Cadbury's Happy Ending

Sometimes in rescue work, you hit this point where you wonder "What is wrong with this world?", "How much more can I take of seeing bad things over and over"...   then you find a dog like Cadbury (and unfortunately, there are MANY like Cadbury).   You wonder... what did this beautifully sweet, gentle and loving dog go through to end up emaciated, dying in a ditch on the side of the road???

Every time,  it is just as heartbreaking, just as hard.  Sometimes you cry, sometimes you joke, sometimes you are just numb, but as a rescue, each of our volunteers just keep trucking a long.   What pulls us through over and over and over are the happy endings!   And there ARE many happy endings that force you to continue.  The happy endings keep you working knowing that with no end to the homelessness in sight, you have to keep going.  You have to pull it together and just keep saving lives that are depending on you!  

So on Saturday, Cadbury found his home. Did you read that! He found his HOME!
He left with a loving family that fell in love with him as soon as they read his story.   He will have two gentle children to romp around with and just snuggle.  

On his first day home, he rolled on the floor with his new dad and even met a few of his new doggy neighbors.   He even had a movie night with a bunch of children and a dog friend!

He left my house weighing in at a whopping 15lbs more than when he got there.  He was up to 65lbs!   He still has a long way to go, but he was headed there big time!

Although he was still low on energy (and very chill!) this was his last romp with his temporary foster dog pals.  Look how happy he was and how much better he looked.

Please help Dogs XL Rescue continue to take in the harder cases.   They require more time, medical care and financial support.  We can not do it without you!   Please donate to our critical care fund and help save a dog that deserves a second chance like Cadbury!
