Success Stories

Finding forever happy homes is a rewarding experience for everyone involved.  Here we share a few of our successful endings.

Leo didn't have the best start in life. He was born in a puppy mill somewhere up north. Sadly, he was taken from his mother before he had turned just 8 weeks old. Then he was put on a truck and sent all the way to Florida.

Recently neutered male, 8 years old, 107#. He looks like a Newfoundland mix.

17 months old Marnie was turned in to the shelter because her family could not afford her health care. Here is her Foster family write up about her.

mike3We didn’t know a whole lot about Mike’s background when my wife and I adopted him in September 2018. All we knew was that he had been found abandoned on the streets of South Los Angeles.

To be honest, we were perfectly content with the two canine sets, male and female, over twenty-seven (27) years with our "chosen" breed, Kuvasz. But the latter set was beginning to experience some aging health issues and we wanted to make certain there were dogs in our lives.


Luna came to us as a 2 year old.  Her main issue was insecurity.  The notes from her foster home described her journey to a new home.  We were happy to have her placed in November 2017.

And then there is The Dude, our sweet, beautiful foster for life Dudley who came into rescue near death and now lives a life of luxury.

Well, no one ever said rescue was a boring endeavor! Fate, however, thought a small reminder couldn’t hurt and sent beautiful, sweet Gretel along to do the job.


In May 2013, Hunter came to Leonberger Rescue from an abusive home and despite the very recent loss of her own Leo to LP/PN Lucy Tisdale agreed to foster him.
