Stunning and Intelligent

Jamie Lee

What a gorgeous girl.  She looks like a German Shepherd, but her coloring makes me wonder if there’s a touch of collie in her blood!  This girl is just a baby, still has her baby teeth!  She is shy at first, and loves to hide behind her human.  She needs a confidence boost and a […]

I love that Tooth!


GiGi is about 7 years old, heartworm negative and has been very well cared for by her former owner, who passed away recently.  Lost and confused, GiGi was afraid of strangers, and we felt she didn’t stand a chance at a shelter/pound. GiGi is very affectionate, and eager to please.  Her vision is not that […]

Such a big fuss over my hair!  ~ Duke


Duke has always been adored by his owners.  Recently his man human passed away, and sadly, his woman human is very ill, and had to give him up.  His veterinary records show that he had a lot of care, even yearly bloodwork, but no one knows why he is suffering from such hair loss.  Unlike […]

Buttons Sparkles

Buttons Sparkles

For being such a small little man, this dog has a million nicknames names, Buttons, Sparkles, even Elvis!  He was labeled a fear-biter, but the minute the shelter let him out of his crate, he ran to Terri and jumped in her lap… I think he’s been there ever since!  Buttons was neutered yesterday, he […]

Gomer now Frasier

Gomer Pyle~Adopted

The shelter named him Einstein.  When I first saw his photos, I thought for sure he was an Aussie/Border Collie mix.  He was abandoned at a park, I assume someone tied him to a bench or a tree, because he seems to me to be the type of dog that would follow you to the […]

Update: I’m so proud of Eddie. He was a star at Newman’s. He was handled in and out of the crate, given his shots, and his microchip (ouch) without incident. James also gave him a much needed bath and said he was a very polite little boy! Woo Hoo! His name was Beethoven, but it […]

Do Dogs Remember?

On July 9, 2010, my accountant, Kingsley Shinner contacted me about his mother’s dog.  I’ve known Kingsley since I moved to Deltona in 1989 and every year during tax time, I visited his office.  I had met his parents, and was saddened when I learned that his mother’s health was failing.  Kingsley helped guide me […]
