Pet’s New Name (if you changed it): Louie
How is your adopted pet doing? Louie is doing great! We love him so much and he just keeps us laughing. He’s a little goofy with his long legs and silly floppy ears. We named him Louie b/c my husband and I met at Bar Louie. Our previous dog was Annie and lived to be almost 16. My brother called her Annie Lou, so the name seemed perfect.
Louie has 2 dog cousins and they play all the time. He’s an indoor dog and yes he sleeps in the bed. We take him a lot of places and sit on patios downtown. He is treated like a prince and become very socialized with other dogs and people.
He is very smart and has learned many of the basics. He loves to fetch a tennis ball and go on walks. Although when he gets tired, he just lays down on his leash, so he gets picked up from that point! 🙂 We also got him a toy that you put food in and he kicks it around the house to get treats out. It’s a great way to keep them from eating too fast.
Louie’s mom was Ava and he had several brothers/sisters all adopted through AARF. We live in Nashville, but would love to keep in touch with them and setup play dates or share photos.
Thank you to all the staff & volunteers at AARF…you guys are doing amazing work and we are VERY grateful to have found your organization online.

Pet’s AARF Name: Trixie
Pet’s New Name (if you changed it): Trixie
How is your adopted pet doing? Trixie is even more of a perfect fit than we could have ever imagined. She opens up more and more every day. Trixie is the most adorable, hilarious, and loveable dog we could have ever hoped for. We really wanted to find a dog that would mesh well with our “baby” aka our chiweenie rescue that is 7 pounds of cuddle. We found just that with Trixie. They love each other, and enjoy play time almost as much as cuddle time. When we rescued Trixie she was recovering from an injury she acquired from being hit by a car in January. She is now able to do stairs, and has put on 2 lbs which puts her very close to her pre-accident weight. Thank you so much for saving Trixie. We don’t know what we would do without her now that we have found her!

Pet’s AARF Name: Rogue
Pet’s New Name (if you changed it): Mu
How is your adopted pet doing? Mu is the 12th letter of the Greek alphabet and translates to muscle. In Hawaiian it means us. In Thai translates to pig. Mu is a great dog. She’s a quick learner and a huge snuggler. She does have a playful side and at 4+ months old she is a muscular 45 pounds. It’s just my husband and myself and Mu completes us. She eats like a pig, hogs the couch, looks like a cow and got her name because we would say ” move, move, move” so much it began to sound like moo moo moo. She likes to sit on my lap ( did I mention she is 45 pounds already?) and can squeak a toy like nobody’s business ( her current record is 28 minutes nonstop) I don’t know what I ever did before she came into our life. I thank you guys everyday.

Pet’s New Name (if you changed it): Gus
How is your adopted pet doing? We brought Gus home at the end of April and we honestly cannot remember life without him! Our son is an only child and the two of them have become best buddies. Gus is with us for all our family adventures and he fits right in. He is playful, sweet, and the most fun little pup. He is so loyal and loves to watch over our son, his boy. Adopting from AARF was such a wonderful experience, getting to talk to his foster on the phone before we brought him home allowed us to understand him and how to best to support his transition into our family. Everyone was so helpful and wonderful with us through the process. We feel so lucky to have found Gus, he is such an incredibly loved member of our family!

How is your adopted pet doing? Karma is doing great! She quickly stole our hearts and has been a member of the family from the moment we saw her picture. Since adopting her 5 months ago, she has grown so much and has learned so many new things. She is what we affectionately refer to as our giant lap dog. She loves to play ball and tug of war with her rope. We couldn’t imagine life without her. Thank you to everyone at AARF, especially Brittany and her foster mom Karen for bringing this sweet girl into our lives!!
