Lucky (formerly Pippin)

ADOPT recently got an update on Lucky (formerly Pippin) from his new family! We hope you enjoy it as much as we did!! 🙂

Pippin, now named Lucky, is doing great! He and our other pup, Penny – yes, like Lucky Penny haha – love playing together and could chase each other around the backyard for hours. Lucky is so funny, floppy and gives tons of kisses. He hasn’t met a person he doesn’t love. Besides cuddling in bed in the morning, eating is definitely his favorite part of the day – he spins in circles when it’s meal time! It’s so cute. He also has the most adorable snaggle tooth and makes the silliest snorting sounds. We would love to get his DNA tested and see what all he’s made of. We have been taking him to puppy classes and he’s learned a ton. He knows sit, spin, touch, down and wait (half the time – can’t blame him food is just too exciting).

I’ve attached some pictures for you! Sorry there’s a bunch, he is just very photogenic! 😉

Lucky, and his sister Penny:

Luna (formerly Dew Drop)

Luna (formerly Dew Drop) loves her new family and her new canine sister Pepper (an ADOPT alum!).  As you can see, she’s settled in pretty nicely!! 🙂


ADOPT recently received an update on Huey from his new family! We hope you enjoy it as much as we did!! 🙂

I would like to thank you for putting Huey through your program. I couldn’t be more happy! It has been a fun couple days already getting to know him! I am a very active person and will be taking him hiking and kayaking frequently.

Huey has been so perfect! He is a happy pup and is already at my side. He sleeps with me and comes out to do barn chores with me. He has already met my cat and dog, along with my parents 3 dogs, and my friends 2 dogs. He is definitely an at-my-side kind of dog.

My parents have 25 acres with woods and a small river where he is allowed to run and play. I’ve already taken him to a larger river and he liked the water there so I can’t wait to take him kayaking – he already has a life vest.

Please tell his handler that I thank him so kindly and he did a wonderful job with this amazing dog!!!


ADOPT received an update on Christie from her new family.  She found a wonderful family that takes her for walks daily, has other furry siblings, and is loved dearly! 🙂

Kona (formerly Freyja)

ADOPT heard from Kona’s (formerly Freyja) new family – we’re so happy to hear that she is fitting in great! 🙂

Theodore (formerly Thor)

ADOPT received an update on Theodore (formerly Thor) from his new mom! We hope you enjoy it as much as we did!! 🙂

Just wanted to send an update on Theodore (formerly Thor). We call him Theo or Teddy Bear (or his full name, Theodore Samson, when he’s not listening!). He is fitting right in with our family. He and Lily are best friends – they play together all the time at home and enjoy hanging out. He loves to go on walks and say hi to other dogs at the park, but it’s hard to take pictures there because my hands are full with 2 leashes! He’s getting better with his separation anxiety, and has become a favorite at doggie daycare when he & Lily go once a week! This week the staff commented to me how playful he was compared to the last time he was there. He’s really coming into his personality, and we’re so glad to have him in our home. Thank you to everyone at ADOPT for helping to get him here!!


ADOPT recently received an update on Elvis from his new family! We love seeing how happy he is in his furever home, and hope you enjoy it, too! 🙂

It’s been a little over a month since I adopted Elvis, so I wanted to send an update/major THANK YOU for caring for this sweet boy and all the other pups in ADOPT’s care.

Elvis is quite literally the perfect dog. He’s affectionate, will do ANYTHING for a belly rub,
walks well on a leash, and is friendly with everyone (human/canine/etc.) that he meets. He loves to go on walks around my neighborhood, join me at work, travel home to Cleveland to visit my family (and his dog-Uncle Tucker – pictured below), and play with his friends at doggie daycare. His favorite toys have squeakers in them, his favorite treats are mini-Milkbones, and he LOVES cheese. He is really just a great dog who has made my life/the move to an entirely new city infinitely better, and I wanted to say thank you for being there for him until I could bring him home.

Attached are some photos (including his reaction to getting adopted and heading to his furever home) of Elvis, in case you were wondering what he’s been getting up to these days.

Thank you again for all you do!


ADOPT received an update on Kiya from her forever family! Kiya was adopted from us TEN years ago – we loved seeing how she’s doing today! 🙂

We are celebrating our baby girl, Kiya’s 10th birthday this month. She has been the best girl and family member. A little grayer, but still silly and sweet. Thank you!!!

Kiya, when she was adopted in 2007!

Hannah (formerly Bridget)

ADOPT received an update on Hannah (formerly Bridget) from her new mom! We hope you enjoy it as much as we did!! 🙂

Hannah has settled in quite nicely!  She’s been a very good girl house-breaking wise.  We have a couple training things to work on, (like no jumping on people) but we’ll make it fun.  She’s a very busy girl who enjoys the fenced yard and is quite a snuggler at night. 

Please know that she is very loved and destined to be spoiled! ♡♡♡

Bella (formerly Della)

ADOPT received an update on Bella (formerly Della) from her new family! We hope you enjoy it as much as we did!! 🙂

Things are going great. She has brought so much joy to me. We walk every morning and evening…. She is eating well and has gained about 2 ½ pounds.

My vet was impressed with how well adjusted she seems in 3 weeks. He would like me to take her for training once we have fully adjusted to each other. I hope to look into therapy dog training so we could visit the hospital or nursing homes.

She loves being outside in the fenced in yard and chases the bunnies and squirrels…she is getting better about not chasing the birds from the feeders. She loves having our friends come over because she is the belle of the ball. …She sleeps with us and has full run of the house at night with no mishaps…she is a really good girl.

I want to thank you for everything you did to help me through the process and keeping my application on file. Please know she is spoiled and loved.

She loves her BarkBox!

Bella, when first rescued and now.
