"I'd Walk a Thousand Miles For You" Emma and Ruby

We guess we'll never know how many miles these sisters walked but they walked and they walked and they walked. And by the time a wonderful woman and her husband found them Emma and Ruby's paws were swollen, red and blistered. We don't even know where they gathered the energy. Their bones could easily be counted. They acted like they'd never eaten a meal in their life. They were terribly neglected physically. Medical complications arose because of their neglect but the Good Samaritan who found these babies hung in with them. And we mean hung in! It isn't always convenient to be a Good Samaritan. A person who sees a pet in need and decides they can't turn their back. But the payoff for the heart well you can't put it into words but you can sure put it into pictures. Look at Emma and Ruby now! ♥

The only thing better than this amazing picture of these darling sisters is that last picture we can't wait to post. The day they find their forever home! Ruby and Emma are approximately 4 years old around 58 pounds. They've done amazingly well with the other dogs and they are just wonderful with humans. Love kept these two sisters together and maybe that hope and prayer of a forever family is what kept them going. ♥ ♥

When a Good Samaritan took a trip to Georgia she had no idea that the trip home would include a sweet gal (Pitbull Mix) in desperate need. Georgia had been dumped in a known dumping area and most likely had been bred.

Unable to turn her back on this brown eyed beauty, Georgia came home with this new buddy. Georgia had been saved. But it wasn't just food and water and love Georgia needed. Georgia had been neglected and she needed extra vet care. Well, Georgia is feeling tip top and she's ready for her forever home.

Georgia had to undergo emergency surgery for pyometra (spayed at this time) and she is almost done with her heartworm treatment. She feels brand new and she looks brand new. And now Georgia is ready for YOU.

If you have a big heart and the time to spend with this very devoted young lady, perhaps Georgia will stay on your mind. Having a home with a forever family is what's been on her mind. Georgia would do best either as an only pet or with other docile dogs. Cats are unknown. Older children would seem like a nice fit. Oh...and did we mention she's cuddler? Yep - she's a "Spooner." And if you adopt Georgia she'll be a keeper!!

Drum roll please! Introducing Red! Weighing in at 40 pounds; 5 years old with a personality that will delight you for hours. Red is funny, friendly and cuddly You don't have to remiind Red he needs to smile. This delightful boy goes to bed with a smile on his face and if you are the lucky family who adopts him we promise you that he will keep you smiling all day long! Giggles are Red's motivators. Fair warning...if you let out a giggle and Red catches wind we can assure you that Red is going to wiggle and wiggle!

Although Red doesn't stand too far off of the ground when Red decides he wants to "High Five," he stands up tall. First time we've ever seen a dog do "High Five," standing up!!

But wait...we're forgetting something very important! That face! Those eyes! You want to say "Yes Red, whatever you want even before you meet him. No acting there...Red just knows how to melt hearts!

We'd love for Red to have another canine pal to play with because he knows that love and he has lived with children. Red is quite energetic so an interactive owner with a fenced in yard would allow him to run to his heart's content. But with that possible Hound...Well if a fence is not locked Red could be gone so that's a real must!

If you're home a little more and want a dog that you can adore...Maybe that dog is sweet little Red. Oh and if you let him he will sleep in the bed!
