THE STORY:

I resuced Vista 11 years ago from a shelter in St Louis. She was part of a litter of puppies that luckily were given to a no-kill shelter after the momma dog (who was a show dog) got pregnant.   In 2012, Jack picked my husband as his new human.  After visiting and volunteering at manyShelters and with an animal rescue transport organization, Jack walked up to my husband and said "I choose you."    In late 2014, Oscar came into our lives.  Oscar was a funny little Boston, as most Boston's are.  He was part of a home that didnt want him....at all, literally giving him to us after 5 minutes of meeting us.  He has some personality and health issues.  He was with us for a year, a year in which his personality turned around completely, he learned to trust and found out what a loving home was.  Oscar suffered from seizures because of a liver dysfunction.  They were mostly under control, but every so often one would happen to little Oscar. On Oct 5 2015, Oscar had a massive seizure; his little body couldnt take anymore of the seizures and he crossed the rainbow bridge in my arms.   I am so glad we rescued him and gave him the best last year we could.    

Crushed by the loss of Oscar, my husband and I said we werent going to get another dog until after the new year. Welllll.... we all know how that goes.   I was home visiting my mom, when Harvey crossed our path.  He was at a local shelter in Central PA where someone dropped off him and 2 other small breed dogs.   For anyone who is a Boston lover, the face pulled at my heartstrings.  I called my husband and sent him a picture and said "He needs rescued from the shelter and we can give him a great home".  A week later, my husband, myself and furkids were in the car to make a 6 hour 1 day trip to bring home Harvey.  

Our rescue dogs bring so much joy to our lives.  Anyone who has a rescue can and will tell you the same.  

 

Any donation, even $1 helps a rescue animal be fed, taken care of and given the hope to find a loving home and family.  Thank yoU!
