Adopted! Yayyy Piper!
When we lost our beloved Yorkie-poo “Scamp” two years ago my wife and I said we would never get another dog. Scamp had come from the SPCA, having been dropped off by an owner that could no longer care for him. Our new dog “Piper” came from RainCoast Dog Rescue. She is a white and black Terrier mix. Rescued by Jesse and brought to Victoria, Piper spent a week with a loving foster family before coming to her forever home with us. At first shy and withdrawn Piper spent her first days with us barely eating and just lying on her new bed. With patience and lots of love over the last three weeks Piper now bounds down the hall in pursuit of her favourite stuffed toy and we spend more time sitting on the floor playing fetch and tug-of war with a little dog than sitting in a chair. I’ll be 70 in a few months and I think I was starting to show my age. Playtime with Piper has brought a joy back into our home that we had so sorely missed. In his poem “The Power of a Dog” Rudyard Kipling said “ You will discover how much you care, And will give your heart to a dog to tear.”
RainCoast Dog Rescue went above and beyond with support and advice in adopting Piper. Jesse was always available by phone or email and showed his dedication to rescuing dogs. Thanks Jesse.
