My fiancé, William and I had to put down our 14 year old shih tzu last June. We quickly realized how much a dog makes a happy home. On July 24, 2014, we adopted Gizmo (previously known as Elvis). He was 8 months old, very shy and most likely abused in his previous life in Louisiana. It was clear from the start that he was supposed to go home with us that afternoon.
We joke that Gizmo was a “tiny tornado with sad eyes”. The minute he jumped in the car to go home, he immediately was a different dog. Since that day, he’s brought nothing but energy, life, and happiness into our family. For a dog that was so shy and skittish in the beginning, it’s amazing to think how much he loves getting attention from people and playing with other dogs. We couldn’t imagine our life without him!!
Thank you for rescuing our little boy!

Thank you so much for helping me find the right dog. When I met Farley I knew he was the one for me. From being so shy to finally opening up in his fur-ever home. He has his puppy moment’s & is hyper but all in all I love him so much. He was truly the perfect pup for me and my family. Here are some pictures of him finally opening up and truly showing how much of a perfect dog he is!
When I came with my best friend to your shelter, I wanted a dog to run and play with. However, I found much more than that. I found my best friend and confidante.
Her fake family tied her to a tree and almost starved her to death. She has boundless energy and has never met someone she didn’t instantly become best friends with. I call her my canine clone.
We named her Karma. She has limited vision and I have profound hearing loss. We are two parts of a whole. I see for her and she hears for me.
Karma loves to go swimming and she has learned to do different dives into the pool. When it’s raining, we go to the park to go splashing in the mud.
She sleeps in my room and I sing her to sleep on her blanket. No matter how stressful my day has been, hugging my Karma makes it all melt away.
The picture with me and her is the day we found each other. It was love at first sniff.
