DREAM Dog Finally Home Story

Burt Balthasar

Adopted 12/16/21

Thanks for checking in on Burt. He is an absolute DREAM. We were meant for each other. We go on daily walks and explore the neighborhood. He likes to talk to all the other dogs especially the little chihuahua next door. If only he could get through that fence. We went to the beach for the first time, and he loved it. We are going to explore the dog park and see how he does.

Burt's new family includes two cats which he loves to chase and play with. They put up with him. At night he sleeps with me in the big bed like the prince that he is. He is such a good boy. All in all, I would say he has a pretty good life now. Lots of love and treats and regular puppachinos from Starbucks. Thanks so much for bringing us together.

Sofie Stephano

Adopted 12/12/21

We have changed Sofie's name to Zoë. She LOOOOVES her siblings. Her favorite is still the heeler, Lucy (but she is pretty fond of her mommy and daddy as well). Lucy has been, teaching her how to potty outside, plays with her non-stop, and seems to be teaching her how to learn commands like come, stay, etc. She follows my older dachshund around and copies him. He mostly ignores her. She is chilly in the mornings so she has a jacket she wears.

Elsie Fusilli

Adopted 10/10/21

We absolutely adore Elsie aka Beetle, to stay in theme with her sister Ladybug. She is rambunctious and silly. She is a Velcro dog and has to be touching either Mike or me at all times. I worried at first that maybe she and ladybug were coexisting rather than getting along but with time they have really grown into sisters. They play so much and are funny and wild when they do. I feel better going to work knowing they have each other to hang out with. Ladybug seems much more energized with Beetle around which is a plus. During the day when we are gone, I watch them on the camera and they just love to cuddle, it’s the cutest thing. We’re hoping with more time, Beetle will gain more confidence and feel safer with us. She is quite skittish. We just hope she knows she has a forever home now. We thank you again for giving us the opportunity to adopt two perfect dogs for our family!

Heidi Hermitage

Adopted 09/27/21

She is doing great. Very adaptable. Loves to sleep under the covers with me and other 2 doxies. Family and friends love her. She lets them rub her belly. I think she’s just showing off. After we wake up in the morning, I have to rub her belly and tell her how sweet she is before she’ll get out of bed. Sunning in the morning is fun too.

She’s completed her heart worm protocol with no problem.

She’s a Louisiana girl now.

Tena Tennis
"Katie Scout"

Adopted 08/29/21

Teena is doing well. She has been renamed Katie Scout as she is a designer doxie (Kate Spade) and seems to patrol our yard very regularly.

No surprise, she looks nothing like her mom, a dachshund, and must resemble her dad. She loves her adoptive brothers and gives them face kisses and plays continually. She now towers over them but they still rule the roost.

She is a great cuddler when she wants to be and can jump on the beds and the couch whenever she wants. But she also knows sit, no, go to bed (our term for the kennel) and loves to catch pieces of popcorn when treated. She loves walks and meeting new human friends.

She is due to get spayed this month and is up to date on all her shots and preventative meds. She is kind of a fussy eater, but not bad.

Thanks again and happy new year!

We adopted Buddy in July 2021. He was a courtesy listing on your website. This was one month after we adopted Chloe (now Daisy). The two of them plus our 2012 DREAM pup Cooper make a wonderful pack of three pups.

Buddy enjoys his car rides, puppy lattes at Starbucks, kayak rides, travel, sleeping with us, sitting on our feet, going in and out of his pup door, resting on all pieces of furniture, sleeping on his back, endless pets from us, playing with his toys. He even seems to enjoy his kitty brother and sister. He is a super sweet and funny little pup.

We love having him, Daisy and Cooper as our little DREAM pup pack. We lost one of our DREAM pups and one of our DRoH pups recently. We and Cooper felt a huge void in our home lives.

We are in touch with the family who gave Buddy up and send them pictures to let them know how he is doing. They like that.

Thank you for all that you do for the pups and the peeps!

Chloe Cajeta

Adopted 06/29/21
Deceased 08/16/22

We said goodbye to our sweet little old lady Daisy today. She joined our family on June 18, 2021 after her loving Mom became seriously ill.

She was about 16 and originally from Louisiana. She became a really sweet and funny part of our a little pup pack of three. Her brothers loved her — especially Cooper, who spent lots of time licking and licking on her.

We had lots of fun together. She entertained us with her unending appetite, desire to stand right under us or between our legs, loud snoring, shark-like qualities anytime food was present, and ever demanding stare for food. And so much more.

She was a great travel companion, kayak companion, car-rider, and life journeyer. She was not however, a great dining companion, as she regularly snatched food off our plates or bit our fingers in search of a snack.

Daisy had seemingly boundless energy until the last few days. She was overcome by an intestinal blockage that seemed to trigger underlying conditions that we didn’t even know about. She could not get past this, and we and the emergency vet knew it was time.

We know that she was greeted by her Mama, Anna Lou, who passed on shortly after we adopted Chloe-turned-Daisy. We know that all of our family of fur and flesh also welcomed her “home.”

We are all on this life journey together. Thank you to everyone who shares this aspect of our journey with us – our love of our fur family. And thank you to everyone for all of the love and support during the past few days.

We are at peace with this, although it is sad for us. We love adopting senior animals. We would absolutely do it again and will someday. They are uniquely special and so rewarding.

Thank you to Dr. Catherine Cloudt Powell and her assistant, Allie, for their great love and care over this last year and Dr. Patrick Satchell at South Texas Veterinary Specialty and Emergency Hospital in Austin who gave Daisy her end of life care with such kindness and warmth.

I forgot to include an update on Terry (we have renamed him Biscuit). He's adapted very well, absolutely loves my husband and has warmed up to me - I can now pick him up without him panicking- and has claimed every pillow in the house as his own. He's learning some new tricks and loves to go on walks. We're very happy he's joined our family.
