It never ceases to amaze me the ability dogs have to bounce back. Their hearts are open to such forgiveness, and such passion for unbridled living, that when they find a loving home their transformations can be remarkable. Biscuit is one such dog…
Biscuit is a Shetland Sheepdog who was rescued in August of 2010 off of the streets in North Carolina. He was severely malnourished, his fur coat was almost non-existent, and he was missing multiple teeth. Biscuit likely lived in a puppy mill as his back legs are deformed from likely spending too much time in cramped, unhealthy, quarters. Biscuit was then taken to a sheltie rescue in Frederick, Maryland, where he lived with many other shelties in the hopes of getting adopted.
We had the fortunate opportunity to meet Biscuit in December of 2010. When we first met Biscuit he was very sad and extremely timid, and we were not sure that he would ever come out of his shell. We decided to adopt Biscuit on the spot, and he has been a loving member of our family ever since. Gone is the shy, apprehensive Biscuit. In its place is a confident, friendly, and handsome Biscuit with a zest for life.
Fortunately, Biscuit’s life has dramatically changed for the better and he does not even look like the same dog when we met him. Biscuit has literally gone from living on the street to becoming an Orvis Cover Dog Winner; the dog representing the Orvis Petfinder Commitment promoting dog rescue; and a Jones Soda Co. winner — appearing on the Green Apple flavor of Jones Soda!
Most importantly, our lives have been permanently changed for the better since rescuing and adopting Biscuit. Biscuit has been a tremendous blessing to us and we encourage anyone considering getting a dog to first consider all of the rescue and shelter dogs who are in need of furever homes who will really appreciate your love and care. Rescue and shelter dogs’ loyalty and love towards their families is unwavering.
