Happy Tails For Nala

When did you adopt your pet from AARF?: April 2014
Pet’s AARF Name: Nala
Pet’s New Name (if you changed it): Phoenix
How is your adopted pet doing? I adopted Phoenix in April of 2014 after losing my shepherd, Harley. Harley was also a tripod, and also missing her right front leg. So when I saw Phoenix’s picture I felt it was meant to be. It is also the reason I changed her name to Phoenix, to show new life rising from the ashes. Phoenix and I actively compete in the sport of nosework. She has received her NW1, NW2, L1C, L1E, and L2E titles. At her NW1 she also received the Harry Award for the most outstanding rescue dog who demonstrates the spirit of nosework. At her NW2 she took 3rd place overall in the trial. We continue to compete and can’t wait for what the future holds for us!

How is your adopted pet doing? Hilde is doing amazing!! She is a very playful pup and definitely keeps us on our toes, but when she’s in snuggle mode, she is the sweetest and cuddliest girl in the world. She’s so smart and is pretty much completely leash, crate, and potty trained in less than two months! She makes us a family, and we love her so much.

Happy Tails For Pixel

When did you adopt your pet from AARF?: October 2018
Pet’s AARF Name: Pixel
Pet’s New Name (if you changed it): Mizu
How is your adopted pet doing? We originally found and rescued Mizu from behind an air conditioning unit. She had runny eyes and a head cold, but she loved to be held and petted. We were getting married at the end of that week, though, and we wouldn’t be around to take care of her. Thankfully, we got in touch with a foster mom whom AARF sponsored, and she took care of our girl until she was ready for adoption. When we saw her become available, we deliberated back and forth and ultimately decided we needed our wedding kitty in our lives again. Now Mizu and her big dog sister, Gracie, are best buddies. Her grandma bought her a welcome gift of a cat tree and all the toys a kitty could want. She still loves snuggles, and always curls up with us on the couch after dinner. Naturally, anything that moves MUST be a toy, but Mizu always settles in for scritches and cuddles.
