Two Wonderful Years of Life – Analaigh

Happy Birthday my sweet girl!!


Officially, the vet calls her 2 on February 24th but Tuesday’s spot is for my girls and as a rescue we can be a little loosey goosey with her birth date so we’ll kick off the festivities today! Analaigh is my sweet girl who was found abandoned along with her litter and her cousin-litter at the young age of 3 weeks old in Philadelphia. Life could not have handed her better luck than finding her in a wonderful foster family that loved and cherished her until the day they let me take her home for good. You probably don’t know that on the day I was supposed to bring her home, she was helping fight crime in Philadelphia (for her story go here: Analaigh is the love of my life and brings me constant joy (and new pillows as mine are always needing to be replaced). Life without her is unimaginable. 

For your viewing pleasure: a peek into our lives over the past 2 years

Meet Roxy!! (A15449974)


1-2 years old

Philly ACCT says:  Roxy is a 1-2 year old terrier mix who was surrendered for adoption because her owners could no longer care for her. Roxy is a very loving, affectionate girl who loves to be near you. She appears to be housetrained. Roxy showed no interest in cats and did well with the dogs she met. She met a very hyper dog and it was too much for her. Roxy would love a friend in her new home to have the same energy levels as her. Roxy had no issues with her food test and her tail didn’t stop wagging the whole time we spend with her. She is an overall happy dog who would love nothing more than a soft bed to lay in each night with you by her side.
