ADOPTED!   We love it when people step in and take action.  It isn’t easy to bring a stray dog into your home when your house is already full, but that is what Birdie’s Good Samaritan did.


When walking her two dogs one morning, a stray pit bull approached Diana and her pack and followed them home.  Diana took Birdie in, gave her a much needed bath (of which Birdie LOVED) and immediately reached out for help to find Birdie a new home.  We courtesy posted Birdie and sure enough, one of our volunteers fell in love.

So, we made plans to meet this beautiful girl and when we left, we had one more passenger in the van with us.


Honestly, we could not have been more pleasantly surprised by the greeting we received when we first met Birdie, body wags and all, welcoming us.

You always wonder what the stories are of our rescued pups. And with Birdie, it’s no different.

This 4 – 5 year old girl knows how to give paw, sit and is super affectionate. Birdie loves a good game of tug, is described as a “funny girl” by her foster mommy, has a gentle way about her and is a really neat snuggler.  Birdie loves to burrow under the covers at night and bask in the sun by day.  She has been doing great learning lady-like leash manners, loving her daily walks.  Simply put, Birdie is a delightful companion.

And, as you can see, with the right introductions, Birdie is open to making new doggie friends.  This handsome boy is one of her favorite neighborhood buds.

Birdie has been spayed, microchipped, up to date on all vaccinations and is crate trained.  The only thing missing from her life is a forever home!
