Winter Blues? Cheer up with this video of Una & his Friends— "I've got my love to keep me warm!"


Some have been asking for an update on Una, our puppy who survived being shot in the face. With more bitter cold upon us, here's a video to warm your heart: Una and his friends enjoying a snow day earlier this week.

More about Una including photos of him in his home country:

Also in this video are Una's international group of friends!

  • paraplegic Gus from Mexico
  • the black speed demon on wheels, Snoop from Tunis, who used to walk on his front legs only as he had such horrible pressure wounds on his heels after being injured,
  • 2-legged sheltie Poppy,
  • paraplegic sheltie Mick from Saudi Arabia and Una's best friend (he ditches his wheels early in the video!),
  • and, sweet shy Lollipop from Iran who suffered a devastating injury before coming to us and now walks with peg legs.

Introducing Jimmy and JohnJohn, two German Shepherd pups, about 6 months old, small for their age, recently arrived at Home for Life. They were surrendered with their littermates to a local shelter but were very thin and unsocialized. The shelter placed them in foster homes and supported the fosters with many resources including training and behavioral coaching.

Photographer @MarkLuinenburg was at Home for Life® last week for fall photos. He's always curious to see what we come up with for our favorites—maybe the trees for the forest but certain photos mean a lot because we know all that a particular animal has been through.
