So I was originally rescued by another group but then they decided I didn’t quite fit into their group. So I ended up with SRT who had a wonderful foster family who wanted to foster me.

I can’t understand why my former family didn’t want me now that I’m almost fourteen years old.

At SRT, it really was All About Me! Hugs – Ruffles

At SRT, it really was All About Me! Hugs – Elle Rose

** My New Family ** Rio

           

I couldn’t believe my first owners turned me into a shelter because I was so low-key and laid back. Well, my new parents, Nicholas and Laura, think I’m perfect. They think I’m the most relaxed mellow dog which was just what they wanted. I even have a little four-legged kitten named Lord Vader as a friend. We get along fine–we’re both laid back. Mom and Dad think I’m perfect for their home and I think they are perfect too. At SRT, it really was All About Me! Hugs – Rio

** My New Family ** Breezy (formerly Penny Lane)

                        

My new mom and dad, Joann and Shawn decided they wanted to help SRT by fostering. I wasn’t with them more than one week, when they decided I was just too precious to let go.

I’m living with my new mom and dad, Dawn and Dennis in Austin. My life has certainly improved since SRT rescued me from that shelter.

They think I’m their perfect one-eyed sweetheart. At SRT, it really was All About Me! Hugs – Sophie Sue

** My New Family ** Peanut (previously Loki)

          

Wow, I have a new family already. Mom and dad, Angela and Thomas, decided little three-legged Delia who they rescued a few years ago needed a playmate. She doesn’t always like new dogs, but she liked me just fine. We’re already playing together. But, the best part is that I have three human siblings and I am getting lots and lots of cuddle time. My feet barely touch the floor. At SRT, it really was All About Me! Hugs – Peanut

** My New Family ** Miles

       

My new mom, Jacklyn, said she couldn’t imagine taking me away from my new buddy Walt. We take turns chasing each other around the house and yard. She said looking at my sweet face just makes her smile. She’s good at finding my favorite toys which I hide under the throws on the couch or under the covers in the human bed. She said she absolutely loves me. Which is good, because I love her and Walt too. At SRT, it really as All About Me! Hugs – Miles

** My New Family ** Scout (previously Minni)

When we’re not out walking, we are hanging out together. Much better than life on the streets. At SRT, it really was All About Me! Hugs – Scout

** My New Family ** Naveen

         

It was love at first sight with my new human sister. She’s decided that I should be Prince Naveen.

Hugs – Timmy

 

** My New Family ** Little Bean (previously Karen)
