This is an exciting weekend for adoption clinics as it marks the return of the Anchorage adoption clinics!
Teq's foster home writes:
"Teq is very healthy. I would not guess his age to be 11. He definitely has a lot of life left in him! No health issues that I am aware of. He has a beautiful coat, very nice teeth. We are working on getting his nails a bit shorter, but he lets us trim them, so it's not a problem. He is strong and doesn't appear to have any joint pain or stiffness. (Can scale a 6 foot fence!!) He is active. He enjoys walks and would probably even do some running. He is great for hiking."
Teq has a wonderful, easy going personality and lots of spunk. Teq would love to be a part of the family. He has spent much of his life in a pen or tied in the yard, but has some house experience. He is especially interested in people, enjoys car rides, sits politely, and even laid down when lured- smart and eager to please! Fun loving and loves to explore, he does pull a bit on leash, but is familiar with a head halter and does great at redirecting.
Teq is neutered, up to date on shots and is familiar with small dogs and cats.
Come meet us this Saturday!
Hendrix's human writes:
"I adopted Hendrix a little over five years ago from you guys. He turned out to be a big suprize. They estimated him to get up to 65 pounds full grown, he is now 118 pounds and stands eye level with me on his back legs! He is my go everywhere buddy! His favorite time of year is winter when the back country snowboarding starts. He carries a dog backpack with his survival beacon in it and off we go! I could'nt imagine ever getting another dog as cool as hendrix. He has been the absolute best friend a guy could ever want. "
You may have noticed that Alaska Dog and Puppy Rescue has not been as active in recent months. This is due, in part to resignation of several board members and dedicated volunteers. Since 2005, ADPR has grown in leaps and bounds; but with that growth comes the need for more volunteer time. ADPR has been blessed over the years with people willing to put their own lives on hold as they take on more and more ADPR responsibilities - until they finally need to step aside and make time for themselves. We are all volunteers and are grateful for all of the time and effort from each and every volunteer. Together ADPR volunteers have helped in saving over five thousand of Alaska's homeless dogs. Changes in volunteers have resulted in opportunities to do some regrouping and organization to ensure that we are not only meeting the needs of homeless dogs but also the needs of our volunteers. And oh boy, ADPR is on the move!
