As someone who loves DoggieRescue and crocheting,
I thought I could combine the two to raise funds and
spread the word about DoggieRescue’s lifesaving work.
I ran an online auction with crocheted toys, each of
whom shared their name with a DoggieRescue dog who
needed a home.
The response was very positive with $880.00 raised for
DoggieRescue. While the auction has closed you can

I first met Justin some years ago when he was rescued
by Monika. I was warned that he was food aggressive
which meant that he was very protective of his meals so
I fed him separately. He shunned contact from me and
other volunteers, he hid away in his bed and stood alone
and away from other dogs. He was a sorry and self
isolated little dog. All that could be done for him was to
provide regular meals, a warm bed, reinforce love and
security by giving attention to other dogs around him
and just say "hello Justin" each week.
It is clear that Justin had not experienced a good life
before coming to Doggie Rescue. I would say he was
poorly treated and no doubt neglected with little to no
loving human contact. But Justin is a success story to
what a safe and happy environment can achieve.
Eventually this little dog's personality has turned around.
Justin is still quiet but loves one on one attention, wags
his tail and shows delight to see those who care for him.

ATHOS I BELIEVE IT
That Athos somehow
had waited for me to
take him home...
Click here Hello Readers,
photos Athos had a tough start to life as he was one a litter of
puppies abandoned in a pound and I first met him in Nov
By Birgit van Lisk 2013 shortly after the 3 musketeer puppies ( as they were
nicknamed ) were released from the vets and came into
DR’s shelter. I spent heaps of time with him at Doggie-
Wood before I was able to give him a good and
appropriate home with a big backyard and lots of dogs
in the neighbourhood. I believe that it was meant be that
Athos somehow had waited for me to take him home…
“ When completely happy, Athos just lays
down next to me with a long purr like a bear –
just amazing and irresistible!” Birgit
I always loved his nature: He can be very cuddly, calm and
relaxed, and as soon as I snap my fingers, he is full of
energy, streaks for the ball, and can’t get enough.
We both enjoy our long daily walks, and pretty much every
day there is some time for Athos to play off-leash with his
doggie friends; he is gentle with the little dogs or my rabbit
( see photo at left ), but also likes a good wrestle with the
bigger ones. Athos has brightened up my life, and I simply
cannot imagine a day without him anymore as he
constantly puts a smile on my face! Birgit

Catching up with Ori 5 years after his
adoption by Cimone and her family...
Ori has just had his 6th birthday (on September
26th) and when he had his annual booster shots
our Vet couldn't believe he was turning 6 years of
age based on his immaculate teeth, beautiful coat
and overall general health! He loves his bones!
Lamb in particular, so he alternates his evening
meal between loin chops, forequarter chops and
shanks! A meal without bones is a meal he won't eat!!!
“ I only have one child, a daughter, but
I also have a canine son!” Cimone
Ori also loves his walks which he has a minimum of one
each day! He's so in tune with us that you don't even have
to speak! He can sense if you are about to choose walking
gear or work clothes! He loves the car so we take him out
once a week into Albury to walk along the Murray River
which is his absolute favourite! Ori has more toys than
some children ( see his toy box at right ) and he loves
them all! Unfortunately he hates the rubber ones and only
likes the plush variety that he can ultimately destroy,
remove the squeaker and proceed to rip the stuffing out of!
I only have one child, a daughter, but I also have a canine
son! We all love him more than words can ever explain
and he returns this love ten fold! ! He's our baby! He is the
most amazing dog with the biggest heart and I'm so glad
he's just 6 and we will have many, many more years
together! It has truly been the best 5 years, adopting Ori
has been the most amazing reward! Cimone
A big thank you to Monika’s DoggieRescue for giving Ori a second chance at a happy life!
