Happy Tails! – STANLEY (pka Benny)

We adopted Stanley (fma Benny) on October 1, 2013.  K-9 Angels rescued him from Harris County where he was sure to be put down because he has “funny feet.”

From the first moment we laid eyes on him, he captured our hearts.  He looks very similar to our other pup, Shelby.  Even though he has been in our family for less than 4 months, we can’t imagine our lives without him.  Stanley and Shelby are best friends and play like brothers and sisters do, loud and rough.

Nothing slows Stanley down, not even his cute, funny feet.  He enjoys visits to the dog park, long rides in the car, and loves everyone he meets.

We are so thankful for K-9 Angels, and we’re sure Stanley would agree with that too.

Happy Tails! – GEMMA & HOPE (pka Penny & Skunk)

My husband and I unexpectedly lost a beloved 13 year-old Chihuahua mix in January 2013.   I was devastated; I missed holding her, I missed her excitement when I got home from work,  I just missed everything about her.  My heart ached.

In March, I was browsing online and came across K-9 Angels, and there were some tiny Chihuahua-mix babies who needed a home.

I worked one Saturday and my husband went to K-9 Angels and got Penny (now Gemma) for me.  She was 1 pound 7 ounces; the 7 ounces were ears.  It was an immediate love affair.  That said, when my husband went to the adoption center to get her, he held a Chihuahua-Dachshund mix named Skunk.  He talked about her for weeks, and he kept checking online to see if she had been adopted.

About a month after we adopted Gemma, we were in the backyard relaxing and he said, “We’re going tomorrow to get that dog.”  So Skunk (now Hope) joined our family in April.

These dogs are precious.  They love each other, they love us, they love our guests, they love food, they love their backyard, they love their beds, they love their toys.  They are both happy and outgoing and full of life, and we will be forever grateful to K-9 Angels for saving them.  They bring such joy to our lives.  We are also happy to say that 2 friends who knew of our wonderful experience with K-9 Angels have adopted from K-9 Angels as well!

Happy Tails! – FITZ (pka Leftie)

Fitz (formerly Leftie) is living the life.   He has his own place on the couch to take naps (which he does often, as seen in the pictures).  He gets more and more treats because of all the tricks he’s learning (sit, down, roll over, and jump).  My husband taught him to jump up high into his arms.  Who knew this shorty could jump so high?

We definitely made the right choice in picking Fitz to be part of our family.  Thank you K-9 Angels!

This guy thought he’d never see his dog again. Then he followed this tip and found his best friend.

After 12 days of searching, he had lost hope. But then he learned about this awesome tip and how this has reunited many lost dogs with their families.

Happy Tails! – BARLEY (pka Shorty)

Hi!!!   I just wanted to give K-9 Angels Rescue an update on “Shorty”.  We are absolutely loving the new addition to our family and I have included a few photos from the last couple of days.  We have renamed him Barley “Shorty” Rife and he is getting along famously with his new sister Amelia.

Thank you for everything you and your organization do for our fur-baby friends.

I will recommend you to anyone looking to foster or adopt.

Happy Tails! – CALVIN

Attached is a picture of Calvin and Ethan on our way home yesterday!   He had no problem getting used to his new surroundings.  He had a great night’s sleep last night and is already out on his morning walk.  

Calvin is the perfect addition to our family which is why I am so thankful that I found you wonderful people at K-9 Angels Rescue (and why I’m so glad I didn’t hear back from the other rescue)!
