Sucess Stories and Memorials

Here's why we do what we do: These wonderful dogs have found happy, loving homes. Please read their uplifting stories.



Barclay had only a few more minutes to live when we rescued him from the shelter. He came to us without knowing the joys of playing with toys or other puppy stuff. His personality quickly came out, and he became a lively, affectionate boy. Barclay now lives with his new family in Central Texas, and is enjoying his puppyhood.



Toys used to be Kayla's favorite things - now her favorites are Megan and Hannah, her two girls. Kayla was with us for over a year, and is now happily in her new home. Her love of children and her gentle nature are rewarded with lots of tender grooming and primping from Megan, and squeals from Hannah.


Bear, one of the Bastrop Bunch puppies, was adopted by a family in Georgetown. The kids took to him right away, and their little girl calls him "Little Bear" after one of her favorite stories. Sam the dog also liked Bear from the start, and "mothers" him, following him around the yard and leaving kisses on his head.



Except for when she was in the shelter, Taz was never as melancholy as she looks in this photo. Taz is an exuberant little girl, who loves people, and gives great stand-up hugs. She has found a wonderful home with a very nice man in Austin, who pampers and spoils her as much as she likes. Taz is glad to be an inside dog, and to have someone all to herself to love.



Bentley is one of the coolest dogs we've ever had in rescue. He was with us for over a year before finding a family who really appreciates his laid back attitude. We know he is very loved and cared for in his new home.



Kai came from Williamson County shelter.  He was adopted over a year ago and is living with his new dog partner and Ron and Sandy, his new guardians, who are on-going supporters or our rescue efforts. 


Senta is a sweet, good-natured girl. She was rescued from the shelter after being turned in by her previous owners. Although, with her wonderful personality and striking looks, it's hard to understand how anyone would give her up.  She was adopted by a very nice lady who previously adopted a German Shepherd mix from our group.  Now Senta has an adopted brother to play with, and a very caring adopted mother to care for her.



Zoe was one of six puppies we rescued from starvation from a ranch in Bastrop County. She was the 'runt' of the litter, and had a few more challenges than the other puppies. She was so tiny, and it took her a while to recover from her ordeal. Zoe recovered beautifully to become a sweet, loving little puppy. She can't get enough of being held and loved, and she is getting plenty of attention in her new home. She has a built-in doggy pal, Duke, and loves to go in and out of the cat door.



MoJo was the biggest of the Bastrop Bunch of puppies, so he needed a special home - and he got one. His family wanted a dog who would be BIG, and MoJo definitely fits the bill. He is ready to romp and play with his two girls, and be loved on by the whole family. He even likes the cat!



Rain was destined to be destroyed at the shelter when we swooped in to rescue her. Before we could even have her spayed and get her out, though, we got a call from a lady who wanted to adopt her. Rain went directly from the shelter to her new home, and is now enjoying the good life with the lady's Jack Russell Terrier.


Loki was a very popular little girl, and received a lot of interest when she came to us. She was adopted into the perfect home for her with a very attentive, nice guy who dotes on her, and gives her plenty of plate time and affection. He even brings her to visit us at our adoption days.


Emma was a scared, sick little puppy when she came to us from the shelter. Over the next few days, her cold cleared up, and we discovered her love of other dogs. She loves to romp and play, and be cuddled by her people. She went to live with a fireman and his wife, and her new friend, a little black Pomeranian named Cole.
