Happy Tails! – CHAMP (pka Big Al)

Hi, I’m Champ, formerly “Big Al”.  I spent the first year of my life stuck in a cage with little food or water.  K-9 Angels rescued me last October, and my parents, who were initially planning to foster me, decided to adopt me instead.  When I came home with them I was super skinny and scared of many things, but in time my mom & dad have helped me learn to trust, and my doggy pals Zack & Lili have helped me learn to play.  I’m smart and learned all my basic commands in no time.  There isn’t a lot I won’t do for a slice of turkey pepperoni, and I’ve gained a much needed 20 lbs.Cuddling is my favorite activity, but I also enjoy long walks on the beach, playing with toys from my toy box, fetching and chasing and running around in my backyard.   I’ve even started jumping into the pool with my mom!

I think I’m the lucky one, but my parents think that they are!  They tell everyone that they’ve won the doggy lottery, because I’m the happiest, most loving, affectionate dog in the world!

Thank you K-9 Angels, thank you from all of us!  XOXO

Happy Tails! – ALPHONSE (pka Goliath)

Alphie has overcome many obstacles and is currently in excellent health.   In the three months since adoption, he has grown from 8 lbs to 35!   He is now walking with the big dogs both morning and evening, preferring to lead them by their leashes!   He is a very sweet, personable and other animal-friendly pup!   Thanks for helping rescue him!

Happy Tails! – HECTOR and GILDA

Hector and Gilda love being siblings we are so happy we all got together.  So glad we found K-9 Angels!  We got Hector in January as our first dog and a few months later decided he needed a sibling.  We brought him into the adoption center and he and Gilda played very well together.  They are both hyperdogs that love wearing each other out.  Now they go everywhere together.  They pretend to fight/play but when you are not looking they cuddle with each other.  Both didn’t smile when we got them since they were young but after a week or so at  home each one showed their true awesome personalities. Gilda just had to get used to the fact we weren’t going to take her back to the rescue.   After a week she figured that out and now she smiles all the time. Hector went from an “only Child” to thriving as a “big brother”.

Happy Tails! – TINK (pka Bacall)

Tink (formerly Bacall) was adopted almost one year ago as a companion dog to our Chico.  Sad little eyes were quickly replaced by a very playful,  mischievous nature.  We have learned that Tink loves meaty bones, chasing anything that expels water and digging in puddles.  Mostly, she loves giving kisses in exchange for a belly rub.  A true beauty, she is the princess in our home.
Thank you K-9 for your tremendous efforts to help these animals!

Happy Tails! – HARLEY (pka Rod Stewart)

Hello everyone at K-9 Angels Rescue!  I’m sending  you this update about sweet loveable “Harley” Barnes.  We were told he’s a Havanese / Lhasa Apso Mix but to us, he’s just our loveable Harley! – Cream color – male! I was adopted by my loving forever family on 8-31-2013.   I’ve really had it great living here!  So much love… & I’m spoiled a little bit.  I’m so loveable & I never give anyone any problems.  I have very nice manners, love going on walks & car rides.  They even let me stick my head out of the window & I love when the wind blows in my face!  I still love my toys & it’s fun to play fetch with my toys.  I’m very neat since I like to keep all my toys under the coffee table & I get the one I want to play with.  My family loves how I scamper to go get the toys they toss I love the exercise & the fun chasing them!   I hear my family say all the time they couldn’t have ever chosen a sweeter dog & that they didn’t know what they’d have done without me!  I’ve got to say, I’m really happy things all worked out like they did because I couldn’t be a happier dog!

I only weighed 20 lbs when I was adopted but after 2 yrs, I’ve gained up to 25.8  lbs at my last visit with Dr. Erin Braley Floyd.  She said my weight, teeth, overall health was really good & she always said my heart sounded really good even though when I was adopted they told me that I was “Low Positive” for heartworms.   My family has always been so good to give me my Heartguard on the exact day each month.  Twice Dr. had to say Harley was still low positive but when we went for my annual visit last month on 8-14-15…. We were all so excited because we got the best news ever!! Harley got his annual test & he was heartworm NEGATIVE!!!  The Heartguard did it’s job!!   Thrilled with the news doesn’t come close to the feeling we all shared!   We just had to pass this exciting news on to my K-9 rescue family!  It’s been 2 yrs since I was adopted, so we think that I’m about 4 yrs old now.  I’m just so happy that Kelly found my picture on your website & found me!  I’ve really got a great life here!  They love me so much & I love them beyond words!  I’ve attached a couple of my recent photos!

Thanks again for rescuing our adorable Harley!  If you remember the foster family who cared for me for a couple of weeks before I was adopted, I sure would like for you to pass on our exciting health news to her since she took such good care of me for a couple of weeks. I was so sweet, I bet the foster family will remember me when they see my photo we attached.

Happy Tails! – GUINNESS (pka Cole)

It has been almost a year since we adopted little Guinness (Cole); and he has become a fun, welcome part of our family.  This little spoiled pup sleeps with his daddies every night, plays with his kitty brothers, sometimes getting a good swat from them, and lounges on the nice big sofa at night.  We had a fun time celebrating his first birthday (July 4th), even baked a cake especially for him.

Happy Tails! – MAX (pka Angelo) and IRVING

Max (previously “Angelo”) and Irving were part of a six-pup litter that was brought in to K-9 Angels Rescue and adopted to separate homes.  Last weekend, Max and Irving’s doggy parents got them together for a very happy reunion!  Once Max and Irving got reacquainted, they pretty much ignored all the other dogs.  They had so much fun playing together, running all over the dog park, frolicking in the grass, and acting like the very cute boys that they are.  It was fun to see how many mannerisms they share with each other and also the little things that make them unique.  Irving and Max are both very sweet dogs who have made their doggy parents very happy.
If anyone adopted other puppies from this litter (which included Hermione, JK, Ernest, and Stu), please do get in touch (than.vlachos@gmail.com) if you want to meet their siblings!  Now that Irving and Max have found each other, they are going to have many more doggy adventures together.
