2005 Success Stories

Rocky

Rocky

Rocky

Says Rocky’s mom “Rocky (formerly known as Sam) is wonderful!! The love of my life, for sure. We graduated from our 1st obedience class last week, and he was star student”.


Rabbit

Rabbit

After Rabbit (formerly known as Monica) was adopted, her family decided to become an ACR foster home. Since then, Rabbit has welcomed many a foster dog into her home and shown them the ropes (and the bones and the squeaky toys).


Maximus

Maximus

Maximus


I adopted Maximus, in October. I am proud to report that he has gone through basic training at Pawtropolis, and loves to practice stay for treats. He loves to go kayaking and camping, and spends a lot of time in his own favorite chair by the window. This dog is spoiled rotten. He loves the dog park and chew toys, especially ones that he can tear the stuffing out of. He is a great puppy and he will be an amazing dog. We are moving to Charlotte, NC in June and Maximus will be a city dog and not a country dog anymore. Thank You so much.

PS His ears are huge. I love it.


Shelby

Shelby

Thanks to ACR and to foster parents Kim and Paul for helping Shelby find me! She is a fabulous dog who was already so happy and well-mannered when I met her and is learning more by the minute. I knew it was meant to be when I was unloading laundry from the dryer and she followed behind me and handed me a dropped sock. Our jogs around the neighborhood are the best part of my day. Shelby and I truly appreciate all the effort you put into helping great dogs like her find good homes.


Dax
Dax

Dax

Thank you, ACR for such a perfect addition to our family! This is Dax with our son Julian and his cousins. Dax (adopted April 2005) continually cracks us up with his goofy personality and we have never known such a smart, loving dog! He and our cat Maya have become great friends, and have taken up sleeping together in our son’s room. Dax just fits right in! We really appreciate what your organization is doing. We hope that you can continue to brighten other peoples’ and dogs’ lives with your service.


Moe
Moe

Moe

We recently adopted Moe (adopted – and shaved – April 2005) after becoming his foster parents – and then we just couldn’t give him up! He became part of the household the second he walked in the door and is happy no matter what he’s doing. His favorite hobbies are playing in the backyard for hours, helping me “fold the laundry,” (a.k.a., jumping on the clothes and my lap every time I try to do it!), trying to be friends with Bubba the cat, dancing when he’s excited, and getting lots of love from his new family. Moe is a bright part of every day for us and we are incredibly grateful that he got a second chance from the ACR!


Mollie
Mollie

Mollie

Mollie (adopted March 2005) has a regular routine every morning. After breakfast, she goes on the back deck lies in the sun! Things are going fine. She’s quite a character! Life is an adventure with her around! It’s really going to be interesting to see how she adapts to our summer life. Our house has lots of comings goings!


Buster
Buster

Buster

I just wanted to thank ACR and Buster’s foster parents for everything that y’all do. Buster is the best dog. He just brightens my day with his dance that he does when he sees his leash and when he learns a new command. He is the smartest and most loving dog and I feel really grateful that he is my dog. Thank you!


Trevor
Trevor

Trevor

Trevor (formerly known as Andy) has become such a joyful addition to our family. This past month has been a great learning experience and a time of adjustments for the three of us. We have had the pleasure of having Trevor accompany us on daily walks, park outings, and a family vacation. We are proud to be his parents and truly feel like he is proud to be our son. Thanks ACR!


Gabe
Gabe

Gabe

We just wanted to tell everyone that Gabe (adopted February 2005 and pictured here on right) is doing wonderfully. You’d never believe that he is the same dog that was rescued in late January (abused and weighing just 25 lbs). He’s now 60 lbs. and has a great temperament and personality. He loves playing with his “brother” Max. He craves loving from everyone. He is such a pleasure and a really great addition to our family. Max, by the way, was also adopted thru Athens Canine Rescue, about 1-1/2 yrs. ago. We’ve been blessed with 2 great buddies.


Dooley
Dooley

Dooley

Dooley (formerly known as Rocky) is doing great. He has settled in and made himself at home. He has brought so much joy to us, I can’t imagine not having him. He truly is the dog made for us. I have told so many people about Dooley and how much we love him that they are asking for the website that we found him. I always explain that they can look in the paper and get any dog they want, but there is nothing like adopting one that really needs a home and will appreciate it. You and your organization have changed my life with Dooley and my heart about how important people like you and your organization are. I can never thank you enough!


Handsome and Gretel
Handsome and Gretel

Handsome and Gretel

The pups (adopted January 2005) have adjusted very well. Handsome, Gretel and the girls stayed outside playing all day yesterday. They had a blast. Handsome has been his mischievous self :-) He has been happy as can be. He loves to run, and run some more around the yard. Stopping only for some water, or to pounce on Gretel, and roll in the grass. They are something else. They are definitely a pair not to be separated. Thanks for being so helpful, and wonderful!!! We appreciate it.
