Please join us on August 6 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at Tractor Supply in Scarborough, Maine. As part of Pet Awareness Week, Tractor Supply has asked us to participate in this event. See some of our foster dogs (not necessarily the ones pictured) and find out more about our rescue and see what goodies we have for sale to benefit LPR!
Gent recently had a wonderful birthday party. In honor of Gent's birthday, and because some of his friends have medical bills that are straining the rescue's budget, he has proposed a donation reward for each of you. Starting today, if you make a donation to offset our vet bills, we will reward you.
For a $5.00 donation, you will receive a Macy's Shopping pass - see the benefits here:
Nelson (formerly Mickey) was adopted in January 2009: "Nelson is doing great and is such a lucky pup! I have attached a photo. He is considered our child and is so well behaved ..there is something special about him, he is not a normal dog. Janet was spot on - she told us that he was for us and we are so grateful."
Mandy was adopted in September 2008: "Mandy is doing just fine, almost caught herself a red squirrel the other day. This squirrel has been daunting both dogs for weeks now. I would suspect that it will not do that anymore.
Mandy' favorite place is under my covers. I make my bed in the morning and about 10 minutes later, she has undone it, crawled under the covers in a knot and goes to sleep. I have attached a few photos. I lifted the covers to take one picture. As you can see she looks sleepy because I woke her to take the photos.
She loves to play with Drewie and they are great pals. They continue to play and run both inside and out. Mandy does figure eights while older Drewie just stands in the middle and tries to catch her...it is quite comical!"
Lenny was adopted in June 2008: "Lenny has settled in nicely. It's like he has always been here. We have had two grandaughters born in the past year and a half and he gets along great with them. We go for a long walk every morning, which he really enjoys, and he likes to go for rides in the car as well as sunning himself in the yard. The extended family also loves having Lenny around. They are always asking if we brought him with us. He especially likes Thursday evening, when my wife has friends over, and he gets a treat from each of them. Here is Lenny enjoying the sunshine in the yard with his Halloween bandana. We are truly happy having Lenny, and I think he feels the same. I can always rely on Lenny to greet me at the door every day when I come home from work."
Daisy Mae was adopted in March 2008: "Thanks for checking in! Daisy Mae is fantastic! We both admit that in the beginning, it was a little rough & we wondered what we had gotten ourselves into, but thankfully the growing period was relatively short & she adjusted nicely. Todd & Daisy are pretty much inseparable & he takes her everywhere. In fact, he just bought a new pickup truck & part of the reason why he chose the one he did was because the windows in the extended cab doors went down. Now Daisy can be in the back & stick her head out of the window. And if you can't find them off in the truck somewhere, then they are probably out in the woods walking the trail ... her other favorite thing to do.
On the flip side, we laugh (most times), because Daisy is a very busy dog. We can deal with the hole digging & pestering the cat, but the bee chasing (when she's allergic), trying to attack porcupines & messing with skunks we could have gladly done without. I think we are single-handedly keeping the emergency vets in business!
In the end, we couldn't have asked for a better dog. She is very loving & for the most part, very well behaved, but when the collie kicks in ... watch out! TUNNEL VISION!! :)
Dixie (formerly Bonnie) is Sadie's sister. She was adopted in April 2009. Here is her story: "Dixie is now a permanent resident and family member in our household.
She loves to hunt, and we understand that is fairly common for an Arkansas gal.
She is smart, attentive and loves being a part of the family activitives.
On Tuesday Dixie has play dates at the local kennel, where she is very much a part of the team.
She greets all with a wagging tail and kisses if you request."
Sadie (formerly Beauty) was adopted in April 2009. She and her sisters Bonnie and Brooke were driven to Maine directly by our rescue partners in the south!
"Beauty's name is now Sadie. She is a fantastic dog! She is so good with my grandchildren. She is well behaved, using good manners in the house. She loves to go for rides in the car. She's healthy and happy and we are so lucky to have found her. I have attached some pictures from our vacation last summer. She loved camping and even watched a bunny come into our site and eat her dog food.
She really is wonderful and we love her very much."
Hi All! Miss Akela is doing great. She is the perfect dog for us. She hikes and camps with us and is the best all around dog. She even runs on bike trails attached to the bike (safetly!). Her passion is Frisbee. A 20-minute Frisbee session is her favorite sport. Hope all is well.
