Bruce is big boy that sadly had been shuffled around in multiple homes before coming to OWNCR. Now he is enjoying the good life and loves his new brother, a fun loving Golden Retriever.

Winston’s family shared the following update: “He loves everyone. Everyone loves him!!! We finished all the obedience classes and he is now training to be a therapy dog.”
A sweet note from Jack’s family: “I just wanted to let you know that Max is doing absolutely WONDERFUL!!! We could not be any happier with him! We have changed his name, however, to Jack. That was the one name that everyone could agree on! He and Madie have gotten along together wonderfully! She has actually acted somewhat playful with him, which is sooo out of the norm for her! Also, when he met our cat, Cleo, he walked up to her and licked her on the head! I couldn’t believe it! He has been so perfect in every way and is adjusting very well and is very happy! I will keep you all updated with emails and pictures. Know that you always have an open invitation to our home any time to come and visit him!!! Thank you for all of the wonderful work you do!”
Guiness and O’Riley were both adopted from OWNC Rescue. O’Riley is a sweet, handsome Landseer who was adopted eight years ago. Family life has been a little more exciting now that young Guiness has joined the family. We received the following update Guiness, “Having a puppy in the house again is very entertaining and exhausting! He has so much energy. At any given time you can find about 15 toys scattered about, along with his tennis balls.”
Ike, who is pictured on the left, came into rescue as a stray. He had been wondering the streets and was covered with ticks. This would be a terrible experience for any dog, but even more so for Ike because he is blind from juvenile cataracts. Thankfully, those bad days are over and Ike is loved and adored in his new home. Ike’s best friend is Leo (pictured on the right). Leo seemed to instinctively know how to help Ike learn his way around the house and yard. Now Ike and Leo play together and have a great time! As you can see from the picture, their mom is very proud of both of these boys!
As the only dog in the family, Chewy is the center of attention and totally spoiled!
Skittle went from being a sad, sick shelter dog with heartworms to a happy, healthy, member of a loving family! Now Skittle’s tail never stops wagging and he loves everyone he meets.

If you ask about Emma, her family will tell you, “She is the most amazing dog. She is smart, beautiful, eager to please, and such a love muffin.”

Oliver was extremely thin and very ill when he was rescued from the animal shelter. His health and spirits improved rapidly thanks to the love and care he received in his foster home.

Bogie was adopted by OWNC members who felt that having two Newfs just wasn’t quite enough. With Ruffin, Cosmo, and Bogie the gang is now complete.
