Paige Pomodoro

Adopted 09/29/18

It has been so great adding Paige to my little family. She continues to warm up to her new brother, Sherlock. But she's already come a long way.

One thing Sherlock loves to do is play chase around the house. One day I got home from work and Paige and Sherlock were both so happy to see me. Paige sprinted into the garage then back out into the house, she ran around the house, and sprinted back into the garage. She did this a couple of times and Sherlock got excited and took off running with her. I loved seeing her so happy, and seeing her and Sherlock playing together. That has been one of my favorite moments with her so far.

She and Sherlock also often share a couch to sleep on during the day. Also, anytime Sherlock barks, she runs over to him and she'll either join him in barking or she'll sniff him and sort of inspect him to see if he's ok.

Sherlock and I love her so very much. She's precious and loving.

From Paige's foster mom:

March 2017, or 19 months, is how long I have fostered my sweet Paige. She has had a handful of meet and greets but none led to adoptions. I struggled trying to figure out why no one saw how special she is and at the same time happy I had her a bit longer in our lives.

After a couple meet and greets I stopped worrying about it because she always came back home. The application this month was no different until I spoke to the adopter, she didn’t care about all her quirks, her chunky butt or her prescription food. We all decided that since I had Paige so long a overnight meet and greet was in order so Paige would have some time to settle in, overnight turned to a week trial and I was still in denial.

Today my sweet Paige officially joined her new family and gained a fur brother, only 1 brother; I know she will love having more attention but she is leaving a huge whole in our hearts. While we will miss her tons, I know her new home is a better fit and that fills my heart with joy.

A quick update on Queenie Quality, which has been renamed Shana Hartman. She is adjusting very well. No behavioral problems. She is potting only outside. Her sleeping is all night long. She is very clingy to her momma. Very alert to her surroundings and has found her barking voice. She is a blessing to our family! Thank you all again for all you do. Support your cause and hearts of gold.

Proud owners of a Dream adoption dog.

We are doing great! Her new name is Rosebud and she has settled in our home just fine. Our older dog Rusty tolerates her, but on walks they are joined at the hip sniffing things together and walking great on a tandem leash. She loves to walk! She is also learning to swim, and getting acquainted with other dogs. She is my little shadow! We are so happy we found her!

Ava Audi

Adopted 07/15/18

Oh we just love our little Ava. She is a stubborn and loving little ball of happiness! Ava likes to go swimming in the pool!She snuggles up and runs and plays with her new dog sister Sadie and she just loves to chew on the bigger dog bones and not hers. She snuggles in her special blankets on the couch every chance she gets after a nice walk around the lakes in our neighborhood. We are so blessed to have her since we lost one of our labs just 2 weeks after we got Ava. She really brings joy into the house as well as into our Sadie's (11 yr old lab) life.

Adopted 07/07/18

I knew Mary would need a lot of work when I adopted her, but I also knew that she was worth it. She spent her first four days with me cowering underneath a table. Now, she never wants to leave my side. Mary is slowly shedding her more reserved self and is opening up to the world around her. I couldn't be more proud of the progress she's made. Through it all, DREAM team members have offered support and helpful advice whenever I need it. I am very thankful to them for seeing the potential in Mary and rescuing her. I hope to continue DREAM’s work by providing for Mary the best I can going forward.

Prince has been a blessing to our family! When he came to us he was very shy around men but with several training sessions he already has come a long way. Prince follows his new big brother JT around everywhere and they have quickly bonded. Playing, snuggling and getting treats are some of Prince and JT's favorite moments together. Prince loves to sleep in our bed at night, gives us tons of kisses, and loves to snuggle with us! Prince has quickly became a part of our forever family!

Maddie Mesa

Adopted 06/02/18

Maddie is the biggest sweetheart! She has brought such joy and love to our household. She is getting along well with her brother Jack, and she's adapting well to her new home. Her favorite things are sun bathing in the yard, napping on the couch with Jack, and playing with her squeaky toys. Jack has been our only dog for quite some time, so we were worried about bringing a new sister home for him, but they get along great! Maddie even taught Jack her begging trick. Maddie is also a great "co-worker" when we work from home. She likes to know what we're working on! Thank you so much for rescuing Maddie and bringing her into our lives. She is a delight and we're thrilled to have her as part of our family.

Daisy Drums

Adopted 06/01/18

Daisy is a blessing. She is a hard lover and shows so much love and gratitude to my husband and I. She has two brothers, Maximus (Dutch Shepard) and a Ruger (Tweenie Long Haired Dachshund). They both absolutely love Daisy, and know she is Princess of the house. Daisy enjoys swimming in the lake, running at the park and snuggling under the comforter when she sleeps. We fostered Daisy for 2 hours (foster fail and proud of it 🤣) and knew she deserved to be so loved and knew we could provide that to her. She now lives a wonderful life and we enjoy her being part of our family. We are truly blessed by her.

Kendra Kettle
"Piper Parker"

Adopted 05/19/18

Kendra is now Piper Parker. Piper is now a loving and loved member of our family. She and Thalia have become a deeply bonded pair. Right now Thalia has gone to work and Piper is on a hunger strike, sitting on her perch on the back of the couch by the window while her breakfast is untouched on the other side of the room. Piper is healthy and happy (at least when Mama is home). Piper is amazingly smart. We had a doggy door installed and she adapted to it immediately, so she goes in and out whenever she wants. The yard is fenced and we keep the gate locked. Piper is gradually getting over her fears and insecurity and becoming more outgoing and assertive. She is a jumper and loves to run and jump on all the furniture. She now is more accepting of our friends and other people who come into her house, but she still doesn't like for them to pet her or touch her and she lets people know when they get too close.

They took up with each other almost immediately and get along perfectly. Abby ran right up to my Matthew the first time she saw him and they've been inseparable ever since. :) We couldn’t have asked for a sweeter girl, and are so thankful she's ours. Thank you for all you do!

Sandor Clegane

Adopted 03/02/18

Samson's only been with us 3 months, but it seems like he's always been part of our family. Friends and family all love him. He's great with kids, adults, and other dogs.

With his calm demeanor and sweet personality, he fits in anywhere. We've taken him to stay in hotels a few times and he's a perfect guest. On weekends, he goes with us to run errands. He's a big favorite at Home Depot. After a busy morning, he likes going to restaurants for lunch on the patio. He's so well behaved, lying on his blanket chewing a rawhide or Kong.

He's even gone to visit at a nursing home and was friendly and a complete gentleman. Wheelchairs and walkers didn't worry him one bit, and he loved the attention the residents gave him.

Access to the dog door lets him come and go as he pleases. He's made it his job to keep the backyard free of squirrels and birds and he takes his work seriously. :-) He goes out a few steps and waits for us to come out too, then charges out to the yard. It's like he wants to show us what a good job he does patrolling the yard. It's just precious to see the little "watch me' look on his face.

We're so grateful we could adopt Samson! Thanks for the work you do.

Max Mockingbird

Adopted 02/24/18

When we first got Max, we kept saying..there’s nothing wrong with him, why would someone give him up? Now we say, I’m glad they did because he’s perfect for us so it was meant to be!

On his first ride home, my daughter kept saying, “look at him mom, isn’t he special.” She had wanted a dachshund since she was about 6 years old. Max loves belly rubs, kisses, long walks, loud, squeaky toys, chasing Butterfly, being chased, greeting the local dogs, and most of all, his grub! So, to keep his trim waist, he walks a mile or so each day:) He is very loved!

We are getting along beautifully. Praline enjoys the company of our new Momma, Mimi, Aunt Deedee, and Parian. She loves to play with her Aunt and Parian while I do homework in the evenings and sometimes she likes to watch TV with my roommate and her boyfriend during the day. We are learning how the phone and FaceTime works so that we can keep in touch with Mimi! She loves to bark at EVERYONE except for her new family. We recently took a trip to Kisatchie National Forest and discovered Praline loves to dig in the sand and find souvenir rocks to haul home. She likes to have someone to keep her company at home if I have to go somewhere, but she's super good for whoever it might be that hangs out with her. She LOVES to tear up her toys and her new Chaco matching collar and leash with my sandals! Thanks so much to DREAM for connecting us, I can't imagine life without my little nugget running around and snuggling up to me.

Chad did a phenomenal job of fostering her and giving me the complete history of Helen, including her records, behavior, eating habits, food, routine, etc. He even brought her bed and favorite blanket! I think he was sad to let her go!!! Helen has taken to the doggie door like a champ! After she first used it, she went back and forth (four times) in and out (I think just to make sure it was working). Absolutely no accidents in the house! I have been snuggling with her and she has warmed up quickly! She gets Cheerio treats after she goes potty and she has already learned to go straight to the kitchen cabinet when she comes back in the house. Smart Girl!
