|Gabby - before||Gabby - now, a happy healthy girl|
Gabby first came into rescue as a sickly little puppy. She was located in CO but our adoptive home (Scott and Naila) was located in another state. The new owner was willing to fly into CO to pick up Gabby and since she was so small she got to ride in the cabin. Fast forward a few years and Gabby is now a strikingly beautiful, athletic girl in a happy, loving home.
Glock, now known as Joker
It was not easy for me to accept that it was time to start thinking about retirement for my current service dog, as having one has been one of the few things that’s helped me gain my independence back since my diagnosis. I was not expecting to find a dog as quickly as I did when I reached out to Kelli (Glock’s coordinator) in the fall of 2021. I couldn’t have asked for a dog that fits into our lives as seamlessly as Glock, now known as Joker has. It’s hard to believe that the timid, nervous dog I met when I picked him up from Animal Control would grow into such a happy, confident, &
well rounded guy. He has brought so much joy, love, laughter, & hope into our household since I brought him home in January. After months of bonding, training, & officially gaining clearance for mobility work with his excellent hips, he become a permanent member of our family in July. I’m so proud of how far we’ve come in our short time together & was over the moon with excitement when he gave his first real life medical alert recently. A big thank you to everyone who’s been apart of our journey, I know I’m in good paws.
