Rescues!

Rescues!

Hey there. I was curious as to how many people within the community have a cute story or picture of a animal they rescued. My fiance and I took in a beautiful, amazing pit bull/staffordshire bull terrior mix. He is a awesome tan and brown brindle with a little white mask over one eye. Super cute. Thankfully he still has his ears and tail, as they were not chopped. This dog has become the love of my life besides my fiance of course !
I perfer rescues over just buying a puppy because they really appreciate the love that you give them, and your constantly reminded daily that they appreciate it. This dog stole my heart the second I saw him. The people who had him prior were dog fighting him and said he was "too nice" so they were going to hang him. I'm an animal lover and couldnt have that so I took him home.

For anyone who hasn't had a rescue, I highly suggest that you try it out. They are the most loving animals and apreciate the smallest things because of the fact they never had a loving home!

I don't have pictures, but my dad and I have rescued a number of parrots and such. We have one with a broken wing, one missing an eye, another that's somewhat mentally disabled (she seems rather slow in learning and all), etc. They're a handful, but cute at times, even if most of them all love my dad over me.

In Jan we rescued a Staffordshire/pit bull and he's the most adorable lovable puppy out there. We have other dogs but he's the only one that's cuddly. When I had my accident he became my shadow and spent hours curled up next to me. He shares the space with a begal and I've noticed he'll get agressive at times so now I have to watch them. I'm afraid, not that he'll deliberate her her, but that he'll accidently do it. He's so much bigger then her and she about as smart as a box of rocks. We also have another male chocolate lab who is an outside dog and they just hate each other. We have to keep them apart. I thought since we got him as a puppy the other dog would accept him but apparently not.

My fiance gets angry cause our dog tends to favor me. But its understandable considering that I am home with him 24/7 and my fiance is really busy working. He loves my fiance but I have a better bond with the dog and he listens to me much better lol. I think birds are the one animal I wouldnt be able to tolerate. I grew up around a Mccaw named Zach, he use to talk a shitton, dance and make lots of beeping noises. Birds are cool but I cant take the screaming in the middle of the night. My fiance wants a bird so bad but I'm kinda trying to talk him out of it, since i know I'm going to be stuck with the bird all the time lol.If he suckers me into it I might need some tips on how to not rip my hair out dealing with that much talking! Unless I get lucky and get a bird that wont talk....yeah right lol

No pictures that I can easily get to, but I did rescue my dog. He was born at a shelter. 5 other brothers and one sister. He was the runt of the litter and no one wanted to adopt him, so I took him. I love that dog so much. He currently lives in Nebraska with my parents, though I also rescued a pair of boars (male guinea pigs) last August. A family couldn't keep them any longer because their boys were severely allergic to them. I took them on and had them for about 5 months before I realized that I was very allergic to them as well

I ended up having them sent to a rescue halfway between where I lived then and where I live now. They were thankfully adopted in less than a week and as far as I know, are happily living in a new home.

Awww!! Yeah I've been doing my research on staffordshire pits since I got Drake. From what I've learned (and my experiences) is that they are very family oriented and really dislike new animals coming into their "home". Our dog is fine with our cats. We have 3 cats, one being a 2lb siamese. They snuggle and are best friends but when it comes to other dogs he gets a bit aggressive, unless it is a female pitbull, he loves the girls! ( I feel that was a result of the dog fighting prior to us owning him) We got our dog a muzzle for playing with our friends pit and that changed his tune quite a bit. Knowing that we wont accept that kind of behavior has made him act quite a bit better. I never believed in using muzzles before but it has seemed to help quite a bit when hes around other dogs. I'm hoping that soon he will stop his nipping and be able to play without a muzzle on at all! I just dislike how mean it makes him look

The runts are always the ones that get me. Noone wants them cause their teeny but I want them cause noone else does! lol Our siamese cat was the runt. Shes 3 years old and weighs 2 and a half pounds at most. You can hold her in 1 hand lol

Meet Nacho and Mahalo (missing from the pic is our other cat Kitty Boy). Mahalo is the brown tiger striped cat and he's named Mahalo because his front left paw resembles the Hawaiian "mahalo" hand signal with pinky and thumb sticking out with other three fingers folded down. Mahalo was born with his leg/foot deformity and we saw him at a shelter where we had already gotten his brother Kitty Boy. No one wanted to adopt Mahalo just because of his deformed foot, poor little guy, so we took him home with us. He's the oddest cat behavior-wise I've ever met, but life wouldn't be the same without his quirkiness!

A few winters ago, my mom and sister were driving home from the mall and seen something in the street. It was dead winter, snow everywhere, negative 5 degrees outside at least. They stopped the car and there was a small white and black jack russel. They got him in the car some how, and you could tell he was badly beaten for years. We took him to the vet and they said his legs had been broken many times so he couldnt walk right (he does a kind of skip all the time) he had a ring around his neck where fur wont grow even all these years later. Half his teeth were rotting out. His fur took many baths to get healthy again. He was all skin and bones. He couldnt have found a better family, we spoil animals like crazy. He put on a ton of weight, and we give him tons of love. He still gets nervous sometimes if someone makes too sudden of a movement.He cries during winter because his legs ache so bad because of what they did to him, and it always remind us where he came from. He is the sweetest dog in the world though, his name is Blake. It makes me sick to think someone once hurt him, repeatedly. (ahhh im all teary now thinking about it) I dont understand humans, and how they could hurt anything like that.

Which ones? Our oldest cat was sitting at the side of the road and my hubby thought he had hit it, when we went across the road to check, it was fine and hiding in a very prickly spruce tree. I had one jump to grab it and it worked! It was our first cat. Our second cat was under the house meowing and sounded like it was damn near dead. I opened the trap door to check on it and it jumped into my arms and he has been there about 8 years. Our third cat was an inbred mess that was too cute. He sat on our porch and cried for a few hours before I caved in and let him come in. 3 years ago. Our neighbors small dog walked into our house and fell asleep in the summer time. I took it back to them countless times per day every day for over three months. One day they were gone, permanently, just moved out without the dog. We kept her. There are about six other animals I have rescued, but they are no longer alive and it is too hurtful to recall.

People can just be sick. I don't understand how anyone could mistreat an animal like that. It's good to hear that there are people out there who would pull over and help a animal that needs it. I'm sure your dog is loving life now especially after everything the prior owners did. That is the rewarding part of having a rescue though, knowing that they have a good place to live, are loved and cared for. As much as I live puppies I don't want another just cause I have soft spots for animals who need a home. I have an even softer spot for the animals who nobody wants lol. Puppies and kittens always get homes....it's the older animals who have problems

You sound like me lol. Our dog is one of our many rescues. I've taken in numerous cats, 2 of which we still have. One of the cats I've had 14 years now. I've seen people move and just leave their animals, and it's sick. One of my cats was living in a aparent abandoned for a year getting fed dog food once a month by a neighbor. When I found her you could count her ribs, we fattened her up and she's still skittish but love able.
