Happy Tails For Lady Amelia Windsor

When did you adopt your pet from AARF?: 1-29-2017
Pet’s AARF Name: Lady Amelia Windsor
Pet’s New Name (if you changed it): Desi Lu
How is your adopted pet doing? Desi Lu is doing great! We could not be more blessed. Desi has brought us so much joy and happiness since she became a part of our family. In October of last year we had to say good by to the last of our rescue Aussies ..our family was lost. I happened up on arrf rescue late one night saw a pic and video of that sweet face and was drawn to her instantly.
Since then she has stolen our hearts and even won over our 3 cats Ozzy, mouse, and Mya. Desi Lu is so loved by all who are lucky enough to meet her.
Our experience with AARF was amazing. Barbara went over and beyond to help make sure that we were a good fit. We made the trip from Jacksonville Florida and Barbara and her sweet husband met us in Chattanooga.
I have been involved in rescue off and on over the last 30 years, and I must say that AARF is one of the best run animal rescue organizations that I have ever seen. You can certainly tell that The Fosters and volunteers do all they do out of pure love . I can’t Thank Barbra enough for helping our family feel complete again.

Happy Tails For Skittles

When did you adopt your pet from AARF?: 7/27/2017. Pick up date: 7/30/2017
Pet’s AARF Name: Skittles
Pet’s New Name (if you changed it): Jasmine
How is your adopted pet doing? Jasmine is doing very good! Her and Louie (my Chihuahua) are getting along very nicely! She is just as playful and hyper as Louie so I’m very happy with that! She is the new member of our family and we love her so much!! I want to thank everyone as well as her foster for everything!!

“Skittles” now named Jasmine is doing amazing. Louie and Jasmine are best friends and get along very well. Jasmine is now fully potty trained and goes out and uses pee pads. She is learning new tricks and now has a wardrobe to match Louie’s thanks to my mom. She just recently noticed the Lovebirds we have and watch them like crazy when I have them out exercising them. She got to meet new friends on our neighborhood walks and is learning the walking trail we take. She loves to run rather than walk when we go out so now I have an exercise buddy. She is the best thing that has happened to us and to Louie now that he has someone to play with he sleeps better. They just recently started to share a bed and are learning to play with toys together.

Pet’s AARF Name: Juno
Pet’s New Name (if you changed it): Lily
How is your adopted pet doing? When Lily first came to us, she was very timid because of the situation she had come from. It took her quite a while to feel completely comfortable in our home but with patience, she has since blossomed and truly you can tell that she feels she has found her forever home. She definitely is my dog as she cuddles on the couch and sleeps with me every night. She loves playing with her 4 legged siblings.

How is your adopted pet doing? Rudy has been the perfect addition to our family. He loves to hike, walk, run and play. He’s a master fetcher and a snuggle bug. He doesn’t bark that often (only when danger is suspected) so he learned quickly to ring a bell to go outside. He’s our baby for sure!

Happy Tails For Hemsley

When did you adopt your pet from AARF?: April 2016

Pet’s AARF Name: Hemsley

Pet’s New Name (if you changed it): Hemsley

How is your adopted pet doing? Hemsley is such a blessing. When I saw his picture I knew he was mean for me, I had graduated from a 6 month rehab for drug addiction and was just settling into my new home and new job at a horse barn. I had been looking for a puppy for sometime at different rescues and hadn’t found any perfect fits. Hemsley was in the process of being adopted when I contacted you, but he was the only one I felt a spark for in the litter. A few days later I saw an email that his adoption fell through and I asked if he was available still. I didn’t respond fast enough so yet again he was in the process of being adopted. It was meant to be because his second adoption fell through and I spent every last penny I had to get him to New Hampshire with me! Hemsley is a sweet, kind, gentle soul and he loves coming to work with me every day. He can tell when I am feeling down and he comes rite to me when I need him the most. He learned all his tricks in one night because he is that smart and he is the best running buddie I could ask for. Car rides to Vermont to visit my family are easy because he loves the car and loves all other dogs when we visit! Thank you so much for giving me my best friend. A true best friend who licks tears right from my face.
