.

We are very happy with the little guy and he seems to be happy with us too.

Success Story "Apple" 2406

Success Story "Apple" 2406

With happiness comes tears. A story that makes our hearts sing for the loving family she found, and saddened to hear she has crossed the rainbow bridge. Thank you Susan for sharing Apple’s story:

Apple moved in with us June 28, 2014. Us being Peggy, Susan, Dinky, Gussie, and Tansee. . .two humans and three dawgs. She quickly established herself as the eldest matriarch who loved scolding the other three for making too much noise.

Apple was devoted to Susan and Peggy; she was always in our laps under the blankets all nice and cozy. Apple was often very fickle; during the day time she cuddled with Peggy. At night it was Susan through and through. Apple was a chihuahua through and through! At bedtime her favorite place to sleep was in Susan’s left armpit. Don’t ask me why!!! She may have had no teeth but that never stopped her from enjoying her meals and cookies or giving daily kisses. Her tongue hung out on the right side, and only the right side. Like her mommie (Susan) she loved sunning in the backyard, often staying outside when everyone else went inside. We had to bring her inside from time to time. Going to places excited her; meeting new laps thrilled her; hiding under blankets soothed her. Her trademark pose was peeking out from under a blanket; we have millions of pictures of her in this pose. The two years, four months, and five days were full of experiences, laughter, kisses, and amazement.

Apple died on November 02, 2016. She was very clear that it was time. She went for her last walk that morning and made her last deposit :-). We were all with her when she died. She is home and has her own altar. In the two months since her death we feel her absence so keenly. Apple was and still is the queen.

It is not our differences that divide us.
It is our inability to recognize, accept and celebrate those differences.

Success Story "Muffin" 2712

Success Story "Muffin" 2712

Muffin has passed on, but not before giving and receiving a lifetime of love:

Hello friends at Muttville,

We said a very sad goodbye to our beautiful dachshund, Muffin (Muffin 2712), whom we adopted in Dec. 2014. Just before Thanksgiving, she developed pneumonia. While our amazing vets at Bishop Ranch Veterinary Center tried everything to help her through it, Muffin was not able to recover.

We miss our sweet girl immensely. Muffin was an absolute love to everyone she met and transfixed them with her gorgeous brown eyes. Formerly an indoor dog (her previous pet parent was 102 years old), Muffin loved exploring rose gardens, parks and most of all, Lake Tahoe. She was a calming presence to all, and shared her wonderful spirit with us and her 14 year old doxie “sister” for the past two years, thanks to Muttville. Muffin 🌹 Dec. 2006 – Nov. 2016.

On Dec. 4th, I submitted a donation in honor of Muffin to Muttville via my employer’s Corporate Giving program.

I also want to thank Sherri, who personally coordinated our introduction to Muffin on a cold, rainy night before any photos were available. How lucky we were!

Kind regards,

Karol & family

Success Story "Rudy"

Success Story "Rudy"

Rudy was adopted in 2009 and is still going strong! Mom Patricia gives us this wonderful update:

Rudy Nureyev Jr. is about 16 years old now and a lot has happened since 2009 when Muttville rescued him. For several years Rudy was the “gallery dog” at the Frank Bette Center for the Arts in Alameda. After I stopped working there I sensed he was bored so I took him to classes and he passed his Canine Good Citizen Test with flying colors. He’s a really smart dog as well as a sweet, quiet, lap dog. His most favorite thing is being picked up and carried around. He sinks into your arms and rests his head on your shoulder. After passing his test he got a weekly gig at a local nursing home. With Rudy in their lap some of the patients, who appeared almost catatonic, would come alive. He also modeled a tux in a fashion show. I couldn’t have a more perfect dog and he has brought such joy to not just me but hundreds of others coming into the art center and at the nursing home. Thank you for saving him for me.

With Gratitude,

Patricia

Success Story Missy

Success Story Missy

Who knew Missy was such a music and TV fan! Read this wonderful update sent in by Leona and John:

I just wanted you to know that Missy is doing well. She is a most active eleven-year old. She wakes us up at 6:10 every morning so that we do not miss our morning walk with her (not as if we could not sleep in and walk her later, as we are both retired). Missy makes sure that our cats get their exercise, as well. Whenever someone is that the door, Missy is sure to announce it for us. Missy is a big Warriors fan. She is the first on the sofa in the family room when it is tele time. She also likes House Hunters, especially if the home buyers have a dog. Missy is faithful company (again on the sofa) each evening when I do my exercises. She likes listening to the music; I think that The Essex, March, Little Peggy, The Ronettes, Chiffons, The Chiffons, Betty Everett, and The Crystals are her favorite artists.

Thank you for all that you do,

Leona and John

Success Story "Mandy" 3537

Mutt mom Kelly’s short and sweet note about her senior gal Mandy says enough to warm our hearts:

I adopted Mandy in July 2016. I’m seeing her blossom more every day. She leaps in the air at dinner time, makes Scooby-Doo noises randomly, and snores like the little old lady that she is.

I love her to pieces, and she is an asset to my world.

Thanks to Muttville, for pulling Mandy from a high-kill shelter so I could adopt her.

Success Story "Sadie" 3048

Last week, we shared a wonderful tribute written by Carolyn to her daughter and her Muttville dog, Daisy. This week, it’s Carolyn and Sadie’s turn! Enjoy our first success story of the new year:

Happy New Year from Sadie and her family. I know she is thankful to have her forever home with us, and the feeling is a thousand times over for us.

We love her so much, she is my little shadow, likes to follow me, and keep me in her sight, and of course I love it too.

Many thanks for taking such good care of her, and allowing her into my life.

Lots of love and big thanks

Carolyn

Success Story "Daisy" (a.k.a. Dee Dee)

Success Story "Daisy" (a.k.a. Dee Dee)

How sweet is this? Carolyn sent us the story of her daughter Darlene and her Muttvile sweetie Daisy.

Carolyn herself is an “adopted” mutt mom of a Muttville dog named Sadie. Mother and daughter decided each to adopt a dog at around the same time 18 months ago, and both chose a senior from Muttville! Sadly, Darlene’s girl, Daisy, passed away. We’re touched by Carolyn’s tribute to Daisy:

My daughter Darlene adopted Daisy around that same time I adopted Sadie. She was a small dog, with 2 broken legs that were never properly taken care of prior to Muttville saving her.

Sorry to say Daisy passed 2 weeks ago, with a blood clot in her lung. There was no warning or anything Darlene could have done, (she is an animal health technician).

She had Daisy’s legs fixed, and nursed her to where she could walk and run. This past summer, Darlene had a very serious back operation, and little Miss Daisy, was glued to her side – the best medicine Darlene could have had for her recovery.

Darlene and her husband Leo gave that little Miss Daisy a most beautiful life, and she gave back being Darlene’s little love and nurse when she had her back surgery and during recovery.

Thank you for all you do.

Sincerely,

Carolyn, mother to Darlene, and adopted Mom to Sadie

Success Story Reba

Success Story Reba

A meaningful message perfect for the holiday season. Thank you Susan for warming our hearts with your update about Reba:

We adopted Reba from Muttville in April. I just wanted to let you know she’s fantastic and doing well. She and my 9 year old share lots of love.

We received tons of negative comments about adopting an older dog because what would we do when the dog died? Our daughter understands that pets are with us for a short time and we need to love them while they are with us. And when they die we’ll mourn but be thankful for what they’ve given us and then give another animal a home.

So happy we found Muttville.

Happy Holidays,

Susan

Success Story Lola (aka Dolly Parton)

Success Story Lola (aka Dolly Parton)

Lola says “Greetings from Boston!”:

Dolly (now Lola) is a good little traveler she made the whole flight to Boston without a peep! Luckily, the seat next to me was empty so I was able to let her out to sleep on the floor awhile. I put a blanket over her and she was snoring in seconds!

We think she definitely has picked up since being with us. She loves to go to the beach for a walk and she loves her meals. At first I had to encourage her to eat now she is waiting for her meals!

She is opening up but I think it will take awhile. She is a good little girl she loves her warm bed by the fire.

We love her, we wish we could have taken at least 3 little souls home.

Thank you for all you do.

Sincerely,

Michelle

Success Story Scooby (aka 2251)

Some stories tell us so much in a few words and pictures. Thank you Jordan for this loving tribute to Scooby:

We adopted Scooby about two and a half years ago and on November 10, he passed away from anemia.

He was only at Muttville a couple days but I just wanted to let you know he was the best dog we ever had and so thankful you guys saved him and allowed us to spend the last two and a half years with him.

Over the last couple years he established a special relationship with my wife. He understood sometimes before I did when she was feeling bad and would sit with her. If I got too close he would growl and wouldn’t let me close until things were better. We took him to Tahoe, Big Sur, and Pismo Beach. He never liked the water but liked to watch other dogs and humans run in and out of the ocean.

I just wanted to share and thank you for all the work you do, he was very special to us.

Success Story Finnegan

Success Story Finnegan

Mutt mom Amanda shares her story with Finnegan. She helped build his confidence, and with patience a perfect little mutt emerged:

I adopted Finnegan in September 2015 and we recently celebrated his adoptioniversary/birthday! There was a lot to celebrate with all the progress he has made over the past year. Finny was a special Muttville pup – so shy that the volunteers couldn’t always get him out from his hiding spots under the furniture for his daily walks. He wouldn’t make eye contact with me and kept a safe distance at first.

We originally tried speaking to him in English, Spanish, French, and Japanese since he wouldn’t respond to anyone talking to him! He still loves being under furniture and has a favorite chair he likes to nap under, but is no longer “hiding.”

Finnegan and I now go everywhere together. He is always right on my heels, following me around and staring up at me with smiles. We have become best pals. He continues to get more and more brave, sometimes even walking right up to strangers on our walks, to say hi and accept some head rubs. He spreads smiles to all of our neighbors while out and about. His coat has really grown in- it seems that with the help of nutritious food and a safe home, Finnegan is thriving and has become the fluffiest of fur balls! He does a happy dance every time I come home with lots of little jumps in the air and a BIG smile!

He is the best little roommate and I love him dearly. I don’t know if Finny was always such a shy boy or if it happened during his transition between homes, however being able to give him his forever home and work with him to become a more confident, happier pup has been an incredibly rewarding experience! Finny and I are SO happy together and I am forever grateful for Muttville.

Thank you!

Amanda

Success Story Bernard

Success Story Bernard

Moving on after the loss of a pet is hard on every family member, including the other furry kids. Janet and her family pets decided to give a chance to one lucky dog:

We had a two dog and three cat household and everything was good. The two dogs had been together for almost their entire lives. Then a little over a year ago one of the dogs, Milo, developed heart disease. And in spite of the best care we could provide he passed away in August.

We had no intention of getting another dog but Dobby, the remaining dog, was visibly lonely and upset after Milo passed. We knew finding a dog that fit into our family would be difficult. With one 11 year old dog and 3 cats from 3 to 8 years old finding a dog that would get along with everyone seemed like a tall order.

After looking long and hard we stumbled upon Muttville and realized a senior dog was just what we needed. We browsed the adoptable dogs and for some reason Bernard just jumped out at us. He was in a foster near where we live so arranged a meeting between Dobby and Bernard and have never looked back.

Bernard instantly won our hearts and over the last two months has become fully integrated into the family. He’s smart, funny, loving and a good companion to Dobby.

I sing the praises of senior dog rescue to anyone I can. Even the cats have stopped hissing at him! Muttville you rock ❤

Success Story Pumpkin (aka Darling) & Ricky

Success Story Pumpkin (aka Darling) & Ricky

It’s the magic of Muttville! Thanks to Kelli for sharing her story:

I have a soft spot for the seniors after having a 90lb dog that made it to 14 with a lot of smiles, despite his arthritis. I lost him to congestive heart failure in December and really grieved for the hole he left in my heart. I heard about Muttville and at first I thought I’d just volunteer, then I thought I’d foster, then I asked myself, “Who am I kidding, there’s NO WAY I could foster and give a dog up.” So I decided to adopt and foster.

I asked which dogs needed more medical care and saw several online and went in to see them in person. When I met Darling (now Pumpkin), she had her nose to the door, just waiting for someone to come in. I walked in, sat down and opened my arms up and she just mushed her whole body against me and I knew I had found my dog. When I got her home, she went to my shag area rug and just rubbed her face into the carpet and rolled around for a good twenty minutes in utter bliss. I got her medical records sent to me and as I read them, I just cried. She had been so severely neglected, most likely living outside on a chain her entire life. This was potentially the first time she had even been on a soft carpet.

I successfully fostered another dog a few weeks later and when I finalized the adoption, I went straight back to Muttville to pick up another foster named Ricky. He was a sweet, dopey, quiet little Cocker Spaniel who was half bald. When I got Ricky home, I realized he was LYING when he was at the shelter. He’s a total goofball with a really silly, loving and whacky personality and he’s not quiet at all. He also has the climbing capabilities of a mountain goat and partakes in what we call, “carpet swimming”. Two weeks after bringing him home, he managed to escape the yard and I ended up walking my neighborhood with his leash around my neck, crying as I was looking for, “my little baby”. I got him back that day, luckily and after we caught him sleeping with Pumpkin on the same bed (even though we have three beds). I called and adopted him. His medical records showed that he was most likely never taken to a vet prior to going to Muttville. His baldness was due to a low thyroid condition and he now has the most beautiful coat.

Now, they are both spoiled rotten and we have a happy house. I also have to get my area rug professionally cleaned every few months because of the amount of abuse it receives.

Success Story Hannah (aka Jelly Bean)

Mutt mom Sara warms our hearts with her story filled with gratitude and love:

I am compelled to share Hannah’s story because I am so grateful I am able to provide a home for this sweet girl rather than her wandering the streets as a stray when she was found.

Next month will be two and a half years since she waddled over to me at a Maddie’s Days event. She brings me so much joy and is the perfect dog for me! Everyone who meets Hannah falls in love with her sweet doggie smile and low-key attitude, and I love telling them that she was adopted through Muttville and how great it is to love a senior dog.

Thanks so much to Muttville for all you do for these doggies and for introducing me to Hannah!
