It was a small band of dedicated volunteers, with a small number of adoptable dogs and puppies, who attended Good Dog Rescue’s 2nd adoption event of the weekend. Several potential adopters stopped by to visit with us and the dogs. The dogs did their best to show themselves off! Here are some pics from yesterday. Video coming soon!
A little alliteration on a Sunday afternoon isn’t a bad thing, is it? Especially after our rescue group has had a great adoption weekend (3 events in 2 days)!
Today’s event was at our favorite Petco at Poplar and Highland. We always enjoy the staff and the clients of the store make our dogs feel welcome.
Adopted today was Sebastian, the 3rd of 4 siblings we fondly call the “Tipton Pups.” He went to a great home with a couple of other grown big dogs who can teach him the ropes as he grows. And he WILL grow!
Millie went for a home visit and we’re crossing our fingers that she’ll work out well.
The adoption for Blosssom was finalized.
Bridgette joined us. We’ve had her for just a little bit – she had a litter of pups about 10 weeks ago (before we got her) and she’s in her shedding phase now … so everyone had a coat of dog hair on them. She’s starting to slow down in her normal post-partum hair loss. She is truly a fabulous young dog. Keep watch on our website for when we post her for adoption.
We had several other of our dogs and puppies join us. Enjoy the pictures below. Join us at next week’s adoption event at Hollywood Feed on Union Avenue from 11am-3pm Saturday, June 6.
Nice weather brings people and doggies out of their shell! We had a great day at Poplar Plaza Petco today, where 3 of our great dogs were adopted. Amy, Lucy Red, and Bailey went to their forever homes. We had a lot of interest on several of our other dogs and puppies as well.
We would love for you to join us at next week’s adoption event: Saturday, March 21, 2009 from 11am to 3pm at the Union Avenue Hollywood Feed Store, located at 2013 Union Avenue.
Here are some adoption and candid shots from today’s event. Hope to see YOU in our camera lens in the near future!
Adoptions right before the holidays are good for our Good Dogs that don’t have a forever home. Santa came to Petco on our Sunday Adoption event on Poplar and Highland Store. Several were out shopping for their dogs for Christmas and came by to see all our dogs….and some went home with a Good Dog.
Come see us at our upcoming adoption event – Saturday, December 27, 2008 from 10am-1pm @ the Cordova Hollywood Feed Store, 1001 N. Germantown Road, Cordova, TN.
This past Saturday we were again at Poplar Plaza Petco, at Poplar & Highland, for our regular adoption event. Even though it was the Saturday after Thanksgiving … and the 2nd day of the massive shopping after Thanksgiving … we had a lot of visitors stopping by to pet our dogs and pups and, in a couple of instances, to adopt!
Adopted were Roscoe, our young male Chihuahua, and Little Boss, our recently acquired Shih Tzu. We are hoping that Lambchop, a much too cute Corgi mix, was adopted. Her potential adoptive mom needed to introduce her to the rest of the family, namely the potential adoptive dad!
Lots of other cute pics from the day. Looking below you’ll see Roscoe being chased by Buzzy and Fuzzy, the terrible twosome who are, as Lambchop, F A R too cute! They are a dynamic duo. Make sure and look at their video debut in the VodPod at the left (Buzzy and Fuzzy and a Toy) or check it out on YouTube.
Chloe is in a couple of photos – the little rats caught her attention at one point and you could tell she’d like to get one! Stretch is also pictured, getting some well-deserved one-on-one attention. Jack dances on his hind legs for a young girl.
We have a new addition to our great dogs – Portia, the schipperke. Check out her video in the VodPod at the left, as well as her YouTube debut. She’s a fabulous dancer!
We hope to see you at one of our upcoming adoption events! Check out our website for dates listed.
Good Dog Rescue’s adoption event today resulted in 2 adoptions and one foster to adopt … so it was a good day for our great dogs!
Samantha, our petite and sweet Rottweiler/Labrador Retriever Mix, got to go to a foster home that sounds like perfection. She’ll be the 2nd dog in the home and it sounds like the other dog is as laid back as Samantha. We hope that Samantha fits in so well that she’ll move from fostered to adopted … cross your fingers for Sam!
Wuzzy is an adorable Dachshund/Poodle mix. Too cute! The family adopting Wuzzy were so excited as soon as they saw her. We wish them many happy years together.
Koda got to go home to be the only Princess in her new home. A great gentleman came in, looked directly at her, and said he just had to have her! This will be a great home for Koda, and she deserves it after the rough past few months she’s had in being turned into a shelter and then rescued … waiting for her forever home.
Just to update you, Vivian, one of our volunteers who always does so much to give foster homes to our dogs, had 4 of her fosters adopted this week. This included Tux, Wallace, Flo, and Topper. Vivian still has dogs of her own and a few more rescues, so she’s not too lonely! We’re all just really happy to see these worthy dogs go to their permanent homes.
Finally, we had a new doggie join us today – Hercules. He’s quite the little guy – what with one tooth in his mouth! He’s an older dog, but has a LOT of love to give his person/family.
Remember that next week’s event is our Beauty Shop event! You can learn to bake canine-approved Christmas Cookies and collect some holistic holiday tips about good nutrition, acupuncture, and pain management therapies for dogs. Santa will be there, so you can get that precious pooch photo with Santa! Good Dog Rescue will have some of our great dogs and puppies there. Donations will also be accepted for the benefit of Good Dog Rescue’s dogs. Cat lovers are also welcome! For more information call Pins & Needles, Angel Care’s Acupuncture Center for Animals: 385-9172 , or The Beauty Shop: 272-7111.
We were back at it again today at the Memphis Petco on Poplar Avenue near Highland. Lots of great people dropped by; some to pet our dogs and puppies, some to take a foster dog home with them, and some to adopt. The 3 hours we were there went very fast!
First our adoptions. Carly, who was one of our dog models photographed by Renee Scott of Woofography, finally found her forever home. We were so happy to see her go to such a wonderful couple. She will have many long years of much love in her new home. Then Donnie, who was one of our more recent additions, was adopted by this great young woman who just knew he was a perfect fit when she saw him. Donnie just snuggled up to her and realized he was beginning the next chapter in his great life.
We also had 3 dogs who desperately needed foster homes find their temporary spot with families today. Mushroom, Lori, and Lovey (who was so new we had no photos) went off with fosters. We are in desperate need of foster homes. Our ability to save dogs and puppies from death at high kill shelters is limited by the number of foster homes in which we can place them. If you think you could foster a puppy or dog in your home, click on our You Can Help By Fostering tab at the top of the page and check out our current list of animals who are in need of a foster home.
We also had a happy “I failed fostering” event today. Cheryl, one of our Good Dog Rescue volunteers who had been fostering Drake since we rescued him, decided (along with her family) that she just couldn’t part with him. So we’ll count Drake as adopted … and count Cheryl among the several Good Dog Rescue volunteers that have failed “Fostering 101.”
Next week we’re at the Bartlett Petco store on 6015 Stage Road on Saturday, September 6, from 1-4pm. Come join us … if you’re looking to adopt, if you’re thinking you could help by fostering, or if you just want to pet some great dogs and puppies. We’d love to chat with you.
Well, there were great good dogs and lots of nice people who came in to visit. Many applications and three adoptions.
Tupelo found a young man who was looking for a companion to go running with and was glad to go to his new forever home. One of the puppies, Shirley Temple, found a great home with a neat family. Ozzie found a great couple to play and have fun in a new home too. Then during the week we had an additional adoption and they dropped by to say hello and so we wanted to include a happy mom and Lil Bit, her new little friend.
Then there were other faces that appeared at our adoption event, including Black Beauty, Collin, Donnie, Roscoe, Drake, Buster, Mushroom, and Lilly Mae). See if there is one of these or our other great dogs and puppies you’d like to adopt and take home. Come visit us on Sunday, August 31st from 1-4 at this very same location!
Well, here we go again…yep and another great day! Six more adoptions and/or fosters today. Lots of different dogs were able to come today and show themselves off. Great volunteers and wonderful people of Memphis and the surrounding communities coming in to see our “Good Dogs”.
Chipper got to go home with a family to foster in hopes to adopt. Romeo went home with his forever family to play with the kids. Maggie was adopted by a great couple (no pic – sorry). Harper went to her forever home, following in the footsteps of Scout who was adopted yesterday. Truffle went to a home visit and it was successful, so she didn’t return. Ladybug was adopted right at the start of our event.
Some other dogs that were at the adoption event that are still available to adopt. Trixie, Tater Tot, Carly, Skeeter, Shasta, Carson, Ozzy, Patch, Streudel, Turk, and Peppi. If you’re ready to adopt a forever friend, join us at next week’s adoption event – Hollywood Feed @ 6765 Stage Road in Memphis, TN (just southwest of the intersection of Stage Road and Summer Avenue – see map).
