Happy Tails

  Hello from the Jensens! We adopted Nora in February and could not be happier with this little cuddle bug. She is 10 years old but jumps on and off the furniture like a pro. Her favorite activities are belly rubs, going on walks around Concordia...

My name is Jakey and my story should actually be a movie.  My owner; Robert (Bobby) got me when I was about 6 weeks old (in December 2000).  Bobby was in a coma and was not expected to live and I was given to him...

I have been thinking about you guys alot and decided I better send a note before another year goes by.  I just can't tell you how happy and "in love" I am with Gabe (formerly Biscotti).  Everyone who meets him loves him.    Last year we went to Doggie...

My name is Blue and I adopted some nice people as my family the day after Christmas. They have a lot of cats and other dogs, one is a recently adopted dog from 4 Luv of Dog named Trigger! I like my friend Trigger and...

I'm happy to say I found my forever home. I got adopt by a fun loving couple about 4 months ago and now go by Jax (formerly Eli). We all had to learn some lessons like when I get bored I somehow find trouble no...

After almost 17 years we said good-bye to our beloved Memphis on July 5, 2012. Our home seemed to have lost its heart. We weren't ready to adopt so we applied to foster. We planned on having dogs come into our home, work on their training and transition them to...

I'm Annie, a 2 y/o Jack Russell terrier and I've been in my new home since March.  I went through some rough patches before I was rescued and I'm still afraid of loud sounds but parked cars and garbage cans don't bother me any longer. My black cat...

  Our family is so appreciative for 4 Luv of Dog and all that they do. Percy has been a great addition to our family.  Our neighbor was fostering her and we made a connection with her right away. We adopted her in November 2011. The...

  I'll be real honest, I didn't want to foster Sisco.  I was convinced, for some reason, that having a black, older dog would make it harder to get her adopted out to a forever home and we'd be stuck with her forever.  I wanted some cute,...

We have had our dog, Finkle, for almost a year now and could not be happier! My Husband and I began looking at adoption sites because we felt ready to add a member to our family. We both grew up in the country with medium-larger...

 My fiancé and I had been talking about adopting a dog for about six months before we found Sookie.  As soon as we saw her on the 4 Luv of Dog Rescue website we knew we had to meet her.  It just so happened that a few...

  I just wanted to say "Thank You" for bringing Niko into our lives. He quickly made himself at home and our other dog, Mickey, did not want to admit that he liked him and ignored him for the first couple weeks. Over the last couple...

I'm one of the dog trainers at PetSmart and it was one of the Saturdays that 4 Luv of Dog was in our store with their pups that needed be homes. I love moving among the dogs and saying hi, giving them pets, or treats. About...

We adopted Jasmine (Jazzy for short) in early March (formerly Cheyenne) and we just love her!! She hit it off instantly with our Rottweiler/German Shepherd, Jack--they are best buddies! Jazzy is so playful, affectionate, and lovable and is absolutely great with kids! She loves everyone...

It was about six months ago that I got a pleading e-mail from our Owner Surrender Coordinator about a dog in need of a foster.  This wasn't unusual since we do a lot of owner surrenders and are always trying to take more and more...

Bandit came into our lives as a foster almost 11 months ago and my kids and I will never be the same!!  A year and a half ago Bandit was hit by a car and broke his back right leg. Well the rescue vet in Oklahoma...

I adopted Skye, now named Cricket, after her bouncy hoppy nature after losing my first dog Berkley to leukemia. Cricket and I have since gone on many adventures together. From learning to bike, swim, become a running partner, jump into my arms, and kind of...

We are so grateful for 4 Luv of Dog and all that they do.  We adopted Duke about a year and a half ago and it has been the best experience!  We thank 4 Luv of Dog and Duke's foster mom, Susie every day!  We...

Hi my name is Deon!! I used to go by Leon, so it hasn't been too hard of a change for me. I have been with my new Mom and Dad for 8 months now and am so comfortable that they get to see my...

When my boyfriend and I originally started looking for a dog to adopt Havana caught my eye right away, it really tugged at my heart-strings knowing she had been waiting so long (about 2 years) for a forever home. The main factor that kept us from looking...

The first week of March this past year, was a difficult one to say the least. My dad, who I had been estranged with for most of my life, was on his final days after a short, but brutal battle with cancer. My husband and...

It was a chance meeting February 28th 2012  we stopped at PetSmart to get turtle supplies I had my 5 year old with me and we went to "look" at the dogs I have always loved dogs and have always gravitated towards the larger ones. ...

  We added Vinny to our family last November after fostering him for close to a year.  He has come a long way since his rough start in life and continues to impress us every day. He fits in with our family perfectly and keeps are other, older dog,...

I am writing to tell you how happy I am with my new family, the Magnuson’s!  John, Pam and Oriana have shown me that there are people in the world who truly love pets!  I’ve only been living here in Fergus Falls, MN for about...

I have fostered with 4 Luv of Dog for over four years and had 40+ dogs come in and out of my home.  It wasn't until Dane stepped foot into my house that I knew he was "the one".  He is as gorgeous as they...

Just wanted to take a moment to say thank you to 4LuvofDog for introducing us to our two best friends! Courage (previously known as Sawyer) came to us in November of 2010. I knew right away when I saw his picture on the website that...

Our house was lonely after our last dog died a year and a half ago. Nutmeg was a golden retriever cross rescue dog, and we had such good luck with her that I thought I ought to adopt again. So many great dogs available! It...

Thank you 4 Luv of Dog Rescue for bringing Buddy into our lives!  We LOVE him!  His stage name is now Jose Cuervo.  His Momager thought this was a good career move for him.  Jose (the Chihuahua) is pictured with his sister Martini and brother Peanut.  *All...

  After foster-failing THREE TIMES (equalling 4 dogs) I thought that for the sake of my family, I should probably stop fostering.  Then I went to meet a transport full out pound dogs from Bismarck.  First off of the transport came a basset/chihuahua/freak of nature puppy,...

  Thank you so much for rescuing our dogs, Stewie and Midge. Today, when I was walking them, a young lady pulled up and yelled "nice dogs". I decided this was a good time to let you know how much we enjoy them. Stewie is a...

Last November (2011) I was able to make my acquaintance with Ozzy, a little apricot/caramel colored Cock-A-Poo. When I met him he was cuter than I saw in his picture on the For Luv Of Dog website. We hit it off right away, but he...

  We adopted Marley back in May-his name was JR but the first family that took him named him Marley so we kept the name for him. He had a very hard start at life and went through 2 homes and a lot of shuffling around...

 We adopted Lila, aka Esmerelda.  She is just delightful!  She is goofy, energetic and full of love and wiggles.  She has learned to sit, shake, lie down and crawl.  She is a total foodie, so is very trainable.  Anything for a treat.  Plus, she is...

We adopted Fozzy at the beginning of February and he is one of the sweetest dogs we have ever met. He is incredibly well trained and we haven't had any accidents in the house or behavioral problems. He loves to snuggle and he and my...

  Here is Priah, a boxer mix, with her sister Bella, sleeping in the living room.  We met Priah the first weekend in May and invited her into our home a few days later.  She was blessed with a loving foster home and we are blessed...

We have now had Brady, the labramonster for 3 months.  He is such a gift to our family and definitely entertains all of us.  Not knowing much about his background proved to be a bit of challenge at first because Brady had some separation anxiety. ...

Lola (previously Yvette) and Rowdy are best friends. She fits perfectly in our home. She is such a sweet dog; we couldn't be happier! We're so glad that she found her way to us :) Thank you so much for the wonderful addition to our...

    Bella LUVS camping! She loves running, is such a tomboy and doesn't mind getting dirty at all, however, she doesn't like to just be on the ground like a normal dog...

We lost our miniature dachshund, Fritz, on Christmas Eve 2011 due to heart problems. He was a very special dog and we loved him very much.  Prior to Fritz, we had a female miniature dachshund named Heidi.  Fritz and Heidi were together for 11 years until we had...

My mommy tells me that angels sometimes come in different forms, and that I am her angel!  We found each other through 4 Luv of Dog when I was rescued by them after being abandoned and neglected.  I had to have half my teeth pulled,...

  Tully has had a rough start to his life. After being adopted once, through no fault of his own, had to be returned to 4 luv of dog rescue and put back into foster care. Thankfully we were blessed to find out about the unfortunate...

Before I was married I had two dogs that were my life.  Rusty the Dalmation and Chloe the Min Pin.  When I got married they accepted the new addition into our lives with open hearts.  A few years later we lost Rusty I was devastated...

  My boyfriend and I met Wyatt for the first time at a meet and greet at Petsmart in February.  We immediately fell in love, we had him over for a home visit/play date with our year old Olde English Bulldog Mix. They played the entire...

My husband and I adopted Bobby January 23, 2012 (my husband’s birthday!) We renamed him Avery after the duck hunting line. (my husband’s hoping he will be a hunter…) He learned potty training very quickly! But he stands at the door without making a sound so if we...

  We lost one of our dogs the middle of January. He was almost 13 years old and a treasure. He left a hole in our family as we all missed him very much. Especially our other 12 year old dog, Gus. We have always had...

We adopted Louis and Buddy on December 30, 2011. These two seniors fit in nicely with our other two adoptees. Now a dog family of four. Buddy was groomed shortly after we got him but Louis was too skiddish to be groomed normally. He had...

  We love our Bentley (formerly Brunhilda)! We adopted her last September 2011 and she’s a great addition to our family. She came to us as approximately a 9 week old puppy that was a bundle of curiosity. Not going to lie, she was definitely a...

My family and I adopted Brutis (aka Kane) back in August of 2011. Just wanted to drop you a line to let you know that he is doing wonderfully! He was somewhat trained when we got him, and has since been going through a home...
