HAPPY TAILS ARCHIVES:
Many many happy stories can be told about the wonderful homes our shelter animals have gone to. Lives have been saved and happy futures have been created.
Thank you to all of the organizations that assist us with our mission and thank you to all of the loving individuals who have opened up your hearts and homes to give a homeless animal another chance.
Thanks very much for checking up on Blanquita. We have found all the volunteers at Pawsitive Match very helpful and caring and that s one the reasons we wanted to adopt through Pawsitive Match. Blanquita is doing very well and we are enjoying her very much.
About a week and a half after we got her she had worms but Nicole and the rest of the medical team at Pawsiive Match were very helpful and she is much better now. She has settled in at our house and we are all very happy. John always says we are so lucky to get such a great dog.
We kept her name as she comes to it and it actually really suits her. I think that she is a little disappointed that the snow is going away because she actually loved it. She is learning to play with toys now and she loves playing at the dog park. She is an amazing little dog.
Thanks again for checking in with us and thanks to all the other Pawsitive Match volunteers for all there help.....Cristy Viberg
Now named Oona, is at home safely in Yellowknife, Canada.
She has adjusted very well, especially to the climate. She has an older brother named Finn who she loves to play with...really they just play all day long. She has gotten used to being off leash and running on the frozen lakes chasing balls and any other dog that comes in her path.
We have had no issues with her whatsoever. We are very lucky to have gotten such a well trained dog and enjoy every minute with her.
We took her for a routine check up and she is very healthy so far which is good news. The past few weeks she has grown and her personality comes out more and more each day. I will keep you updated.
Poncho ( formerly Andy ) is doing awesome! He's such a joy to have around. He is very comical and friendly, fast learner, and is loved by everyone he meets. We did start off with some concerning health issues. He did test positive for Jardia! So we left the vet with a weeks supply of antibiotics and info on the Jardia parasite, and how difficult it can be to stop the cycle. We were very vigilant with poop clean ups and surface cleaning. The most important thing is that i stayed home with him to make sure his medicine was staying down.
Attached are a few photos of Poncho after a nice warm bath and brush out. Brandie, Carmine & Poncho
PS - He loves his pile of toys and is very spoiled. He seems to just appreciate all the simple things in life - Food, Toys, & Love.
I am happy with Coco, he is so lovely and good boy. He likes so much the cuddles, attentions, treats and he is a big licker but he is licking each day lesser, I guess he feels the love and stability that he needs. The accident are home with the toilet are lesser and lesser, he likes to go out for walking four time each day :).
We continue calling him Coco, because he recognizes that name, sometimes I call him "Coquito" (little Coco), "Cocosette" ( my favourite Venezuelan Cookie) or my husband call him "El Coco" (as Big Coco) because he said is an important way to be called hehehehe
Also we have another Dog called Paulina, they are great together, they use to play some part of the day, fight for loving and receiving Cuddles (I don't know why?, is something in their nature, because my heart is enough big to love them and more...) In summary, I am very happy. I guess Paulina found his brother and I found another son :0)
Thanks so much to the Association for everything. Hope I can help you more, now is difficult as foster home but I will find the way to help you guys with this wonderful mission!
Sheba is doing AWESOME! We could not have asked for a more perfect puppy. When she arrived she was only 8.5 lbs, and now is 17 lbs! She has gone through 3 coat sizes and is ready almost for the next size up.
Her training is going really well, and the first week of March she is starting structured obedience and agility intro classes. I am super excited about this. She has proven to be the perfect dog for our family, and gets along beautifully with everyone. I am even considering training her for pet therapy since even as a 5 month old puppy she is so gentle and calm.
She gets her microchip next week when she is also getting her next deworming plus we are correcting some complications from her spay surgery in Mexico. So she is getting it all done at once.
She is perfect and gorgeous!
Attached is a photo from the day after she arrived,
and then one from this morning. :) It is amazing what some good food, TLC and love can do!
Thank you so much for giving her the chance at a family, and thank you so much for helping bring her to our family. Shelley
Sara is doing well, and has adjusted nicely!!! We are so happy to have her.
No issues with house training at all, just need to watch to see her head to the back door!!
We kept her name, and she knows it well now.
Thank you so much for helping us find Derby! She's a perfect addition to our little family. We're so blessed! She's smart and funny, sweet, saucy shes adapted to thes cold Canadian winters so easily and we're planning a big camping trip in the Okanagan this summer. We're still working on her recall before she can go leashless like her big sis Atticus- queen of the off leash park! I'm so excited to see her grow up and become a great dog. Thanks again, we'll update you on her shenanegans as she grows.

ROCCO, is doing great! He is setting in just fine.
If I knew another dog would be a wonderful as he is I would get him a buddy. We kept his name it seemed to suit him being from Mexico and all. Here is a picture from Christmas time.
Thanks again he is wonderful and I have mentioned Pawsitve Match to a few of my friends who are looking into getting a pet.
