Three Bernese mix pups, a brother and two sisters, came in a couple of weeks and were quickly adopted out maybe within a day of one another.

Following the photos is an update from the woman who took the two sisters.

From Ellie's new owner:

As promised i am keeping you up to date on our “ladies” Bella Dean and Ellie Melanson.

Life has taken on a whole new meaning for both Loweena and I and the “girls”.

We are getting our exercise with at least 3, 40 min walkies per day and that is not including the trips to our back gardens and the short jaunt just up the street and down before bed.

Ellie is just so gentle and sweet. The most amazing personality. All of my neighbours adore her and have volunteered for babysitting duty.

The toilet training is going really well we are both happy to report. Not perfect but what the heck they are still babies.

Tomorrow Ellie and I are off to see Dr Mike and the Westside Animal Clinic. She will get a real going over and I have a few questions too, nothing really serious I hope just her nose is warm and dry and she drinks gallons of water. Otherwise she is just thriving.

The world is just a huge wonderment for Ellie, she sits beautifully when we encounter neighbours and friends. And she walks really well on her leash.

I am on the lookout for a fluorescent collar and leash as she really is hard to see at night when she gets onto the lawns. ( i happily pick up after her )

I will write more when i get her results from her first vet visit. Loweena will take Bella next week ( 29th i think ).

Thank you for having faith in us to take these wonderful charges. I promise you will never regret it.

The reason for this blog is to help get specific dogs adopted from TAS but equally important is to try to normalize the idea of shelter dogs being just as good and just as desirable as any other dogs including those which are regularly merchandised by backyard breeders, puppy millers and those few remaining pet store owners who still feel a need to sell live animals. The single greatest stigma shelter animals still face is the belief that shelter animals are substandard animals. Anyone who has had enough experience with shelter animals knows this is untrue but the general public hasn't had the same experiences you've had. They see a nice dog photo in a glossy magazine and too many of them would never think of associating that dog with a dog from a shelter. After all, no one abandons perfectly good dogs, right? Unfortunately, as we all know, perfectly good dogs are abandoned all the time.

The public still too often associates shelter dogs with images of beat up, sick, dirty, severely traumatized animals and while we definitely sometimes see victims such as these, they are certainly not the majority and, regardless, even the most abused animals can very often be saved and made whole again.

Pound Dogs sometimes discusses the sad histories some of the dogs have suffered. For the most part, though, it tries to present the dogs not as victims but as great potential family members. The goal is to raise the profiles of animals in adoption centers so that a potential pet owner sees them as the best choice, not just as the charity choice.

So, here's the favour I'm asking. Whenever you see a dog picture on these pages you think is decent enough, I'd like you to consider sharing it on Facebook or any other social media sites you're using (I know many of you do this already and thank you for that). And when you share it, please mention that the dog in the photo is a shelter dog like so many other shelter dogs waiting for a home. If we can get even five percent of the pet buying public to see shelter dogs differently, to see how beautiful they are and how wonderful they are, and to consider shelter dogs as their first choice for a new family member, we can end the suffering of homeless pets in this country.
