Reggie

Rescue helps families in many ways. Meet Reggie. He started out in life with a Mom and Dad. He was actually a gift for his Mom. Before long he had two little girls to play with. Reggie taught them how to walk by holding on to his fur.

When the girls were about 8 yrs old, their family was faced with the tragedy of a divorce. Dad would raise the girls and Reggie. So far Reggie was still a happy Basset Hound.

No one wins in a divorce and Reggie was about to become the "Biggest Looser" of all. Life smiled on Dad and he remarried a lovely lady. Sadly she did not want Reggie to share their new found happy life. They would get a new puppy that would be their very own puppy. Surely someone would want to adopt a 9 yr old Basset Hound.

Openheart was so touched by Reggie's plight. The night we picked him up the girls were crying and begging for him to stay. Reggie was confused and tried to comfort them.

We brought Reggie home with us that night. We could not bear to have him sleep alone. He was depressed and refused to eat for a few days.

Lots of love and TLC made the difference. Reggie was coming to the adoption events at the Pet Stores and interacting with families. Week after week people pet him and played with him but picked out the young puppy to adopt.

One day a beautiful lady with two little girls about 8 yrs old came to the store. Reggie got so excited. They looked just like his little girls. The lady pet him and without hesitation said "What do I have to do to Adopt this Dog - I'm in love with him" When we told her his story she cried. Reggie had spent 8 long months in Rescue - he was waiting for the right family. Look at his picture. That's his forever little girl smiling with him. Donations helped us care for Reggie until the perfect family showed up.
