Hi dear friends,

Well DROH had another good month for adoptions in May, 13 in all, but we also had a major setback that was & is very disturbing. Four little ones that had been recently adopted in April were returned to DROH. There were several reasons given......they were too hard to handle, didn't get along with their other dogs, to much responsibility, etc. Mommy doesn't buy any of it. She says what it all boils down to is that they weren't given time to settle in. Before somebody adopts a dog or cat, they must first make sure they are going to be committed to adopting. The problem now is that we are out of fosters and the fosters we do have are now overloaded but we will not be defeated. We will never give up on any doggie in need. It might take time but every dog needs a home and sooner or later we will find one for all of them again.

So here are the lucky 13.

Love, kisses and {{{huggies}}} to all.....Mona

Hi Mona,
Wow.. well done on the 13 adoptions... that fab news that 13 pups will have a new home!!
Yes, you are absolutely right.. those people who returned the 4 pups just weren't committed enough. Well, it may be better this way that they return the pups to DROH than if they keep them but end up neglecting them.

Nice to see all those pups getting good homes. I LOVE the little pugs. They remind me of mini-me's.


Raising Addie said...

That is just wonderful that you had sooo many adoptions.

We sure do hope that those 4 pups find new forever homes. We just know the right home is waiting for them.

Thank you for the update on Clover. We will head over there!

Hi, Mona!
Congratulations on those adoptions! Those doggies who were returned will find a real lovely home soon!

How exciting about all the adoptions!! They are all so cute and we hope they have found great furever homes.

Nancy and the fatties said...

Hi Mona and Sarah - we are so happy for the babies who found good homes. How sad when families adopt thinking they will get a perfect dog. We try so hard with pug rescue to dispel that notion, but it doesn't always work.
Thank you so much for all you do for these wonderful weenies! We just adore you and your mom for all your hard work. Now we have to skitter on over to Clover's new blog and see Chewy! it will be like a Pug PAWTY!!!
love and kisses from your northern neighbors....

oh we are sorry to be so late catching up with youse.

Those photos of the dogs adopted were so lovely, but what a shame about the ones who were returned.

When I was re-homed, my parents had to foster me for a week on trial, before they decided to keep me.

So many dogs need good homes, and there are so few people nowadays willing to take on the full responsibility of caring for a pup.
