This is a rescue dog! We found Wiley at a no-kill animal shelter called the Hillside SPCA in Pottsville, PA. He joined our family in July of 2011. Rescue dogs make the best pets; I would know. My family has had pound puppies my whole life and I am a better person because of it. This is a place we can share our stories and spread the word: get a rescue pet!
The Rescue Dog Blog continued to establish itself as a global presence this week. We started on Monday with Mac. Mac is a very special Pit Bull whose mom refused to give up on him when many others would have. Now Mac and his mom work together to give the same chance to other pitties who need someone to go the extra mile for them. On Tuesday we expressed our heartfelt sorrow for the people and animals affected by the storm that tore through the mid-west. Wednesday we concluded our Great Outdoors Photo Share, and I am now taking suggestions for the next one. Thursday we met Meko. Meko's story is great because she is quite the character and her mom is very good at catching her in her naughty and silly moments. Finally, on Friday I showed you how Wiley and I hope to spend our free time this weekend.
Please email me if you have any rescue stories to share or any suggestions for the next photo share! firstname.lastname@example.org
