Hello, AFH! Our forever pups are doing great here in Florida. Buster (the blonde) is 10 and doing great, although his visits to the senior center as a hospice therapy dog didn’t agree with his sensitive skin so the vet suggested this nifty protective outfit. I can’t say he loves it. Kermit is 7 and still a hilarious curmudgeon. He is never without a toy in his mouth. He’s pictured here with his beloved bat from Halloween. Thank you for giving us these wonderful pups who have brought us so much joy!!!

One year ago we were honored to adopt Hattie (aka “Flo”). She is such a sweet girl, and also very full of energy, which is great for her Agility training! I just wanted to let A Forever Home know how special this little girl is, how loved she is, and how blessed we feel. Here are a few pictures of her (she is the little red/white hound mix), from posing with her two “sisters”, Lottie and Zaina, to cuddling, laying in the sun, and in Agility class. Oh….and also a picture of the perfect heart on her side. Thank you again for this wonderful bundle of sweet energy!

Hi! Yes, we adopted Cleo (formerly Sabrina) through AFH in 2013. We actually have two AFH dogs so it took me a minute to figure out which one you meant. Here are some photos – Cleo is the black one. She’s very sweet and has been great with our kids. She loves to burrow and is always looking for something soft to snuggle into. As you can see, she is inseparable from our other dog, Kyla, who we adopted in 2012. Cleo is healthy and well-behaved (but she does like to bark!). The vet has warned us to keep an eye on her back legs because her long body puts some pressure on her hips. But so far so good. We hope your Mister Milton is also doing well. Cleo missed her siblings a lot when we first brought her home back in 2013! Best, Kim
Over the years we’ve been blessed by family dogs: Carmen, Audrey (A Forever Home), Kingston and Lila (A Forever Home). While losing a pet is emotionally devastating, finding the right pet can be tremendously uplifting! After Audrey died, we realized Kingston sorely missed and needed a companion, so our daughter began searching for a puppy. We turned to A Forever Home, as it offered a reliable network of families fostering puppies. Upon identifying possible mates, we rode with Kingston to meet them. What better place than a spacious, fenced backyard for Lila and Kingston to get acquainted! Lila was fostered by a family whose friendly, male pup helped her adapt to living inside and out. Our dogs played together for over an hour. Lila won Kingston’s heart and ours too. Today Lila leads our pack (as Kingston is gone) and brings joy and unconditional love to us all.
Hello! My name is Shayna, and my husband, Lucas, and I adopted our little Sadie a little over a year ago from A Forever Home. We just adore her. She melted our hearts at the first moment we met, and I just wanted to send a few photos of her over the past year. She loves snuggling and playing with her brother, Winston! Thank you so much for making the Ford Family the “FoUrd” Family! Warmly, Shayna
Hello, friends! My name is Chewie, and I’m a very good boy! My parents tell me I’m the sweetest, most loving pup in the world! Soon after AFH rescued me from an Alabama puppy mill, my family adopted me, and I’ve been living the good life ever since with my parents and my Maltese sister, Abby. My favorite activities include snuggling on the couch, napping, belly rubs, and most of all, eating tasty treats. I love everyone I meet, and I’m especially thankful for the wonderful AFH volunteers who helped me find my forever home! My family and I wish everyone a very happy holiday season!
It is our pleasure to help. You fostered our “puppies,” now 10.5. Homer and Chena (Dusty and Franny as they were known then) have been a constant joy, even though Chena is a medical mess (pancreatic enzyme deficiencies and diabetes, heart murmur, etc.). They are the sweetest dogs and we love them to pieces.
We appreciate your hard work and efforts to help the creatures.

Chewie came into our lives a little over three years ago. We had just started our casual search when my husband came across his sweet face online. He’s been our Forever dog ever since. Our youngest of three daughters, Caroline, pictured here, always rubs his face and says, “You’re such a cute dog!” He is so lovable, sweet, and happy that I recently began to think about sharing him with others as a Therapy Dog. He is currently undergoing special training to receive his certification, and the company with whom he and I are training have said he would be phenomenal at this. I can’t wait to share his sweetness with those who are in need of a Chewie cuddle. Thank you for all that you do for canines and families alike. Our family certainly would not be the same without him.
Just wanted to send a photo and update from my beautiful boy Gunner (Alexa’s Benny). Gunner is a rambunctious four month old, who loves to play fetch and go on really long walks with mom. His favorite snacks are Gibson’s back strips and peanut butter. He’s doing really great with potty training and following the rules of the house. He’s very friendly and loves meeting new people especially kiddos! He loves his stuffed Alligator Albert and his stuffed Pheasant Philbert. Gunner loves spending time at daycare and can’t wait for puppy kindergarten. I look forward to bringing him to my dog friendly office once he learns 9-5 manners, lol. I want to thank your team for bringing Gunner into my life. He’s been a wonderful addition to the family and we all love him so so much. Follow him on Instagram: gunner___point
Hi everyone! As we are approaching Thanksgiving, I thought it was the perfect time to send a letter from home. 7 years ago, we adopted a rescue from your organization, who had started as Fiona, changed to Keisha during her first adoption, back to Fiona upon her return to your group, until one day we walked in and were blessed to find her. Her name for the past 7 years has been Annie aka Little Orphan Annie. We adopted Annie while we had one child and I was 7 months pregnant with our second. Three years after the birth of our second child, we welcomed identical twins to our family. Annie is beyond a blessing to this large family. We could not have asked for a more loving, patient dog sibling to all four of our boys. She is the best friend to every member of this family and true gift. We are thankful every day that she chose us.
Happy Thanksgiving, The Winter family
Good afternoon, We just wanted to share some update pictures of Ham (now Ham Solo) with his new sister and family. He is such a sweet puppy! He is so smart and is learning commands even before classes have started! He also is a big cuddler with us and with his sister Lola! I see that the rest of the Italian Delight lifter is still up for adoption. We met with them all and they were all super sweet pups. If you need any helping spread the word to get them adopted we are willing to help in any way we can!
Thank you for bringing us our little Ham Solo! The Townsend family 💜
