Occasionally we hear from some of our past residents and/or their new person with all those good stories we love! If you would like your adoption experience to be included on this "NEW" SUCCESS STORIES page, either send us your story via email at email@example.com or our facebook page TriLakesHumaneSociety. If you would like to include a picture, we love to see those and will post here, too! Please let us know if it's okay to post if there is a family member included.
We will add each new story at the top of this page - when we get to 20 per page, the bottom ones will drop off :) But we're sure that will give lots of people plenty of time to read all the happy stories!
We hope to hear from you all soon!!!
RODNEY riding shotgun, being "Cool in California"! He flew out to his new home right after Labor Day and we've had several updates - how he took to that flight like it was just a normal car ride :) how he loves his new kids and new persons :) how his new brother had to make a little adjustment, but Rodney was very smart and stayed out of his way! Now he and new brother love their time at the dog park and that's a good bonding place then going home together is a wonderful thing :)
BLACKIE who is now called MORSE certainly found his forever home, with the help of one of our staff! His new family came shopping for their new family addition and a best friend for their beautiful dog Paisley. Our staff member took one look at her and thought Blackie/Morse would be the perfect fit. Well, it was love at first site (almost) :) between Morse, Paisley and his new family! His new person said that Morse made the transition perfectly, just like he had lived with them his whole life and that he and Paisley have the same "chase and tumble" type of play. They are also in charge of keeping the deck "squirrel free"! He goes on 2 long walks every day and he loves his new home and they all love him!
SODA now known is ODIE is doing very well and counting out the weeks :) Week 1: He ran and hid at any new sound, ate his food like it was his last meal and was very shy - got his new name, Odie, met his new vet, got microchipped and got to go to his first dog park where he had a lot of fun and ran and played with is new housemate, the BIG Chocolate Lab! Week 2: He learned some new lessons from his new family and he taught them a few things too - like when he goes to the front door it means: 'I HAVE TO GO OUTSIDE, RIGHT NOW!' Week 3: He is much more relaxed and can jump into the back of the car for rides to the dog park. He visits and watches everybody that comes and goes and stays right where he's supposed to, even when unattended. He follows his new "big brother" everywhere and has made his own bed on the covered sofa in the master bedroom :) Week 4: Odie is doing very well. He eats much more slowly and when he sees any of his new family members, his tail practically wags off :) He is also really enjoying being a "house dog" and heads right for the front door after every walk. p.s. Odie would like to remind everybody that he still has 2 brothers and a mom at the shelter and he knows you will be as happy when you adopt one of them as his new family is with him!
ISABELLE is doing great in her new home. She was kept separate from her new sibling for a couple of days, but now all is well. And for a short-legged little girl, she is quite the climber - has cleared out her own little sanctuary a few shelves up in the book case where she likes to post herself and watch all the goings on down below :)
CEASAR bonded with everybody in the family right from the start. We think he just got to play more than he ever did and he loved all that playing and his new playmate! Ceasar loves his new big back yard and his new house and especially loves his new person, who loves him right back!
RUBY found the perfect home with a little boy :) who she loves dearly! Her family said she fit right in with them immediately, just like she had been with them her whole life. They love her just like she's one of their human kids :) The connection between Ruby and her new boy was instant. Ruby, that big ol' girl has found the perfect family and loves it in her new home as much as they love her!
He was LUKE when he was with us, now he's known as DUKE! His first few days were a little concerning but now his family knows what triggers him and all is well. His person said he has turned into the perfect "furbaby" and knows several tricks - up, down, peek-a-boo, over and wave! He knows several phrases like go potty, bye bye and night night and when it is bed time he runs excitedly to his crate, opens the door and curls right up inside like a baby! He has lots of toys but only the sturdy ones survive :0 He gets to go to the dog park once a week, which seems to be the highlight of his life, playing with all the other dogs, but then he's glad when it's time to go home because he's worn out :) He is quite the couch potato and can only share with 1 person since he takes up 2/3 of the couch - all 80 pounds of him! And he's turned into quite the guard dog! Good dog!
