Arrival Story:
The mean old lady that had my placed an ad in the Denton Record Chronicle for "an old and ugly dog that must be gone today or will be taken to the vet to be euthanized". Then my new Mommy came and rescued me ! She had to pay the woman $100 for my collar and vet records (which Mom later found out were false papers). Then Mommy took me to the vet the same day where I was treated for fleas, ticks, ear mites, and given all of my shots.

My name is Sadie Jo. My first owners were very nice and I lived with them for six years.I had a mom and two human girls that were my life. My mom was diagnosed with lung cancer which was really scary. In may of 07 their were a lot of floods in Gainesville, TX where we lived. Mom and our girls got trapped in the house and I did my best to get them out. I managed to get Mom and our girls out of the house and ontop the roof. We were seen on CNN on-top of the house. When the people came to rescue Mom and our girls I was left behind. Before mom could rescue me she passed away. I then went to live with my moms sister who didn't treat me so well. I was kept outside 24/7 with no shelter at all. I was chained up all the time on a 5ft leash that was wrapped around a porch post 3 times. I had very little food and many times I went a few days without water. I guess the lady got tired of me being in her yard so she put an ad in the newspaper that read "free to good home, an old an ugly female BC- she has no manners but has shots and is spayed - get her today or i will put her to sleep". So that's how I met my new mom. She read the ad and rushed right over. She says it was love at first sight. Mommy says I am beautiful and not ugly. My hair was very matted and I was covered in fleas. I only weighed 13 pounds almost all of my teeth are missing. And my legs were so weak from being on the chain that I could barely walk. Mom has been very good to me. She got me this medicine called osteo-guard so now my bones feel a lot better, and I can even run again. I have to eat puppy food since I was so malnourished. For a while after Mom adopted me, I could only eat canned food. Well, now I am 32 pounds "and Dad still thinks I look skinny'. I live everyday like I'm a queen. Even though my past was so hard, I still show my mom everyday how thankful I am that she rescued me. I am very obedient now, and it only took mom a week to teach me the basics - she says I'm the smartest girl she's ever known. I will do anything for my new family, even tolerate the puppy biting my ankles all the time. I never smiled when mom first adopted me, but now that is all I do. Mom has even started calling me "happy" and "smiley". It's great to be adopted. If it wasn't for the kindness in my moms heart I probably wouldn't be living right now. So to all you adopted pups out there - please be sure to give your new parentes the best in you. And to all the ones awaiting adoption - we keep you in our prayers everyday. *** We lost Sadie November 11th 2009. I miss her more than words could ever say. She was my heart. I know that she is in a better place now and free from pain - and for that I am grateful. Selfishly, I wish I could have her back.

Sadie Jo Chronicles

Adoption means a lot to my family and I. It has brought us through many tough times, gave us the strength to help so many wonderful pets. We run an in home rescue and adopt out around 60 dogs a year to wonderful loving homes.
The story I want to sure is the one of how Sadie Jo adopted me, at least that is the way I see it.

It all started January 26th 2008.
Shortly after having a miscarriage and losing my marriage I was feeling alone, depressed, like I didn't want to go on. I decided to look for a companion to share my days with. I spent hours searching in shelters, online, and through papers. Then one day while looking through our local paper, the Denton Record Chronicle I found your ad.
I called right away then drove the hour trip to get you, when I got there my heart ached for you. You had a metal chain wrapped around your neck, a very short chain tied you on a concrete slab beneath the porch. Your hair was matted, you were so very skinny, no food, no water, no shelter, laying on the concrete freezing. It made me angry, sad and angry.
I gave the woman her money put you in my car and we headed home. You laid your head in my lap and wagged your tail, as if to say "thank you".
Then our journey began.
It took months to get you better, but you were a fighter. One day at your vet appointment, we ran into your Dad in the lobby. He fell in love with you and came every day to help us. That's how I got my marriage back. You made us a family again.
After you got better we went on the road with your Dad, traveling the states. You loved riding in that red freightliner.
You would sit in my lap and stare out the windows, bark at the cars trying to herd them. So many times I would sit in the floor so you could sleep in the seat. So funny seeing Dad climb up the bunk so you could sleep with me.
Our bond grew so deep.
You were my heart dog - still are.
We walked so many miles together, over 23 states. Then your arthritis started to get bad, we took you home where I stayed with you, and a new chapter in our journey began.
Neither of us liked being home, but we made the best of it. Our walks in the pasture, watching the sunsets out there. Keeping the nieces and nephews - oh how you adored them.
Every time I see a bubble I think of you and smile,you loved them so.
Our last summer was so amazing, and then with the end of it came all of your pain. The colder it got, the worse you became. We tried everything we could to help you, but it just wasn't enough.
November 12th 2009, our journey ended.
We sat together and watched the sunrise, your head placed on my lap, your tail slowly wagging as you drew your final breaths. You licked my hand, letting me know it was ok, and then you went on your next journey, to the bridge.
I sat there with you for hours, holding you.
23 months we were together, I know it's selfish but I wish it had of been longer.
We buried you out in the pasture, in the spot where we would watch the sunset every evening.
The kids still read to you, we all miss you so much.
I made Dad sell the truck, I just couldn't look at it anymore.

It was adoption that taught me to love, to trust, to live. Adoption that brought us together.
Without adoption the best 23 months of my life would never have happened.
I wouldn't have our memories to cherish, I wouldn't have my husband, or my daughter.
To the common eye, our story was just me saving you, but we saved each other.
I will never lose our memories or the happiness you brought me. Thank you for adopting me. I love you yesterday, today, and always, sweet Sadie Jo.

You are balanced, orderly, and organized. You like your ducks in a row.
You are powerful and competent, especially in the workplace.
People can see you as stubborn and headstrong. You definitely have a dominant personality.

You tend to be pretty tightly wound. It's easy to get you excited... which can be a good or bad thing.
You have a lot of enthusiasm, but it fades rather quickly. You don't stick with any one thing for very long.
You have the drive to accomplish a lot in a short amount of time. Your biggest problem is making sure you finish the projects you start.

You are friendly, charming, and warm. You get along with almost everyone.
You work hard not to rock the boat. Your easy going attitude brings people together.
At times, you can be a little flaky and irresponsible. But for the important things, you pull it together.
