2012 Me and My Rescue Contest Contest

Cody -
My adopted dog's rescue story:
I rescued Cody almost 2-years ago from the Appalachian Great Pyrenees Rescue. Soon after adopting Cody, I decided to open my own law firm. One of the many perks of running my own business was the opportunity to bring my dog to work. I quickly learned Cody’s role at the office was more than just an office mascot. Unfortunately most people seeking an attorney are experiencing trying times in their life. However, clients would immediately smile at the sight of Cody and inquiry about the breed. Cody, who mostly slept in the reception area after being walked to work, would gladly accept clients petting him and would try to persuade them to rub his belly as he maneuvers on his back. You then see the anxiety and sadness melt away from the clients. I found that the sight of my large, mellow dog brought peace and strength to people. His presence help facilitate consultations with clients about their difficult issues. Cody also helps to calm children, who call him a polar bear, prior to testifying in court regarding a family law issue. Cody has been a real asset to my law firm and a loving companion.

It's amazing to read Susy's story, and I am not easily amazed. WHO would throw away such an obviously GREAT dog? Hard to conceive of a dog going from the pound in such bad shape to doing the job she does for America's wounded Soldiers. We could all take a lesson from that plucky GSD. Good going, Susy and Debbie!

Some of these dogs aren't really rescued dogs.=( If you got from a pet store you didn't really "rescue"it.If you got from a shelter then yes you did save it because it would be put to sleep.Pet stores don't do
But on the bright side, there are some really good rescue stories here;I enjoy reading them.
