Collin the Brittany Spaniel wants his new home

collin1Collin is a lovely Brittany Spaniel who is full of energy and love – and looking for his forever home.

He’d make a GREAT running or walking partner. If you’ve got another high energy dog or puppy, he’d be great in helping tire that one out!

Check out Collin’s Glog!

Contact Lisa Trenthem @ if you could adopt (or even provide a foster home) to this great guy.


Saturday at Hollywood Feed is always fun

On the 13th we were at the Cordova Hollywood Feed Store. The employees there are great. Always looking out for people who might be interested in adopting. Ever helpful as we set up and tear down. Great in working with adopters as they get just the right bling for their new little ones!

We had two adoptions and several other people looking who were very interested. Our adoptees were Rico and Blitzen. We had some of our usual contingent of volunteers, along with some new volunteers who are fostering Jax and Bernie.

We are always excited to see new volunteers helping! If you’d like something to do during one of our adoption events, come on out and visit with us. We’ll put you to work showing off one of our great dogs or puppies!

A great dog finds her home for the holidays

meadowframeMeadow, our lovely petite border collie mix, has found her home for the holidays!

Tyler, her new dad, found her online and fell for her stunning good looks. He did a meet and greet one day. Then Meadow needed to impress his fiance.

After a morning running in the St. Jude marathon, Meadow and her prospective mom met up. Love at first sight!

Meadow had minor surgery to remove a foreign body in one of her feet. She is recovering nicely and is set to join her new parents next weekend.

It’s great that Meadow is getting her home for the holidays. If you can open your home to one of our great dogs or puppies, please come out and see us at our upcoming adoption events – all listed on our website at

Poco is quite the hunter!

Dutch in his early days with Good Dog Rescue

Dutch in his early days with Good Dog Rescue

A couple of years ago, Good Dog Rescue had a Border Collie mix puppy named Dutch, who was pulled from the Horn Lake Shelter. Such a young puppy, Dutch still had puppy breath!

Well, as we hope for all our great dogs and puppies, Dutch was adopted by a very caring family. His dad, Jason, sends us this update.

I just wanted to send you some pictures of Poco (the dog we adopted from you almost 2 years ago).  He is happy and at home on our 10 acres in Central Louisiana.  He is the best dog.

 I want to thank you for the opportunity to adopt him.  Life wouldn’t be the same without him.  He is unbelievably smart.  He has a natural knack for treeing squirrels and retrieving.  I took him squirrel hunting on his 2nd birthday and he loved it!  Here are some pics.

Poco loves going hunting

Poplar Plaza Petco extends a warm welcome to great dogs

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.
