Friday's Friend: Dog Adoption, Lab Rescue of the L.R.C.P., Inc.

WOOF!! Barkingly pawsome- another Friday!!!! Hope you got some great plans for the weekend! If you are like my humans and like the quiet lifestyle, my friend "Lab Lady" has brought by the perfect dog for you to check out! WOOF!!!!

Please meet London!

(C) Lab Rescue of L.R.C.P., Inc. 
London is a 5 year old, 45 lbs., female Yellow Labrador Retriever  whose human must live in a quiet neighborhood with a solid fence.  The humans must lead a quiet lifestyle with limited hubbub.  Barkingly, she needs a confident and calm companion dog to show her the ropes.  This sweet lady wants a very subdued household with limited visitors, an adult-only household would likely be best.

London likes to checks things out easily and quietly.  While she may be curious and shy at first, she has not had pawingly much exposure to humans so it takes her a bit at first.  She is an easy companion, very calm and absolutely quiet. 
Another dog in the household that would quietly take the lead and teach her the ins and outs of living with "humans" would be a great benefit to her.  She would often wait for the dog at her foster home to go out, then she would follow.  She enjoyed sitting outside next to him enjoying the day.  She will watch him play fetch with his human but hasn't joined in yet.

London enjoys going out in the backyard and exploring to find her own quiet space to watch the world go by.  She will hang out with you while you do your gardening or other yard chores. 

London has no experience with cats.  She is approved for children 18 years and older.  She would do best around children who are less noisy than others.  WOOF!

If you enjoy a quiet lifestyle and are looking for a pawsitively pawfect quiet companion, she may be the dog for you!

Friday's Friend: Dog Adoption, PetConnect Rescue

I have missed writing about my friends needing "Forever Homes"   My humans were traveling and I got to visit with my Uncle Ed so I didn't get to write.

"Friday's Friend" is back and I'll be sharing with you many friend's needing "Forever Homes!"   My buddy "Big Bruno" from PetConnect Rescue has brought me precious young lady for you to meet!  WOOF!

Meet Palma!!

(C) PetConnect Rescue

A 1 year old, 13 lbs., wire-hair type, Schnauzer/Terrier mix, Palma is not only looking for a "Forever Home" but "forever snuggles" too.  Palma is tremendously sweet and just loves to cuddle.

Palma was a recent rescue by PetConnect Rescue on August 29, 2015.  She has already stolen the hearts of the volunteers at Muddy Paws Farm!

She is crate trained and seems to possibly be potty trained, though it's a little early to know for pawsitive, barkingly, no accidents so far!  WOOF!!

Palma is a calm quiet girl, so she would likely prefer a household that is the same.

She gets along great with other dogs, and enjoys time with humans as well.

I doubt this young lady will last long before she's on her way to her "Forever Home" so don't hesitate to apply if you are interested.  She is highly adaptable to her situation which adds to her many pawtastic qualities.

Palma is spayed, up-to-date on vaccines and preventatives and eager to find her forever home!

To meet Palma, please complete the PetConnect Rescue Online Application, then email Tammy at

PetConnect Rescue: 10th Anniversary Birthday Bash!! - September 18, 2015

Used by Permission, PetConnect Rescue

ARF!! I paw to invite you to a celebration- a huge one, a great one!  A special party to celebrate 10 years of assisting dogs and cats to find "Forever Homes" and rescuing them from, sometimes, dire situations and other times owner surrenders and so on.

Dear to my pawing heart is PetConnect Rescue.  Someone somewhere gave money.  Someone somewhere gave time.  Someone somewhere had a passion for dogs. Someone somewhere had interest and curiosity.  These someones came together and found me on a list.  A list no one wants to be on. Period.  It's not the list I was on because I'm one hunk of a handsome dog!

When those someones came together from PetConnect Rescue they put into action along with some someones from Pilots 'n' Paws to take me and a pal off that list somewhere and bring me to the Washington D.C. area.

Next thing I knew the someone's took me to this funny looking someone in a white coat who poked, prodded and did a few things that I didn't like to well, but it was supposed to be good for me and the someone I might live with.

Now, I thank all the someones involved in this part of my life.  I have gone on to live with my humans who love me and I love them- goodness knows, these two someones needed someone like me in their lives!  My human says I came along just at the right time.

Maybe you could be one of the someones that helps someone to find the right dog or cat through your donation and support- your support can come through items to be used at Muddy Paws  for the animals rescued. Financial donations are welcome too.

PetConnect Rescue is celebrating 10 years of helping all these someones with a fundraiser. Join them in their celebration-  to RSVP, please visit, PetConnect Rescue Birthday Bash 2015RSPV must be received by September 10!

Dog Breeds: Maltese and Maltese Mixes

As you know, I barkingly paw, sharing information about the dog breeds so you can make an informative decision when you are looking to adopt.  The Maltese is a cool dog especially for those wanting a small dog or who live in an apartment or condo where having a big dog might not work very well!  WOOF!!

Friday's Friend: Dog Adoption, Operation Paws for Homes

My friends at Operation Paws for Homes have had a unique pawsome opportunity to meet dogs from the Turks and Caico Islands- an Island Pup- A Potcake.  Many of the dogs are wondering the streets looking for food. Through an arrangement with TCSPCA, who works with rescue organizations, Operation Paws for Homes is able to assist in helping these beautiful dogs find "Forever Homes!"

Please meet Potcake Miss P.!!

"Miss P."
(C) Operation Paws for Homes
A petite, 1 1/2 year old, 30 lb. sweetheart, Miss P. is loves all things 4-legged.  

Ruffingly, she can be a bit shy around humans, so extra TLC will be pawsome for her.  Miss P. just needs time and patience so she can learn who she can trust. The constant wagging tail is a positive sign of the lovin's she has to share!

My human met one of these Potcake dogs from the Turks and Caico Islands and just pawed about how great they are!  Of course, I reminded him of me- woof!

Interested in meeting Miss P.?  Please complete an application at Operation Paws for Homes Application,

Friday's Friend: Dog Adoption, Mid-Atlantic Great Dane Rescue League"

WOOF! WOOF!! uh, er, arf?  I'm having barkingly pawsome time with these huge dogs from the Mid-Atlantic Great Dane Rescue League- these dogs are so cool -you've got to meet one-

Meet Juno! He wants to meet you so he pawed a letter -
(C) Mid-Atlantic Great Dane Rescue League
"HERROO there!

I’m a 3 year old Great Dane named Juno and I’m some sight to see as I trot like a horse down the street boasting my brindle coloring. I definitely make heads turn! My Foster mom and dad always get people trying to pet me all the time and I’m more than happy to lean on them while they do so. I didn’t always use to be that way… when I first came to my foster home I was very underweight and scared of anyone I didn’t know that made fast movements towards me; I also was not very sure what to do with other dogs or how to play. Since then I gained back my weight and also have found that I love to play with other dogs and run as fast as I can as they try to chase me.

I have a few corks; I won’t dare wake you up in the morning…even when I have to go to the bathroom; but as soon as I see movement… GAME ON! I will nuzzle my nose under your arms and give you kisses to wake you up. If that doesn’t work I will start talking to you and slowly put all my weight on you till you start to get the idea. I will admit I like to get all the love in the house, if I see mom and dad kissing I may start talking so that all the attention back on me. My parents keep telling me I’m a “giant”… but I think they are trying to say “lap dog”, I love to snuggle and I may end up on top of you if you don’t notice my subtle  advances. My mom is with me all day almost every day but I really don’t think I would mind a fur sibling… not a puppy though; I’m still not sure what to do with those guys… why are they always so hyper?! It scares me! No, I would like someone that can run around and play chase with me! I can’t wait for my "Forever Home" to find me so I can start talking to, leaning on and trusting them for love."

Paws, licks and hugs- Juno
