Adopt a Shelter Dog

From the Dogster Community...
Dogster wishes big congratulations to Bellhounds Scrawny Tawny Lion (aka Bruiser) for becoming the 1st Thai Ridgeback in America to become a Service Dog. His human trained him for several years and he has finally made the grade. Here's what she had to say:
I've been working with Bruiser for the past three years, getting him ready to be my partner while I'm out in the real world. He does many things to help me through out my daily activities. He helps me up steps, up hills and helps me get off of furniture when my knee freezes. He also helps me up when I fall by coming next to me, and standing still allowing me to get back on my feet. He also carries several items in his vest making my life a little easier. He carries my wallet, checkbook and any other items I may need. He's always eager to work, and always happy. Bruiser was a rescue from a kill shelter, I saved him just 12 hours before he was due to be euthanized. He has clearly saved my life in return.

We always want to hear how Dogster has changed your life! Did you adopt or rescue via our site? Have you gotten involved in any new causes with the Dogster community? Keep on sending those stories to Randi at Dogster dot com!

Got Stickers?

So, we are still giving away free stickers to the best dog-gone dog community in the whole woofy world Send a Self Addressed Stamped Envelope to: Dogster HQ, Attn: Dogster Stickers, 555 De Haro Street #350, San Francisco, CA 94107 and we'll woof one right back to you! We won't stop until everyone has one :)

May all animals be happy and safe,
Ted, John, Steven & Dogster HQ
