Second Chance-Happy Tales

This is our favorite page on the website! Dogs in this section have found a happy home with their adoptive families through Second Chance. Once you have adopted a dog through Second Chance Dog Rescue, we would love to post your "Happy Tails" story and pictures here. Please email your stories and pictures to Lisa.

Second Chance Dog Rescue is proud to announce the following adoptions that have taken place since 2004. Most of the dogs that come into Second Chance Dog Rescue were either on their final days or very close to it. Each of the dogs that are taken into the rescue are examined by the vet and provided with all shots, as well as they are neutered or spayed and heartworm tested. The majority of the dogs are often very sick and may also need time to just "feel better". For many of you that adopted from us, our house was just the first step; your home has become your new pet's final step in finding his/her "forever home". Hopefully, as time has gone on, your new friend is settling in and the pain that we once saw in his eyes is turning into the joy of knowing that his forever home is one that is filled with love and security.

To read our happy tails simply click on the first letter of the dog's name to see the happy tails of all the dogs whose name begins with that letter.

Fudge (Formerly Milo)


Lisa, I just wanted to drop you a line to let you know how Milo (now named Fudge) is doing. We are absolutely in love! He has met new doggie friends and chicken friends. He is a gentleman. We don't trust him with the chickens yet as he is just too playful and curious but we let him sniff them every day. We are now spacing his potty breaks at every 3 hours and he has not had any accidents. He has only had 3-4 to date. Today he went to a picnic with us for my son's civil air patrol group and he was kind, gentle, and friendly with everyone though he was more interested in sniffing out the food. Typical pug. He is learning leash manners and to sit on command with a piece of kibble, of course. He sleeps from 9:30pm - 7:30 am with no accidents. This week we will be giving him more freedom to roam the house because he just follows us where we are and listens very well when told "No!"

Fudge and Chase are getting along well. Chase now gets more attention. He was getting old and grouchy. Now that everyone sits on the floor to play with Fudge, Chase comes over for attention too. He won't admit it yet but he is happy Fudge is here too. I hope he will play with Fudge eventually because I can tell Fudge misses his playful doggie friend. We play lots of tug of war with him to make up for it. If you ever hear from his previous owner please share how much he is loved and offer that they could visit him if they'd like.

Thank you! This is the perfect dog for us! Amy and all the Reids
