Here are some updated pictured of Opal and Goldie. Goldie has been with us a year now and Opal for seven months. Opal has really come a long way from the underweight girl that arrived here last December. She really shows the benefits of a good quality diet. The pictures are hard to get as the girls are always active and hard to catch with the camera. One of the pictures shows our foster, Kermit, who will go to his new forever home next Saturday with the others waiting for dinner.

Yahtzee came to us from ABTC Rescue through Bill and Sally Miller as our first foster. We picked her up late Saturday night, December 15th and brought home a tired, hungry, underweight and neglected coonie. She had been on the road for some 12 hours being convoyed from northwest Florida to Jupiter. We immediately put her on a raw food diet and have put 6 or 7 pounds on her in the last few weeks. Opal is such a sweetheart that we could not bear to give her up so we decided that we would adopt her as she gets along so well with her sisters, Raven the rottie and Goldie, our first ABTCR rescue in June '07. Opal is now seen wagging her tail all time and really loves the long walks and playtime with her sisters.

Thank you ABTC Rescue,

Goldie has been with us for 5 months now. She and Raven are getting along very well. Goldie has really come out of her shell and is very comfortable in her new home. We really enjoy her comedic hound antics. She is doing especially well on the B.A.R.F diet and it really shows in her coat, white teeth and no "dog" bad breath. Our best guess is that she is 12-14 months and past the 65lb mark and taller than her Rottie sister, Raven.

Our 18 month old rescue rottie was the first to meet Heart of Gold at the boarding house where she was being fostered here in Jupiter Farms Florida. Raven the rottie and Goldie became fast friends. Upon our return to retrieve Raven, we met Goldie and discussed adopting her, after all it was a shame to seperate the two friends.

We had reciently lost Raven's older rottie buddies, a 4 year old to cancer and an 11 year old to failing health and old age. Raven picked Goldie so we adopted her. We have been rescuing dogs for nearly 30 years and have had as many as four.

The house was so empty with a single dog and Goldie is certainly an enriching addition to the family, the two girls have become inseperable buddies and we look forward to years of companionship with Goldie and Raven together. Raven is 18-20 months old Goldie is 9-10 months old, what great ages for puppies!

We have the 2 on an acre and a quarter with a pond and plenty of room to run around. They enjoy air conditioned comfort during the heat of the day and supervised play in the mornings and evenings. More as our lives continue....
