Sadie was found early one morning all alone on an isolated section of dirt road, no more than 15 weeks old.  Soon after entering our foster program, it was discovered Sadie was suffering from Parvo.  She was immediately rushed to our vet where she received immediate medical intervention.  Sadie made a full recovery and is now enjoying her days spent exploring the woods with her best buddy and hooved friends!  Sadie is a happy little girl and her forever family is forever grateful that Sadie's life was saved.
Champ was thrown out at a stop sign, on a dirt road, during a rainstorm, on the very day college football season began.  He was so scared. A kind hearted dog found him hiding behind a tree, soaking wet.  Champ was welcomed into the DRDR program with loving arms and was adopted shortly following his vetting.  He is in heaven with his new family and has four great kids to give him lots of love and attention.  Champs family is so excited to have this little guy become the newest member of their adventurous clan!  
This boy, a Louisiana Catahoula Leopard pup, found his forever home so quickly that he didn't even make it on our adoptions page! Leroy was discovered on a dirt road chasing after the car that dumped him. He is one lucky dog and now has a farm to run on, two new doggy sisters, and even gets to sleep on the human bed! 
Flower, named after our favorite Bambi character, was found sitting helplessly in the middle of a dirt road by a fellow Dirt Road Doggie who brought her to the safety of his foster family.  Flower's Forever Family turned out to be her Foster Family, who fell in love with this tenacious rat terrier mix as soon as they met. Congrats to Flower and her Family!
Being born to neglectful owners who move off and leave you, your siblings, and parents behind to beg for food on a dirt road isn't a great way to start out life. Despite a rough start Sophia has truly gone from ditches to riches, spending her days whiling away the time at a country club, where her new Daddy works.  Who's up for a round of Golf with this pretty Lady?  We ARE!  Congrats to Sophia and her sophisticated new life!
Sinbad was dumped on a dirt road  and spent two weeks desperately searching for the family who left him!  After realizing he was in need of some help he found his salvation in DRDR.  This great pup came knowing many useful tricks and has now found the forever family of his dreams that promises to never leave him alone and scared again.    Congratulations Sinbad, you deserve your Happy Tail Ending!  
Being born to neglectful owners who move off and leave you, your siblings, and parents behind to beg for food on a dirt road isn't a great way to start out life. Despite that rough start Chloe, now known as Miss Molly, has found her happy ending with her new parents and two furrever brothers and even a kitty cat to call her very own!  She loves playing all day and snuggling on the couch with the whole gang!  Congratulations Molly, you got yourself a wonderful family!
Little Chappy was found sitting on a dirt road about three days after someone completely broke his bottom jaw. Now healed and in tip top shape, he is thrilled to have found his forever family, the Hammonds.  Chappy looks forward to family vacations in the RV and playing with his new fur brother and sister.  Congrats Chappy, you are something special and we are so excited you found such a loving family to call your very own!
Fate has a way of working things out sometimes.  Lily didn't know that the day she was thrown away onto a highway and almost hit by an 18 wheeler that her life was about to change in a very wonderful way.  This little Jack Russel Terrier, who most likely was used as a back yard breeder for years, worked her way into the hearts of her foster family, and they have decided that she is the newest memeber of the Randall clan! Congrats to Lily, what a lucky lady!       
Charlie wasn't sure what was going on when he was abandoned late one Friday night, but he knew if he used his coon hound scents he could sniff out some help.  Despite being a Treeing Walker Coonhound, we believe Charlie was dumped because of his fear of gunshots.  He is enjoying his forever family, his new pack of fur siblings, and his comfy crate. Charlie is very patient, considerate, and kind. His adopted family loves him so much. Thanks DRDR!    
Somehow this 13 pound ball of love was found wandering around all by himself.  We can only assume someone purposely lost him and we just can't imagine why as Marco is nothing but a doll baby.  His new family, the Gunderson's, are thrilled to have found the little boy of their furry dreams.  He is having so much fun playing with his new sisters and loves being a house dog that will never be forgotten again!

Sonny was abandoned by the highway and for a long time would follow trucks that looked similar to the bad people who threw him away. When he came to DRDR, he was very skinny, and as is the case with a lot of our dumped dogs, Sonny was diagnosed with stage 2 Heartworms. He recovered fully and is good as new!  Sonny now spends his days playing on a proper farm with his new mom, Karen, pigs, chickens, cats, and two collies as his new best friends. Hooray for Sonny...taking the long way home! Happy tails to our sweet, gentle boy!
Another homeward bound hound. Thanks to the Shoemakers, Nigel has been adopted!! Poor Nigel was dumped in the middle of an asphalt road after being shaved bald.  He was very scared and wouldn't leave the road despite the fact his little feet were burning and had no fur to protect his pink skin from sunburn. To add insult to injury, Nigel was diagnosed with heartworms. After the 90-day treatment, Nigel found his forever home. Happy tails sweet Nigel - now Taco, you will be missed.
