Miss Maggie Mae!

Meet Maggie Mae!  She is a beautiful Australian Shepherd whose adoption story will really tug at your heartstrings!  Maggie is a snuggle bug with a wiggle butt that will surely make you smile!

Maggie 1
I’m one spoiled pup!
  • Name:  Maggie Mae
  • How I Got My Name: My human’s mother decided I looked more like a Maggie Mae than a Luna Mae, like she considered naming me.
  • Breed: Australian Shepherd
  • Nickname: Maggie Moo, Magoo, Miss Mae, and Wiggle Butt
  • Age:  Approximately 7
  • Adoption Date:  October 2014
  • Adoption Story: I was running wild through the streets of Fishing Creek when a lady saw me and made efforts to bring me closer to her.  She only had Chinese food and pizza for leftovers, which I sneakily made my very own.  She gently welcomed me indoors and showered me with love and a warm bath.  Upon my surprise, she had two furry friends in her tiny home, but there was no place for me to run and play.  She posted flyers, knocked on doors, and made Facebook posts to find my previous owners or a new home.  No one claimed me from the flyers, and others reported they had seen me running around for weeks.  That’s when my now human momma asked to give me a home.  She then took me to a vet to be checked for a microchip and to be well cared for.  I had a long recovery from malnutrition, mange, and various allergic reactions, but my momma loved me more than ever, and I stayed by her side.  At first, she let me live with her parents because she needed to return to school.  She then found a home that suited both her and I!  While living with my grandparents, I spent my time snuggling and playing, and soon my scars healed, my hair grew back, and I comforted my human companions with butt wiggles. I am now living with my human momma and am an only dog surrounded by lots of love!

 

  • Best Tricks: I do this pretty nifty trick where I randomly throw myself on the ground, roll over, and get endless belly rubs and treats. I also sit, stay, roll over, hug, jump, and bark on command!
  • Collar Color I Sport Best:  Maroon!  It brings out my beautiful fur features! Maggie 2
     
  • My Fur Family:  Me…and only me!
  • Favorite Fur Friends:  I most enjoy Dallas, a big, loving bulldog, who lives with my grandparents!  I am also very fond of the twice daily company of a wiggle butt Corgi that always stops outside my home to say hi!
  • Favorite Activities:  My all-time favorite things to do include sunbathing, taking long walks, snuggling my humans, playing tug, and begging for food and treats.
  • Favorite Toy:  I love my moose stuffed animal, marrowbones stuffed with peanut butter, and a tattered rope tug toy.  Nothing beats a good play session with my toys!
  • Favorite Treats/Food: I love, love, love my (Xylitol-free) peanut butter, cooked green beans, and peas.  I have some allergies, however, that require me to eat gluten free food and treats!
  • Favorite Memories of Pet:  I once taught myself to roll over, and my human momma tells me that this is her all-time favorite memory of me!
  • Life Lessons Learned From Maggie: 
    1.  Always comfort a friend.
    2.  Long walks and sunsets can soothe and calm any bad day.
    3.  Be the weight… then they can’t move or leave!

Luca 2
Me and my buddy, Rory!
  • Name:  Luca
  • How I Got My Name:   Out of nearly 4,000 names, Luca is the only one my owners could agree on!  It might have helped sway them that my dad’s name was Luzenac!

  • Nickname:  Einstein
  • Age:  2.5 years young!
  • Birthdate:  August 27, 2016
  • Adoption Story:  My owners have always wanted to raise a Great Pyrenees from puppyhood, and so along came me into their lives!

Rory, Mardi, and I all sit pretty for the camera!
  • Favorite Fur Friends:  Rory, Mardi, and Finn, of course!
  •  Favorite Activities: I enjoy walking and playing ball, although I most enjoy ball-playing in the house!  It is also a favorite pastime of mine to play with Mardi!  Lucky for me, I also have two human playmates as well – my owners’ granddaughters!
  • Favorite Toys:  I hope it’s not too cliché, but I really favor my tennis ball!  Boy, I have tons of fun romping around with that in the house!
  • Favorite Treats/Food:  Tail Banger Cookies – yum!!
  • Life Lesson Learned from Luca:  The thing about Luca is that she’s known for being the calmest in the pack.  She teaches her fur friends and human family the value of patience in this ever-busy, ever-demanding world we live in!

Vinny the Lazy Pug!

Meet Vincent!  Vinny is described as a “lazy” little puggly-wuggly fur friend who teaches you how to love and be loved.  He’s a remarkable little fella who knows how to steal hearts and take naps!

  • Name:  Vincent Paterno Keiser
  • How I Got My Name:  I am named after the greatest college football coach, Joe Paterno, PSU Football!
  • Breed: Pug
  • Nickname: Vinny, Vinny Bumper, Bumps, Chubbs, Baby boy
  • Age:  4 years young!
  • Birthdate:  November 21, 2014
  • Adoption Story:  My sister (Phoebe) and I thought we had our forever home all figured out.  Unfortunately, plans had changed, and we quickly became foster kids.  We kept our hopes high that we would be able to stay together; however, we knew that it might not be possible because we can be very hyper together.  Luckily, we found a forever home with two other Pugs (Abby and Lucy and later on, Clarice) when an animal-loving family took both of us home!
  • Best Tricks:  One thing I have mastered and a skill that can never be taken away from me is my ability to make food disappear!
  • Collar Color I Sport Best:  I have always preferred the “birthday suit,” “nudity” kind of look, but when my human sister (Hannah) makes me exercise, I settle for wearing my blue harness!

    Every man with a hammer needs a doggy supervisor! 
  • My Fur Family:  My fur sisters are Phoebe, Lucy, and Clarice who are also all pugs like me!  I also have three cat siblings, Nelly, Mo, and Kobe!
  • Favorite Fur Friends:  I like my sister, Phoebe, the best, but sometimes me and Lucy play together!
  • Favorite Activities:  My all time favorite things to do include sleeping all the time and taking trips to the beach with my human family (If it ain’t a dog-friendly beach house, it ain’t for us!)!
  • Favorite Toy:  I love squeaky and conveniently play with him before bed time.
  • Favorite Treats/Food: My daddy always gives me puppy food, but sometimes mommy spoils me and shares cheeseballs and powdered donuts with me.  They are my favorite!

 

  • Life Lesson Learned From Vinny: “Accept yourself.  As you can see by Vinny’s photos, he does not care about his figure.  He is not too interested in exercising and accepts himself as he is.  We all love him for that!  He doesn’t compare himself to his sisters who are a lot smaller than he is.  I think we can learn a lot from him by not wasting so much time changing or hating ourselves.”
