& Cheryl became the proud parents of 4-year old Andy, who was surrendered
to rescue due
to landscaping plans. Although he always lived outdoors, he quickly adjusted to
being in a
home. He bonded immediately to everyone - human, canine and feline. He is smart,
playful and gentle. Living the good life, Andy no longer sleeps alone nor spends
any love or attention. He now has a permanent home and family.

Andrew came to live with
his new family August 25th. He knew right away that his family wouldn't be hard
They have had Goldens before so they knew to let him pick my favorite spot on the

are eating because
they don t hold onto their food very well! The Toy Poodle already loves Andrew
too, but the
cats aren't so sure.

Cruiser, born the day after
Flag Day, is a true Patriotic Pup. He showed off his patriotism at the Hope Township picnic
by standing guard in his red, white and blue collar, at a booth set up to raise money for the
NYC disaster relief. Cruiser gave a little love and a lot of licks to everyone who needed some
comforting. Cruiser likes to bark his show of support when he sees a search and rescue dog

Scotty is with his third
family in just 21 months. Scotty's first family didn't pay him any attention and kept him chained
in the back yard. After 4 months with his second family it was back to rescue - he was out
of control. Scotty completed 5 weeks in boot camp and is now well behaved and happy! Scotty
is smart, loving and full of puppy exuberance!

What can the Ready's say
about a dog named Tucker? That he's the light of their lives; he brightens the darkest day
with his personality. He's an energizer bunny who at home goes non-stop but who has learned
that when they are out and about to be a perfect gentleman. He is very interested in tennis balls,
and will whine when one goes behind a piece of furniture and he can't retrieve it - never mind
that there are a dozen more laying around on the floor!

on a cold winter day in
northern new jersey,
my wife went out on a mission of mercy.
she went to evaluate a
dog with no name,
all that we knew was he was somewhat lame.
the shelter was kind they
came to his aid
but that's not a real home - he couldn't have stayed.
his past was unclear -
was he just "given up"?
such a terrible way to treat a young pup.
so we took him home -
our fosterly duty
and my wife fell in love with his masculine beauty.
our other dogs had names
but alas he had none,
after lots of debating the name "Dakota" won
he walks kind of funny
one leg out of whack
but that doesn't stop him - nothing holds him back.
as steph's birthday did
near and a present i owed her
nothing seemed better than to give her Dakota.

In March, rescue volunteers
mobilized in record time to rescue two senior stray
goldens from a kill shelter. Once
safe, however, no one wanted to adopt
them - they were both old and she was very sick. So
they came to live with Theresa. Lydia underwent two major surgeries, several grafting procedures,
and fifteen radiation treatments to rid her of cancer. Timmy, mildly epileptic, is otherwise
healthy. They are safe, they are happy, and they are very, very loved.

Three-year-old Hannah was
a featured Dog of the Month in January 2001. She was diagnosed with mild hip dysplasia
and was overweight. Out of control around food, her owners wanted her placed in a family with
older children, a stay-at-home Mom and no other dogs. This was a tough match but we found it!
Hannah now exercises daily, is on a food management plan and takes glucosamine and chondroitin
to manage her dysplasia. She even learned how to swim this summer - great for those hips! And
of course she loves the beach!
