|Hello and Happy Holidays!
I have been reflecting on what I am thankful for lately and I just felt
like I wanted to update you on our pup and let you know how grateful we are
When we adopted Maggie (formerly Mopsy) it was with the knowledge that she
is a sick puppy with a stage 6 heart murmur. I always make it a point to
adopt one special needs dog at a time, to give them the home they deserve,
for as long as they may live. When we visited our regular vet, he said she
was a sick little girl, who had approximately 6 months to live. We decided
to give her the absolute best 6 months of her life and she became my
constant companion and shadow.
After a rough start (she bit both my husband and son) she settled in and
only bit people who were wearing work boots. After about 6 months of
working with her to gain confidence and feel secure, she hasn't bitten
anyone since, even when startled or feeling threatened.
We are now 3 years later and she is beating the odds. She is still a
sassy, funny, affectionate and amazing little dog. I can't imagine the
last 3 years without this little Angel.
In a traditional shelter my little sweetie would have been euthanized long
before she could have been adopted. She was with you guys for 15 months
before I met her. I can't imagine my life without her and I just want to
thank you guys so much for what you do. I will forever adopt any and all
of my dogs from you guys. You are absolutely amazing and I cannot thank
you enough for being Angels that rescue Angels. I have included some
photos of my sweet Maggie, who is currently snuggling next to me and
hopping up every once in awhile to give me a kiss.
Thank you thank you thank you!!
| I met Shadow when I was
looking for a dog, but didn't immediately consider him - he was so
depressed, and while amenable to people, was not particularly interested.
It wasn't until he was placed in a foster home and I re-met him at a Bark
Around the Block event in Berkeley, that I saw who he could be.
It has been wonderful to see Shadow's personality develop over the last few
years. Some things have stayed the same - he prefers sleeping outdoors,
except in the coldest weather, and loves to dig beds for himself. Other
things have changed. He has morphed from an affable, but solitary soul to
one who sleeps on the bed and nudges for massage and pets. Perhaps best,
we moved to Colorado last summer, and he now lives on a 25-acre property,
where he can indulge his penchant for drive-by sniffing to his heart's
content and nap in the shade of the pines.
His brother Spider was adopted by a couple who ended up living about 6
blocks away in Richmond, so we were able to meet up and let the boys
reconnect occasionally. They really seemed to enjoy their short periods of
contact, and we enjoyed comparing notes on the two dogs.
Shadow was about 8 when we adopted him. He is getting more arthritic
lately, and getting around has become harder. I console myself with the
idea that we have been able to give him a good second life, and thank the
Milo Organization for introducing us.
|Hi Milo Staff,
I just wanted to give you all a HUGE thank you for bringing Cruz into our
lives! Cruz (formerly James of Naomi's litter) is an incredible puppy and
has brightened our lives in so many ways. He is intelligent, athletic,
mellow tempered, and the biggest cuddler. Cruz is already an ingrained part
of our family - we truly hit the jack pot!
We recently connected with his sister, Wren, who we now have been able to
schedule play dates with!
|Winnie (aka Cher) and BoBo (aka Elton John) in their pirate sweaters. They are much loved!
"Thanks for everything. I love my Chi-Weenies and they have a good home."
|Hi everyone at Milo, I just wanted to update you on our biggest baby pit bull boy Zeus. We adopted him from Milo almost 2yrs ago and since then he has blessed us with so much love. We adore him more than we ever could have imagined. Thanks to you guys, he was the missing link to our family and we found him! Zeus loves sleeping in the middle of us, chewing bones, playing at the dog park and just being a complete cuddle monster. Thank you for all that you do on the daily to connect people with these magical dogs. They lower our stress levels and give us something to look forward to every day :)
|Rocco has been a dream since he entered our lives 3.5 years ago. He's the
absolute sweetest boy who loves cuddles, beach days, and human snacks.
We're also close friends with Rocco's brother, Bernie; they've spent many
weekends together fighting over stuffed toys and chasing crows at Fort
Funston. Thank you, Milo and team for our bundle of joy <3
