Jewel

#HappyFriday from Jewel! Isn’t she #beautiful? She’s a sweet 10 month old #boxer #puppy, and I love spending time her.  She’s one of my best friends, for sure! She’s deaf so her ears don’t work but her #heart sure does! Jewel is super smart and already knows some hand signals, but she’s anxious to learn more with the right owner. She needs (and deserves) a #furever #home with deaf #dog experience where she can be the only dog. (She wants all the #LOVE for herself, and I certainly don’t blame her.) Will #adopt this precious pup? If you are interested in adopting her, get at me, dawg! Comment or DM me here or tweet my Mama @kelsey_cruz. She is from @morrisanimalrefuge and needs a wonderful #home so you can always email them directly from their web site morrisanimalrefuge.org to learn more about #Jewel and how you can #adoptnotshop her. And remember, #KING is #wheredogsrule.

Pax

Meet Pax, 1 year old #Labrador #boxer mix #puppy! Isn’t he #adorable? He’s sweet and #friendly and LOVES to cuddle! He is also great with others #dogs, good with people once he gets to know them, and enjoys playing fetch. Although Pax was on death row, angels answered and placed him in foster care where he’ll be until he finds his #furever #home. He would do best in a home with no #cats or kids under 14 years old. Will you #adopt him and give him the home he wants and deserves? If you are interested in adopting him, get at me, dawg! Comment or DM me here or tweet my Mama @kelsey_cruz. He is from #RescueDogsMatch and needs a wonderful #home so you can always email them directly at info@rescuedogsmatch.com to learn more about #Pax and how you can #adoptnotshop him. And remember, #KING is #wheredogsrule.

#FureverFriday: Ponyboy and his adoption story

IMG_0950(1).jpg

It’s ‪#‎FureverFriday so King gets a toy break and I – an adopted #dog – get to tell my adoption story: My name is Ponyboy (@the.prancing.ponyboy), and I am a #pitbull #boxer (just like my buddy #King). I don’t remember everything before being adopted, but I do remember loneliness, fear, and hunger. It was #NYC in #August, and the heat hurt my feet and made me so tired but I had to press on and find #food. Fortunately, people from @nycacc found me, brought me to a #kennel, and asked me to do a lot of things to test me. I wanted to make them #happy, so I jumped a lot and tried to wag my tail, but I was so hungry I kept falling. (I only weighed 20 pounds that #summer.) The day my mom came to the #shelter, they told her they weren’t sure where I had come from. They thought I had escaped from a fighting ring or that I was abandoned, but since I had been found on the street, there was no way to know for sure. She seemed unsure because the tag on my kennel said I needed lots of mental stimulation, and she was a first time #pet owner. But when she came up to me, I jumped and put my paws against her hands and said “Please” with my eyes and tilted head. That was that; my mom took me home the next day, and I have been the happiest #boy ever since. I #love #food, laying on my mom while she reads, road trips with my parents, and hiking. Most of all, I love people. Even though they have hurt me, they have also loved and saved me. I am a #therapy dog and help autistic children, veterans, and the elderly. Soon after my mom got me, she decided a name must have a meaning. She always thought she’d name her dog #Sodapop from #TheOutsiders, but when got to know me, she decided on #Ponyboy. She says I stayed gold. I already have a #furever home, but if you are interested in ‪#‎adopting any of our friends you met this week, get at me, dawg! Comment or DM me here or tweet King @wheredogsrule. There are so many ‪#‎dogs in need of a home, and we would jump (literally) at the chance to connect you to them. Every Friday, King drops the mic for an adopted friend of his to share his/her story. If you want to share yours, contact him. And remember, #KING is #wheredogsrule.

#FureverFriday: Henry and his adoption story

IMG_20150525_194104

It’s #FureverFriday! Now normally another dog tells his/her adoption story so I can take a toy break, but everyone has been bugging me for my #rescue story so here it is: My name is #Henry, and I am a two year old #pitbull #boxer mix. (I know, I know, you thought my name was King, right? That’s my nickname because I rule the house. My parents call me #KingHenry – King for short – and my Mama even has a #crown tattooed on her wrist.) But before I was King, I was #Emery from @MorrisAnimalRefuge. A nice man took me to the #shelter after he found me tied up on a construction site in the #rain. Mama doesn’t know how long I was there, but she said it was at least two days because the man saw me one day, but left me there because he thought someone was coming back for me. Luckily, he came back and took me to Morris where I received lots of TLC, made tons of friends (obviously), and met my Mama. I remember the day we met like it was yesterday: She was wearing a ratty green sweatshirt and glasses (that I later destroyed), and I loved her the moment I saw her. Four days after we met (and after I was neutered), she took me home where I chewed her carpet, ate a lot of food, pooped and peed all over her apartment, slept a lot, ate some remote controls and my dog bed, threw up some remote controls and my dog bed, and fell madly in love with her and her #family and never looked back. I love bandanas, going on walks, destroying $13 toys in 6 minutes, sleeping under covers, and crying under the bed until someone plays with me. I am the #happiest boy in the world, and I want every #dog to know the #joy, #comfort, #warmth, and #love that comes from having a family. I already have a #furever #home, but if you are interested in #adopting #Bruce or #Poppy or any of my other friends you’ve met, get at me, dawg! Comment or DM me here or tweet me @wheredogsrule. There are so many #dogs in need of a furever home, and I would jump (literally) at the chance to connect you to them. Every #Friday, I drop the mic for an adopted #friend to share his/her rescue story. If you want to share yours, contact me. And remember, #KING is #wheredogsrule.

Buddy

buddy

Meet Buddy! He is a #Boxer #Pitbull mix (like me!) and is between 6 months – 1 year old. He is a big boy (55 pounds!), and I love playing with him because we are pretty much the same size and I don’t have to worry about being too rough with him. He is SO goofy and playful and friendly. Like me, his size means NOTHING when it comes to snuggling with his human friends. He is such a lap dog and has no qualms with curling up on your lap as you eat, read, or do work on your computer. Buddy can live with older children and other #dogs, but the verdict is still out on #cats. He was surrendered because his family had a new baby and could not care for both. If you are interested in adopting him, get at me, dawg! Comment or DM me here or tweet me @wheredogsrule. He is a @phillypaws baby in need of a wonderful #home so you can always email them directly at dogs@phillypaws.org to learn more about my buddy #Buddy and how you can #ADOPT him. And remember, #KING is #wheredogsrule.
