Rescued Dogs Project – Nyx & Finn

Imagine, just for a minute, starting your young life in a shelter. Not any shelter, but a high-kill shelter where your chances of survival are slim. This is where Nyx’s story begins. As for Finn, she was born in the safety of foster care after her mom was rescued and brought to Wisconsin. For both puppies, their journey was just beginning. These are the next two dogs in my Rescued Dogs Project.

Rescued Dogs Project – Cara

I’ve met some incredible rescue dogs (and people) with stories that are often unbelievable. I love a happy ending though, which is why I’m highlighting these survivors. Sometimes the journey is long and complicated for these poor dogs, yet they persevere and come out smiling in the end. Their ability to live in the moment, leave the past behind them, and show their new families unconditional love, continues to inspire me. Cara, the Australian Cattle Dog is no exception. This mighty little wonder is next up in my Rescued Dogs Project.
