Murphy

Murphy the big, senior, chocolate lab goofball was the class clown of our rescue!  He is such a lover and a big attention hog.  He would often plow down the other rescue dogs to get front-and-center for petting! He was hilarious and we miss his youthful spirit at the rescue.  There was never a dull moment with this character around! But look at this classic picture of Murphy soaking up all of the love and attention from his new owner David.  We are happy for you Murphy!


Smiley

Smiley was adopted in January 2014 after a year at the rescue.  It was worth the wait since he hit the jackpot with his new family! Cheryl & Sean are patient and loving and they are giving Smiley the safe home and attention he needs.  They take him on daily walks in Rancho Cordova with their other dog Olin.  Smiley is very special to all of us at the rescue.  He went missing for 2 days and traveled many miles to find his way back home.  He is Superdog to all of the volunteers here.  He was found before Christmas and then got the best present of all for the New Year...a loving home.  We love & miss you Smiley! Best wishes and big thanks to Cheryl & Sean for loving our boy.


Reba McEntire

Reba & Mic were adopted by a couple in Foresthill.  Here is our recent email from the couple that adopted not one..but TWO..Old Dogs New Tricks rescue dogs:

Hi there,

It's been a little while but we've been all adapting. Reba's limp is the same but she's a lively bundle of happiness and face-licks in her new home in the woods. She and Mic are getting along just great and getting regular exercise via hikes in the trees. Both maybe took a couple of days before they were used to the regular potty and feeding routines but everyone is settled and so comfortable now.

Reba's eyes have brightened so much and she loves going for walks, albeit at a slower pace :)  Her and Laci, the smallest blonde petite old one, are very close already and are constantly at each others side.

She recently got had this rigorous little 2 mile hike to a fire lookout.She did so fantastic and slept away when she got home. Mic is completely at home in the woods and we play several times a day. We just wanted to say thank you so much again for Reba and Mic. Our family of four is bigger than we expected yet more than we could have hoped for. They are both absolutely fabulous and loving and we know they'll be so happy to live their twilight years out in the trees. Thank you!

-The Lowrys


 


Cyrus

CYRUS, NOW ELVIS
Cyrus was a sick boy that we rescued from SSPCA. It turns out that his health problems stemmed from a low thyroid. Through our friend Randi's recommendation, Cyrus was adopted within a few weeks by Paul and Cindy. They wrote these comments:
Paul and Randi renamed Cyrus to Elvis which means hope. It was not hard to change his name as he does not hear too much anyway. He is really great at watching for signs to do what you are asking him to do. He loves Paul and follows him around the house and yard while he is home. Paul and Elvis have bonded very well. Both love each other and Elvis puts up with his mom during the day while dad is out working. He is a really good boy and blends with our lifestyle and family life. His sister (our cat) was not excited to see her brother come home but now they do not even pay attention to one another.

 


Tommy

TOMMY (NOW THOMAS)

OUR BOARD MEMBER, LINDA, IS AN ANGEL. SHE ORIGINALLY FOSTERED TOMMY BUT HE HAD ENDURED SEVERAL HOMES ONLY TO BE RETURNED TO US EACH TIME. SO LINDA AND HER FRIEND SKIP OPENED THEIR HOME AND HEARTS TO TOMMY. LINDA SAYS TOMMY HAS BONDED WITH THEIR DOXIE AND THEY PLAY TOGETHER A LOT.
