Francis was found on the road heartworm positive. Her family not only saved her from the streets, they literally saved her life.
From rescue dog to Agility Champ!
Formerly known as Snickers. I am so thankful you posted her on Pet Finder. She stole my heart! She is almost 2 now & she has figured out the agility competitions! She had an undefeated perfect weekend at our most recent competition! She is only in level 1, but I expect great things from her… she is so smart! Thanks for finding her for me.
We renamed “Racer” to Tyson B., Racer didnt seem to fit him after we got him because he didnt do much running…in fact he didnt even like to go for walks…all he wanted to do is be in our apt. hanging out playing and laying with us. He is the best dog we have ever had! We have not yet gone to training classes but he has learned how to Sit, Lay down, stay, come, give both paws (one at a time) and just learned sit pretty…we are going to join a training class at petsmart to improve his leash skills. He loves other dogs and people especially kids!!! Thank you so much for letting us adopt such a wonderful pet to our life!!!
Have a wonderful day!
Lilly is doing great! I have been meaning to send you pictures. Lilly recently graduated from her advanced dog class at Petsmart. Her favorite trick is “High 5.” Lilly asked Santa for 100 pairs of socks for Christmas, but instead she got a fenced in back yard because she is growing so fast. Last time she was at the vet she weighed 50 lbs! Lilly is going to be retaking intermediate dog class at Petsmart on Sundays starting this week with her cousin Dixie just for fun so perhaps we will see you there. Also, since we now have a fenced in back yard I was wanting to try to get in contact with some of Lilly’s brothers and sisters to invite them over to play in the new fenced in back yard if you are are able to give away that information. Thank you so much for all your hard work. Lilly has been a very special addition to our family and that is because of you 🙂
Sincerely, James, Jen, and Lilly Kegley
Lucy is doing really well. She’s almost doubled in weight, is 90% house-trained and has been a very good girl. She likes to run around in the back yard and loves to dig holes (yikes). Once every week or two she’ll go to doggie daycare, where she’s made some dog friends. Sometimes she can be rather stubborn, and she doesn’t always like to be walked. She’ll just stop and sit down, which can be a bit aggravating. But all in all she’s becoming a great addition to our family.
Ruger has truly been an Angel for us. After the death of our 6 month old puppy -we were unsure how it would go with a new pup… he is a GREAT pup. He is so snuggly and has such great personality. Your training with him helped us get him started in obedience. He is very respectful 🙂 He and Teddi, our other AB/Pit rescu, are getting along great. She is very patient with his lack of manners b/c he is a puppy. He roughs her up pretty good. We give them “time out” but when he wants to go see her – he just stands on the couch and jumps the gate to go down the hall where she is in the bedroom.Thank you for giving us a chance with him. We LOVE him dearly. I wish you fortune and good luck for all the dogs you are trying to help in 2012. I was wondering if his little white buddy Nina ever found a home. I have thought about her a lot.
Sincerely, Christopher and Lisa Adams
Just wanted to follow up and let you know that Chloe is going great. She’s up to almost 24 lbs now, and will be starting a “fun-gility” class with one of her canine sisters next week.

Snickers (Aka: Snookie)
Thank you so much for helping Snickers (Aka: Snookie) find me!!! She is so wonderful! She starts her first real agility class in a couple of weeks! She is so smart I am sure she will be great! Thanks again for all you do to help the dogs! Tammy VanCamp
Marvin Chicken (formerly Goose) is shown above with his two favorite people. From Paula (the boys’ grandma): Gus (blond) wanted to name him “Marvin”, and my other grandson wanted to name him “Chicken,” so my son said well let’s just call him both! So when I go to my son’s house all I have to do is say “Marvin Chicken” and he comes running!
He is a very loving dog and sleeps in bed with everyone. He is a happy, happy dog and those boys absolutely love him! Thank you so much for helping them find Marvin Chicken!
From Rachel: Astro was adopted June of 2011. He and his fellow dog companion, Knuckles, are fast friends! They are hardly ever without each other. Just wanted you to see how he is doing.
Francis Marigold (black and white) is a true success story. She was found wandering the streets and she was taken to the Boone County Shelter just in case she was lost. The couple who picked her up fell in love and begged us to ‘save’ her for them. We named her Kay, had her vetted and ready to adopt – one problem: she is heart worm positive. Her new family said they didn’t care and would adopt her, share their home and love with her, and treat her heart worm in any way necessary. Now she is Francis Marigold and in love with her brother and new life. A testament to what can be done through love.
From Kevin: Our puppy, DC3, or Piper, has been a great addition to our family. She also has the nickname of ‘Hyper’ because of the energy she has every day. All she wants to do is be close and please; she is the sweetest little girl. Also, she will chase a ball until she is ready to collapse…then she’ll chase it some more. I attached a picture of her, just to show you a happy tail (I think this might be the only picture we have that isn’t blurred from her moving around too much).
