Who Rescued Who? Meet Bristol!

On Christmas Eve morning,  Kim and Frank D. ran to the pet store to get a few holiday treats for their beloved cats. Lo and behold, “Cold Nose, Warm Heart Dog Rescue” was having an adoption event. It didn’t take long before they spotted the most beautiful Boxer/Pitbull mix puppy with the saddest eyes hiding in the back of her crate. All of her siblings had quickly been adopted, and she was all alone. Who on earth could leave a puppy all alone, especially on Christmas Eve?

The puppies had traveled a remarkable distance from a kill shelter on the Tennessee and Virginia border, and after hearing the gorgeous pup’s story, it took less than 10 minutes of holding her to decide  where her forever home was going to be!

Bristol is the perfect addition to their home in Chester, NJ. She lives her doggie brother and her kitty siblings. To this day, those big, pleading eyes still allow her to get away with a lot more than she should!

Cold Nose Warm Heart Dog Rescue is a non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing homeless and abandoned dogs from high-kill shelters.   Through a network of committed volunteers and foster homes, they are able to rescue dogs, provide them with loving temporary care, and find them well matched, thoroughly screened forever homes.

Who Rescued Who? Meet Wyatt!

WyattOur April spotlight showcases “Why Not Wyatt,” the German Shorthair who points at birds, a pile of sticks, a Prius, and everything in between!

Wyatt was adopted by Kate and John back in 2010 when they heard his heartbreaking tale. Wyatt’s owner became ill and shortly thereafter, passed away. While the husband tried very hard to take care of Wyatt, the memory of his wife training him for Field Trials, and taking him wherever she went took an emotional strain on his ability to care for the elderly pup. Grieving, the husband gave Wyatt to another home. Even then, Wyatt could not stay long in the 2nd home, as the  couple realized he was high energy and not suited as a “house dog.”  Having a new baby in the house, the couple started searching for new parents for Wyatt. If they didn’t find one soon, Wyatt would be euthanized.

wyatt2When Kate and John heard Wyatt’s story, they drove over to meet him and to see what kind of disposition he had. Well, John took to Wyatt like a bee to honey, and Kate didn’t get a word in edgewise. With a clip to the collar, Wyatt was brought back to Bethlehem Township. He can often be seen hiking with his pal Annie. While Wyatt may not be the brightest crayon in the box, he is  a sweet and gentle old soul. Also known as the 75lbs steam-roller, Wyatt’s daily activities include chasing soccer balls and playing with the neighbor’s blonde Lab. He is a sweet  old pup, and will live out his dog days over in Hampton on plush dog beds and a loving home.
