Texas Hoarding/Cruelty Seizure Dogs Arrive to Denver! "Peter and Paulie's Story"

Paulie being curious and friendly!

"What 'ya guys doin'?"

"I was nervous at first, but now I knew it was okay to smile!"

"I can't wait to see what my life holds for me now!"

"I'm a dainty, friendly guy!"

"My new foster is taking me to the groomer!  I can't wait!"

"The next time I walk through these doors, I will be heart worm negative!"
"All we know is that we lived with someone who had *way* too many other doggies, and our health was neglected.  We all had fleas and ticks, not to mention nearly all of my brothers and myself have heartworm disease.  A few really nice people down in Texas, where we're from, met us at the shelter after other people came and loaded us all up in crates.  Some of my family I never ever saw again.  The locals told me that we were all great boys, and that they would work really hard to make it sure we didn't have to go to sleep.  They found nice people up in Denver who said they could take me and my brother!  I met them today, and they took us for a ride in their van to the doctor's office.  My brother, who they called Paulie, met this wonderful woman who put her in her car and said goodbye.  They said he is going into "foster home", but that I have to wait until the worms in my heart are gone.
"That's my brother, Paulie, in his new foster home!"

"Paulie was tired, it was a long trip.  I'm tired too!"

We were both a little shy when the nice Denver people got us, Paulie is a little more brave than me, but we are both so sweet and just want to snuggle and be loved.  I don't know if Paulie is *really* my brother, but I think I have known him for a really long time.  The lady today told me that she was going to tell me the same thing she told this other dog she called Henry.. she said that 'now that I met them, I didn't have to worry anymore.'

I have a wonderful foster home lined up, and I can't wait to meet her!  First I need to spend some time at the doctor's office so they can do some tests and get rid of the worms in my heart.  I can't wait to know what it feels like to be healthy again!

Me and Paulie are both great dogs, we didn't deserve this and we can't wait to become a member of someone's new family forever!"

Paulie & Peter are new to rescue and under evaluation.  They will be made ready for adoption when their health and behaviors are established and they've had time to adjust and get well!

We had overwhelming emotional support in our efforts to get them here.  They came a long way, and so many people were moved by their story and that of their other brothers & sisters.   These dogs were truly facing death and the Pyr rescue down in Texas really wasn't going to stand by and let that happen.  All the rescues down there are full, and they went to great personal and financial lengths to transport these guys up to us!  THANK YOU, Texas rescuers Eileen, George, and Dusteen!
