Happy Tails

I got Miller for the 4 Luv of dogs rescue in September of 2013. He had a bad jaw problem that made it hard to eat. My girlfriend found him on the site and refused to pick and other dog she wanted Miller. I got...

"Slow and calm introductions,"  "consistent positive training."   Those were the phrases used on Teeka's (formerly Wes) page to describe him.  There were others too, but those were the ones that stood out to me.  What kind of dog was this?  We had dogs in...

Our family was looking for a little fur ball to add to our life that would get along with our children, cats, and other people. We scoured the 4 Luv of Dog Rescue page reading all the bios and looking at pictures. "Harley" now "Farley"...

M73 was his name when I met him and I can’t honestly tell you where he was when I met him other than somewhere in the Casselton Vet Clinic. He was one of 174 dogs rescued the day prior from a horrible puppy mill and...

I have volunteered with the rescue for over a year, and I have been fostering for close to that. I own a Great Dane and my first foster was a Pitbull. I have never really considered myself a little dog person. When I was contacted...

We have had Steve since February and he has very quickly become center of our family.  I can’t imagine how anyone didn’t adopt him sooner.  I am guessing it was fate that brought him to us.  He has been quite a large help to me right away as...

We started fostering Molly (aka Olivia) in April, 2011, when she was 10 years old.  She came to the rescue with a mouth full of horrible teeth.  After having nearly half of her teeth removed, she felt so much better!   Sad to say but not many people...
