Annie

Annie is the newest member of the Foster failure club. Annie was on the streets of Miami with knotted and dirty dreads. She was unwanted and abandoned by her previous owner. But she went from rags to riches and joined the foster failure club, when her foster/new mom Catherine took her in.

BEFORE: Annie’s fur was shaved all off.

BEFORE: On her way to her new mom

AFTER: Catherine, “Annie after her modeling shoot on Worth Avenue today.”

Annie, “It’s hard work looking this good.”

Joey – UPDATE HAS A FOREVER FOSTER HOME

Joey 05Joey 03

Joey is a 3-year old Corgi-Chi Mix who may be facing the unthinkable – to be sent to the Rainbow Bridge for lack of a stable, loving and permanent home.  For his entire life, he has either been adopted and returned, or bounced from foster home to foster home which none have been able to devote the time, patience and care he needs to learn to live with his special needs.  He has never known true love.

This sweet, lovable, cuddle-bug of a guy can’t process information like most dogs and is easily over stimulated.  He will need to be on medication for life, and is currently working with a veterinarian/behaviorist in Palm Beach to help him learn how to comfort himself and stay calm.  Most of all, he needs a human who is as special as he is and who has the desire to help him live up to his potential.  It is what he deserves!

Joey’s current foster can no longer keep him and boarding is out of the question due to his unique needs.  The lack of stability is exaggerating the affects of this chemical imbalance and his current foster family has little time to devote to his behavioral training.  In short, Joey is out of options and out of time unless we can find him a human who can and will love him for life.

Joey is full vetted and current on vaccinations.  These are his special adoption needs that Destiny for Dogs wants to maintain:

  1. Adopter needs to live within one hour of West Palm Beach.
  2. Adopter must be willing to travel to West Palm Beach at least 2 times a year to meet with the veterinarian/behaviorist who has been working with Joey.
  3. Ideal home is one or two adults (seniors or retirees preferred), no children and no other pets.  If grandkids visit it would be best for Joey to be in a separate room so he can stay calm.

Baby is Loved

Baby and Candy 04Baby is a Maltese that was living under extreme hoarding conditions all while he had dental disease, heart infection and was blind.  His former owner never provided any vet care.  When Baby was rescued he was not allowed to go outside and go potty so he had no choice but to do his business inside this home.  He has been in foster care since January 2013.  His owner has passed away in April 2013 and now was able to be moved into his forever home where he is getting the special care he needs.  We are so happy Baby is going to be loved and live like a normal dog with his new caretaker.

Teddy – Foster Forever

My first foster mom missed me so much she came back for me and now has adopted me.  I love her so much and I now have a full time canine sibling where we spend most of the day with our mommy while she works.

When Destiny for Dogs delivered me to my new home there were many tears as everyone loved me and I was hard to give up.

I just want to say to JoAnn Goodrich of Destiny for Dogs…I LOVE YOU!!

Roxy is Awesome!

After being given away, abandoned, returned by one foster, returned by adopter, Roxy has finally found her forever family.  Roxy had issues with separation anxiety so she was returned by her first foster family and returned by her first adopter.  After Roxy was placed in foster care again it was realized that Roxy simply had been crate trained in the past and once she had a crate she no longer had separation anxiety.  Her foster family loved her so much they have decided to keep her.  Hooray for Roxy as she is such a loving and absolutely adorable girl.

Molly is Home…forever!

Molly is a Westie mix who has found the perfect home with her foster family.  Molly developed some urinary problems after her spay surgery and her original adopter returned her.  She then was returned from another potential home for the same issue.  We began to worry for this adorable active little girl.  When her foster family met her, they fell in love, and have learned how to manage her “issues” and is allowing her to live happily ever after with their wire-haired Chihuahua (Taco), and lately a new addition of a tiny boy Chi, (Yogi). They have bonded well, and Molly is guaranteed a forever home. This family adopts for LIFE, no question.

Lupi’s Story is Awesome

 

 

Lupi is a teacup Chi who was seen on several occasions along the railroad track behind some warehouses in West Palm Beach.  Many attempts were made to rescue her, but she was too frightened.  After a long search, and then ten days of offering food and water, we withheld food for a day and then set a humane trap. We had our girl in a few hours! Lupi is the feminine form of the Spanish word for “wolf”.  This poor girl lived like wild dog, right here in the middle of the city!  The first picture is her in her hiding place where she was found, the next is her capture and the final photo is her loving her foster family so much she decided to stay and they decided to keep her.  She has truly found her Destiny!
