Happy Tails

Since it opened in August of 2012, Before the Bridge has rescued more than 500 dogs. There have been countless pickups, vet visits, fundraisers, and adoption fairs. There are long days and sad days, but no days better than the ones where a sweet senior dog finds their forever home and family. Here are just a few of our dogs with a “happy tail” to tell.

CHARLIE ● Chihuahua ● Male ● 12 years. ABBEY ● Min Pin ● Female ● 13 years. Charlie and Abbey a bonded pair who were owner relinquished due to moving. They took the two other dogs with them instead. Charlie and Abbey are very hard to get a picture of together so we'll work on getting a better shot up here. Both are up to date with shots and are housetrained. Charlie has a belly band on but does ask to go outside in our very cold weather. He is apparently a barker but we have not heard his bark and he has been here over a week. We were told Abbey has balance issues but have not seen any evidence of that. She has mastered the ramp from the deck to the yard. Both dogs are polite and loving dogs. They are very quiet as well. They are looking for a home together.
