Update on Brady

In some ways, I can't believe "the new dog" has been with us for an entire year, but I can hardly remember what our family was like without Brady. He has so many incredibly sweet and charming qualities. He is the best snuggler I have ever met. He is so quick to roll over and offer you his belly to pet. He gives the sweetest little kisses, even though he's a large BT (40 pounds these days!). He is the perfect companion for our "problem dog," little Molly, who can be a little difficult and not a fan of other dogs since her puppy mill momma days. Brady knows to let Molly snuggle when she wants to and even kisses her all over her face. When Molly gives the signal, Brady backs off.

I just cannot find enough good words to describe Brady.... loyal, sweet, fun, patient, excitable, CUTE. The list just goes on and on. We are so blessed to have him as part of our family and are eternally grateful to NEBTR and the McFadden's for helping bring him into our lives.

Foster Rosie

Hi! my name is Rosie and I am estimated to be around 3 years old!

I love my name! My Foster sister gave me that name. See, I never had a name. I lived in a wire cage all my life and was used to produce puppies. Now I am free and loving every minute of it! My foster mom says I am very smart. I go potty outside, watch all my foster fur brothers and sisters do their thing so I do it too. I do sleep in a comfy crate, and I love to be held by my foster family. Because I am a puppy mill dog, I do need some extra care and love. Sometimes I do not understand things and get very scared. But, I am willing to watch and learn. I love dogs and people and just an all around great girl. I am ready to be the best pet I can be! I am eager and ready to please!!!

Her foster mom Tammy Trivelpiece says, "What a dog! I have never quite had a mill dog like Rosie. She is a nut! Loves ice cubes! its like watching 'boston Hockey'. She will bat one around for a long time before trying to eat it. She loves rope toys, and paper towel rolls. She is a quick learner and adapts to her surroundings without much anxiety." Tammy just loves Rosie to pieces!
