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

"Lola and Sammy"
(C) Operation Paws for Homes
My friends at Operation Paws for Homes have been really busy lately and I am barkingly pawed to share the news of their work!!

Giving dogs a second chance is what rescues do- they assist dogs in getting the care they need, in finding a good human to love on them- like my human does me, right dad?i -and a "Forever Home" to spend their lives!

Lola and Sammy have had a bit of a rough start in life.  They were dropped at a shelter when they were only about 8 weeks old.  Pawingly, they had little chance of adoption and survival due to a skin condition- one that is easily treatable!  arf??

Operation Paws for Homes stepped in and are they ever glad they did- WOOF!!! AND I am too!!  

Lola who is around 5 months old and 26 lbs., is a great pup!  She is full of life and love and always up for an adventure!!  ARF!!!   She's figured out how to use stairs and loves to be the first to venture outside and explore.

Barks, one of the fun things about Lola is she loves to herd things.  She will collect stuff from around the house and put them into piles- so if you can't find something- it may be there!  Paws to you Lola!

And, she just loves to be with her human and cuddle!  Very content to be loving on you!

Now Sammy, is about 5 month old, 36 pounds.  She is pawcellent loveable girl who very smart and a quick learner. 

Sammy would do great in a home with other dogs, or children that she could run and play with!  She and her sister Lola who she is fostered with are best buds and love to play together.

The skin condition?  WOOF-  it's Demodex mange which is not contagious.  According to Operation Paws for Homes and their vets,  "They have dogs all the time in the rescue that are being treated for it and none of them has ever been contagious. Our vets have all told us the same thing, sarcoptic mange is the one that is contagious."

For further reading, here is an article from VCA Animal Hospital, mange-demodectic-in-dogs.  My human saw them last week at a photo shoot and could not believe how great they looked!  And, how happy they were!
