DeeAnn, Harley's foster mom, has included her personal account with Harley's amazing story and where he is now.Harley was found homeless and sick. He only had a 50% chance of survival. Now he is living a life of true happiness and contentment. Read More...

Gracie #9 in PA

Gracie has touched my heart and I am so happy to have her. She came to me in October.  I lost my last Doxie just this past May, Oliver was 12 and my other Doxie Oscar 4 years ago, he was 16.5. I adopted Oscar at 13 years old. He was my love bug and never let me out of his site. Everyone cannot believe how much Gracie looks like Oscar. Same coloring and that adorable little white face!  Gracie is so friendly with everyone she meets.  She goes up to greet every person she sees, adults and children alike. All she wants is to be petted and given belly rubs. She is doing really well with learning to go outside to " do her business". Gracie loves to snuggle and stays bundled up in her cozy blankets by my side. She loves to sleep in my big bed and runs to the bedroom when I tell her it is time for " night night".  Gracie had a birthday November 24th and is now 12 years young.  You would not think she is 12 especially when she sees the squirrels in my back yard, she can really run when she chases them. It is so cute to see.  
We are working on walks. Gracie wants to go where Gracie wants to go! LOL.
We need to work on car rides because she wants to crawl on my lap and wants me to hold her.
Some people I know do not understand why I would adopt an older dog. I do not understand why someone would not adopt an older dog . All dogs deserve a safe home and to be loved. 
 Gracie filled a huge empty place in my heart and home.  She is so sweet and loving and makes me smile all the time.   I cannot believe that any one would give her up. Thank you to everyone at AADR for finding her and letting me have her in my life."

Groucho Marx...ME

Groucho Max was adopted by Sonia June 2014 and here is what she has to say: He's a pure joy. He looks forward to our daily walk followed by a rest on the porch. I can't understand why he was in rescue and I love my boy. Have a good day


From former alum Gibbs' mom "he's loving life!"


Ginger is doing great

Gabby and Chyna.....VT

Gabby and Chyna are now called Sophie and Tucker and they are giving me so much more than I could ever give them in love and happiness! I keep in touch with Kandi the foster mom and she loves to see pics of these babies. If you were part of their journey to me I will always be grateful. I'm so glad AADR exists to help these precious little dogs and I know they couldn't do it without people like you and Kandi. Enjoy the pics!
My house is now a loving fur-ever home EmojiEmoji
