Whippet Dog Photo Contest: Hello Dolly! A Rescue Success

Dolly takes her bunny for a snooze

Dolly takes her bunny for a snooze

My name is Dolly. I'm 3 years old and I found a forever home this year with a new Mom and Dad through Whippet Rescue (WRAP). My foster mom "Aunt Julie" was also great, but now having a whole house to myself is awesome.

Oh yeah.....there's this thing about their cat.....her name is Portia and she's a strange kind of "dog" as far as I'm concerned. They were worried about me, because she looks like "prey", but I prefer my stuffed bunny.

Portia follows me all around, and pops out of little kitty cubbyholes at me, which can be pretty scary. But Mom and Dad like her, so it must be okay to share the bed, which is the favorite place for both of us when our people are in it.

I like my Dad's reading chair too! Life is good.

A cherished new friend
by: The Dube's

Dolly looks like she has adjusted wonderfully. No wonder, the parents are super people. When you found Dolly, she was meant to fill a void in your lives. It's so great that this dog, that only wants to be loved can give so much love back to you, unconditionally. Give a big hug to her for us. Hope to meet her soon. Do people have new family arrival parties for their pets? Hope so?

Dolly Hit the Jackpot!
by: Lindsey

I am so happy to see this update on Dolly. From this picture, it is clear that Dolly is "home." After one time talking to the couple who would later become Dolly's Mom and Dad, I knew any of our WRAP dogs would be lucky to be adopted by them! Thank you for the update, and thank you for providing such a wonderful home for Dolly!

We're neighbors
by: Anonymous

Dolly now lives across the street from me. She is a lucky gal to have found such a wonderful new mom and dad. She is definitely a people person, having come to greet me the first time I met her. I know that Portia and her will become great friends.

by: Roxy

I am a Doxie and I see Dolly out walking with her new Mom & Dad, we live on the same Street, so we say Hi to each other. I know she likes her new home, she is spoiled just like me. See you on the next "WALK"
