A sad dog story that ends in a happy life for two disabled dogs; Eve and Dillon

Two dogs who found each other and became great friends

Eve was found abandoned on Christmas Eve when she was a nine week old puppy. 

She was in a bad way as it had been snowing hard. 
She was freezing to death. She did recover but is deaf and only has one working eye. 
She ended up at the Marley's Mutts Dogs Shelter. 

She is eleven months old but found it hard to socialise with the other dogs due to her loss of hearing and limited sight.

But when another disabled dog was also handed in to the Dog Shelter life became so much better for Eve

Dillon is two years old. He is blind and his owner put him in boarding kennels but did not come back to retrieve him. Dillon was then passed on to the shelter a few weeks ago.
When the dogs met they formed a bond instantly.
They use each others available senses to get around and have both grown in confidence. They became inseparable very quickly.

The staff at the dog shelter were hoping the dogs could be adopted together.
They were not optimistic though because both are cross breeds and large dogs.
Then there were the disabilities to consider too.

They have a Facebook Page where they have photos and the stories of each dog that is available for adoption. Eve had already been on the Facebook Page for a while and a potential new owner had come to visit the shelter to see her. When she saw how the two dogs were together and the love they had for each other she did not have the heart to separate them.

So now both Eve and Dillon have found a loving home and an eleven year old pal too

Both these dogs had a very sad and cruel start in life.
But they found each other just in time to become part of a family

Eve and Dillon happy in their new home together

Here is a great story about an English Bull Terrier called Nellie.

Nellie the English Bull Terrier who digs up truffles in her back garden.

Nellie the English Bull Terrier is owned by a couple in the UK and has been digging up their garden since 2007.

The owners were at first annoyed until they realized what she was looking for.

She was finding and digging up truffles. 

Black Autumn Truffles to be precise lol.

It is great to hear a nice story about this breed of dog.

English Bull Terriers make wonderful pets.

My belief is that if you treat your dogs with respect and kindness they will be loving and gentle pets.

Truffles are extremely hard to come by and almost unheard of in the UK.

The owners make around £1000 a year by selling the truffles and say it pays for some of the upkeep of their much loved family dog.

For the full story and some more wonderful photos of Nellie the English Bull Terrier with a nose for truffles click the news story link below.

A heart warming story of a dog left abandoned but saved

This is the video story of a pit bull dog who was abandoned and left to die.
He was rescued by the dog charity who drove three hours to get to him.
He was scared and sick.
They approached very slowly until they gained the dog's trust.
We see how his health progresses after one week, then two weeks until he is fully healthy at ten weeks.
We also see Gideon as they called him transform into a happy and playful dog.
He is now up for adoption.

The smallest dog in the world Boo Boo is about to lose its Guinness World Record Title

Beyonce is the smallest dog in the world
The chihuahua Boo Boo is officially the smallest dog in the world.

But at 4 inches tall it is soon to be beaten in the Guinness World Book of Records.

A new puppy was born two weeks ago that weighed one ounce.  She has been call BeyoncĂ© after the singer because her carers have said she is a survivor just like the song.

The puppy's mother, a Dashound mix called Casey was abandoned by it owner in California when the dog became pregnant.  The dog rescue center that received her was going to put her down because they did not have enough funding to care for her and the expected litter.

Another Rescue Center, The Grace Foundation, stepped in and saved the mother and delivered her five puppies. 

All five puppies are now up for adoption in a few weeks.

The center has applied to the Guinness Book of records to have BeyoncĂ©  become the official worlds smallest dog.
