What's New At the Zoo.. Many new faces to share with YOU!!!

"He that can't endure the bad, will not live to see the good"
-Yiddish Proverb

Things have been busy here beyond words!!!
I am working on the next blog post, but it is taking me some time to compile my thoughts.
So I will post a few of the many faces here, looking for homes in the meanwhile.
These guys will be leaving on February 17th, for Chicago and their adoption program.
Gorgeous, loving, happy animals!!!  
Happy endings & new homes will be coming very soon:)

"Trixie" female Black lab/mix approximately 2-3 years of age.  
Super happy, loads of energy & just a great girl!
"Sluggo" male Boxer, 9-10 months old.  His name was Baxter, but Sluggo is more appropriate.  He loves to Box, run & be right with you all day long.  Also has a mean right hook:)


"Annie" female Brittany Spaniel/mix approximately 6-9 years of age.  
She is one of the easiest dogs I've ever had.  Just lays around & doesn't bother anyone or anything.  Super sweet & darling.  Has seen some very hard miles.  Her teeth are shattered to the roots & she is recovering from ear and skin infections.  Doing well, she'll be ready for adoption in a few weeks.

This fabulous threesome is "Harley" 6 years old, female Beagle mix, "Carney" 1-2 years of age, female Wirehair Dachshund & "Cooper" 2-3 years of age male Basset/mix.
Housebroken, super fun personalities and look good together:)

"Sugar Pie" is a female Aussie/mix 12 weeks old. 
Just wants to give you kisses and lay her head at your feet.

"Teddy" is a male Golden Retriever approximately 10 weeks old. LOADS of energy, carries & chews everything. Always happy and loves other dogs. Definitely ALL puppy!!

"Billy-Belly" is a male Lab/mix, 12 weeks old.  LAZY puppy:)  I'm pretty sure he has some hound in him from his baying bark tones.
"Shayla" is a female Aussie/mix approximately 2-3 years old.  
She is the BEST DOG IN THE WORLD!!!  Busy, loves to run and play.  
This dog came from a horrible abuse case & has the most love for people I've seen in a dog.
If you go to my YouTube channel you can see her video.  

"Sarge" is a male Malamute/Husky mix. FABULOUS guy, 1-3 years of age.  
"Myrtle & Turtle" are female & male Jack/Beagle mixes. 8 weeks old  Darling, shy & busy.

Large "Marge" is a female Great Dane/mix.  1-3 years of age.  She is soooo funny!!!  Thinks she's a poodle and will try to crawl in your lap.

"Captain Kissey Pants" is a PitBull, probably a mix. Male, approximately 3-4 months old. SUPER, KISSEY, SWEET!!!!  He is a stalker of the BEST kind.  
A parvo survivor he came to us with his ears & tail cut off:(  He is just the sweetest sweetie pie.

Please stay tuned this week... 
I will be doing a very important post coming up in the next day or so.

Please note: We have reset the badge to reflect donations made this year, so if you have our badge on your blog or website, that is why it is blank.  
Please add the new badge, by copying the new text via the share tab on my current badge to the right of the blog.

More news, updates & faces in the next few days..
Blessings to you!!!!
I watched your recent YouTube Video. Thanks for doing all you do. You are an inspiration and please keep up the good work.

Too many dogs that don't have homes.
Hi, I just ran across your blog and wanted to say hi. I volunteer with a boxer rescue, but WOW I can't believe you do this all on your own. That's amazing!
How could anyone not want to adopt them ALL after seeing those faces?!
Billy-Belly is the absolute best! I just want to hold that boy!
MYRTYLE AND TURTLE rock my world!!!!
They are talking to me in that photo- I'm sure of it!
It looks like you have a wonderful rescue effort. I wish all the animals can find good homes!
I've been following you on Twitter, but this is the first time I've visited your blog. What a great bunch of critters. Thanks for all you do for them. Hugs, Woofs & Meows to you all :)

I wish I could adopt them all! Have you ever heard the saying, "Don't breed, sell, or buy while shelter animals die?" So nice to meet you sweetie. Keep up the great work. I too am a huge advocate towards animal rescue.

I saw you know Zak George on twitter and thought I'd follow you as well. He introduced me to it. He has worked in my show since 2006 as one of my trainers. Great guy! I'm so happy for him and can't wait to see his show. ;-)

Anyway, I also promote Pet Adoption and Spay/Neutering all across the U.S. with my performing stunt dogs. You may have seen me and a couple of my dogs on Oprah last year? I was apart of the puppy mill follow up episode. At the top of the hour I had my rescue dog from the Kansas City pound jump rope with Oprah. And then my boy Action Jackson did his famous "pawstand". He does a hand stand in the palm of my hand. ;-) He was adopted from Happy Hearts Rescue on the exact day he was scheduled to be euthanized.

I'd love to keep in touch with you. I just set up a blog at http://stuntdog.wordpress.com and I'd love to have you subscribe and keep in touch. I will be keeping it updated regularly. I'm actually looking for a high energy Frisbee freak of a dog right now. If you come across any obsessive dogs that just can't stop playing and jumping please let me know. I'd have a great job for them to do... play all day and all year long! lol!

Have a dog gone great day!

I'm in LOVE with Teddy!

Thank you for all you do for the pupsters!
What kind of dog is the one you are holding in your right arm? the white mix (top pic). Is he available for adoption?
Oh Gosh what wonderful dogs - just adorable - I so hope they all find homes if there is any justice in this world...

I can't beleive Cptn Kissy Pants got his ear and tail cut off - horrendous....
Sweet sweet dogs

My boyfriend and I adopted Myrtle (now Sophie) from the Anti Cruelty Society in Chicago a week ago. She is the sweetest, most adorable, happy puppy. We could not have asked for a better dog. We are not sure what her story is, but we know that she came from a place to bark...so thank you for saving her life! If you have any information about her we would love to know! Thank you again!

i adopted aisley, now known as eisley, from acs this past tuesday. she is the incredibly affectionate & delicious mother of your dear sophie! my boyfriend & i could not have asked for a more wonderful dog to lavish w/ our love. we live on the north side of chicago; if you're ever interested in swapping stories/pics &/or arranging a little reunion, please do not hesitate to contact me. i hope this finds all three of you in good health & spirits!


sorry its taken so long to respond to your posting. we would actually love to meet your eisley or at least see some pictures of her (i dont know if it would be the best idea to get them together just yet). sophie is getting so big. she is starting to become a bit more frisky and adventurous but is still the sweetest little baby and loves to cuddle. hope all is well on your end!
