Why buy from a breeder when there are plenty of homeless pups in shelters???

Who here has helped you place a dog or has gone out of their way to help you??

I have to say thanks to Maryellen and Erin (babyreba). As some of you know, I came across a cane corso pup, Ammy, whom I took in as a foster. I had her for two months and a family that I found fell through for me. Finally I came to my senses and asked maryellen to help me and Erin posted her on petfinder for me. Soon after I found a home for her in a couple from Maryland.

Maryellen quarterbacked the whole thing for me. She's amazing!! And Erin lived in the same area as the couple that was interested so she even did a home check for me. Both of them grilled the couple and felt that they were a good candidate for adoption. Boy were they right for Ammy. The husband was a tall harley davidson guy in his 40's. He, in particular, was perfect for Ammy. He is a big gentle man who was laying on my floor trying to gain Ammy's affection, and he quickly did. The wife is a sweet woman, also in her 40's. They were all about learning about the breed and giving her a great home, including her own room. They live alone so Ammy has their full attention and love. I felt great, that this couple was the forever home that Ammy needed so bad.

So the first entry in This thread is for Maryellen and Erin (babyreba)

thanks guys....

also a well deserved credit to Moto who's been fostering Doc for almost 2 years. God bless you man, I felt like punching myself in the face some days with Ammy and that was for only 2 months. :headbang: good luck with finding him a new home.

I have to sent a shout out to :

Rumpley from Hugabull
Kirstan from Bullseye
Thanks both of you for helping me to place dogs with some of your appicants and transporting when my schedule or car would not allow me to. :peace:

Violet for watching a couple of Gretta's little monster pups when they were old enought to be seperated. :headbang:

Spurby, Littlefoot and others who cared enough about Julie and Cedric to get them from Ontario to WA state :bowdown:

Falis and Barbponys for opening up their hearts and homes to another dog in need of a permanent home. :hug:

And a big thanks to all of the other board members here who are actively involved in resuce, fostering, transport, or helping in whatever small way they can be it crossposting needy dogs or educating the public on pet overpopulation. We have an AWSOME group of people here! :thumbsup:

Damien, I'm so happy that Ammy has a home, I'm glad to help whenever I can . . . Now I hope I get to run into her with her new family some day!

And Violet and Steph and Maryellen and Badrap and Littlefoot and Spurby and Hugabully and pocket all you rescue-oriented folks (too many to name!), thanks for being such dedicated people devoted to our bullies. And of course, thanks to Rel and Kaz for making this forum happen.

Good folks all 'round! :thumbsup:

Thanks for the props but it hasn't been quite that long. We're around a year. Long ass year.... :tongue: I also have had Erin (Baby Reba) jump in my corner with placing Doc and Ami (Pit Grrrl) has always been a big help to me. There are so many people that have reached out if things got too bad that I wouldn't know where to start. :thumbsup:

I have to re-inforce to thanks to this board- good job, guys!!!

I'm sure that most of these folks would be rescuing anyway, with whatever groups they are already affiliated with, but this board has allowed new connections to be made- and save dogs lives. I've worked with Pitbull Project, here in Seattle, for several years- but wouldn't have met Violet or Steph-n-Wolf otherwise. Because of them, I was able to help Tia/Betty find a home (hope it sticks!) in Seattle- and she was about to be put down in Oregon. This is great teamwork that wouldn't have happened through our "normal" connections.

Thanks Ariel and Kazou (and everyone else repsonsible for this board)!!!
