it’s relatively difficult to photograph this highly interactive creature awake. Because when she’s playful she is a blur, and when she’s chill she likes to press her forehead against us. I held her back a moment for this shot before going in for the hug. this is a therapy dog, with or without the credentials. (just don’t ask the garden beds) #nationalrescuedogday#bigdoggy#doberdor#sweetiepup#imahugger also forever RIP Marleyface. how lucky she was with us so long. I am grateful because they rescue me on the reg and don’t even know :D #adoptdontshop#rescuedog
Oh my goodness this story came up on FB memories fr years ago 💕😭 I have to share WOW!! I have really come to love our rescue dog Darcy - it has only been 5 weeks since she came to live with us, but in that time she has learned to come, stay, sit, and give her paw ( at least inside the house I haven't had as much chance to work with her outside) she has learned to trust us, but having lived on the streets at one point, she still can be skittery outside, especially if she hears a noise - So last night we got home very late and I took her for a walk - on the way back something spooked her and she lunged forward and the leash got away from me - my heart immediately sank - my mind was racing,"would she run in fear? Would I be able to catch her? Would she get hurt? Would I lose her forever?" But then Without thinking, Instead of chasing her, I opened my arms as wide as I could and I shouted, "Darcy I love you!!" and fell to my knees - She immediately stopped in her tracks and looked deeply into my eyes and then she turned and ran into my arms and kissed me - I share this story because it occurred to me that many of us are just like Darcy, we have been wounded, discarded, not properly loved and left defensive, choosing to distrust and to fend for ourselves - along the way we have learned to be fearful and become skittery, ready to run at any moment, but I challenge you to really look deeply into the eyes of Jesus, I promise you He is right there in the dark with you and His arms are wide open - He is shouting to you, "I love you!!" And he waits there on His knees for you to turn and to run to Him [this Dog has taught me many things, but last night God used her to speak directly into my soul.] #rescuedog#adopted#loved#rescuedogsofinstagram#mylife#amazingrace#womenintheword#dailydevotional#christian#speak#justspeak#writersofinstagram#writing#writingcommunity#bloggerlife#bloggersofinstagram#gahhhh#authorsofinstagram#authors#thinkaboutthat#devotions#encouragement#instagood#godspeaks#iamlistening#inspiration#writingprompts#everydaymoments#myheart
Did I ever tell you the story about how Peggy came into our lives?
She was left tied up in a train station some work commuters saw that she was still tied up on their way back from home so they brought her in to the vets where I work
It was a shame for her to be stuck in the kennels at work over the weekend so I asked my now hubby if I could bring her home for the weekend and.........well she never left.
She worked her charm on my now hubby and he became besotted with her.
Meet our 11th foster pup Monty 😍
He is about 6 months old, weighs 4kg and he is a happy and lovely pup. Monty was found with his siblings on the streets of Crete. His brothers are still in the shelter looking for their forever homes as well.
He LOVES every human and getting love and attention means the world to him ❤️
Black dogs are often having a hard time to find a home, but he is gorgeous, isn't he?! I mean just look at his fluffy ears!!
He reminded you of a bear cub, koala and bat so far.
What do you think fits him best? 🐻🐨🦇 #adoptme#fosterpup
