WE CHERISHED EACH ONE OF THESE SPECIAL DOGS RIGHT UP UNTIL THEIR LAST DAY. EACH OF THESE DOGS WERE LIFE-CHANGING FOR OUR TEAM MEMBERS, AND ADDED HEART AND SOUL INTO OUR SANCTUARY.
Oso was a rescue dog who lived to be a remarkable nineteen years old! As a stray puppy, this bear-like doppelgänger wandered his way onto a California ranch and instantly became the heart and soul of the operation.
Kai was an appreciative, mostly toothless Pekingese fellow who was about fifteen-years-old. Kai was discarded at an overcrowded shelter but found his way to life of luxury at the sanctuary.
Pepper's had the privilege to have this little lady with us for even a very very short time. Mavis was abandoned at a shelter in very poor health, she was taken in by True & Faithful Pet Rescue mission and nursed back to life.
Pennie had the ability to look at us and smile. Not just a small smile, but a full-on grin that screamed, 'I'm home, I'm happy, I'm loved!'. Sweet Pennie used to spend her days patrolling the perimeter of the yard, checking for rabbits and conversing with the chickens and turkeys.
Coco came to us from the Brussels Griffon Rescue after his owner passed away and the owner's children were unable to care for this sixteen-year-old fella. Coco had a few minor medical issues but trucked daily and got along so well with the rest of the pack.
This little lady was quite possibly the sweetest animal we have yet to encounter. There wasn't an aggressive bone in her tiny nine-pound body. Elsie was close to 100% blind but didn't seem to mind at all, and quickly figured out the lay of the land once she arrived at the sanctuary.
Mugzee was a character with human eyes and the grace of a distinguished gentleman. We loved him and will miss his giant underbite, his crazy walk, and his messy beard. It was an honor, a privilege, and a blessing to be part of his life.
With an oversized tail and a T-Rex-sized loving heart, this clumsy, bouncy Labrador-Mastiff mix was the second half of a dynamic dog duo that wandered onto a California ranch years ago and quickly became the very heart...
