Rescuing Jack

I have had only about 5 minutes in the last few days as Linda Fung and I were able to rescue a baby!! We had been working all week on this project and didnt was to say anything cause we had no idea how this would turn out. Jack was a Maltese who was being given away by his owners, as they allegedly did not want him once they had a baby. We didnt know that this baby was over a year old and Jack had been left outdoors in a kennel with a rottweiler for over a year. And as you can see from the pictures - he was STARVED!! He spent the week at a a puppy brokers where he was shaved down, as he was infested with fleas and mats. Well she agreed to not send him to a shelter & hang on to him so we could try to find him a home. Thanks to Linda, she contacted a friend who said she would love him. So yesterday the delivery marathon started. DH and I drove to southern NJ to pick up Jack. My heart sank when I saw how skinny he was (found at 6lbs - gained during the week and yesterday was at 7.12 lbs) He is a DOLL! Very sweet, happy, sat in his carseat well, walked well on a leash. Not neutered, so was a happy marker, when I delivered him 1/2 thru the state to Linda, who very graciously took him the rest of the way to his new Mommy in Philadelphia. His new Mommy loved him, said last night that he was settling in and that his forever home will be with her or her grandmother who wants him without even seeing him!! This was a nice way to spend the weekend, helping to find this baby a home. FYI -they pressed charges agains the owners, so hopefully they will pay a penalty somehow for their horrid treatment of this sweet dog. 1st Pic is how he was found. Then his fist bath after being buzzed, and the last two in the convertable during delivery!!

Laurie,

What a bittersweet story! You and Linda are just AMAZING women! What a wonderful way to spend your free time helping this lil' guy find a loving home. It really pains me to hear how he was neglected, I just simply do not understand the cold, cruel ways of some people. Bravo to you and Linda! If you get anymore updates or pictures of Jack, please share them with us! He's darling!

Victory for Jack and Way to go Laurie and Linda!!!! You must feel GREAT knowing that this sweet little soul will have a happy life now! What a blessing!

He's just precious, I cannot imagine looking into that adorable face and not giving that baby everything his little heart desired. I'm sure he'll think the wait was worth it, now that his forever home has been found.

There's a special place in heaven for the two of you !!

I have to give Laurie 90% of the credit. She was on top of this the entire time. She went out of her way to, make calles, email, pick up Jack and send a care package home with him. If you haven't figured it out yet, Laurie is a sweetie with a HUGE heart. Yes, I found him his home, but I could not have done it without Laurie's help!

He was so sweet. He was so quiet on route to his new home. He also sat on my lap and let me hold him. he didn't seem to be too fearful of people or dogs. He just loved the attention he was finally getting! What a beautiful ending to such a tragic beginning.

Isn't it amazing that he was so comfortable around new people and dogs after all he'd been through? You can tell in the pics in the convertable...he looks happy and excited. His little head is up, his tail is up...he just looks ready for his big adventure. I have a feeling he is going to be his new family's little miracle boy!

Thanks all, but I am sure you would have done the same thing if the pup was in your area!!! It was fun too, we learned a whole new way to get home and saw lots of interesting towns on our 2 1/2 trip home - Everyone should drive around their state sometime - it was pretty cool!!
