Alumni Update: Tanuki

Tanuki is doing very well with us and our other dog.  He has a very likable personality and is coming along on house breaking (almost there!).  I take him for a long walk almost every day, which we both enjoy.  He is eating well (understatement!) and is smiling more and more each day it seems. Adopting him was and continues to be a great thing in our family life.

How they knew he was “the one:” We had a lab-pit mix , who looked very much like Tanuki.  That was what made the attraction, and once we met him it sealed the deal. He seems to be very ‘trainable’; when he does things which we want him to do, he gets a piece of cheese….  I can almost sense a feeling of pride and well being in him as he is learning to behave himself!

Thank you so much-


Alumni Update: Sam

We adopted Sam (who was then known as Chip) in February! He has become so special to our family and we absolutely adore him!  He LOVES attention and enjoys snuggling everywhere (couch, bed, floor, etc)!

When he first came to us he had no idea how to play with a toy but now he is obsessed with playing! He especially loves chasing around his baseball after swatting it away himself. Thank you for what you do, DE Humane!!

Alumni Update: Inky

I adopted Inky in January and he’s doing great! My experience with DHA has been so memorable. Two weeks prior when I volunteered with my work I did not expect to fall in love-but fall in love I did! I knew I needed to take Inky home. He has done great in his new home and has the most loving personality. Every day when I come home from work I’m greeted at the door by him and every night he sleeps in bed with my 3 year old daughter. He’s definitely the king of the castle and very spoiled. He’s in great health and we can’t wait to spend many years to come with our perfect boy. I just wanted to say thanks again!


Alumni Update: Khloe

I wanted to give a VERY HAPPY update regarding Khloe- formally known as Angel, whom my daughter and I adopted on January 13, 2010. She has been the best dog ever! Absolutely everything we were looking for. Khloe still loves to snuggle with us in bed or on the couch, in our laps. She has never needed to be on a leash (unless it’s required depending on where we are at), she walks right beside me and doesn’t stray far from my legs! She was estimated to be about 4 or 5 years old when we adopted her so now she is about 10 years old and still very active and happy!
And of course, EXTREMELY LOVED!!!

Thank you!
