Mai Mai – Good News Update

💕🐾Mai Mai the senior Shih Tzu’s, Good News Update🐾💕

Mai Mai’s beloved owner passed away three years ago. Mai Mai and her sisters were given to a trusted employee to love, nurture and care for them. Unfortunately, Mai Mai was given away then ended up at PBCACC. Her new owner didn’t want her anymore. In three years this once beautiful, healthy and very much loved little girl ended up dirty, matted, skin/eye issues, rotten teeth, tumor and cyst. Thanks to Mai Mai’s original and beloved owner’s daughter, she was rescued from the shelter and provided outstanding medical care by Dr. Abbott, Animal Clinic at Wellington Reserve and her dedicated staff. Mai Mai had to have 21 teeth removed, plus surgery to remove a tumor on her neck, a cyst on her face, plus skin treatment.

Thanks to Heidi Garcia for not only assisting Dr. Abbott with Mai Mai’s surgery/treatment but for transporting her to the most amazing new parents on the west coast of Florida. Neither heavy rains or bad traffic prevented Heidi and her husband from placing Mai Mai in her new mom, Nettie’s loving arms where she so belongs. Mai Mai now has a new brother, Willie and sister, Trixie which were also rescued by Nettie and Yuan.



Special thanks to Joy Drasher, The Clip Joint for babysitting plus groomimg Mai Mai which was very difficult due to her condition.


Nettie provided this message from Mai Mai:

“Ok I think I need the biggest bed in the house? I think I going to LOVE ❤️ it here.” Mom says, “Mai Mai had a new bed that she came with, however, I guess she likes the one she chose? Like Goldie Locks, this one is hard, this one is to soft, but this one is just right (which happens to be brother, Willie’s).  I am happy she likes to eat even with the loss of 21 teeth.”

As we always say, “It takes a village to save a life and find an amazing loving forever home.”

Thanks to each and every one who touched Mai Mai’s life and cared enough about her to go that extra mile.

We are wishing Mai Mai and her new family, “Happy Days Ahead!”   


Update on Prince who is now Henry from his family:

I hope all is well. I thought you might like an update on little ‘Prince’ who was ultimately renamed Henry!

He has settled in beautifully. He and Hector are best buddies – he is everything we hoped for and more!

Also our vet believes he is closer to a year old than two years old.

Finally did you know that he is profoundly deaf? It is not an issue for us as he sticks with big brother Hector all the time and we have kitted him with a collar buzzer so we can call him when we need him. He is leaning sign language too.

I don’t know what happened to the poor fellow but this might explain how he got lost.

Anyway I will s bd you some pictures. And thank you for connecting us to our precious pup!

“Frankie has since had Pancreatitis and has been diagnosed with Cushing’s. He still bites but it comes in waves. We consider them our tattoos. He doesn’t take his insulin shots well, but what are we going to do? He has to have them But by and large he’s a sweetheart. Follows us both around and cuddles when he isn’t crazy. Somebody’s gotta love him and we do♥️”


My dear friends adopted Frankie after fostering him. At the time Sharon and Mel took Frankie in to foster he was diabetic and a biter. They have done soooo much for Frankie. He would have died without them. Sharon & Mel are truly the definition of “Rescue Angels.”

BanditHi to All at Destiny for Dogs,

I hope you all doing well, as we are here.  We are coming up on our 3rd year with Bandit.  He is doing fine and loves North Carolina, especially when he can sit in his favorite place.  This was just taken before his hair cut.  He is still quite a character, and loving.  Thanks again for helping make this happen.

Happily Ever After 02I can’t tell you how happy we are with BOGIE!  We have designated March 8th as his name day since we don’t know his real birthday.

He is just the most well behaved, sweet soul who wants as much human contact as possible. He is so good natured and so grateful for his new home that he breaks my heart every day. I love him so much. We haven’t done too much exercising yet because I want to wait until his stitches are out. As soon as we got home to Palm Coast he took a big drink of water. He is eating and drinking normally. We are practicing walking on a lead, heal and a little sit and stay. He is such a good boy that he doesn’t really need his cone because if he starts messing with the stitches, a simple ‘no’ command works. All he wants to do is please. Not one accident in the house. He is just perfect in every way.Happily Ever After 01

I have what I think is the first of many funny Bogie stories.  The first time I left him alone was the night of my birthday.  We went to dinner and stayed out for about 3 hours. When we came home, all seemed peaceful enough and I gave him lots of praise for no accidents. Then I went into my shoe closet….I keep tissue paper in all my shoes to keep them clean and in shape. He had delicately removed the tissue paper from two shoes, didn’t chew the shoes but shredded the tissue paper. The funny thing was that he made a neat little pile of paper in the middle of the room. It was so easy to clean up it was like it almost didn’t happen. It was right then and there that I knew we were destined for each other. I am a very neat person (everyone teases me about it) and I finally found a kindred spirit!  Even while making a ‘mess’ Bogie’s was a neat one!

Clyde and he are getting along fine. I am attaching pictures of Bogie with us as well as with Clyde. I can assure you that he has the most wonderful forever home he could possibly want and I have the most wonderful new family member I could possibly want as well. I don’t know how we found each other, but this is for sure a match made in heaven!

Legend Is Lucky To Have Rescue Friends

image1Legend is a 10 year old Beagle boy who was dumped at a high-kill shelter by his owner.  This darling, loving and sweet as pie guy had a slim to none chance of finding a new loving forever home to spend the rest of his life.  It was thought that Legend would never leave the shelter alive.  Then a wonderful, loving and caring lady asked if someone could pull Legend as she just had to try and save him.

To make a very long story short, it took a village to finally get Legend to where he needed to be health-wise and into his loving forever home.  Thanks to so many loving and caring rescuers, Legend will now live out the rest of his life, receiving TLC and the best vet care with our very own and amazing, Cornelia and Rene’.

Destiny for Dogs didn’t think twice about paying for all of Legend’s medical bills for his care to get him healthy enough to go to his forever home.  Destiny for Dogs believes that everyone should have a chance at life no matter how short that life will be.  We want all dogs to know love before they cross over the rainbow bridge.

A special “Thank You” to the rescue that pulled Legend from the shelter, provided medical care and paid for his boarding. The terrific gal who originally picked up Legend from the first vet, transported him to “in-house” boarding and then to his loving forever home in Vero.

We all love “Happily Ever After’s” and this is truly one story that will go down in “The Rescue World’s History Book.”
