Birkin on treadmill

Birkin

The first thing you notice about Birkin (besides her adorable face) is her extremely happy demeanor. Even when she’s not feeling too hot, she’ll greet you with a grin and a happy tail. We first met Birkin in June 2014 when she came to us for limping on her right rear leg.  We were hopeful that therapy would prevent surgery, but unfortunately she was just too active! Dr. Zenoni referred her to Dr. Wolf at Premier Veterinary Group for a surgical consultation. It turns out that Birkin had a fully torn cranial cruciate ligament (CCL) and a luxating patella- which could only be corrected with surgery.

Birkin came back to us shortly after surgery and made an amazing recovery (although she did look pretty pathetic with a shaved leg and cone of shame)!

Dionne in Underwater Treadmill

Dionne

In November of 1996, Mary Beth was presented with a gift that has not stopped giving: a 6-week old, white, fluffy pup, weighing in at 1.2 pounds.  Tiny and adorable as she was, she quickly asserted herself as the alpha member of the family. Her name comes from Dionne Warwick (diva) and Deion Sanders (dominant personality). Despite those attributes, Dionne has been mostly laid back all her life.  She is the epitome of unconditional love, except when it comes to dogs bigger than her.  She has a long-time habit of walking up to them and nipping at their nose, but because she’s small and fast, she always got away with it. It seems even dogs can have the Napoleon Complex!  (Spoil alert: this behavior has resumed.)

Dionne loves to dress up! Over the years, she has amassed quite the wardrobe, including matching collars and leashes.  As she goes on her walks, she has delighted so many people with her variety of outfits and is appropriately dressed for each holiday.  She enjoys the extra attention and bringing a bit of joy to others!

Kayla at Starved Rock

When Laura walked into Anti-Cruelty in 2011, she had her mind set on adopting a smaller dog.  Well, all that changed when she saw a quiet dog staring at her with those ‘sad eyes’ that you just can’t resist.  Kayla was 3 ½ at that time and had been relinquished due to a family member’s allergies and then returned by another family after she ate a couch.  4 years later Laura and Kayla are attached at the hip and she has yet to eat anything she shouldn’t. Kayla is the perfect mix of hiking companion and couch snuggler!
