Happy Rescue Stories Friday Friends!! We're back in August with another smilin' pup whom we love so much. If you've been following along the past few months you know that during these ruff times, animal shelters and organizations have been struggling to maintain enough funding and supplies to support the hundreds of adoptable dogs/pets in their shelters. We are doing everything we can to help their efforts!
At Fit & Go Pets we play an important role (sometimes big, sometimes small) in helping dog rescue parents and their dogs as they go through their rescue journey and adapt to a new life. We see, firsthand, entire lives changed for the better. We feel this role we serve is a big part of who we are as a company, and our duty, to help our community and help as many dogs and pawrents as possible.
So without further ado, we are so excited to introduce you to this month's Rescue Story... meet our sweet Teddy!
Rescue Stories: Meet Teddy
- Rescue date: October 4, 2020
- Personality: sweet, loving, and playful
- Loves to: play with all her pup friends and snuggle
Her dad Abrán tells us Teddy’s story:
Teddy was rescued from Broward County Animal Care and Adoption Center when she was six months old. Teddy’s early life is unknown, but at the point of her adoption process she had been returned twice.
The greatest lesson:
Teddy helped me grieve my 14 year old pittie who had recently passed away. She helped affirm that dogs are one of God's greatest gifts.
A piece of advice:
Make sure you know what you’re getting into as it is a long term commitment. If you aren’t willing to invest in training and giving your dog time to learn and adapt then you should probably reconsider adopting a dog.
What do you wish you had known before rescuing your dog? We would love to share this content to help others!
Patience is a must and you will learn as you go. It definitely gets easier.
We know you have a wonderful dog rescue story. Tell us your story so we can post it on our blog and share it with all the people we know. It will take 5-8 minutes of your time. Let's get more people excited about dog rescue!
