Wee Willie

Wee Willie

We adopted Wee Willie in 12/2016, via a Muttville partner up in Nevada County; and, are so incredibly thankful! It had been over 5 years since our two beloved dachshunds passed; and, we had both recently retired. Life was “change­ mode” for us. And then we discovered Muttville! In came Wee Willie…This lil’ guy is a 14 yo, 6 lb longhaired Chihuahua…. BUT, Willie has the biggest personality. His Foster Mom described him as “pleasantly independent”. Heck, we didn’t know what that meant. We soon discovered. You would never guess his age. Willie is full of spunk and personality. Loves walks, meeting new people and their pups. We think he may have a bit of Boarder Collie in his bloodline, because he is happiest when we are all together in the same room! This pup is a love, and will lick your face for hours! He’s great at the groomers, and is a real flirt with new people. I could go on and on about him. Bottom line, we are so, so thankful our Wee Willie has come home to us; and, are soooo thankful for Muttville!

XOXOXO ~ Frank, Russ, and Wee Willie, Guerneville CA.

Nava

Nava

Nava joined our family 2 and a half years ago. She had arrived at Muttville from Vafa Animal Shelter in Iran and as far as we know she had never lived in a home before we adopted her.

Everything was new for her, but she adapted incredibly easily. She LOVES being petted (and will give you a nudge if you stop), as well as curling up on her favorite carpet for a nap and laying right in the middle of the kitchen as I cook dinner each night :)

She is an absolute sweetheart and a soulmate to our rescue golden, Buddy.

We are so lucky to have Nava in our lives…she is a very gentle soul and we love her so much!

Rizzo

Rizzo

I wanted to give a happy update about Rizzo. She has settled in very well. She is a sweet, happy, energetic little girl. She is loving life in Marin where she goes for long walks and hikes. She also loves snuggling on the couch and in bed, where she sometimes makes her way under the covers. She has a new dinosaur squeaky toy that she enjoys as well. She has brought so much joy to our house. Our last Muttville dog, JoJo (AKA Reese) passed away in September, and we were devastated. It is wonderful having another sweet, silly, and loving doggie in our home. Thank you, Muttville, for saving her!

Champ

Champ

Champ came to Muttville from Solano County as part of a group of dogs being evacuated from the Atlas Fire disaster. He was adopted by Star Hu, the reporter who fell in love with him after interviewing Muttville on her radio show. Now Champ lives the life of a real champ, getting spoiled by his new parents and human siblings. His loves to sniff at everything and every dog in the neighborhood but his most favorite pastime is to work with his mommy at her radio station and nap on her lap.

Betsy the Boston Terrier (In Memoriam)

Betsy the Boston Terrier (In Memoriam)

Betsy was a real joy to everyone who met her. She brought us so much happiness.

She loved walking along the dunes to the beach and she certainly loved eating. She was very playful when she knew it was time to eat and we loved being playful with her because she would play with us too.

When I first met Betsy I knew she was meant for me and I had to take her home. I miss her every day and she brought us so much happiness.

Sasha (aka Greta)

Sasha (aka Greta)

We adopted Sasha (aka Greta) this past June. I was driving home from work and heard a radio interview with the founder of Muttville, got home, went online, saw Sasha and we fell in love and week later she was at our home. What a beautiful, sweet girl she is. So happy we have her in our lives. She loves her buddy Caspian and they enjoy walks on the beach together. Every morning she can’t wait to hit the coffee shop with Tyler and Caspian and get so much attention. We have never adopted a senior dog before and now, we can’t imagine our world without her. She was very under weight but has put on about 10 lbs and looks and feels good. Thanks Muttville for all you do.

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
