Bitsy

Bitsy

Remember Bitsy and I? We adopted each other in January of 2017. She has truly been a blessing and wonderful addition to my little family. It took about a week for her to come out of a very sad state, but is now so happy and loving. She’s still feisty (you may recall) every now and then, but who isn’t? She barks at my Shiba, Kobi, when he gets too close, but they both sleep on the bed with me. I got her at 3.9 lbs and 2 months ago at the vet she was 4.5 lbs. I think she may be a bit more as she loves to eat! She has become quite playful and loves to be rubbed on her head and chest. I am so thankful Rosanne Massimino, who adopted Coco got me to go with her to Muttville that rainy day in January. Thanks for all the wonderful work you all do at Muttville!!!

With Love, Maria

Lucy aka Luci (In Memoriam)

Lucy aka Luci (In Memoriam)

Lucy was my first dog; her adoption was the very first thing my wife and I did when we moved into a house with a yard. I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect dog, a sentiment I’m sure all Muttville parents know. Lucy was loving, friendly, loyal, and in all ways the best dog I’ve ever known. She lived for 8 years with us and I am grateful for every day. She loved walks, being a 40 lb lap dog, and never leaving her mom’s side. We helped her across the rainbow bridge July 11th, a decision that we agonized over but in the end was the last thing we were able to do for a dog that gave us so much. There isn’t a day that I don’t think of her. Thank you so much to Sherri and all the Muttville staff who help save older dogs.

Evie #1440

Evie #1440

I am Linda, adopted Gigdet # 269, sadly passed away just before her 18th birthday last summer. She is pictured in the red dress in the attached picture. The other picture of Gidget was on her 17th birthday…blind and deaf…she was out getting some sun!! Today is Evie’s 12th birthday. She is #1440. I adopted her 4 years ago. She is doing very well, despite her allergies and neurological troubles!! Her hearing is not so good either, but I can get her attention if I whistle for her. I am still hoping to find a special friend for Evie. She is very mellow and gets along with all dogs and people!!

Thank you for all you do to rescue these special dogs!! I know there will be one that needs to find a home with Evie and me!! Take care, I applaud you all for the work that you do to rescue these special seniors!!

Oski

Oski

When we met him at Muttville back in 2010, his name was Oscar Wilde (#411), and we have always called him Oski.

When we came to Muttville, we did not think we were ready to give a dog a forever home, as we were still grieving for two wonderful dogs we had lost to old age the preceding year. But when Sherri introduced us to the Muttville mutts, Oski jumped into my lap and wouldn’t leave – or let any other dog too close. We knew he had chosen us to be his pack. We took him home the day the Oscars are given at the Academy Awards, so we celebrate that day each year as Oskiday.

We have celebrated seven Oskidays since then, and are hoping for an eighth in the spring. There has not been a single day in all these years that we have not felt blessed by his presence in our lives. When we first got him he was young by Muttville standards – eight years old – and full of energy. He would leap around our bedroom pouncing on imaginary rats, then throw himself on his back with all four legs waving joyfully in the air – we called that the Oskidance. We took him everywhere with us, we still do, he is a great little traveler who wins friends and admirers wherever he goes.

Now Oski has really grown old – his next Oskiday we will call his 16th birthday – and now he pretty much just snuggles and rests. No more imaginary rats, and only the briefest of walks…but that’s OK, we love to just snuggle him too.

Thank you Muttville for all that you do for the senior mutts, and of course we can’t thank you enough for bringing the joy of being Oski’s people into our lives, it has been a wonderful ride with him alongside us.

With gratitude,

Rochelle

Fred

Fred

Fred has been with us since August 25, 2016, and he has given us nothing but joy everyday since then.

He has a whole bunch of different facial expressions-from side-eye, to squinty, to mean mug, but his smile takes the cake and he’s one of the most loving little beings ever no matter WHAT face he’s giving you!

​He gets along great with our other dogs and he has a PhD in being snuggly. He loves to nestle right in between us when we go to bed, then when he’s SURE that we’ve fallen asleep, he goes and sleeps in his crate. Since we got him, we’ve moved from San Francisco to Alameda. Boy does he love going to the Alameda dog park! There are so many different friends to make-bulldogs, pit bulls, other terriers, poodles, bichons, frenchies, you name it! Not to mention ALL the squirrels and the geese to chase! What a great life!

We live in a super pet friendly apartment complex and Fred won Pet of the Month for the month of August! He got a $25 gift card to buy all his favorite T-R-E-A-T-S from PetSmart!!

Everyday we love him more and couldn’t be more grateful to Muttville!

Fred wishes all of his friends at Muttville good luck in finding their FUR-ever homes, too!

April

April

April has filled my heart with love and laughter since the moment I met her in May. We are attached at the hip / she is my little sidekick. She has a permanent spot in the bed, car, office, and most importantly, my heart. She is a member of the family and everyone loves doting on her and making sure her senior years are filled with all the things she loves. Thank you for enriching dog’s and people’s lives, one mutt at a time!

Lenny

Lenny

I just wanted to let all of you at Muttville know how well Lenny is doing. He is very comfortable at home and is getting along with the whole family – cat included! He loves coming to work with me at the doggie daycare and has already made friends. Such a happy boy!

His absolute delight is when he figured out how to squeak his favorite toy. It was so heart warming and joyful. He is always excited to go on walks and adventures. This weekend we are at my cousin’s vacation house in Tahoe and Lenny is loving the mountain air. He starts with one of the best trainers in the East Bay.

Thank you for saving him and helping him find his way to us! We couldn’t be more grateful!

Warmest Wags,

Jennifer

Otis #4394

Otis #4394

I wanted to share a few recent photos of Otis (#4394) and tell you how much I have been enjoying my new friend. He is much more of an athlete than we imagined. No signs of arthritis as we originally thought. This pup hikes 6 miles up in the mountains with me and still wants to chase balls when we get home. He wags his tail at every human we meet and hogs the bed at night. He loves to catch balls in the backyard and is quite the athlete in leaping into the air or diving after them, or when hiking, into creeks. He likes water so much we may try some paddle boarding (I bought him a doggie life jacket!) He’s went camping this summer and charms his way into the sleeping bag. He has been a delight and I’m so glad he came to live with me.

Thank you for helping older dogs. You do good work and I am happy to be a part of it!

Sabina and Marlowe

Sabina and Marlowe

My family adopted these two wonderful pups, Sabina and Marlowe, a few years ago, if my memory is correct it was October 2015.

I just wanted to send some updated pics on how wonderful these old girls are doing and how Muttville has a truly special place in our family’s heart.

Thank you for everything you guys do!

Lil Bud (formerly Maude)

Lil Bud (formerly Maude)

September 6 was our little Lily Bud’s (formerly Maude) birthday. She didn’t come with a birthday so we decided that we would use her adoption date which was September 6th of 2016.

Our first rescue, she brings so much joy and love to our home. As you can see, she is a Daddy’s girl. Although she is blind (retinal disease) she knows her way around the house and backyard.

Her favorite pastimes are eating, napping and wrestling with her stuffed animals. Thank you Muttville for this precious little angel!
