Happy Tails For Mabel

When did you adopt your pet from AARF?: July 3, 2021
Pet’s AARF Name: Mabel
Pet’s New Name (if you changed it): Mabel- but we usually call her Mae
How is your adopted pet doing? Mae is doing SO good! She was absolutely confused and scared for the first few days- she never had a real family or a real home before so she wasn’t sure what to do with it. It took some patience and gentle encouragement but over time, she went from tail always tucked to walking with her tail held high and a bounce in her step! She loves all sorts of treats and peanut butter! She isn’t really interested in toys but we recently found out she likes sticks!! She likes to play with other neighborhood dogs and is kind of a puncher- meaning she bops them in the head with her big bear paws! Lol
She is starting to get snuggly with us and loves to be right where we are and getting petted. She slept in the bed with us on her own accord for the first time and we were so excited! We can tell this is only the beginning of a lifetime of cuddles. She is such a calm and chill dog- she either spends her days in dad’s office as a “studio dog” on her favorite bench, or she comes to the flower shop with mom and is a “shop dog” where all customers melt over her (and she doesn’t even react- so well behaved!) we keep laughing because we have this perfect dog that we didn’t really have to train and cannot believe she just fell into our laps. We love her deeper each day- you can’t help it with her gorgeous eyes that stare into your soul! This is the dog we prayed for. I know our other dog Rory sent her straight from heaven. I know they’re secret friends. We love our Mae girl.

Happy Tails For Josie

When did you adopt your pet from AARF?: 2 months ago (I think)
Pet’s AARF Name: Josie
Pet’s New Name (if you changed it): Zsa Zsa (like in Zsa Zsa Gabor)
How is your adopted pet doing? Oh my goodness, she is the queen! Her purrs have not stopped and she is very vocal (which I love). When I feed the girls (Mimi and Zsa Zsa) in the morning they follow me to the pantry, and back to their food station- chatting the entire time. They play together and have become good friends. She loves to sleep beside us and snuggles in for the night. She is at home with all of us and we all love her.

Happy Tails For Samson

Pet’s AARF Name: Samson
Pet’s New Name (if you changed it): Samson
How is your adopted pet doing? Samson is doing so well! He is the happiest puppy. My husband and I snuggle him all day long while we work from home during the pandemic. He makes us laugh and he loves meeting new people and new dogs! He’s become the king of the dog park, and all the other dogs and owners just fawn over how cute he is! His favorite thing is so chase his ball and eat Mommy’s shoes. We love him so much, and we can’t even remember life without him!

Happy Tails For Clarissa

When did you adopt your pet from AARF?: Nov 7, 2020
Pet’s AARF Name: Clarissa
Pet’s New Name (if you changed it): Margot
How is your adopted pet doing? Margot is the best – and also sometimes still a naughty puppy – but we love her unconditionally. Since adopting Margot back in Nov 2020, she’s bonded with every person and dog she’s met. She has brought so much joy to our lives and has led us on the search of a lifetime to find a dog toy she can’t destroy! Her favorite activities are: running, playing, swimming, eating and making zoom call appearances. Her least favorite activity seems to be sleeping. We are thankful every day for the joy, humor and enthusiasm she brings into our home. Thanks AARF!
