Tonks came to the Lally family as a one-year-old rescue from the streets of Los Angeles. When she arrived, she was extremely nervous. She had no training whatsoever. However, she was highly intelligent and seemed to know she was among friends. After just four short months Tonks’ rescue family was able to train her to do a multitude of things: like training her to use a crate, not to bark at the postman, to overcome her aggression towards men and warm up to kids, plus a list of commands. Tonks had advanced beyond recognition and it was time for Tonks to find her forever home.
Her rescue family decided to place Tonks on our Home To Home website in search of that special family. They knew a shelter stay would not be the best thing for Tonks and wanted to find just the right family for her to thrive. Within a week Tonks found her forever home.
Here is what the person who rescued Tonks from the harsh street life of LA had to say:
“We are so thankful to you for providing this service. Tonks has found a wonderful new home with wonderful people who will help her be the best dog she can be.”

Winston and the owner’s other dog did not get along. It became a serious situation and since Winston was the newcomer to the home, the owner knew to keep everyone safe, Winston needed a home where he could live peaceably.
Winston found it!
When I was posting “Buddy” on your site I saw “Winston” (the mastiff/Newfoundland gentle giant). I sent Winston’s pic and info to my step-son (45-year-old, 6’5″ gentle giant).
“Here is my stepson, Clint and Winston – both gentle giants! Clint adopted Winston from your home to home program. Winston is doing awesome. He is also the office dog (hasn’t warmed up to our big printer yet :)) They are very happy and a great fit for each other. Notice his “Drool Is Cool” bandana? Custom made by Clint’s Aunt, (24.5 inches around). So we are thankful for Home to Home!”

We adopted Lilly through the Home-Home website last Saturday. We had been looking for a young female cattle dog mix that would fit well with our family. We had our hearts set on the breed and were hoping to find the right dog who would do great with our kids and fit in well with our family. We were so happy to have found Lilly. She was just what we were looking for and had been well cared for by a wonderful family. She fits right in and we all love her like crazy!

Champ/Snake River Animal Shelter
Champ was a young hound that had been owner surrendered, then later adopted through the Snake River Animal Shelter in Idaho Falls. His new owners had to move out of state and couldn’t take Champ with them. They didn’t want Champ to go back to the shelter because he was so terrified there. Champ was very skittish around people. He had always been an outside dog and being indoors made him very uncomfortable. His owners posted him on our Home to Home website and found him a great family that he was very comfortable with and he never had to come back into the shelter environment.
