Hazel Grace is an 8 year old female Dachshund/terrier mix. When TAF first took Hazel Grace in, she was in critical condition after had being set on fire. After months of months of medical care to repair her skin and treat for heartworm, Hazel Grace made a full recovery. Though she may be little, don’t let that fool you. This little girl can hold her own with any little or big out there! She is smart as a whip, a little diva and plays an integral part in encouraging good behavior during playdates. Teaching proper social skills is invaluable when preparing a homeless pup for adoption. Hazel Grace’s confidence makes her a great role model for all of the littles and we adore her.
Pint-sized Bentley is our gentlest therapy dog who never stops trying to earn the trust of the most forlorn and cautious homeless pups. Bentley has saved more homeless dogs lives than any of our therapy dogs combined. If a shelter has a little dog that they believe to be “unadoptable” due to temperament, Bentley is often brought in. Bentley’s submissive temperament and eagerness to make a new friend has won over some of the most emotionally traumatized dogs coming from the pound. Once a rescue sees that an “unadoptable” dog has made friends with Bentley, it is a safe bet that the pup would follow suit in a home with a similar dog. Thus... giving them a chance at a happily ever after.
Eeyore is our 2 year old gentle giant. Weighing in at 180lbs and a length of 6 feet, Eeyore is a chilled out Great Dane that the tiniest homeless dogs in our program gravitate to. His calm nature and size makes them feel safe and protected. These homeless littles usually like to curl up next to him or climb on him like a mountain goat. Eeyore is so tolerant and has the patience of a saint.
