The Culprit of the kale soup caper hahaha, and she isn't Portuguese!  Gracie is a great dog in every sense of the word, she has brought much joy to our family.  I can't get home fast enough from work to see her and Abby.  Each day is a new adventure, discovering more about her and her breed.  They are wonderful companions, loyal ,loving and a great defender of their families.  It's really a crime that they are treated so badly!!!!!  My family can't  thank you enough for all your efforts and for rescuing all pets!!  In the future, if there is any way my family can help in your rescue missions please call on us.  Much respect and admiration.

Happy Ending for Henry (AKA  Chico Bandito)

I adopted Henry (previously Chico Bandito) on September 27, 2008 from Skyller’s.  I was looking to adopt a small dog and
actually noticed Snickers, a small brown Chihuahua, on Skyller’s website, which is what led me to Skyller’s. 
 I filled out the application and went to see the dog on Saturday afternoon.  What a place….they are so caring and have a huge
backyard for the animals to run and play. 

Snickers was VERY rambunctious and very friendly.  He was only 1 ½ years old.  When I told Delia that I would be
 bringing the dog to a nursing home 5 nights a week, I was introduced to another Chihuahua named Chico Bandito. 
He was so scared.  He was shaking, but he just sat on my lap and didn’t move.  I knew right then and there that he was
the PERFECT dog for me.  I was told that he had been neglected before he came to the shelter so I knew he would need lots of loving,
which he would have gotten…neglected or not.  I
took him with me that day.

I had to give him a name that I wanted…I name my animals after movie stars.  I also have 4 cats at home. 
I decided to name him Henry, after a movie that Harrison Ford was in. 

I brought Henry to the nursing home that same night.  He was VERY afraid of everyone, so he stuck close by me all night. 
Everyone there loves him.  He would not go near anyone at first.  He would run away from everyone, but now, 6 months later,
he lets only a few people there pat him and give him treats and will get fairly close to many others to sniff them.  He now
knows the nursing home like the back of his paw.  He knows where the lunch room is, which he visits often looking for handouts….
which he gets lots of.  He also knows which room we go to each night.  He is sometimes for the first one there, but usually
he makes pit-stops in the lunch room and day room first to check out the food situation. 
  Everyone knows and loves him there. 
He puts a smile on everyone’s face. 

I absolutely adore Henry.  He sleeps with me every night……usually under the covers.  He doesn’t really pay attention to the cats. 
Maybe in time he will start to play with them, but right now he just likes to lay with me.  He is already very protective of me. 

I can’t wait till the summer to see him swim.  I am told he likes to swim and I have a pool in my backyard. 
He loves to be outside, but not in the winter.  He would just go and do what he had to and run right back in the house or nursing home. 
Now, in March 2009, he is spending more time outside on the nicer days.

I take pictures of him all the time, mostly at the nursing home…he loves to snuggle under the covers on pillows or between pillows. 



Not only is Henry a great family member but, a therapy dog for the people at the nursing home that he visits everyday!!




Happy Ending for Rozi (AKA Zoey)



Marlo Update




I've got a new home,. I've got a new home!!! I've Been Adopted !!
Marlo has been adopted!!


Hey!!!!,... I'm MARLO the 1 yr old lab mix
 I'm beautiful with the personality to match
.  I love to play with all my friends over here. I'm learning what those fuzzy creatures called cats are too! They are alright, but funny looking. I do have a boyfriend named BRANDO but, we are just talking, nothing serious. He is pretty cute and plays well with me. I'd love if he's adopted with me but you know what they say,... Plenty of fish in the sea!!!,.... LoL I love walks and do great on a leash. I am crate trained and do all my duties outside. Car rides are fun, and relaxing on the couch with the a/c is even better. My old owner tossed me out of their car while it was moving and when I fell out I hurt my bum and scraped my tail too!! "OUCH" What a bunch of jerks that they were. Thank god that I got out of that relationship!  Now I'm looking for a good mom or dad or both, to take good care of me, love me, treat me like I should be treated. By the way, my bum and tail are ok. I do have a small scar on my bum but, my fur is growing in nicely. Pretty soon you won't even notice that it was there. I am the sweetest lab that you have ever met, and when meet me you will fall in love with me! Email my mom at
Hppydogs@verizon.net or call her directly at (508) 923-1115 leave your name and number(s) and she will get back to you asap P.S. HURRY UP!!!

Jazz (AKA Rita) Update



As a family we started looking to adopt a dog.  We searched a number of places and websites when we stumbled across www.adoptapet.com ,  which linked us to Skyllers Dog and Cat Rescue.  There were many dogs to choose from. 
We made an appointment and went to visit.  While at the rescue, we were introduced to a number of dogs. 
As soon as we saw "Rita" now Jazz, We knew immediately that we had found our dog. 
The kids loved her as well as my husband and myself.


This was such a positive experience.  Delia was so helpful.  She helped us find the best fit for our family. 
She offered us advice on selecting the best dog for us.  We also appreciated her helpfulness
with any questions we had after we adopted Jazz.


Here we are 2 months later and could not be happier!  Jazz IS a part of our family.  She is so well behaved. 
She loves to sleep in her bed or on the couches, which we don't mind. 
She loves to go for walks around the pond and she loves car rides.  She is so social. 
Where ever we are, Jazz is always nearby.  We just Love her soooo Much!!  Now our family is complete.

Thank you to Skyller's Rescue for finding the best dog for us!!

Tyco Update
Just got your Christmas card & wanted to update you with some new photos of Tyco, his sister Cara & Max.  Cara is also an italian greyhound chihuahua mix who we found through the East Coat Italian Greyhound Rescue organization last year.  She came from a hoarding situation in Wisconsin and has helped us through a very difficult time - the passing of our very much loved minpin Max.  After months of failing health, and with the guidance & assistance of our vet Jenny Maas, he died in my arms at home with his family around him.
Again, thank you so much for bringing Tyco into our family.  He is truly a blessing.
with much love,
Barbara, Bob, Tyco & Cara Velardi

Hi.  I'm getting pretty comfortable in my forever home.  Dad is my all time favorite, with Mom a close second. 
My brother Max & I are getting along great.  Finally met Jenn (my big sister who's away at college & hates having  her picture taken)
and Loren (my other big sister who's married with a husband named Brandon, a little girl named Haley & a
shitzu named Sancho).  Don't know who loves me more, but when Loren went home today, she tried to smuggle me out in her tote bag.
Thanks so much for everything you did for me.  LOVE YOU!!!

Toby AkA Timmie Update

Hello Friends,
We thought you would like some new pictures of TOBY -
We adopted him from you as Timmy in Nov 2008.  But our good friend Lynnie (in the first picture) has a medical assist therapy alert dog named
Timmy (shown in the pictures ) so we went with the name Tobias - TOBY for short - so they would not get confused.  Toby has come a long way and he is a little cuddle bug. 
He now weighs about 19 pounds and is all muscle. 
  He is very very smart; but still very timid around strangers.  He is very spoiled and has toys everywhere. 
He sleeps with Chris and me every night and loves to be under his own knitted blanket - nose buried. 
He loves all kinds of weather and is not afraid to go flying through the snow - even when it is over his head. 
Whenever we come home he greets us each with a kiss and then runs to fetch a favorite toy and bring it to us.
  Our good friend, Lynnie, and her poodle, Timmy are now living with us. 
Because of her good training with dogs, we have been able to acclimate Toby to her, my mom and one or two other friends.  Toby gets good vet care from the Healing Arts vet
who works with large zoo animals.  We think Toby is his smallest client!  We hope to make more progress with having more people around this summer.  T
he last picture is a cool one of Toby.  He is literally flying in the air running towards me. 
We have moved back to our  home in Cranston and he has a fully fenced in yard ot run and play and a big neighborhood wehere he gets lots of walks in all kinds of weather 2 or 3 times a day.
Toby is very very happy and very spoiled.  
We love him dearly. 
Liz Lussier
