We really do have the best adopters!

Weeble and Wobble

In mid February of 2011, we received a litter of pups, Weeble, Wobble, Wiggle and Waggle.

Wiggle and Waggle were adopted on 02/19/11 to separate homes, Weeble was adopted on 02/23/11 and Wobble on 02/26/11.

It was about six months later, we learned that Weeble was going to be returned by his family, because they simply weren’t ready for the bounciness of an adolescent dog.  Although we offered many suggestions to burn the young dog’s energy, the family could not meet the dog’s needs, after all, they were a very busy family.

It doesn’t happen often, but when a dog is returned, our hearts sink.  We feel like we have failed.  Common sense dictates that we can’t be everywhere all of the time for our dogs.  We trust that if there is a problem, we’ll receive a phone call, but there are times where owners are embarrassed, discouraged, or afraid to contact us.  By the time we do get that call, the owners have already made up their minds.  We are then faced with the fact that what’s best for the dog is for the dog to be re-homed.  Heavy sigh.

The first thing we did was contact the families who had adopted Weeble’s litter mates, and Wobble’s family strongly expressed an interest in her.  Not only did they adopt Weeble, the two pups, now full-grown are… well… let the photos do the talking! See their album on facebook.

Our adopters are truly amazing, and we are so blessed.  Thank you Huth Family!

    Thank you so much for doing this story. It brought tears to my eyes because we just truly love and care for them so much. We are so thankful to your organization for all of the dogs that you save, and especially greatful that you saved our girls. No, adopting a dog is not easy – not a decision to take lightly – but in the end, totally worth all of the training, cleaning, and hair pulling everyone goes through in the beginning!!! We are blessed to have Weeble and Wobble – they are a perfect fit.
    You do good work 🙂 and we are happy to support you and be a part of The DogLiberator family!
    All the best!
