Welcome to Pokeadot’s Rescue Fred and Buckley!  

I’m pretty speechless right now but I’m going to try to get the words out of my heart and soul. Meet Debra and John from Sacramento. They had a good friend who was a disabled veteran and they helped him with a lot of his needs. One need were his beloved dogs.
About eight months ago he passed away. Debra and  John took them their daughters house and the lived their for awhile. Her life became stressful so they needed to find a new home.  Debra and John picked them up about 4 days ago and Debra stayed in a motel because they have cats at home and didn’t want them to get stressed out. She was referred by a friend of a friend to us.
Poor Buckley has a hurt back leg that’s he’s had for a while probably an ACL injury that needs to be attended to. He’s probably about 6 and Fred looks about the same by his teeth.

These people love these dogs so much that they agreed to pay the vet bill for Buckley. They both were in tears when they left. They also made a wonderful donation for us taking them in.  They were both in tears when they left. Both happy and sad ones.
Debra is going to write up a bio about Fred and Buckley and I’ll post it tomorrow.
Welcome to Pokeadot’s Buckley and Fred!!!!!

This is a bio that Debra wrote about Buckley and Fred...

Buckley and Fred: two good dogs!

These sweet little guys lived with a disabled veteran, Daniel, who passed recently. He loved them a lot and asked his friends to make sure that they would get a good home after his death.

Daniel adopted Buckley as a pup in early 2016. Buckley enjoyed the neighborhood cats, which would often drop by to visit. He likes to ride in cars and is a friendly little guy.

In 2017 Daniel found little Fred abandoned in a pharmacy. People remembered someone setting him down on the floor in the candy aisle and telling him to stay. Then the guy left the store without Fred. Daniel brought Fred home and he became one of the family.
Fred is a little shy, but he is gentle and makes friends easily. He loves to sleep on pillows, under pillows, on the lawn in the sunshine, or just about anywhere. He’s good at problem solving and learns easily. Buckley also likes to sleep, especially in a safe fenced-in yard, or indoors on the sofa, bed, or dog bed. He is also a smart and friendly dog and likes stuffed dog toys.
Now that their veteran dad is gone, they are hoping to find their forever home.

Note:  Buckley has had his surgery and did great!  He's recovering and starting to put weight on his leg.  They are ready for adoption!

This little girl was at the Lodi Shelter.  They reached out to us to see if we could help her.  Her puppies are due in the next couple of weeks.  She's under two years old and a very sweet little girl.

Little Bit

She's between 1-2 and ever so cute!  She came from a really bad breeder situation.  She's about 7 pounds and loves other dogs.  Loves to play with them.  However, she's going to need lots of tender loving care and patience.  She's still scared, but we're working really hard with her, but she's going to be a work in progress just like her other two friends we saved with her.  Both are in their new homes and doing great.
