Rescued dog Rescues other Dogs

Rescue Dog Trooper from Italy, now a 12 years old Senior. 

Limping a lot the last couple of days, so a visit to our wonderful veterinarian, Stephanie.

All our animals loves her, and especially the lapdog Trooper.

X rays, blood test and urine test were being made, all because of different reasons. 
Hopefully we receive good results tomorrow. Paws crossed please!

Trooper was being found in a shelter only 9 months old. He was bought from Hungary 2007, for 900 euro. Trooper was a happy puppy, and like many young dogs he dug around in their garden.

The family was furious, and dropped him off at a small shelter.

2016 he was diagnosed with severe cancer and had probably 6 months left to live. Well, he fooled the veterinarian by that time, big time. And we are happy for that.

Trooper has been with us for 11 years, and he is the best dog in many different ways. He is our welcome dog, greeting all new rescue dog(s). Trooper shows the newcomers around, and tells them the houesehold routines in the AWL Senior Enviroment.
Amazing hard, and great Support worker!

That’s Amore!

In Spite of Life-Threatening Experiences, Still she Wags her Tail

I immediately saw her.  With her big black eyes she sat in a small cage looking curious at me. It felt like she chose me. I asked the American Animal Organization to adopt the little cute dog Shiloh. They told me that Shiloh’s mother and siblings had  previous week been gassed to death by the state’s dog patrol.

The veterinarian found out that Shiloh had a kennel cough and had to sit isolated for a while. Back home she quickly grew into my family, along with three other dogs. We moved from the US to new adventures in southern Italy.

The dogs took the long trip better than us nervous dog owners.

One evening, we walked with Shiloh along the wide Italian street. Suddenly a car arrived at high speed and drove over her!! Severely injured, she was taken to the emergency room. Nobody thought she would survive.

I prayed day and night for her.

“She’s a miracle dog,” the veterinarians told me when I finally brought her home.

The following year, Shiloh got serious problems with her kidneys. She peed blood.

I was told about a great man, Michael, who could cure animals but who had no veterinary license. Michael was also a good homeopath. No other veterinarian had previously been able to cure Shiloh’s kidney problems. Instead, they thought we should euthanize her. Michael examined her and asked several questions. Suddenly, he took hold of Shiloh’s side and with his palm he hit her kidneys. Shiloh shouted out.

I thought he was crazy!

We left, and with us we got some medicine ampoules.

A couple of weeks later she was healthy!

I told our veterinarian.

“She is a miracle dog,” he said again.

Once again it was time to move to new adventures and this time to southern Germany. Again, Shiloh moved with us but this time with 16 other happy dogs.

Today she is 14 years old. A beautiful limping  greymuzzle Senior, but still the same positive attitued as the first time I saw her there in the small cage.

She’s really a miracle dog.

I believe, we have a lot to learn from the animals.

We are what we think. Never give up!

That’s Amore!
