Animal Success Stories

hi there! I would like to submit a success story! I adopted Angelina (Angie) in June 2010 and I cannot express just how much joy she has brought to myself and my family. She is such a love bug, all she wants to do is cuddle. She is very friendly to strangers and does not have trouble with any other dogs. I adopted another rescue dog,Lilly, a Chihuahua, about a year ago and the two of them get along thick as thieves! I just want to express my heartfelt thanks and appreciation for all Wag on Inn does! Please put Angie up on your "Success" page!
I just wondered why you don't show Inkwell as a sucess story? We adopted him in December 2011 when he was being fostered at Camp Bow Wow, and 7 months later he is one of the biggest success stories you could imagine. Poor Inky was a nervous wreck when we got him, I dont know what happened to him before we got him, but he was afraid of everything and we struggled with biting issues. In fact, I know that Inky was returned from one adoptive home for biting issues, even though that was downplayed when we were adopting him. We spent a lot of time working with him, we took the trouble to get a dog behaviorist involved, we got him on medication, and today he is a different dog, you would not recognize him!! He's happy, he's put on weight, he loves his two dog sisters and his two cat sisters. He is able to go in and out whenever he wants to through the dog door into the fenced yard. he eats good, healthy food, he has lots of toys and he sleeps on the big bed with his mom and dad. I think Inky deserves a place in the success stories, we've worked very hard, he's worked very hard and today life is good for him. He even took a trip to Cape Cod with us in March! We took all three dogs and stayed at a dog friendly B&B, and we had a blast. Inky's life will only continue to improve, and I thought maybe someone from Wag On Inn would check in on him since we adopted him but no one has, so I thought I would tell you myself.
So sorry it has taken me so long to write but just wanted to update you on Zephyr with our family.
He is doing very well with us and our kids absolutely adore him..very playful and loyal to us already. We spent some money and enclosed our back yard that is an acre and he loves to run throughout our yard.
As I type he is a couple of feet from my desk napping. We have been doing some training and he only play bites with myself and Cynthia and is doing great with my kids. He really is a Prince as you had told me before.
We have taken him to Pet Smart for a teeth cleaning and a couple of baths. His coat looks great as we changed to a more nutritional dog food for him that he seems to love.
Again thank you for taking care of him and we hope you are doing well.
Please pass this on to anyone you would like from wag on inn rescue.
McDougal is adjusting very well in his new home. The transition was a bit jarring for both of us, admittedly. The first night he needed constant attention as he'd begun to grow attached to my Brother and Sister-in-law. The following day was trying, admittedly, as he got out of the house three times. The third time we weren't sure if we'd find him, but when I called out his name he held still so we could finally get him back home. After that ordeal it was a matter of him adjusting to the house. He went through some separation anxiety for a little while and we tried to use a cage, but that didn't work. He constantly whined and attempted to escape, so we decided to get rid of it in the fear of him hurting himself or worse.
It's now been nearly 2 months to the day he's been with us and we've seen such a transformation in him. He's formed a very strong bond with myself, my Mom, and my girlfriend. Not so much with the cats yet, but hopefully that'll change in another few months. When we first took him into our home he was timid and shy. Now that he has toys of his own, he loves to play.
I'll admit there was a brief period when I felt it in the best interest of McDougal to give him up and hope someone else would take him in, but I and everyone else around me decided to push through it and the result is incredible. When we walk and I tell him "let's go home", he starts running for the house and knows exactly where it is. He absolutely loves it here, he loves us, and we love him. Thank you and your organization for lending the dog to Michael and Addie so I had the chance to fall in love with him.
She is just great. Her name was changed by her foster mom to "allie" and so we kept that name.
She just completed her first set of puppy 1 classes and is just beginning puppy2. She is responding
to some commands at home; sit, down. we are working on come. House breaking is coming along and
she is almost trained. So, far all is good.
