In loving memory

Walter 1652

Doberman Mix | Male | Large (50-90 lbs)

Walter 1652

Roscoe’s dad writes in his memory:

It is with the heaviest of hearts that I tell you Roscoe (aka Walter, #1652) has left our world. The 2 years and 9 months that he was with me were among the most joyful of my life. He decided very early on that I was the person for him and he quickly became the most loyal companion I could have ever hoped for. He was the happiest, most engaging dog I have ever known and he was incredibly social. Everywhere we went, …

Shepherd mix | Male | Medium (20-50 lbs)

Spike 1863

We wanted you to know we said goodbye to our sweet boy a couple of weeks ago. He was the toughest dog we’ve ever known and he tried to tough his way through old age (16!), arthritis and lymphoma but even Spikey couldn’t make that happen. He was also the sweetest dog we’ve ever known and we feel very fortunate that he graced our lives for 2 years. Spike taught us a lot about perseverance and unconditional love, immensely enjoying food and accepting any and all dog and human friends. Thank you to the kind person at the …

Delilah 2700

Delilah lived a wonderful life with her adoptive family — she was incredibly lucky to have so much love at the end of her days. Below is a remembrance from her family:

Delilah, I will miss your kisses, the way you would communicate with grunts, & how your lil cinnamon bun of a tail would wiggle when I walk through the door or say your name….I will even miss your snores that kept me up so many nights. I love …

Ace 2679

Shih Tzu mix | Male | Small (6-20 lbs)

Ace 2679

Teddy (AKA Ace) was a Hearing Service Dog for 14 years! He was responsible to a deaf person to relieve their fears! Teddy’s job involved alerting the person to the phone ringing, the door bell, the fire and smoke alarm and signaling which device! Teddy never knew the joy of jumping in a humans lap, chasing a ball, giving big juicy doggy kisses. His entire life involved serving a human. In retirement he had no home to go to and didn’t have the charms of a family pet! I heard his story and couldn’t bare the …

Polly 2824

Spaniel Mix | Female | Small (6-20 lbs)

Polly 2824

Sweet little Polly has crossed over the rainbow bridge. She had a wonderful second chance in her Muttville home. Her family sent us these words in remembrance:

It breaks my heart to write this, but we let Polly (aka Mollie) go last Monday. She was our tiny terror, ruling the house, always in search of food and water, biting anything that looked remotely edible (feet, other dogs, clothes, etc.) When she first came to us, she had very little energy, but after a …

Beowolf 3159

Shepherd / Wolfhound mix | Male | Large (50-90 lbs)

Beowolf 3159

Today we said goodbye to an angel, though Beowolf only came to Muttville earlier this week, he touched many hearts with his soulful and gentle countenance. A big dog with a huge spirit. We noticed when he arrived that his breathing was shallow and he seemed pretty tired and super skinny, so our vets ran many tests and while we waited for the results, he wolfed down lots of good food, leaned in for many hugs and gentle coos from all of us. It wasn’t the news we had hoped for, Beo had cancer and his lungs were filled …

Dearest Sherri and Laurie,

It is with great sadness that I write to tell you that my beautiful Blossom died early this afternoon in my arms. She had been sick for about 2 weeks and then deteriorated rapidly last week . I cannot tell you what joy she brought to my house. Everyone who met her, loved her. I like to think the past year was happy for her and made up for all the suffering she experienced in the …

Boston Terrier Mix | Female | Medium (20-50 lbs)

Winifred 2866

Volunteer Craig wrote this beautiful tribute to our sweet Winifred.

Winifred was a lovely girl. She stayed here at Muttville for four months, her big heart and sweet soul made her a favorite dog amongst staff and volunteers. A 14 year old stray from Martinez, this Lab/Boston Terrier/Bat (?) mix, was sweet, playful, loved to chase a ball and LOVED riding in the car. Unfortunately, her body was just all worn …
