    Two New Rescues

    Our volunteer stopped by a shelter to place a hold on a dog and a man came up and asked her to take Romeo and Juliet to keep them out of the shelter. They were flea infested and filthy but, generally pretty healthy...

    Here is a before shot of Juliet. She looks like she was used as a floor mop...

    After my wife groomed her. She's a very loving girl...

    A before shot of Romeo; he was as dirty as Juliet but his hair was shorter...

    After my wife groomed him and was able to save quite a bit of his coat. He's a cute little guy...

    Romeo and Juliet together...

    BTW: I don't try for great "before" pictures. They are just to give us a benchmark of how the dogs look when they arrive. I have to shoot quickly before they go into the tub for washing...

    They visited the vet today for spay and neutering as well as some dental work and microchipping. They are sweet dogs, ready for adoption soon...

    That has just GOT to have commercial potential. People would line up to buy that as a card (birthday, anniversary, valentine's).

    Re: Two New Rescues

    One of our volunteers is urging me to do a photo book of our rescues with before and after pictures and finalizing each dog with an adopion picture. I think I will do it, even it it is not commercially viable; it would be nice to have at our rescue events to give people an idea of what we do to and for these dogs...

    BTW... I hope that no one minds my posting so many rescue images. Due to the financial problems here in the USA, many people are losing their houses and need to place their dogs.

    Last year we had a total of 30 rescue dogs fostered in our house. So far this year; we have had 44 dogs go through our house on their way to furever homes. Prorated, we will probably end up fostering around 50 to 60 dogs during this year in our home alone.

    Our volunteers foster other Maltese in various area of the USA. We have found that there are some areas that have a surplus of certain breeds and other areas which lack those breeds. We have found that older male Maltese will be adopted more easily in Oregon and the State of Washington than here in Southern California. This is also true for Chihuahuas.

    A volunteer has donated airfare from his frequent flyer program (he is a salesman) and I will be flying an older male Maltese up to Oregon later this month. We have a foster up there ready for him and some applications for adoption have already been received.

    That together picture is adorable! Great work, Richard - both in photography and with the rescues.

    Re: Two New Rescues

    Did Romeo just showed a nice small grin? Hehe. Thank you very much for your constant encouraging stories about rescued dogs, Richard.

    Re: Two New Rescues

    Juliette has gone to her "furever family" and Romeo is flying to the Pacific Northwest with one of our vounteers today for adoption in the State of Washington. He looks pretty sharp after our TLC!

    Romeo:

    He is no longer the frightened little boy that he was when we got him. Romeo has been socialized and likes nothing better than to spend an evening in my wife's lap watching televisin.

    The perfect ending to the story.
