Arrival Story:
He was brought into the clinic where I work as a stray. He had demodectic mange, so I took him as a foster to get him better. Ernie loves to run and play with other dogs and with kids. He would love a home with a couple of kids and another dog to play with.

My incredible Journey!

I am now with my new dad! I've been on quite the adventure, let me tell you!

It all started after I didn't get adopted at the shelter. My foster mom, Emily, was uncertain of my future, she couldn't keep me forever, but she didn't want to give up on me. She almost had to make the decision to put me to sleep.

Then James stepped in. James and his wife, Melodie contacted Emily and said they would love to try and help me. That was in Feburary. The wonderful people at the forums of were all pulling for me. One member knew a transport coordinator, so she put Emily in touch with her.

That is when the ball started rolling! The coordinator set up the legs, and sent out e-mails. Eventually, all the legs were filled. All 13 of them!! They were filled just in the nick of time too. We almost didn't know if we'd have enough people.

I left out on my great adventure Saturday, March 12, 2005 when Emily drove me just outside of Alabaser, Alabama. I was picked up and taken to Cullman, Alabama and from there I went to Brentwood, Tennessee. From Brentwood, I went on to Sunnyhill, Tennessee to Oakland, Tennessee, where I spent the night. On Sunday morning, I traveled from Oakland to St. Louis, Missouri; from St. Louis to New Florence Missouri. From there I went to Lamine, Missouri then to Topeka Kansas where I was picked up by James!

From Topeka, I will travel all the way to Colorado where I will live. I am so happy to have been given a third chance at life! I feel great!

Thank you to everyone that helped out with this incredible task. Cyber hugs to all!

Emily and Ernie


I need a home!

Hi all, Ernie here.

I am in urgent need of a home. My foster mom is very upset at the thought of having to have me put to sleep. I really don't know what that means, but I don't like when she is upset.

She says she loves me, but can not keep me. Because if she keeps me, then she won't be able to help any other homeless doggies like I was. She doesn't think it would be fair to me, to her, or to the homeless doggies that don't even get a chance at life. I have had a great life here, but I am a bit naughty at times. It is only because there are so many other doggies here to play with that I get distracted easily! My foster mommy does not have the time to spend with all of us individually very often.

I love it here, but I want to know what it feels like to be a true pet! I want to have a home that I can call my own, have my own bed and my own human. Most of all, I don't want to see my foster mom upset because I don't have a home to call my own.

Please contact my foster mom if you may be interested in me. I am an adorable little guy. I may just look like an average medium sized mutt, but really, you've got to look at the inside as well. I'm something special!


I'm back...

Well, my adoption didn't work out. I just didn't get along with the existing dog. We had some jealousy issues going on. My new dad tried to keep me, but he was afraid I would hurt my doggie sister. I would do great in a home with no other dogs or with a dog or dogs that is bigger than me. I do great and love to play with all my foster doggie siblings. They are all bigger than me, though. Isn't there someone out there for me?
