LOUIE

AKA SUPREME


I'm sure everyone has been wondering what happened to Supreme. Well Supreme has a new name (Louie) and a new home. Louie's family is amazing and that is an understatement.They are very dog savvy and have lots of patience. Louie has a huge fenced in yard to run in and his own pool.

Louie would like to thank Jeff Foss at the Lamoille Kennels for the wonderful care he was given for almost 12 months and Chad Parker and the staff at Dogs Day Out for teaching him the skills to be successful in his new home and allowing him to be a dog and have fun. Louie found his love of water there.

Thank you to Marco, the Lamoille Kennels cat who taught Louie not to be afraid of felines and forced him to endure a lot of cat love. Marco the cat's hard work paid off as Louie now lives with 3 cats.

Other thank yous go out to Dean Mercier for taking me out for walks even though I did a small makeover on his cell phone and Donna Peake for walking me on Saturdays so I got an extra day of attention and fun.

A big thank you to Emily Touchette for being my biggest advocate from the beginning and for all the fun every Sunday in the yard with my Jolly Balls. I have a few of them now thanks to a very special family in Waterbury who made sure I had plenty of toys to keep me busy while waiting for my forever home and family.
A huge thank you to my new family who adopted me. They are my angels and like is so good now!!!

Love, Louie aka (Supreme)



IZZY

​All of my life I've had cats and dogs and each one have held a special place in my heart. My partner passed away suddenly last December. It was a blow emotionally and I was a wreck for months. The opportunity to foster a dog was presented to me just at the right time. I knew I wasn't ready to care for a high energy dog requiring a lot of training, walks, prone to accidents that need cleaning up, a chewer etc. Amy at Justice For Dogs thought Izzy would be a perfect companion for me and she was right. Izzy, apparently had been a crate dog and for her 5 or 6 years she was a puppy breeder and kept caged. Her teeth are worn down to the gums from chewing on we don't know what, rocks, bones, cage bars? Luckily she was rescued, found sanctuary in a kennel, actually happy and loved there but not a real home. At first, Izzy slept on her comfortable new bed most of the time and had to be coaxed up to pee, eat etc. She still does a lot of that but loves to be outdoors with me. She'll take a swim in the pond on her own accord, bark a bit when some comes, chase tennis balls and bring them back. She doesn't mind my granddaughter crawling on her. Mainly I know she's happy just being part of the family and being loved. I'm happy too!All of my life I've had cats and dogs and each one have held a special place in my heart.

SCOUT


"Two years ago Wonder-dog (aka Scout) joined our family. I just wanted to say thank you and let you know

what an incredible addition he has been. He is an absolutely perfect fit for us. He's busy, athletic, and has

a great sense of humor. We couldn't love him more. He is at the top of Mount Moosilauke,

doing what he loves best - trail running."   Lisa Whitney
