Just wanted to send an about one of the AFH babies! We adopted Emmett (one of the “Twilight”-named pups) back in the spring of 2011. We kept the name, and Emmett is now a sweet, middle aged little guy who loves to snuggle, do his own thing (he’s not a big fan of hanging with our other dogs – he’s a real people dog, LOL), and has been the best, protective big brother to his human sister that came along in the fall of 2012. We are so grateful for him! Pics below – the one pic of him from the posting when he was up for adoption, and a current picture of him snuggling (he’s got a little bit of old-man face now <3)
Wanted to drop a note that after 10 years, we are still loving on our girl Scrappy from A Forever Home. She was adopted under the name Smoky Girl…We recently said a very sad goodbye to her brother of 14 years, Scruffy, and I came across your website in beginning my search for a new pup to love.
I attached some recent pictures of our girl Scrappy (the smaller of the two pups in the pictures). She still loves to chew socks, clothes, couches (we’ve been through a few thanks to her), blankets (which doesn’t prevent us from letting her sleep in our (her?) bed every night), etc. She jumps on our kitchen table when we’re not looking and her 20lb self can even jump onto our kitchen counters! Little troublemaker that she is (we still tell ourselves that her 11 year old self will grow out of the puppy phase at SOME point :-), she is the best worst dog ever!
Jokes aside, all is well. Since her adoption, she is helping us raise 4 kids (one set of twins in there) and loves to play fetch every day. Even when her arthritis kicks in and we have to give her the occasional Rimadyl, she is in good spirits. We also moved out of the city a few years ago and now she has a huge yard for playing and exploring.
Thanks for giving two graduate students the opportunity to share our young lives with this pup 10 years ago. She’s wonderfully spoiled by us, but we are equally spoiled by her as well 🙂
Zoe was adopted as a pup and returned to AFH recently. As luck would have it, her brother Rory, adopted as a pup as well, was looking for a new friend. Rory’s mom happened to be looking on our website when she saw a familiar face. Both Zoe and Rory are now happily living together in their forever home!
…Hambone is the long haired dachshund and basset hound mix from A Forever Home. He’s 13.5 years old, and has lost 25 pounds from his original obese weight…Hambone is still kickin’ and living the good life. I have also rescued another dog, a golden retriever/chow chow mix that I’ve named Casserole…Here they are hanging out together! I am also in regular contact with Hambone’s foster mom, Suzanne. 🙂
Just wanted you to know Charlie is doing great in his new forever home. We just love and adore him!!! Thanks again for all your help!! Jenny and Matt. 🙂
…She is a member of the family now and getting settled in nicely. We have noticed in a short time that she is growing vertically, as evident while trying to get under the front screen door; week one easy, week three not so much…We have a one step stool in the kitchen that she has taught herself to climb up on and sit like a lion in a circus. She also uses it as a perch to pounce on her toys…She is still a snuggler and loves tummy rubs, when she isn’t all excited and ready to play. We finally saw a posting of May on Facebook so got a chance to see March’s Mom. Now when March gets all excited Christine says March is being “all Pitty.” We have a good laugh about it as we reach for the closet toy to help distract those puppy teeth away from our fingers and toes. We have a big week coming up, we start some one-on-one puppy training… I have attached a few more…of a bigger March. We call her a cat-dog now, as she likes to perch on the couch to look out the window. She has also been kayaking and the B+W photo is from a beach house in Wilmington, NC this past Christmas. She is about 45lbs now but still loves to be picked up and held.
Rex(FKA Simon), and Max – my 2 favorite AFH Boys!
I will donate today in their names! They are alive and well, and spoiled rotten 😊 Thanks, Tere
