Chloe is doing great! I am so happy I was able to give her a home. When I adopted her I was so touched by all the Lost Dog and Cat Foundation volunteers and have participated as a volunteer since then. I have had no problems with her and I took her to the vet for a wellness check and everything was good! I’m so happy to have a new companion for the years to come!Below are some pictures of Chloe. Thanks for checking in on her!

My husband has coined a new phrase – Lukatic. Because Luke is the most adorable lunatic of a dog ever. Bananas? Eat them fast or be prepared to share. You’re putting the peel in the garbage and not looking, be prepared to chase the dog streaking away. The 4 and 6 year old boys coming to visit, sit back and watch the belly rubs taking place. Looking for a kiss and a snuggle, look no further. Road trip? Just wake him up when you get there.
Like most dog stories, the Luke era starts with the calm, sweet, beloved Basset before him. We had lost our dog Sparkle two years prior and just before we downsized. It was a long time before we even talked seriously of another dog. We saw Luke on a Sunday in January but walked away. We came back the next week and decided to take him home, even tho this was a much more energetic dog than we had seen the week before. A really smart, loving, handsome but untrained dog. But you could see what a great dog was there waiting for someone to help him figure it out. Over the next few weeks, we couldn’t figure out why such a sweet boy who was clearly a good boy had gone un-adopted for so long. We’ve decided he was waiting until we were ready.
After a lot of consistent work, he is becoming exactly the dog we figured was in there. He, mostly, waits for us to walk through the door before he follows. Luke heels on the leash and stops and sits before crossing the street. He comes when called (even without hope for a treat–well that’s not true, Luke always assumes food is involved). He sits and waits for permission to go to his food dish. And he is starting to walk past other dogs without lunging or barking. In fact, the barking at other dogs had changed tone from I’m scared so I’m going to really bark to hey, let’s play? For those of you who have met Luke over the year he was with Lost Dog, you would be delighted with the progress he has made. This is one happy dog.
He still dive bombs whoever is in the bed every time he thinks he can get away with it and we have yet to find ANY food substance he will not eat, but this dog is just sweet and hysterically funny. He is truly a Lukatic.
Thanks for hanging in with him.

I wanted to let you all know that Mikey (previously Bear), who my fiancee Rachael and I adopted on February 8th is doing awesome! He is happy and healthy in his new home and is the talk of the building and the neighborhood with his dashing good looks. I can’t walk more than a few feet without getting stopped by someone driving or walking by. We couldn’t be happier or more fulfilled than we are with Mikey! He is one happy pup and has absolutely LOVED the snow.
Just thought we’d let you know how grateful we are!

I’m writing to you about Merlin the Beagle. We adopted Merlin almost a year ago in March of 2013 at an adoption fair. Most dogs at the fair were high energy and receiving lots of attention from the people. Merlin was relatively new and seemed very scared. He was not with most of the dogs. We took him for a short walk and decided to take a chance on him. Best decision ever. Merlin has been a blessing for us. The friendliest dog to any human and especially compassionate to us. He once woke up a member of our family when another member of the family was experiencing a diabetic emergency. If it wasn’t for him, who knows how long the emergency would have gone unnoticed. Merlin loves to be outside and explore. On the opposite, he also loves to be snuggled up on the couch with his family. We couldn’t be happier with Merlin.

Hi- WE LOVE HER. We named her KAALI (which means Goodess of destruction of evil also means Black in India) She has basically taken over our house. Kaali has lost most of her shyness..though she still jumps and hides when she hears loud noise. She has fallen in love with my husband and follows him around every where. She sleeps on our bed…loves playing with feet , hands and moving toys.Really not fussy about food but now that she is growing she is showing signs of fussyness.We took her to the vet saturday. The vet said the shelter has done a wonderful job. Nothing wrong with her.Thank you so much for what you do.I will attach photographs …it’s tough to get good photos with all black cat as the flash makes her eyes glow.We love coming home to her.

We met Todd at Saturday’s adoption event, fell in love, and could not sleep all night with regrets for not bringing him home with me that day. I knew this was the perfect dog for our family. He wasn’t interested in our guinea pigs. The next day (Sunday), I called Lost Dog Rescue to find out what store Todd would be so I could hopefully permanently adopt this precious dog. After 3 stores, we finally found him, and took him home. He enjoyed getting a bath, a good meal and watching the Super Bowl on his first night home. He slept so comfortably, he snored like an old dog. He’s brought a new kind of happiness into our home.
