Puppies Ready for Adoption!

Female puppy available for adoption!

Today is the first day of adoptions for a litter of 6 female hound mix puppies! We will be at the Gainesville PetSmart today from 11-5 and tomorrow from 12-5. These puppies were born just a few weeks after their mom was pulled from the euthanasia list at the local county shelter. They are now 10 weeks old and ready to find forever homes!


I can't tell you all how many times I've answered the question "Where did you get that amazing dog?" I usually just say, "she's adopted", but sometimes I the whole story of how my (very truly awesome) dog Paris came into my life.

It had been a month since the very sudden passing of my little Roxy, a Rhodesian Ridgeback. I felt like my heart was missing, but my two cats did their best to fill the void left behind. I resolved not to try to replace Roxy, but knew if I were to get another dog I would opt for more of a Labrador or Australian Shepherd breed.

Happy Tails

You might have noticed a lot of "Happy Tails" stories on our website recently. We've been copying over Happy Tails from our previous website to our new one and still have a lot to go. It's wonderful to read these great stories again about how pets and people have made each other so happy! If you have a Happy Tail, we'd love to hear it -- please send us an email. For brief instructions, click the "Happy Tails" link on the left-hand side bar. We'll post new Happy Tails as soon as we get them. And don't forget, cats have happy tails too!


I've been DYING to tell you all my happy tails story! One of Lola's favorite tricks is to hunt her toys. She throws them across my apartment then crouches, stalks, and pounces. It's too funny! Also, she pouts, sometimes because she's not ready for sleep/bed so she lays UNDER her bed that's in the crate. It's so strange to look in the closed crate and have trouble finding my dog! She has so much personality that you can't help but smile when you're around her! Also at just 6 months she can sit, shake, high 5, lay down, and get in her crate on command!


We adopted Savannah about a month ago and she has been having a blast! She loves going to the park with our roommate's dog, Blue. They have a great time wrestling in the dirt and even occasionally beg to go! She has a bit of a shy nature and it has taken her a bit to get used to friends coming over, but slowly she's understanding that not everyone needs to be hidden from and she's even beginning to try and get some new people to play with her.


Her name was Fritsy we Adopted her on Fathers day (in June 2011), about 1 1/2 years old, we think she is a terrier mixed with a Jack Russell terrier; now her name is Lorax, for the Dr. Seuss Character defender of the environment!

Lorax loves to be taken to dog parks so she can meet other friends and run like a bullet. One thing that Lorax loves to do is get under the covers. One time we had family over from the south and she jumped into bed with them and slept under the covers all night. She is a social butterfly!


We changed Rambo's name to Camo because of his brindle color and his obvious ability to blend in.

My boyfriend decided to give me a wonderful Valentines Day present. We have another Pit Mix named Sassy, and we wanted a play mate for her. We had been talking about getting another dog for a while, but knew it would be that much more responsibility. That day we planed to meet our family for lunch, but before we went to lunch Ben took me to PetSmart. I was a little confused at this, asking if we needed food for Sassy.


June 2011 I adopted the best dog that has ever been a part of my life. His given name was originally Thane but my boyfriend and I ended up re-naming him Buddy because, well he is everyone's buddy. It doesn't matter if you're a dog, cat, horse, bird, or human he wants to be your friend. He was only 8 months when I adopted him and as a shepherd/lab mix so he had plenty of growing to do. He is now about 70 pounds but he thinks he is a lap dog. He'll crawl into your lap if you lay down with him and will always try to get as close to you as possible.

Levi and Grits

Levi is an energetic boy who LOVES to run and is fast as lightning. He likes fresh vegetables, having his ears scratched, going for rides and stealing socks out of the laundry. Even though we don't have any (human) children of our own, we learned that Levi really likes kids and is gentle and aware whenever they are around. Levi is a smart guy who always aims to please.


Saturday tends to be our day to run errands. Almost every Saturday we end up at Butler Plaza for one thing or another. We'd had our first dog, Bailey, since June 2009 and we would visit PetSmart to get the things we needed for her. While there, we would visit the dogs and cats that the shelters would bring in, and while we (at first) had no intention to adopt, it quickly became routine for us to make our weekly trip to PetSmart to love on the homeless puppies and kittens.
