Girlie (click on pic for enlargement)
Girlie is a "white Aussie" adopted by Jean Owen 2 years ago from a lower Manhattan shelter. Since 9/12, she has spent 100's of hours working at the WTC Family Crisis Center and visiting neighborhood firehouses that lost so many in the 9/11 tragedy. She has done amazing work with the children who have lost their parent(s) at the World Trade Center, bringing smiles and moments of happiness to their world of sorrow and confusion. Girlie was featured on Live with Regis & Kelly the week of January 21, 2001.
In addition to all of her "community service", Girlie has earned some pretty impressive titles such as; AX (Agility Excellent), AXJ (Agility Excellent Jumpers), CGC (Canine Good Citizen) and TDI (Therapy Dogs International).
Although Girlie was born as a result of Merle-to-Merle breeding and has excessive white markings, she appears to have no visual/hearing impairments. We would like to thank Jean for allowing us to share Girlie's excellent qualities and achievements with other Aussie lovers everywhere.
Wonder is an 8-month-old who is blind and deaf. He was adopted, but returned because the other dogs were picking on him. He is now in foster in Kanab, UT and still in need of a loving, forever home. Wonder would benefit greatly by living with another friendly dog that will help him learn the ropes. His foster mom says he is a "velcro" dog that loves to hang out with his human family. Please help Wonder find his new home!!! If you are interested in giving Wonder a second chance, please contact Diane at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
We've received a wonderful thank you letter for a successful adoption that we would love to share with you. Hopefully, more will be posted soon. Please click on the "thank you" link to read it.
