New Foster Puppy ~ Meet Dora!

Meet Dora, a 15lbs, 12/13 week old black lab/shepherd mix of some kind. She is the only female and the runt of her litter of 4 who came to Mutts Matter Rescue when she was 8wks old. She is currently looking for her forever home, could that be you?

Dora

Dora, is a super sweet and super smart little girl who will do almost anything for food! She is a dream to work with and train because of her motivation to work for food. Dora is already potty trained, crate trained, and knows how to “Sit,” “Touch” (touches her nose to the palm of your hand), “Down” and is even learning “Paw” which we may change to a “High-Five” behavior if she’s with us long enough.

Speaking of food, Dora is a VACUUM. She gobbles down her food so fast you question if you had even fed her at all. She is now eating her food strictly out of food dispensing “busy” toys. This is to help slow her eating process down while also enriching her ever growing mind.

Dora is a FANTASTIC cuddle buddy. She loves to curl right up next to you on the couch for a good nap, and if you’ll let her, she’s be sleeping in bed with you every night as well. Currently she is sleeping through the night on a dog bed that is on the floor in the bedroom.

Gypsy Girl Has Been Adopted!

We did it! Almost 2 months after I picked up a very shy and timid puppy from the vets office to begin her foster life in our home, Gypsy has been adopted!

Gypsy the second day we had her.

Gypsy had come a long way since the first day I picked her up. From the girl who wanted nothing more than to hide in her crate or shy away from anyone who wasn’t on 4 legs to the girl who would happily greet you with a wagging tail and kisses to say “hi” when you walked in the door. Her confidence grew more and more everyday she was with me. In the final weeks I really got to see WHO Gypsy really was. She was a very calm, sweet, and somewhat goofy little girl. She loved to play fetch, with anything really but especially tennis balls and would gladly bring the ball back to you, drop it in your lap, and wait for the next throw. She has a beautiful smile that could just melt your heart and that’s exactly what she did to her new forever family. (See below)

Gypsy’s Happy Face!

Gypsy was lucky enough to be adopted into a lovely family that was looking for a playmate for their current dog Rosie. Gypsy and Rosie hit it off wonderfully at their meet and greet and I’m sure will be the best of friends as they go through life being spoiled by Mr & Mrs. M. and their two daughters. Gypsy’s 2 new human-sisters were also very excited that Gypsy would be joining the family and were sharing stories about how they will be taking her on walks and playing catch with her when they get home. I truly believe that Gypsy has found her perfect forever family and couldn’t be happier for her.

I will miss you tons my sweet Gypsy girl. You’ve definitely got a spot in my heart that is forever yours. Congratulations to you and your new family, I know you will be the perfect dog for them!

You just can’t get enough of puppies who love to cuddle. Gypsy and Bandit can be caught at almost anytime of the day taking naps together. It is just too cute to explain without showing you some pictures, take a look!

Photo Friday ~ Baylee Gets Her Learners

I just love getting updates and pictures from my past foster dogs new families! This week I received these two pictures of Baylee (formerly Sabrina) learning how to drive. Her new mom say’s:

“She only has her learners so that’s why she still needs an “adult” to drive with her for a while!”

Sweet Luke ~ Adopted!

That’s right folks, lucky boy Luke has found his forever home! Some of you guessed right away from the picture I posted Friday. That was Luke and his new adoptive brother Apollo enjoying the now daily ritual of people watching from their front door.

According to his new momma, Luke is fitting right in. He is enjoying his new bed…

Just lounging with my brother.

Luke’s new family say’s that

“The boys have been having fun! …As you can see they tire each other out pretty well.”

Apollo taking a much needed nap after ruf housing with Luke all day.

Thoroughly enjoying his new life like any rescue dog should, I couldn’t be happier for Luke. It seems that this was a perfect match for him and his new family. Can’t wait to hear about all the adventures they’ll be having in the future!

I love my new brother.

Congratulations Luke, you deserve it!
