Leroy is only 5 months old, still just a baby! He is located in Deltona, FL.

 

 

We were asked to take Leroy after his first family dropped him off to be boarded at the vet, and decided they didn’t want him anymore… They surrendered him to the vet clinic, and then Precious Paws rescued him before he was euthanized and contacted us.

Graham ~ Adopted!

15628960_10210397541670300_374076528_o12/18/16 Update: Graham has been very patient, and it paid off! Today he found his home with Bill and Pam Kiefer of Port Orange, Florida!

10/14/2016 Update:  Handsome Graham is back with us. Unfortunately, his owner is moving and is unable to take him along. Graham is a very sweet and happy guy who does well with people and other dogs. He does like to chase the little critters, though, so a home without cats that has a fenced yard would be best.

 

 

Graham's Boo Boo is all better!

Graham’s Boo Boo is all better!

Meet Golden Graham! He was named for his gorgeous coloring and the fact that he was our first rescue that was initiated on Instagram. I’ve been calling him Graham and it seems to suit him well.
Graham was rescued from Miami-Dade Animal Services where he was picked up as a stray.  A big thanks to Jeanette and Patty Duenas for helping us to rescue this doll. He is about 7 months old. Right now he weighs 35 pounds but we expect him to fill out and grow to probably around 50 pounds or so. He’s a little on the thin side right now but I’m working on fattening him up a bit!
Graham

He is super sweet and affectionate. Graham loves to be pet and will beg for more and is also very gentle when taking treats from my hand. He gets along great with my dog and hasn’t bothered with our cats too much. He let me know when he had to go potty last night and hasn’t had any accidents in the house since we’ve had him. He has typical puppy energy and really enjoys running around the yard and playing with our dog.

He was found with a flea color embedded in his skin. The shelter had it removed and he has a sore around his neck that is healing. It doesn’t bother him one bit though! It’s starting to scab up and he’s on antibiotics for a week.

Great in the car!

Graham has been with us for a week now and is a real sweet boy.  He loves to run and play with our dog and then will sleep somewhere near wherever his human is.  He seems to be very happy and is always wagging his tail.  He loves playing with all of the dog toys and I’ve even caught him with two in his mouth at once so proud of himself.   He hasn’t had any accidents in the house.  I haven’t had him out for a walk yet so I’m not sure how he does on a leash.  I gave him a bath last week and he wasn’t too thrilled but could tell he felt much better afterwards.  His neck that was scabbed over from an imbedded flea collar is almost completely healed.  Graham will be a wonderful addition to his new family.

Graham was transported to me in Deltona so Michelle could attend a Disney event!  Woo Hoo!  He is amazing.  His boo boo on his neck is healing nicely.  I thought he would enjoy a spa day at Newman’s via James!  Graham is all puppy and loves to play.  He is incredibly affectionate and great with dogs, kids and cats!  What more could you for?

09/09/14 Update:  Scott  adopted Graham today! Scott lives in Barefoot Bay, FL and his collie mix died several months ago. Scott told me, “I’m ready!” Scott’s Mom came to meet Graham as well, and she gave him her stamp of approval – but not until the sand hill cranes in my front yard put on a show and danced for about 10 minutes! Can’t wait for Graham updates!

Gracie Belle ~ Adopted!

13330972_10154046265214792_7469467018457878408_nFrom Gracie Belle’s current owner:

In November I rescued a purebred 3.5-year-old female border collie with papers from a breeder that was looking for a home for her or was going to send her to a rescue group. Gracie had been born at the breeders and they kept her for breeding purposes. She had 4 litters of pups by the time she was 3. Although she lived in clean conditions, she had never been in a house, taken anywhere, or spent quality time with people. I adopted her with the intention of having another dog as a companion for my other rescue who is a border mix, Daisy. Unfortunately, Daisy is a border collie white Shepard mix and turns out to have the strong Shepard traits in that she does not get along with other female dogs. Daisy has started a couple of fights with Gracie and I can’ t seem to break her of doing it, so at this time I need to find a home for Gracie.

After adopting her I found out that Gracie is heart-worm positive. In fact, she was probably heart-worm positive when she had her last litter of pups! I have started her on treatment and it should be finished about the end of May. Once that happens I will need a new home for her. At that time, she will be up to date on all shots, heart-worm free and I will then have her fixed before allowing her to be placed.

Although she is a purebred border and has the classic Border collie markings she is NOT a typical border. She is timid. She does not play ball or games and does not show any interest in them. She will not herd sheep, (unless she is with my other dog Daisy while herding, otherwise she shows no interest at all.)

Gracie is very quiet and very timid since she had minimal interaction with people since birth and no outside experiences.She was used strictly for breeding. Although I have been working with her she is still timid. She is very sweet and a cuddler and just wants love and attention but is also happy just to be in the room with me.She is housebroken and has no bad habits that I can see.

She does very well on a leash and is good with people and other dogs, although a noisy family with kids could be intimidating to her. I don’t have young children so I don’t know how she would be with them. She gets along with my other dog Daisy but Daisy is the problem not Gracie.

She would be a great dog for people who want the Border collie looks but not the active personality. She has no bad habits except she loves to carry shoes and socks around. She doesn’t chew them, she just carries them.

She would also be wonderful for an older person or couple that would love to give her attention and love and wants a quiet loving pet.

Once she is available for adoption she will be clear of heartworm, fixed and up to date on all shots.


Gracie will be located in the Deltona, FL area. We will post more Photos on Facebook and updates once she arrives at TDL.

6/19/16 Update: It is official. Gracie has left the building with Charlie, a 20 year veteran who served two tours in Vietnam! Gracie’s adoption is not quite our typical story.

Charlie’s sister contacted us after recognizing that Charlie could use a great companion (he has had dogs all of his life until recently). They asked us to work our magic and let them know if we had small, mature, well mannered dog who wouldn’t jump or bark too much.

Well, Gracie may not be small, but she fit the bill and we did a trial run, to see if she could be the companion/emotional support dog he needed.

IMG_4069The process started in early June. It wasn’t long before the first update came:

“Looks like the two have become fast friends! I’m amazed at how Charlie get’s up so easily to make sure she is ready to go outside. She sleeps right by his bedside . I think they are connecting beautifully! You are an angel for recognizing how they could work for each other!”

IMG_4058

 

 

Shortly after we got the news that it was time to finalize the adoption. A beautiful new friendship and partnership had formed. We believe Gracie had a mission, and thanks to her first rescuer, Karen, she was able to come to us, and we were able to match her to Charlie. It takes a village!

14034695_10154264002919792_1143335181680373414_n8/22/2016 Update: Gracie was returned to TDL through no fault of her own. Sadly, Charlie’s health has been on the decline, and taking care of a dog became too much for him and for the staff at the facility he lives in. She was able to share a lot of happy times with him while they were together, though. <3

In happier news, Gracie wasn’t with us but a couple of days. She was adopted by Wendy and Michael of Sarasota. They lost Nico, their BC of 12 years back in February. She was a very special dog, and it was a heartbreaking experience for the whole family. They decided to wait until the end of the summer to start looking for a new dog…and voila, there was Gracie! Right on time. There will definitely be lots of updates and photos, as they are Johannah’s (Alfie’s mom’s) parents!

Daphne ~ Adopted!

13267887_10154046273589792_4759647389631884478_n Daphne is about 4 years old and weights 40lbs. She is in good health and ready to find her forever home. Here is an email from her current owner:

“I’ve said a quick prayer, committed myself to this effort and reaching out to you with a heavy heart and with shame. I hope to be able to come across to you in this email for help.  My 19-year old Cocker Spaniel, Silas, died on 4/5/16 and I brought another dog into my life too soon.

She is such a beauty; she can sit, stay, offers her paw, takes treats ever so gently, kisses galore for no reason at all, loves to just hang out on the sofa to relax and sleeps soundly all through the night right be side me. I have nothing but goodness to share about her.

She is 4-5 and weighs 40#. She has been given an excellent bill of health by my veterinarian.

The reason I’m reaching out for assistance is her energy, far more than I can match or care for at this time in my life, it is so unfortunate and I’m ashamed that I didn’t consider she would need alot of exercise.

 I’ve read almost every word on your website and I’m convinced that I’ve been divinely led to your care… and pondered the decision that I’m making today, that is to re-home her where she will have more socialization with more people (I’m single and live alone, no children and no other dogs) and where she will get to play with other dogs that she seems to love from the few outings we’ve shared.

My goal is to find this great girl a forever home and a good life that she deserves. No more shelters, no more kennels, no more chaos in her short, precious life.

From Barksdale’s owner:

It is with a heavy heart that I have to put my three-year-old Australian Shepherd mix dog up for adoption. He is a great, loving, energetic guy. However, I have to move to Washington DC for my job. There is no way that he would do well in the city. I’m afraid it would be terribly unfair and selfish of us to move him up north with us.

His name is Barksdale and he is up-to-date on shots, current on heartworm prevention, neutered, microchip, housebroken and he knows basic training commands. He’s leash trained and very, very smart. He is also great with my young daughter (18 months old), our nephew (7 years old) and our older dog (15 years old). He’s also good with larger and smaller dogs.

He is the perfect, active family dog.

They recently lost their Border Collie, Dakota, and thought fostering would be a good way to honor her memory.

Foo (Aka Mr. Foo Fighter) ~ Adopted!

Foo is an 8 month old Border Collie mix (we think border collie chihuahua as he is currently less than 20 lbs). Life hasn’t been easy for little Foo. He has scabs from being eaten up by bugs and currently has a cough (he is being treated for both right now).

12369249_10153643013624792_168998551917255450_n

Foo is scared. He wants to cuddle, wants to be your good boy, but is still learning it is okay to want all that, and that humans are nice and understanding. He is currently receiving lots of love, positive interactions, and some work on self-esteem. We expect to see him blossom quickly.

Check out his Photos on Facebook!

12/25/15 Update: Buckeye was adopted by the Jauregui family tonight! They came to meet all the pups, and their sons took to Buckeye immediately. A wonderful Christmas gift for the kids and for that lil pup.

Canolli ~ Adopted!

12308281_10153621601324792_8414185269396944825_nThe largest of the litter.

Here’s what I can share. These four fluff balls are 8 weeks old and from Alabama. They look like cavalier king charles spaniels but are too large. Some see Saint Bernard but they are too small. Some insist that they are Bermese Mountain Dogs…. still to small. They only thing we agree on is Border Collie mix, especially with their white tipped tails!
